Merry Christmas, friends! I'm writing to you from a genuine winter wonderland in the middle of Oregon. There is snow on the ground, we've been sledding, had tea and hot chocolate for days, and had an explosion of present opening today! It was awesome. We still have to make a snowman, take naps, decorate some cookies, and make a big old meal tonight (salmon - so Northwest!). Pictures to come, I promise. I've actually highjacked my brother-in-law's computer for this message, so it's got to be a quickie. Just know that I'm thinking good thoughts about you today (yes, you!), and hoping you're getting everything you want too!
