Southwest Christmas, Part I

Well we have been here for about a day now and I’m having a wonderful time playing with my adorable, frighteningly smart nephew and eating as much New Mexican food and homemade candy as I can stand. It’s a little colder than expected, so I’m glad I brought lots of layers. Dressing for New Mexico weather is always a little tricky because it’s often warm during the day, but very cold at night. This year, I rebelled and didn’t bring my cowboy boots, which has made dressing New Mexico-appropriate challenging. One must always wear boots, because a.) snakes and scorpions live here and b.) snakes and scorpions live here. Also, at this very moment, I am the only person in the entire state of New Mexico who is not wearing denim. I’m, like, so hardcore.
