We have been busy little elves making dough ornaments for our tree. The ones against the fence are Meg's handy work and the ones with the blue background are Crystal's masterpieces. We all worked on decorating the tree, including the crocheted garland and paper towel cactus angel. All made with love. We are sending out many warm thoughts and wishes to all of our friends and family for the holidays!!!

Billie has survived her first day of work after 3 hours of sleep (Indian Food party and a snow storm make for a late night)! Counter Culture is a funky little cafe not far from here. The rest of us are still on the hunt.

In other survival news - Crystal survived her first plane flight - alone - to enjoy Nik's wedding. Everything was beautiful!

We're planning to celebrate our 1 month Santa Fe anniversary on Friday - going out dancing. Hard to believe we'll be planning Christmas dinner soon! Happy Holidays!

working hard?

We have spent much of this last week looking for jobs, picking up applications, and filling out applications. It has been rewarding to get crackin' on this part of our lives out here, but stressful as well. Crystal will be gone to PA to be a bridesmaid in Nikole's wedding - hopefully there will be a job at a cafe or the co-op upon return! Thankfully we've had some downtime to make some orniments to decorate our Christmas tree! We also took a break last night to check out our friend's band with a light show - a very good time!
