Christmas, 2005

left to right: Betty, AV, Gary, Kendal, Pauline, Rita, Marcus, Samantha, Daniel, Kristina, Paul, Al, Andy and Brett.

For the Christmas holiday, all of Gary and Pauline's children were able to come as well as some of Kristina's (Dan's fiance) family (names in blue). All but Kendal stayed in other accommodations. We were able to fit everyone into the Carriage House for several meals, including the Christmas dinner pictured above. Unfortunately, the ski conditions were not very good until the day everyone but Dan, Kristina and Kendal had left. Of course, we all felt sorry for those who had left as we cut new tracks through the fresh snow.

Note the sofa hide-a-bed in the foreground and the Tiffany lamp at the left arm; these are some of the things originally intended for the Main House. Pauline is especially proud of the quilt (upper right) that was to hang in the new library.
