For the first time, in seven years, our little family is on our own for Christmas. And so we have been reminiscing our Christmas's past. They all have been equally full of holiday magic. Here are just few of our favorite highlights.
Sitting by the fire because it's cold outside.
Gandmama and Papa Piller with Pearce.
Driving to the Cabin in Colorado. Todd shoe skiing along the way.
Dining and walking around Telluride at night with snow gently falling, while snuggled next to my honey.

Skiing with our kids. Connor wore his goggles on and off the slopes.
Skiing and snowboarding with no lines.
I was so cold I taped hot patches all over my body. Believe me it helped.

Finding snow in Hawaii. On the Big Island of Hawaii's highest summit Mauna Kea, which means White Mountain, sits 13, 796 feet above the ocean. The Astronomical community has recognized this spot as possibly the best place in the world to observe and star gaze. And this is why two dozen of the finest telescopes in the world call Mauna Kea home. These high powered telescopes can look at objects over 12 billion light years away, allowing scientists to look through comic clouds and watch stars being born. Now that's cool.
Playing in the first snow fall. Cottonwood Canyon Utah.
Looking out the window and seeing a beautiful blanket of snow.
Honest, this is a real picture I took.
