Christmas in New Mexico

So I spent the past few days in New Mexico with my family. That's where my brother and his family live. We went on the train ride from Durango up about two hours and then back. It was a great day and I thought I would attach a few pictures.

It was great to see my family. We had a gift-opening session, but without the pressure of dinner, and timing and not many days together - which seems to be the best way to do it. If my parents lived nearby me, I think that would be amazing. I would love to be able to see them frequently. They are terrific people.

I hope you are all well. I am okay. Not great, but it IS January - my least favorite time of year, and we DO have a TON of ice, and I haven't worked in two weeks, and if I don't work I don't get paid, so all things considered, I am just fine.


  1. The pictures are great. I don't really know you, but thanks to Karen I feel like I'm learning fast, haha! Something tells me that you two were..well, I'm at a loss for words :)

  2. Hey that train ride looks awesome! Like the blue coat! Hang in there friend.

  3. Gorgeous pics. It actually snowed at my house (in Southern Cali) yesterday. It didn't come close to sticking, but the kids were so excited.

  4. Beautiful pictures. Makes me miss snow for a couple of minutes. :)

    I'm glad you had a great time with your family. I can't even tell you how great it is to be able to live near our families. Maybe sometime it will work out for you guys.

  5. Is that the narrow gauge train from Silverton to Durango? I've been on that!
