This weekend was all about the holidays for us. We hiked back into the woods on our property and not only killed one tree, we killed four! The trees are so tiny here that we cut down four little ones and strapped them together to make one slightly less scrawny tree. We have quite a collection of ornaments now because of our families. My mum sent us some really cool ones last year and Sam's mama gave us a whole bunch of really old, cool ornaments when we were there in October. The puppy tried to help with the decorating but fell asleep after stealing the tinsel and stockings. I'm heading to the Denali Highway for training tomorrow morning and will be gone for a couple days. The dogs did a 20-mile run on Friday and handled it really well so I'll try to do back-to-back 30s on the highway, which is closed in the winter and has an abundance of snow. It's been snowing here so I think I'll be a sled for good now. Fingers crossed.
This weekend we also made our holiday photo card. We put all the dogs in the pen and strapped the camera to the top of the pen. The results were pretty funny. If you want a Christmas card and haven't received one from us in the past, please email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org. They're really funny.
Here are some photos of holiday fun around the cabin.
