Christmas Eve…

You would think we might decide to spend our Christmas in this gorgeous town in Switzerland for the rest of our Christmas break.  But staying true to our promises, we piled in the car Christmas Eve morning to drive back over that treacherous road to head home to Barcelona.  A good 12 hour drive… as the kids wanted to wake up to Christmas here in Barcelona.

The only problem.. it had snowed a foot or so overnight in Saanen and was still coming down.  So when we woke up… we had no idea what kinds of roads we would have to deal with.. again without snow tires or chains…

Our hotel..

All I can say, is that the drive was scary.. icy roads, few cars, white out conditions, and me worrying about us running out of gas.. and getting caught in a blizzard.  It took us several hours to make it over the mountain.. and thankfully, upon exiting the mountain, we saw people stopped putting on their snow chains.  If I were to do it again, we would have taken the train.  Driving was a bit too scary.  And we made it back to BCN, in time to pick Boo up from the the dog sitters and watch Elf.

We made it through the mountains.. to no snow…
