Christmas '08 is in the books.

and what a Christmas it was.

we drove up Sunday to my brother in law's in northern California and spent the night. the next day we headed over the summit to my sister in law's for the fun.

we had to chain up partway across the summit...THAT was fun and the best damn $40 we spent.

of course, i could blah, blah, blah for ever, but what you want are photos.
and i believe in giving the public what they want.

yeah, i know. it's a fountain. but it's a frozen fountain. the only thing flowing is the top part. the rest of it is water falling down ice. just before i took it, there was a bird having a drink.

talk about an ice cold soda.

the Boy and i - taken by his sister. see - only two chins this time. i knew i liked that girl.

speaking of...

i don't think i need to explain i?

Christmas lights. in the snow. on the roof of the garage. cool stuff.

i love the insanity of presents with kids.
i love sitting in my sister-in-law's bedroom for three hours wrapping gifts.
i love the view from my niece's bedroom.
i just plain love being there.
tomorrow: the last post of the year and photos of me sledding. for real.
