Two great perks of working at Woodstock are the free flight home after 18 months and a ridiculously long winter break. This year, both coincided and I got to enjoy a month at home as well as a week of traveling. Some highlights:
- Enjoying the insane amount of snow with snowshoeing and cross country skiing around our property.
Snowshoeing siblings on Christmas Eve.
Skiing on a blustery day with mom.
-Christmas celebrations. First, Christmas eve at home with the traditional pasties and jello mold. Next, Christmas day in Rochester and Zumbrota with the Onkka relatives. Finally, Hotel Christmas with the Hegerles in Fargo.
Church with Grandpa.
Erik and Carson
All the nieces and a nephew!
Grace and Edie with animals galore.
-A Woodstock reunion in Minneapolis. Three of us who are still currently at Woodstock met up with others who are now living in Minnesota and Iowa.
Gossiping in the Mall of America :)
Delicious dinner at the Endo's.
The Endo's (my former Woodstock neighbors) make great hosts!
-A long overdue trip to Wilderness Canoe Base. We snowshoed, jumped in the frozen lake, and burned an old cabin down! It was wonderful to be back.
