I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow

Admittedly, I expected air travel on Christmas Day to be a little more festive. Santa hats, anyone? A happy holiday chuckle? Nothing. Out of pity, I nearly gave the security guy my carry-on cookie stash. Nearly.

No worries. The real treat was arriving in Colorado to see my sister (and the new baby!) and enjoy the family—and all that snow. :)
