This year, my Christmas trip to Oregon was spent entirely in Corvallis. This wasn't exactly the plan, but snow storms kept me from heading to Portland. I am not going to complain because this gave me more time to play with my niece, Anna. I also did some family time, visiting old friends, trail running, and lots of eating, including American Dream pizza - twice!
The family Christmas photo. Anna found many things more exciting than the camera. We have a couple pictures of her playing with my hair.
We did some book reading.
I tried to get Anna excited about playing the piano.
My dad (aka Grandpa) entertains Anna by mimicking her.
Moss. Josh always says he really misses moss - we don't have any here in Colorado. I got a new camera for Christmas and it is small enough to not be too much of a hassle to carry while running. This is at the end of the trip after all the snow melted. I did quite a few runs in 4 inches of snow - I thought I left Colorado to get away from that stuff.
