We have just returned home from one of the best Christmas holidays ever. We were hosted by Christine at her home in Boulder and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We went to Christmas Eve services together and then put a beef tenderloin on the Weber. The next few days we spent skiing Vail and Keystone, as well as hiking some incredible trails within walking distance of Christine's house. There may have been some hula hooping and frisbee throwing going on as well. (Pictures to follow in another blog post.) We ate at The Buff restaurant for breakfast one morning and at the Walnut Brewery for dinner one evening. We saw True Grit and loved it.
It is quite likely that this will be on next year's Christmas card since we seem to have a difficult time getting together in one place with everyone's schedules, but we'll see. Thought you would enjoy seeing what we looked like when our ski trips first began. Steve still has those RayBans tucked away somewhere. I wish I had kept those Adidas jackets. They would probably still fit C and L. We thought we would try to recreate this photo after lunch at Keystone and completely forgot to. So here are the alternative pictures.
