Quartzsite

 

Big quartz in Quartzsite
We would have mailed this rock out, as it is really cool. It did not fit in the USPS flat rate box, and it belonged to the neighbor.
Cookies
We had a small party, invited some random people here in the wash. Athena made sure a sugar high would be imminent.
Truffle warning
Athena makes killer truffles, you try them you are hooked for life.
New Levis
Athena Buys Darin Levis so he can look nice at the party. Makes him change from his holy jeans. Christmas is a Holy day right?

 

Phoenix

Not too many things draw us back into suburbia, but for a few hours on Christmas day we joined family and friends in dinner and around the tree for a fine Christmas day.

Palmagranate
We have pomegranate guts. She loves them. We thought they were good, but they should be grown seedless.
Everyone gathers around the tree

Victoria secret
Holly gets Victoria secret from brother-in-law. Mike got her a card as he did not want to shop the women’s section. I can’t see why. It’s illegal to think anything of a man shopping for women’s underwear, after all the man may want them for himself. It is illegal for that to make you uncomfortable.
