Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Luke and I have been spending the Holidays in Oregon with his family. We’ve been having so much fun visiting with everyone and spending time at their cabin in the mountains which can only be reached by snowmobile! Below are some pictures of their cozy cabin πŸ™‚Christmas1Their cabin is located in the Blue Mountains of Eastern Oregon. Every other year they spend Christmas up there. It is quite a lot of work to have Christmas at the cabin…but totally worth it πŸ™‚ They prepare by hauling up all the gifts, food etc on sleds attached to snowmobiles a few days before so that we’re all ready to go Christmas Eve after Midnight Mass. After Mass we drove up to the mountains and from there we jumped on snowmobiles and it’s about a 30 minute ride. As you can see…we had a very white Christmas!
Christmas2I had lots of fun taking pictures on my NEW awesome camera! (Thank you sweet amazing husband!!!) I went out one evening with Luke and his sister Laurie and was excited to catch some pretty gorgeous light as the sun went down πŸ™‚Christmas3The rest of the pictures are from Christmas day. Below is a glimpse into the cabin and a few of our gifts. It was warm, cozy and relaxing. We’re so thankful to be able to spend time with family and extra thankful to have such a nice place to spend it at! πŸ™‚Christmas4This last picture was taken as we arrived home from the mountains. Luke’s beautiful hometown, Heppner.
