They came in on Friday night, and introduced us to their new puppy, a spotted dachsund named S'mores. She was adorable and loved giving kisses.

Surprised? Yeah. We were all surprised that none of us had ever played it, too. But it was fun.
After playing games, Laura and I went to ConAgra Ice Skating Rink, a temporary rink down by the Old Market at 10th and Harney, where all the proceeds (I believe) go to the Omaha Food Bank. For just $5, we got in and got skates, and we skated around the busy rink for about an hour and a half (It was cold and crowded!).

It was a beautiful evening, though cold, and I've never ice skated outside before, which made it seem almost magical, and definitely Christmasy.

Afterward, Laura, Kiri, and I went home and had soup, before we watched the finale of The Amazing Race with my parents. I'd never seen it before this season, and only watched it because I'm a fan of Bethany Hamilton. While we were a little sad that Bethany and her husband, Adam didn't win, but it was an exciting season, nonetheless.
I'm sorry that I didn't get to spend more time with Laura. We've always been, ever since she was about eight months old. She's like a little sister that I never got (Her brother is also like my little brother.), and I can't imagine my life without her.
Save travels, Love! I'm glad we got to spend part of Christmas together!
