Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas from Aconcagua Camp 1 at 16,200 feet! Team 2 is taking a rest day after a strong climb up to Camp 2 yesterday. We are in a festive spirit as we enjoy our own version of egg nog…it’s water but if you close you eyes hard enough you can taste the resemblance!

Everyone is doing really, really well and we are looking forward to moving up to 18,000 feet!

Josh - hope you had a wonderful Christmas!  Santa didn’t visit our house…  He said he was waiting for your return.  No babies yet, but should be one soon.  Best of luck tomorrow as you climb to Camp 2.  We are loving the pictures and blog each day.  We are so very proud of you.  Can’t wait to see you at the top.  Sending lots of love, strength, determination, warmth, energy, and warm hugs your way.

We miss you!!!  Love -Jess

I am still in amazement!  We are looking forward to pictures (have somebody take some of you!)  Lora, Michael and Sophia are coming tomorrow and we will miss you!  You are missing day after Christmas sales, but at least your New Year’s Eve will be avoiding drunk drivers!  Miss you!  Love, momma
