...Hugh and the children went snowboarding at the nearby ski area, making use of the Man-Cub's Christmas present...
The Teenager didn't take her Christmas present with her, she was too afraid to lose it.
Her present was an amethyst ring that replaced the amethyst ring that she lost earlier this fall. The original ring had been a gift from her father on Christmas day 2010 and she loved that ring, needless to say, losing it was traumatic for her, so; when Hugh found the replica of it, he was quick to snap it up. The look on her face when she opened it was worth every penny he spent.
Which is why it is safely tucked away, leaving The Teenager free to hit the slopes without fear. As one does the day after Christmas, apparently.
