Christmas Eve dawned with one of the most beautiful sunrises of the year, and one of the first times we had seen the sun in quite a while. I rushed out to take pictures, Derek slept through it. Derek and I spent the morning playing in the mud, which we’ll be posting the video of shortly. Then Derek, Mom, Dad and I went to the Lost Coast Ranch where it was very soggy so I didn’t manage to take them all the way out to my favorite scenic spot. Lori stayed home and prepared a wonderful ham dinner, and after we all scarfed out on that we went to see The Majestic. Ok it wasn’t the great movie that we were hoping for, and Jim Carrey’s dramatic acting wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, but it was fun spotting our friends and the local scenery throughout the movie.
