A Canadian Christmas

We did things the Canadian way this year & spent the holidays snowboarding our little hearts out at Big White with Andy's family. I heart them!

Seriously Canucks got things all backwards. For some odd reason they think Christmas is like Halloween...picture men dressed as nuns skiing, swamp man & polar bear snowboarders, and most memorable of all a man wearing only a thong held up by suspenders as he plowed down the mountain. Oh and the day after Christmas is called Boxing Day. I thought for sure I'd see people throwing a wicked left hook, maybe some bloody faces, but no there was nothing of the sort. To top it off, we met more Australians than Canadians and found out from an Aussie himself that Canadians "treat them like slaves" working for them all winter. Hmmm...sounds kinda like Az and Cali except for, well never mind! I'll get on with the trip & let the pictures do the talking : )

at this point they were all making fun of me for wanting a picture with a tractor since Lance's family (BIL) owns several much larger in size...only an Az girl would think this was cool!

I leave you with my favorite Christmas apparel this year...Andy thinks they're disgusting : )
