Ski Trip

Brent and I spent a 3 day weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The skiing was really nice and the temps were in the 30s. We stayed at a neat little place called The Lodge. There isn't anywhere to stay on the mountain so we stayed in town and drove up to the ski resort each morning.

The views were amazing!

This is the Chipmunk Center for kids.

We practically had the place to ourselves!

Happy Birthday!

Brent turns 32 today!

We did some early celebrating this weekend when we had family with us for the weekend. Brent requested a cookie cake and Lillian made him a birthday hat. He wore it proudly!

With another winter storm staring us in the face, I am reminded of other years when Brent's birthday meant some sort of fierce winter weather. Last year, we had planned to eat at a restuarant called Boneyard Grill (delicious ribs!) but an ice storm came through and all the eating places in town were closed but one lonely burger joint who had only 1 waiter and a hostess. That was a long evening! Our senior year of college brought the first weather related closing of OC's school history when a massive snow storm hit on Jan 27.

The cold weather stories say nothing about Brent's personality and heart. He is the kindest and least selfish person I know and I am proud to be his wife. Happy Birthday!

Young Christmas '09

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures from New Year's weekend spent in Greenwood, MO. We celebrated Christmas with Brent's family and enjoyed a night on the town on New Year's Eve. It was crazy but great to have the family time!

No need to throw away the pool when summer ends- save it for winter and it makes a handy sled!

Snow Play

This is how we spent Christmas Day- sledding, 4 wheeling, and snowball fights.

Grammy and Lillian throw snow.

Uncle Jesse gets in on the action. Seriously?! No shoes or coat?!?!

We made a quick trip to Apache to see Grandma Charlotte and PaPa.
