White Christmas!

I love Los Angeles, but I'll never get used to a sun shiny Christmas - I need to see snow!  This year we made the trek to Detroit to see friends and family.  One of my oldest and dearest girlfriends bought a farmhouse and invited us out to see the place - it's a dream come true.  She has a wonderful blog about the property that you can read about here.  The house itself is lovely but the real treat is out back!

 Just past their gorgeous vintage Airstream is a barn that houses their chickens (my favorite), dirt bikes and her husbands vintage snowmobile collection.  The kids had a BLAST racing around the property!

After a few trail rides, it was time to thaw out at the famous White Horse Inn.  Established in 1850, the White Horse Inn is the oldest restaurant in Michigan.  Lorenzo, the resident ghost is known to make appearances quite often, however we weren't lucky enough to receive a visit.  We were lucky enough to see Santa Clause though!!!  He was such a jolly man - gave the kids magical candy canes to put under their tree!
On our way out the door we grabbed some hot cocoa, gave Big Jack (our HUGE, majestic horse) a pat and hopped on the sleigh for a ride into the night.  This was truly a magical evening and one I'm sure none of us will ever forget!
