Happy new year!

Sorry, I know I've been gone forever--and that's forever and ever in blog years. We went to Alabama for Christmas (which, more on that later), and then on to snowboarding at Mt. Hood.

This was about my fourth time snowboarding. I'm still not great, but I can more or less do it.

That's me in the foreground. On a more hilarious note, here is me in all my gear, plus a borrowed helmet. As you can see this photo was taken right before I blasted off into space.

Have you been to the Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood? It's the one they used for exterior shots in
The Shining, and it is fairly awesome. Here is the view from the bar:

That's all I have time for right now, except for a quick GO OBAMA. But I'll be back soon.

No broken bones = successful snowboarding in my book. Plus you get to wear the stylish helmet and all...Happiest of new years to you!

ooh, snowboarding--i want to learn! looks like you had fun. i think i might be the last person on earth who doesn't know how to downhill ski. i've heard from several people that it's easier to learn snowboarding than downhill, although for now, i remain a cross-country girl.
