Well, since the family decided that we were not worthy of their presence (and presents) this year, we are forced to spend Christmas alone and unloved.
You would think that after all the time effort we put into the annual Christmas calendars we would at least receive a Christmas card. At least Sam, David and Shaela remembered us.
We thought it might be nice to drive out and surprise everybody at Joan’s house Christmas Eve but the weather forecast quickly changed our mind. Right now, we would be stuck somewhere in Nevada or California in a snow storm. We were really going to go but the weather is just not in our favor.
Damn Joan and her ladder!
We are expecting a good foot plus of snow in the mountains in the next couple of days. The weather is supposed to be nice this weekend (a high of 18 degrees but clear) so we decided to go snowmobiling this weekend. We booked a four hour trip in Winterpark, CO. The lady who took our reservations talked us into a snowmobile upgrade (600CC Yamaha) for an additional $20 We will do our best to stay on the trails this year. Getting stuck in ten feet of snow is not cool (or cost effective)
Of course you will find pictures and video on this blog within the next few days.
For tonights dinner, we will be having potato soup, salad and crescent rolls. No clam chowder this year.
The real feast will be our Christmas dinner. We bought an eight pound turkey breast which I will smoke for about seven hours tomorrow. Mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce and homemade baklava (which Michelle will be making tomorrow).
Okay, this my holiday news for now.
We hope to see you all in the spring with your non-perishable Christmas gifts in tow (gift cards are always a good option). Cash is good….
Time to throw on White Christmas.
