(no) snow

Filed under: carmen, Lee, me, moseley — Jana @ 6:47 pm

Once again we packed up our (mostly un-needed) snow gear and headed to utah for Christmas.  The kids were really excited to go to grandma’s house and see snow.  Unfortunately it was an unusually snow-less there this year, so Moseley never really got to throw a “no ball”.

 I did however attempt snowboarding anyway… which wasn’t my best idea.  I fell about 368 million times.  And that man made snow is not soft.  As soon as Lee ushered me up the closest lift he could find  I was swept back in time to the first time I went snowboarding with him, where I am at the top of a mountain peeing my pants (figuratively)  wondering how I am going to get down.  For some reason I thought that this time would be easier because I am in much better shape now and everything.  Nope, it doesn’t really matter what state of fitness you are in, when you are flinging your body into what feels like concrete at high speeds.  I woke up christmas feeling like I’d been in a car accident.  My neck and shoulders felt like I had whiplash.  Add to that a bad head cold, and the fact that I missed the last one of my mom’s wooden stairs while holding Moseley on my hip and fell into a crumpled heap,  I was feeling like an old lady.  The only way I would ever go near a snowboard again, would be if there was about 2 feet of fresh powder to break my fall.

Here are my best (but definitely not my only) bruises:



  1. I’m sorry about you’re falling off the stairs. :( We are trying to come up with a solution to that problem, as Aunt Lauri did the same thing.
    It was great to be with all of you though! Love you!
