Our first Christmas here came with some snow....nothing accumulated though. Santa found us and the kids were happy about that! My brother, his girlfriend, and her three children were up to visit us this past week. Rick's girlfriend's parents live in Portland so they stayed there and Rick drove here on Sunday to visit us and to see where we live. Yesterday we all met (Dan and Cori came too) at OMSI (Oregon museum of science and industry) in Portland. We had a very nice visit and are looking foward to 2008.
