The only problem and it is a major flaw is that the condo is not near the parking lot. It faces the street (Meridian) and is exactly in the center from the parking on either side of the complex. This makes loading and unloading a huge undertaking especially with all our snow gear. Hector has to park on the side of the street, turn the hazard lights on and we begin the loading/unloading process. It is kind of hectic and hurried since traffic is zipping by and debris goes all over.
Other than that, this place is awesome.

My cousin mentioned that a friend of hers bonked his head on slopes and ended up with short term memory loss. Yikes.
Then I saw Tyler's helmet...um when did this happen?
Above is the side view of his helmet which looks okay but...
it shouldn't have a crack...
or a major rip through the plastic and the styrofoam. On our last day, Hector and Tyler hung out on the slopes. Tyler did have a big fall and that is the only incident that I can come up with to account for the damage. So Tyler will be needing a new helmet ASAP.

See that biggish purple rock , just to the right of Josh's head? That was his goal.
See how much he loves climbing? He is frozen in place....yeah, we won't be doing this again for a long time.

I'm surprised the rescue people weren't laughing and rolling in the snow. I would have.

Here is the link to learn more. The perfect eyeliner, kind of like liquid but with more control and it stays put for a long time. I tend to rub my eyes or get dust particles in my eye (unrelated to the product) so the tears might rub some of the liner off. But for the most part, it lasts for the day.
That's not all what I bought while in Vegas. Lupe wanted to get some Christmas shopping done there so we headed to the Fashion Mall about 1 mile away from the Bellagio. We walked there so naturally we gambled our way there which made our one way trip 2 hours. :) Lupe saw the Sanrio store (home to Hello Kitty) and wanted to go in. One of her co-workers loves Hello Kitty and even has a wallet. I didn't mention to Lupe that I had a crystal encrusted Hello Kitty mirror which weighs a ton. Shhh! :) She is browsing and so am I when I came across this.....
My 2 favorite products of the year found in Vegas. Yay for me!

So I have several items posted but my first project is the Carrot Top which is an elf hat that uses up various yarns to create stripes. Starting at the top, you gradually increase the stitches to fit the intended person. I made one for both the boys which they still love. I didn't take pictures of those for Ravelry but made another baby elf hat with pastels and posted pictures of that. Today I check my messages and it requested the use of the image to post. Cool! So my hat is one of the representations of the pattern. Here is the link although I think you have to be a member to see it.
this is the picture that they used although Torchic's face is kinda obsured but that's due to flickr. I guess the site wasn't able to handle the awesomeness. Hey I can make a baby hat from this pattern for baby D. That should take no time at all. Got to get started on that one.
I bought a rainbow colored yarn and immediately looked for a cute baby sweater pattern for baby D. I found an adorable baby kimono sweater and it took me 2 days. I love that!
Isn't it cute? It only needs one button for the inside and a picture of the baby wearing it.

This fight was entertaining to say the least although Semin's fighting style is very questionable. Seriously? I could pound on the guy better than that! :)
Okay I have to talk about my hockey experience last night. The Kings played the Flyers and we arrived early enough to see the teams warm-up. The seat that is usually empty between us and the older couple was taken by a young woman (Flyers fan). We joked around a bit that we would beat her up, etc. and she said that the lady seated in front of me would protect her (another Flyers fan). Okay...so we're just sitting there...I'm eating my nachos when I see a blur, then the woman in front grabs her head/face and lurches forward. OMG, she just got nailed by a puck from one of Flyers! She has her head in her lap while her husband has his arms around her. Ushers come over and the paramedics are summoned. There is blood...and they leave with the paramedics. Yikes.
Uhhh, then I realize that if she wasn't there, guess who was next in line behind her. Yup...me! I would have been hit in the chest/shoulder (?) but I was grateful that it wasn't me. We waited for them to come back but they never did. I hope she is okay...she'll have a great story to tell but still...that sucks. At least the little boy that got the puck gave it to her husband so she has a souvenir and maybe some stitches.
So I'm a little more cautious now because it's not the first time a puck has flown over to me during warm-ups. Another time, a puck flew over my shoulder bounced off the seat behind me and grazed my hand. Of course the puck went a few rows ahead so I didn't get it but phew....
So, warning to those we give our tickets to....WATCH OUT FOR PUCKS! Especially during warm-ups. The teams are out on the ice with buckets of pucks and they're shooting them all at the same time so be careful.
And the best thing is that the Kings won!

The crowds at Canyon. Seriously lots of people at the lifts lines so the wait was 15 minutes or more but Mammoth is so big that there is plenty of room to ski.
