Merry Christmas everyone! We hope you had a great holiday and enjoyed the company of your families. spent Christmas in Cuyahoga Falls and had a surprisingly relaxing week.

We arrived early in the week and I was fortunate to be able to work from home while Kelly was able to enjoy the woods/scenery/solitude with Ashley. It was a much needed break from the city.

Here are some highlights:
  • Bought a pretty slick bb gun w/ scope and had some shooting games with my brothers (yes, I am almost 30 years old)
  • Used my old climbing rope and made a tree swing over a ravine
  • Built a few fires
  • Went trudging through the woods/rivers around my parents house
  • Went to the Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State NBA basketball game and sat in a private suite
  • A flock of turkeys literally attacked our bedroom door today but by the time I grabbed the bb gun they had flown away
  • Played poker with my brothers, dad and grandfather
  • Went climbing with Kelly for the first time in a LONG time and found out how out of shape I actually was
  • Went swimming with Ashley
  • Went on a long hike through the woods with the entire family
  • Had a cookie decorating contest with everyone (somehow a "sunny side up egg" cookie won)
Here are some pictures that my mom took on her camera over the week: My brother Lee is in the process of uploading and posting pictures he/I took using his camera. I'll post a link to his Picasa account as soon as they are up.
