Christmas 2014

Beth declared that Christmas is now Utahraptormas, so I made her a necklace of a velociraptor claw, and a website explaining the tradition.  It was fun. 🙂

Here is our rosemary tree with presents under it:

And a lovely shot of our little garden space, with snow:

Sun House Yard and Snow

It has snowed a bit here and there in November and December, but this was the first really strong snow, that stuck.  Kind of magical!

We made seeded bread with marscapone + toasted hazelnuts + blackberry honey for breakfast, and had a nice oven roasted turkey and mashed potatoes in the evening.  After it got dark, we made vanilla bean + cinnamon ice cream and watched (2/3 0f) The Desolation of Smaugh.  [Spiders!!]
