We had Thanksgiving dinner at Harvey and Gail Smith's in Middlebury earlier in the day and then Josh and the family came up that evening and spent the weekend. So we had another holiday dinner on Friday at our house. I turned out a lot of pies this year! Scott went with everyone to Okemo to ski while I baked. There were only a few trails open but they still had fun. Daniel and Arielle managed a "expert" trail!

|Russ drove us back to Vermont and helped Scott finish|
up wiring the Solar Array into the Network
|We were quickly welcomed with some snow.|
|About four inches as you can see from the railings.|

We all love playing games. Josh has copied our model of "no television" while the kids are growing up. I mean neither of us have/had television at all. We do love to watch a movie however.
Besides bridge, which only Daniel has picked up so far, our favorites right now are Carcassonne, Harry Potter Clue, Scrabble and Sorry.
