The holidays this year was one to remember. I spent Christmas in Colorado with Casey and her family. It had snowed a couple days before I got there, so it was white and snowy the whole time with clear blue skys and relatively mild temperature. It was pretty perfect.
SNOW! It was crazy to see so much of it everywhere. I thought this was a pretty cool sight, with so many cars, so much snow and the Rockies in the background.
I got in pretty early in the morning. Casey and her sister got in the day before, so Casey picked me up from the airport and we headed home. After a quick lunch, I napped for a bit to catch up on some sleep I missed out on from the night before. After I woke up, we headed outside, found a big hill and went sledding.
There were only shots of me from behind sledding, so here I am hiking back up. It's a ton of fun going fast and wiping out in the snow, but it's a little workout getting back up.
And here she is flying off an unforeseen jump that catapulted her a few feet into the air. Pretty rad! We ended our Christmas eve with a delicious dinner cooked by Lindsay and a couple rounds of "Oh Hell!" a card game Casey and I taught the rest of the family.
The next day was Christmas. Unfortunately, I was too busy opening up presents to get any good pictures. But I did get some awesome presents that I am very excited to use! We had a pretty relaxing morning. In the afternoon, Casey and I started preparing dinner that we would eat at the grandparents' house.
The next day we headed down to the Newlins' new land where they plan to build a cabin. It was so beautiful and tranquil and I am very excited for them.
As if that wasn't enough, on our way out we saw some wildlife.
We left later that day and headed back for San Francisco. I had six days between the day we got back to pack up all my stuff and get ready to move out. Casey and I just moved into an apartment in the Inner Richmond early last week and are still settling in. We are making big strides though and hopefully we will be unpacked and free of boxes and bags soon.
