We had a wonderful and cold Christmas this year. We ate a lot of food, took naps, and talked to family members on the phone. Here is a picture of our Christmas tree.
Nicki and I got to go skiing with some friends while the grandparents took care of Leo.
We might hit the negative 20's in the next couple of days. Yikes! The places with open water on the river are closing up with those dropping temperatures. Here is a picture of that happening. I'm calling it agate ice. (for all those geology nerds like me)
You can already tell there is more sunlight streaming into the valley. Since solstice we have already gained an hour of daylight. The constant twilight makes for some really cool alpenglow on the mountains.
Our friend, Jason, did the triple black diamond on his belly. He's crazy, and here is a picture of the after math.
We hope you all had a great Christmas and have a wonderful new year.
