Dec 26

Christmas is a time for memories and tradition. For instance, gathering around the um.. yule-evision for a viewing of that Christmas classic Elbo The Elf *, roasting chestnuts on a open (propane) fire, or having that Christmas cookie dough fight. Perhaps you have your own traditions.

One of the things that we try to do each year that we aren't with family is to repurpose the fishcam for a couple of days as the Christmas webcam.

Avid visitors from previous xmas webcams will notice a key difference this year. No big tree. That is due to the new kitten in the house. Instead, we have a couple of smaller, more put-out-of-Walter's-reach trees. Oh, and that ever so creepy snowman head. (What's up with that snowman head? I mean, I can totally see how Santa's workshop would be unionized, but is there some sort of jolly mafia up there in the north pole? Was there a hit put on this snowman? Is this a warning to his family? Yikes!)

Merry Christmas, everybody.

Update: Happy Boxing Day! (or is it "Merry"?) We had a happy and fun Christmas day. We missed you if you weren't here, and if you were, then thanks for coming out. The camera is down until next year (at least). We wish you all a super happy new year.

* What? You don't know and cherish Elbo the Elf? Well no longer will you have ignorance to blind you to this touching and memorable story. Come back in a day (or two - it is the holidays after all) for the wonderful story of Elbo. Our *gift* to you!
