This year we went south to Phil's parents for Christmas. It rained so hard on the way down that all we could see was a haze of gray, but we finally made it! We had a great time relaxing around the house, going shopping in Eugene, and celebrating Christmas.
One of the highlights of the trip for me was seeing my old roommate Candie! I hadn't seen her since our wedding since she has been off galavanting around Laos and Australia. It was a short visit, but it was wonderful to catch up and I got to meet her Laotian boyfriend, Lay (hope I spelt that right).
