One of the tough aspects of being overseas is that we are often away from friends and family at Christmas time. This year was better because Dana's mother was out visiting from Avonlea and Uncle Trent came to visit from Vancouver.
To share our Christmas, and Kirsi's first 'real' Christmas where she could open gifts, we created a video and posted it online. You can download the video by clicking the Video link below...it is a big file though (19.67 MB) and the video itself is rather small.
One of our pre-Christmas activities was a visit to the Veramonte vineyard west of Santiago in the Casablanca valley.

You can see more of our pictures of the vineyard and our other travels at our flickr site or at our ballofdirt site.
