Wildfire. It's how gastro spreads and it kinda sums up our Thanksgiving holiday to Lake Tahoe...

Yep. We ALL got sick with a stomach virus, one person succumbing to the illness every 24 hours :-( Even Mr Oliver had his first bout of vomiting. I'd been feeling pretty bummed about it; to go all that way to such a gorgeous location only to be stuck indoors throwing up is a little disappointing. But in the grand scheme of things, there are much worse things that could happen and now (that I'm feeling better), I can laugh about it. Plus, there is always a silver lining - instead of whinging about how much weight I put on over the holidays, my belt now buckles a whole notch tighter then usual :P

It wasn't all bad though. Prior to getting sick, we had our first Thanksgiving dinner. Bacon stuffed turkey, deviled eggs, yam casserole, garlic mash, corn on the cob & pumpkin pie made by yours truly...

We took the kids sledding at Mt Rose...

We watched Santa & Mrs Claus arrive by vintage fire engine at Squaw Creek & saw the lighting of the Christmas tree...

We watched our little marshmallow (Michelin man?) running around happily, grinning & waving at everyone...

And caught a glimpse or two of gorgeous Lake Tahoe!

I think this means we are just going to have to book in for another snow holiday... :-)
