It's hard to believe it's already been a whole year since I joined the family. Time sure flies. My first real Christmas here was awesome even if there wasn't any snow. There's nothing quite like the feeling you get when you wake up on Christmas morning. We got gifts, sang Christmas carols on a brisk trail ride outside, watched Christmas movies, sipped hot chocolate with marshmallows, ate pumpkin pie with whipped cream, and stayed up super late reinacting our own version of Annie. I never wanted the day to end.
Mom took a couple of pictures of us by the downstairs tree. It's a huge Douglas Fir that smells wonderful.
