Alaskan Holiday!

Wow, do I have a lot to share with you from the month of December. It seems like this month has just flown by, just as all the other months have.  One of my new years resolutions, and I have many, is to sit down once or twice a week and keep this little blog on going.  Even if I don't have much to share in the world of sewing or news on the home front  I will try and publish some kind of thought or story of some kind. Please let me know when I am slacking. Now onto getting all of December's events done before the first gets here.
Just after we got Jacob and Angie moved into their new home on the 8th we took a little Christmas get away up Ogden canyon, to a place called the Alaskan Inn.  We had snow through the night before we left so it made the atmosphere even that much better.

We were able to enjoy breakfast in our room both mornings.  Look at the size of my entree, biscuits and gravy.  Oh so delicious and filling.

The cabins are all themed after the Alaskan territory.  Our little cabin was called the Orca and was decorated with murals and whale decor. 
The views from all of the windows were so pretty with the freshly fallen snow.
The french toast was oh so yummy the second morning. Oh, I forgot to mention that we were also welcomed with a bouquet of flowers, sparkling cider and a gift basket of lotion and bath wash.  It also came with an in room Spa Treatment. Wow how come we hadn't been to this place before.  It will definitely be on our list to go back.
Our first night there we ate supper at the Gray Cliff Lodge just up the road.  What a beautiful place and the meal was delightful.  Every thing there is made and prepared on sight.  You could tell the Christmas decorations have been used for many years.  Some really neat vintage items on display.

In one corner of the resturant they had just completed this little ski museum.  Very nostalgic.  If you need a quick get away thats close by I highly recommend the Alaskan Inn.  It's just the little get away I needed to get me jump started for the holiday season rush of things.

That looks like the perfect place to stay in winter! The food looks yummie and I love your little cabin. I can't believe how beautiful it is over there with the snow. A visit to Utah in winter I already have written on my bucket list!
