Since the weather has been so good to us in southern California, we've decided to remind ourselves what a northern hemisphere winter should be and enjoy Christmas in Utah. Coincidentally, I have two brothers living there as well as and so it's a win-win situation -- though, not for them obviously. One minor drawback to this plan is that our household goods, including virtually all our winter clothing, we shipped from Germany in July will not be available through US Customs until after Christmas. It's a sad story of neglect and delays but the short of it is we've managed to borrow enough warm clothes for the week we'll be in Utah. Hopefully a post on the trip in a week or so.
In the meantime, we wish all our friends and family, near and far, a joyful Christmas.
