We’re feeling so thankful for all of the experiences 2015 brought our way. We’re grateful for the chance to be healthy and loved, and to have so many to love on, too.
The nugget is doin’ just fine.

A great turnout. Lots of kids, a puppy and a busy grandma. Hayden and Hollister with Hudson and Aunt Robyn.
2015 was magical. We began the year in Colorado, camping and climbing with some of nicest people we know. We celebrated the end to a beautiful year with each other, a new puppy, great friends and family in Idaho.

Thanksgiving at the Paul’s
Our annual Christmas ornament. After some half-hearted selections, Robyn came across this little Chossy lookalike!
Michele and JP decorating their first Christmas tree in their new home!
Choss could barely see out of the trench but seemed to enjoy the run anyhow!
For Thanksgiving, we rallied to Rupert — food and family were of top priority. A few days of beers and food comas quickly had us out skiing in the mountains of central Idaho. Winter is in full swing now and the backcountry conditions are hard to beat. We’ve had several days out there and our stoke is at an all time high.

I’m not one to sip the spirits but this was tasty!
Have a shot, now stick your feet in this wax mold. There is now a plaster replica of my feet living in a storage container between Ketchum and Hailey… Just in case I want some custom footbeds for my ski boots.
So it snowed a lot in December. There is a F250 under there.
Christmas was spent exploring and adventuring in the Wood River Valley with the Davis crew. Birthday dinners, new beer samples and board games all made an appearance. Best turns of the season also came with a birthday ski only a mile from home!
Robyn joined me for a work field day on Mt Etna east of Hailey.
Planning summer adventures in the Boulder and White Cloud Mountains.
Zack, Zaxon and Nate.
One of Ethan’s goals for the season is to get comfortable on a snowmachine. This was his first day out in the Sawtooth Mountains!
Happy grandpa with grand-dog.
Robyn’s 31st revolution around the sun began with a couple of laps off Carbonate right above town!
Chillin’ by the fire; maybe 1/3 of Chossy’s time is spent here.
It’s magical and absolutely wonderful to be home again. You, our friends and family, make life such a joy. We are excited to see what 2016 brings and to share it with all of you. Thank you for your continued support and love, and Happy New Year!
