Christmas in McMurdo--Christmas Day

Christmas morning brought lots of presents and laughs and fun and general coziness.

I gave my girlfriends jumpropes, which we immediately tried out in the hall.

[Elizabeth and Kim.]

[Jay and Elizabeth get a good chuckle out of Nate and Quinn’s Christmas card.]

[Lisa shows off my new muppet collection]

[Lisa and Nate play with my toys]

[I gave Elizabeth a hamster. Here, she introduces it to Rhonda.]

[Tad models Kermit.]

[Julie offers moral support while Elizabeth signs a card. Elizabeth is modeling a pair of socks I gave her.]

After a good amount of lounging in our room, we headed to Hut 10 for Day 2 of Michael Davis’ birthday party.

[Mark, Julie, Elizabeth, Burmie, Matt]

Christmas is a time of love.

[Nate and Red]

And of the Heat Meiser.

And, Christmas is a time for feasting. We say hi to our friends working in the galley

[Nate, Debbie, ??]

before settling in to stuff ourselves on salmon and fresh veggies and gourmet cheeses and such.

[family dinner]

And then, back to our room for more love

[Elizabeth and Rich]

[Elizabeth and Julie]

[Jenna and Red]

[Julie and Red]

[Nate and Tad]

and funny faces.

[Nate, Johnathan, Michelle]

And then, after a long day of excitement and friends, it was time to wind down. With an Animal in my lap. Thanks to my mother. Thanks, Mom. Thanks, Dad, too.


Merry Christmas.
