Holidays at Home

Hello folks!

Remember us? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Life went and got in the way of our blogging routine, and set us back a ways. We have had some ups and downs this season, but we ended up spending a pair of lovely holidays with friends and family, reminded of how precious and special life and our loved ones really are. This year has been an exciting one, having taken us from the mighty Antarctic, through the rolling hills of New Zealand, atop the oxygen-deprived heights of the Himalayas, across the stiflingly hot plains of the Indian subcontinent, and finally to a quaint and comfortable life in the mountains of Montana.  It even threw a special little cat in for good measure. We’ve made some new friends, strengthened old bonds, learned valuable lessons, and said some hard goodbyes. As the season winds down, we hope to return to posting more frequently. Stay tuned!

Christmas Eve was spent decorating cookies, a first for all of us in years.  Some of the results were a little disturbing.

We took a break from the egg nog, the opening of presents, and the Christmas cookies to go settle the score with a game of H.O.R.S.E. in the snow.
