Merry Christmas!!

I hope you are enjoying the day and have your loved ones close by.  We will be spending the day with my parents here at home.  It should be a relaxing day of playing games, checking out all the gifts and eating good food.  Here are some photos from our day trip to Sunriver.  First we went to the Sunriver Lodge to see the gingerbread house display.  These gingerbread houses are real works of art.  It's amazing the detail they have.  The third one is a representation of the lodge, which is really nice inside.  We ate a delicious lunch there, then headed to the stables for a real honest-to-goodness sleigh ride on the banks of the Deschutes River.


It was my first time on a real sleigh and it was really neat.  The feel is altogether different from a carriage ride which we've done numerous times.  Of course, the snow was turning slushy so wasn't as good as the week before would have been, but we enjoyed it nonetheless.  Chloe sat in front with the driver and declared it was a must to do this again next year.
