Christmas at Radar Hill

For Jocularity Day, as named by Roger, we received some fabulous shirts matching our personalities. Check out the photos on Facebook and Google+. We played a fun game in which we had to fight over the last present using dice and oven mitts. View the video on YouTube. A big Thank You to Holmes Realty for the amazing Christmas Pizza. On Christmas Eve we held our staff Christmas party. Thanks to Jennifer for organizing this awesome catered lunch in our office! There was great food, lots of laughter and great conversation. We all ate too much (but it was worth it) and enjoyed the fine company of each other. It was a great way to start of the Christmas break and we look forward to making some new annual traditions.

Jennifer’s New Cat

Jennifer's cats

After Jennifer’s cat Weezer’s sudden passing in the fall, Jennifer’s other cat Foo had become very lonely. Foo couldn’t be left alone as he needs company so Jennifer and her fiancé Dave set out to find a new friend for Foo. After a lot of time searching and careful consideration they found Buttercup at the SPCA and it couldn’t have been a better match! They have been getting along great and Buttercup has really helped Foo with friendship and comfort from the loss of Weezer. Just after one week of knowing each other they were already snugging up. In the photo Foo is the grey cat and Buttercup is the tuxedo.
