|Wishing you Joy and Peace This Christmas Season
and a Happy Healthy New Year 2012
Last Christmas we went to Santa Fe to enjoy the holidays there. It is a fun place to be with lots of
Christmas spirit. The Christmas Eve walk on Canyon Road is very colorful and festive with lights, farolitos,
luminairies, carolers, hot chocolate and crowds. We enjoyed our first winter experience out there, the
weather was mild, we visited with neighbors, enjoyed our new quarters and continued to furnish and
decorate the condo. This year we are enjoying Christmas in New Hampshire.

Returned home in January for our winter respite - winter in the woods, reading, in our workshops, doing
our volunteer jobs and being with friends. Then to the sugar house to produce maple syrup. It was
the most productive year to date.

In April we drove to Santa Fe to oversee a new patio, do
more decorating and finish furnishing the condo.
On our return to New Hampshire in May we stopped in St. Louis for a visit
with Rob, Kate and Carly. Rob is in his last year of graduate school
getting a masters degree in Education and busy subbing at schools in
Webster Groves. Kate works at Washington University. Carly loves to
go to the zoo and visit the animals.
