This year we decided to break tradition and spend ours in the majestic mountains of Silver Star Ski Resort in beautiful British Columbia. Amazing time would be an understatement but more about that later.
On Christmas Eve we held an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest with our family. There was a lot of hiding behind closed doors the weeks leading up to our vacation. Mr. Frugalista and I went to the dollar store together to shop for our sweater embellishments but his was Top Secret so I couldn't walk down the same aisles as him in case I got a sneak peak at what he was up to. He even snuck through the cash and had his bag already hidden in the trunk of the car before I emerged from the aisles with my loot.
ENTRY #1 & #2
I love the wine charms hanging from the bottom of their sweaters. My son's pays homage to that catchy tune "what does the fox say".
These two were short a few bulbs by the end of the night, literally!
Its hard to tell in the picture (these pictures were taken with an iPhone) but the sweater on the left has a strand of flashing mini lights across it.
Turn on your sound for this one...mine had audio and visual affects!
AND THE WINNER WAS...*drum roll*
MR. FRUGALISTA with his icicle sweater
And yes, he really does HATE winter!
Unfortunately we ran out of time for skating on the pond...oh well, next time.
This was one of the views from our window - so majestic!
Here are a couple of photos of the beautiful and spacious condo we rented...
On Christmas Eve near the skating pond while we prepared dinner at the condo, our daughter got engaged. Congratulations Victoria & Riley!
I'd love to hear how you spent the holidays! Did any of you participate in an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest?
