All of the couples and Kurtis got paint ball guns for Christmas. Eric was thrilled with the newest gun addition.
Luke slept through Christmas morning, but was up for the reindeer suit later that afternoon.

We don't have too many Christmas tradions, but every year we take a journey into the Hyder desert to track down a historic site. I don't know how my father comes up with one every year but one thing I have learned is there is history everywhere. This site was an old mining community named Sundad in the 1950's. The story goes that an artistic women in the community made designs and patterns in the dirt out of rock and bottles that are still there today.

The desert really is beautiful.
