Getting there was a bit tough because of the snow storm.
But we made it in time for a warm dinner with 6 other families (19 kids all together)
The next morning it was quiet and beautiful.
So we went sledding, and I personally had as much fun as I did when I was 7 or 8.
And then there was a fire and all the boots got lined up in front of it . And all the wet mittens and hats on top of the fireplace.
And on Sunday we went to the Monastery for the service and then there was a Christmas party for the kids with a real, or almost real Ded Moroz..
