Epic Ski Season Start

We had a fantastic start to our 2011-2012 ski season today and are so excited to welcome Sasha into the ranks of the mountain-rat Morningstar kids! Armed with her fancy jacket, "birdie and flower" skis, teeny-tiny boots, and incredibly patient and talented Daddy, Sasha made it down the bunny slope twice before heading in for some cocoa and beer (respectively - and they both more than earned it).

Sash did so, so well today and we are really proud of the effort that she put in. Our pint-sized skier is well on her way to the Kazakh national team!

The rest of us also enjoyed a beautiful, warm, bluebird start to our ski season.  Despite our concerns that our always-chilly gal would rebel against the snow, WanYing adored riding down in the pack and only got fussy when Mommy was annoyingly stopped to get pictures of Sasha.  This girl likes to go fast!  She might feel differently once her frantic, excited wiggling finally lands us on our respective tushes, but today Mommy managed to stay on both feet, much to our joint delight.

Today was indeed an auspicious start to the new ski season.  It was one of those days where you just stand back and marvel that you could be right here, right now, with these amazing people, experiencing the joys of family and snow.

We are immeasurably blessed.
