I had a lovely Christmas break and I hope you did too. I did manage to read a couple of the books I wanted to read but I was busy getting in twenty hours of physical exercise for school. Which I had no problem doing seeing as how we went to La Pine, Oregon with an ATV and than to Parkdale for a refreshing four days. On the way back from Parkdale, we hit a part blizzard, part nightmare and Dad had to put the chains on and off, four separate times.

We finally got to Parkdale though, completing the trip in 7 hours instead of 2 and a half hours.
We went ice skating on a pond/lake 10 minutes from our cottage. It was superb up there but unfortunately I got no pictures. I did take pictures of our meager ice on our creek though!
