Home for the Holidays

 Emily and I have a hard time being away from family and friends during the holidays, but we try to make the most we can out of what we have and get some traditions going for Tucson Christmas.

Most important is Barley's Santa hat. He has to wear this nonstop until Jan. 6th, when the wise men tell him it's no longer hat season.

It has been cold out here! There's already 4 feet of snow at the local ski resort -- not that you'll find us there... His and hers Mexican hot chocolate latte with marshmallows!!

I'd imagine that most people reading this blog already know that Em is an amazing woman, but in case you needed further proof: stockings hung with care, lights and boughs on the mantle, fire in the fire place, living tree with ornaments dating back to 1988, and litlle touches that boggle the male brain while warming his heart.
