christmas eve & ski: orelle

Today we got to take a trip up to Orelle and Val Thorens for sunny, high skiing. What a beautiful day in the mountains.

After we exhausted our legs on the slopes, we all rushed home, cleaned up and went up to Villard, the next tiny village above us, to greet Pere Noel in the streets and drink vin chaud and coco .

Back at the cabin, we gathered around a warm raclette dinner, set out cookies, and Emma and Maggie left notes to Santa before stories and more time by the fire.
