December 2017

In December...

Christmas Lights

At the beginning of December we decked the house out with Christmas lights. Jon's IoT setup made it pretty easy to control all of the lights. For the first time this year, we lit a tree in our backyard. We got the live tree for Christmas several years ago, planted it as a baby, and now it is a big pine tree - so we thought it appropriate to give it some holiday lights.

Holiday Lunch

Jon's Autodesk team (and former Applied Research Team) had a holiday lunch at the Vitale Hotel. This was the same gang that had dinner in Las Vegas, but this time, we had the honor of Kerry Ann with us in person.

Turkey Vulture

While hiking Mt. Burdell, we came across a signpost with a big turkey vulture spreading his wings.
