Worked a bit on http://www.sheppybrew.com . I added an email (contact us) form and did some work to prevent spamming in page comments. I kept an eye on Santa's progress on twitter (@noradsanta, @OfficialSanta, @XmasElf, @OfficialRudolph) and the NORAD tracking site http://www.noradsanta.org.
At 5:30 or so I went to the health club to work out and listen to brewing podcasts. I also kept an eye on Santa's progress on twitter and my mobile google map.
Back home at around 7:45. My wife made breakfast. I showed the kids how Santa was doing on the NORAD site.
Then, we went driving around taking random turns based on input from the people in the car. We ended up in Evergreen and hiked a little bit. Actually, it was more climbing up rock formations by the boys than hiking.

Then, we made our way home. Rested awhile and then got ready for church.
After church, we came home, ordered a pizza and watched a couple of Christmas movies.
The next day, the boys were up early for some reason. Here are some Christmas pictures:
|Santa was generous this year.|
|Tyler's new telescope.|
|Connor's gift to Mom|
|Connor's claw was a big hit.|
|It was a Harry Potter Christmas for Tyler.|
|a couple more gifts.|

|Connor got cooking stuff.|

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
