Three Pictures (value = 3,000 words)

Maiko & Toby after skiing on Sunday, November 30th. It was Maiko's 1st day of the season so she worked on getting her ski legs by practicing her turns on the courses at Kurodake Ski Area. Toby was on ski day #6 so he blazed a skin (what you put on the bottom of skis so you can climb with them) trail to the top of the mountain and then skied down over a foot (30cm+) of fresh powder. It was a blizzard up there and that is why Toby has snow stuck on his beard.
Maiko & Bomber taking a catnap on the same day (November 30, 2008) after putting up Christmas decorations (small house = small tree).
Toby and Bomber discussing the house/cafe build while reading "House Thinking" on December 5, 2008. Okay, okay...maybe Toby is doing some "House Dreaming" at the time this picture was taken.

We hope this finds you all well. It's snowing hard here and a White Christmas is not really an optional item in these parts!! We wish you and yours a happy holiday and a happy new year!!

-Bomber, Maiko & Toby
