A few last pictures from our time at my parents' house in Jackson Hole, Wyoming over Christmas:
More elk! This time we saw a group of females and a few juveniles in our backyard in the middle of the afternoon
Close-up of the elk as they saw us and began to retreat (notice the juvenile with his small antlers in the middle)
We climbed the hill and realized they were part of a huge herd of elk (I really need new lenses for my camera that can accommodate wide angles and close-ups better, seeing as how I come across opportunities for shots like these so often in my regular life - ha!)
I hope you can get an idea of how many elk there were!
Robert and I had fun pulling Vivian around our track on the sled (notice that Baby Sarah came along for the ride)
Amid cries of "Slow down! Too fast!" I think Vivian enjoyed riding on the sled

My mom's sister also has a home in Jackson Hole. She and some of her family came for dinner one night (left to right: my sister-in-law Megan, me, my Aunt Judy, my mom, my cousin Nancy)
Will, Robert and my Uncle Frank catch a little football
Dinner (Wine bottles are among the elite few containers that are acceptable on the dinner table. My dad's contraption that keeps his cans cold is also exempt)
Nancy's son Spencer and Dots joined us for our dessert of peppermint ice cream pie . Lucky for Dots the Container Police didn't see that Coke can...
My mom and my niece and nephews partook in a spirited game of Bottle Tops
I had fun helping my nephew Matt with the new Harry Potter game he got for his DS
I love my cute little niece! (She is also my goddaughter.)
As you can tell, we had a wonderful Christmas in Wyoming with my parents and my brother and his family. My sister and her family arrived from Georgia the afternoon before we came home, but sadly I neglected to get any pictures with them.
Seventeen and Spring Break!
