This may not be the promised tomorrow on the last entry, but it is still less time between entries than the previous few. Keep faith, dear reader.

Everyone is well at our home. The greatest thing to happen in recent days is the ascendency of Hyrum from the crawling caste to the uprightly mobile class. Not only is this good for his self image, it's his ticket off the damn cold floor in our drafty old poorly-heated house. He was sick for a week or so during the latter part of November, furrowing our brows with a sticky cough that threatened pneumonia. Now he is back to normal, learning to negotiate the floors with slippery socks or clompy shoes, the bugaboos of those who learn to walk in the winter. I wonder if this causes annoying scars that last into adulthood? I don't like wearing shoes to this day. Hm.

To update our many avid readers, (i fear i am the only one, but don't tell me, i like my visions of blogging grandeur) we enjoyed our trip to Yellowstone this year with the whole family and Moshe too. Dustin and Misty Crawford were able to join us this year as well, they brought their dogs Cache and Marley and we had a great time hopping from place to place.

Winter was long in coming this year, temperatures staying well into the fifties and sixties until the fourth week in November. Sheesh. Now we have been blessed with the largest amount of snow on the ground that we've had in years. Amazing what the seasons bring and how fast things can change.

Christmas is well on its way, the lights are up and "It's a Wonderful Life" has been watched. We'll now see how much eggnog i can consume afore my coronary arteries turn into swizzlesticks...
