Playing catch-up, Part 3 - Christmas 2011

For our winter break, Uncle Nick and Aunty Michaela came to visit all the way from Aspen... where we were told is covered with snow.

Owen's first time on ice skates.
We took them ice skating... or rather... Uncle Nick and Aunty Michaela helped us learned the ropes since it was our first time on the ice.
