A few days after Christmas Anders and I went to a birthday party for our friend, Katie. She’s three. Her parents, and my friends–Jessica and Chris–had a little celebration for her at the Mill Creek cabin in the Mill Creek drainage of the Absaroka Mountains. Why, yes, that is the largest drainage in the west side of the Absaorkas.
To be honest, Anders was a little tired–and thus a bit cranky–but he did allow me to pull him around on a sled. He was also able to eat THREE pieces of pizzas and a cupcake. That plus a lot of hugs got him through the party.
There was a lovely fire outside, yummy chili on the stove and a delicious winter drink called “the ski hill” or something like that. (Jess correct me in the comments and share the recipe if you want…)
If you want to read more about renting Forest Service cabins, check out my post on my other site, which is from a Montana Parent article I wrote.
Just in! Here it the super delicious recipe from Jess:
The Ultimate Ski Lift Drink:
1 shot Peach Schnapps
1 shot Coconut Rum
Top with hot chocolate, whipped cream and coconut sprinkles (for snow). Cheers!
