Christmas 2012

I like Christmas as much as the next person.  Especially the special products that come out just for the season.

And who doesn't like dressing up their pets in ridiculous costumes?

Christmas trees are good too. Our friend Rhonda was feeling so sorry for us because we were not planning on having a tree (because we thought Drew would not be home for Christmas Eve), that she gave us this uber cute little tree all decorated with mini ornaments, ornaments for "D" and "L", and a star!

Which is all the tree we ever really needed, but when we were driving past a house in our neighborhood that happened to be removing a large spruce tree, I screeched to a stop and asked the nice gentlemen if I could snag a few boughs to make our house smell good.  They said "sure" and even chucked some big branches in the back of the truck for me.  Once we got them home, we realized we had the tippy top of the tree, so Drew went to work and trimmed it into a Christmas tree for us. 

Sure, it isn't the typical conical shape, but it made a nice Sponge Bob Square Tree.

On Christmas Eve day we bundled up and went snowshoeing in Millcreek Canyon.

We were very happy to be spending the day together! 
Drew had to leave for work around 10 a.m. on Christmas Day, so I took advantage of the fresh snow and skied all of the groomed track White Pine Nordic Center has to offer - about 12 miles. 
I was feeling lonely without my buddy, so I picked up some Doritos and a some watery convenience store beer and finished off the holiday. As Drew says, "days on, days off".  Between the birthday trip to Moab and a great Christmas Eve, we had had a fun few days off.
