One of the things we haven't taken care of yet with our new apartment is getting internet. That's still a ways off. Or not. We'll see. And this blog is one of the foreseen and I'm sure deeply missed victims of this. But we've been just as busy, it being the holiday season and all. Here's a collag├ęd update.

Every year my extended family in the Auburn area celebrates Christmas together at the beginning of December in a huge progressive dinner. We open name gifts, see about half of everybody's houses and decked out halls. This year Chrissy's parents were in town to join in. It was great to have them chauffeur us around :-)

Right after Thanksgiving some good friends from high school invited us to go to a Christmas market (basically) in a nearby historic mining town (yes, I have described Auburn as an historic mining town---this is a different one---we're a dime a dozen up here). Here are Nancy and Elliot and my friend Melissa.

Whenever we go to download pictures from our camera it always seems that there are more pictures of me than of Chrissy, and in most of these pictures I am doing something ridiculous (if you can believe that). So in view of showing some of pictures in a way that preserves Chrissy's personal diginity, I've put some of the recent examples in some collages by themselves.

By the way, here's the first pictures of our new kitchen. We'll get graphic photos of our place up soon. Promise.
