We're hoping to check in around 1pm Friday, if possible. I know Stephen said we might be able to check in early. We will arrive around 7pm after picking up kids in Ellensburg at 6pm

For our Living Nativity video, Jenna is going to make a "manger" out of a cardboard box and hay.

We are bringing two sleds. I think we have an old one or two...
We will bring our tobbogan + 1 sled. We r playing Santa & Ms. Claus again if okay. Of course it's OK! Wouldn't be tree-cutting without it!!! remind me, isn't there a little tree on the fireplace already? Did it have lights?

* FYI for everyone's eating pleasure our Mac n Cheese recipe is kinda low-carb (with just under 1 lb. of pasta per 9x13" pan + 1/2 cup flour). It is mostly all cheese (2 3/4 lb), cream/milk (1 qt) and Tabasco (of course). YUM

I was thinking of bringing a kid craft/activity depending on what I come up with after visiting the craft store (not on black friday!!!) You know, scissors, paste, markers...We paid the clean-up fee right?? :) hahaha Yes!!! Perfect idea! and so glad we paid cleaning fee this year!

Do we need more bacon?? We might bring our own salt-cured bacon..Sounds perfect! We were thinking it might be a good idea to cook bacon before we get there- that way we dont spend all morning cooking. We can put it in a dish in the oven and warm it up. what do you think? I am going to have all the pancakes made before hand.

PING PONG AWESOME ULTIMATE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME (We've been storing the trophy all year, so we'll bring it back so it can keep "traveling.")
FYI: We have ordered fresh snow to appear at the magical time when the children spy flakes falling outside, prompting chaotic excitement involving the immediate donning of outerwear in anticipation of catching snow upon one's tongue, parents at the ready with video cameras to record the frantic location of boots and mittens.
