Day 294

Tracy picked up a friend for Sven, Olaf, at an after Christmas sale. Matt whipped up some pancakes for the crew. Lynn and Jamie ran down to The Button, the Needle, and the Wardrobe to pick up a patch that Heidi produced for folks in It's a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play. On the way back they stopped for lunch at P.F. Chang's wonderfully heated outdoor eating area (smoked old fashioned). Sam got to request our New Year's Eve menu, so we had chicken piccata, wine lover's rice, and asparagus with a very good mustard drizzle that Lynn made. Matt found some books in his office for Jamie to peruse as part of his Torah study and for planning a trip to Israel (in the dreaming-about stage). After dinner the adults enjoyed some different shows that were on Fox in the 5-8pm time frame. At 9pm, the AdAmAn club shot off the first round of fireworks for the night from the top of Pikes Peak which we were able to see and then did it again at midnight which is the normal time (Lynn got up to see the midnight round). A group known as the Frozen Five started the tradition in December 1922 by hiking up the cog railroad route and picking up abandoned railroad flares along the way to add to their arsenal. Read the History section of their website (link above). There are a couple good videos on their Home page, too.

Reminded me of Lot's wife...
