Christmas Break Photo Essay

 We kicked off our Christmas vacation by building gingerbread houses with our friends the Seegmillers. Cristy's was the bus, Neal built the tower, Andy built the two-story cottage, and I built the "Merry X-mas" house. Good times!

 We went to Texas, and visited our favorite park for some high-adventure box sledding.

 Andy's turn. This is probably one of the steepest inclines in my hometown, and box sledding is a time-honored tradition.

 Linda (sister-in-law) takes her turn.  Looks like she lost the box!

Andy and I walked at this park a lot when we were dating. 

 My brother (Jonathan) and his wife (Linda).

 Just look at that face! Sweet old beagle, Zoe.

 "Hi, my name is Rachel, and I am a Mormon."

 Beth Marie's.  If you know, you know.

 Rocky, the pug.

Andy's (maternal) grandparents. MoMo seems to be disapproving of something that PoPo finds very funny. 

It was a great trip--but altogether WAY too short.

Hope your Christmas was great, too.  And Happy New Year!  Any good resolutions this year?
