We had a party to celebrate a some momentous events!
Jim's 60th birthday, our first year in Bend, and meeting some Twitter friends.
We had a really good time and so glad these folks braved the snow and treacherous roads on our snowy butte to come.
Here are some pix of the evening...

A wonderful evening was had by all (we hope!)
Looking forward to many more years here. Next party when there is no snow and you can see the fantastic mountain views we have.
Thank you everyone!
