December 25th, Enjoying Christmas
The ham is in the fridge since we did our big dinner last night. I leave on Tuesday with my baby brother Jackson (10), my son Jake (8 and by the way calling a 10 year old uncle is kinda weird), my brother Jeremy, and my dad Jeff, to head to the condo for a couple of days of skiing and to finish up the floors and cabinets. "J" names confuse the hell out of everyone.
I bought my Christmas gift to myself and my sanity by putting in headrest monitors in the Avalanche and a DVD player up front. We are still installing the monitors in the back and wiring everything up, but blew a fuse last night. This brings back my fondest memories of my brother Jeremy and me installing car stereos as dumb teenagers and occasionally having the puff of white smoke and the smell of burning electrical components.
All in all, my kids and family had a great Christmas, but I am glad that the holidays are ending because it means shorter lift lines (if we get any snow) when we head north. I can't wait to get some skiing in this week and it has been a month since my trip to Alta. That is just plain sad, but Mother Nature is not cooperating down south. Here's hoping for fresh tracks in 2006.
