so, visiting with the Eleys, the MacLeishes, the Westlunds-Harringtons, the First Plymouth Church, the Optimists, and Denver at large was great. We really had a wonderful holiday out west, and were SO happy that Uncle Brian got to meet Orion for the FIRST TIME. In addition, we brought a crazy stomach flu which literally infected 17 out of 20 people that we saw on Christmas Day. Some kind of hyper-communicable 24 hour gastrointestinal yuckiness.
But - the love and friends and family and food (and board games) more than made up for the time that each of us spent laying low. Many thanks to Laura, Craig and others for these photos!!
