Our Busy Holidays…

This holiday season was fun and busy. After a whirlwind exam week and finishing my grades, we headed to Tennessee to visit with ALL members of my family. It’s a new thing to have everyone in one place! After that short visit, we had a lovely Howe dinner and tree lighting to attend, a birthday/New Year’s Eve party, a lovely visit from Paul and Alita, a miniature HVA reunion, many many many games of indoor soccer, and some major rocking on RockBand. Going back to school yesterday was actually a bit of a relief. But, of course, the hectic HVA life is keeping me busy. I’m working on a Warren Miller fund raiser for next Saturday night, starting rehearsals for the senior class play, and hoping to have some snow for an upcoming trip to the farm. Oh, and did I mention that I’m going to Scandinavia with the music tour for Spring Break? It never ends…!! 🙂 Oh well, I’m not funny (like Jason), but I’m trying to keep you posted. Here are some highlights of our vacation:

I like to call this series “Santa got plowed over by a reindog…” (maybe you all have some better titles for it…)

  1. Starting the last week in January, Santa and Reindog will be opening for Seigfried and Roy on the Vegas Strip. Then in the spring it’s on to Branson, Missouri!

  2. Since comments on this posting seem to be lagging a bit, allow me to add that apart from the attack on Santa by a rampaging Labrador retriever, these photos contain evidence of one of our best Christmases ever! It was a time to be savored. And, speaking only for myself, I also received one of the most wonderful gifts I have ever found under a Christmas tree–a matching set of individual portraits of five people who are very special to me.

    For those who may not be able to sense from the photos just how special this Christmas turned out to be–well, I guess you just had to be there. We must do it again!

  3. Daddy, I’m so glad that you enjoyed your Christmas so much, and I’m especially glad that you loved your pictures. I’ll have to remember your enthusiasm about this gift for future momentous occasions…

  4. Apparently I only take normal photographs when I’m told to. Lovely journalistic approach, m’dear. It appears that your holidays were busy and fanTAStic!
