Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all our friends and family! We spent Christmas with my family in Deer Lodge this year. It was a nice quiet, relaxing visit!

Watching "Journey to the Center of the Earth" in 3-D!

I enjoyed some time with my doggie, Max, too. We had fun in the snow!


Fun in the snow!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

No matter where we went for Christmas this year, there was plenty of snow to go around. In Montana, where we enjoyed Christmas with my family, there was only a few inches of snow, but the temperatures would dip into the negative double digits at night.

This is our backyard in Deer Lodge.

Mount Powell

This is the scenery we arrived to in Logan. There is probably over 2 feet of snow here. It is beautiful, but boy is it a mess.

Christmas Memories

I thought this would be a fun Christmas memory to share with all my family and friends! December 17, 2002 was one of the best days of my life! I was returning to Montana from my first semester at the University of Oklahoma, in Norman. My boyfriend at the time, Ron, met me at the airport with half a dozen roses beaming from ear to ear! We get to his house, and I run upstairs to drop off my luggage before going downstairs for dinner. When I turn on the light, I see my kiss-kiss bears holding up a heart stating "marry me" (see picture)! I turn around, and there is Ron holding out my heart-shaped ruby engagement ring! Of course you know the ending...I said "YES" and we are living happily ever after!

Christmas goodies!

It is that time of year again folks! I love Christmas so much that my Christmas tree has been up since the weekend before Thanksgiving! This weekend I was feeling Christmasy (the first good snowfall helped...pictures to come) and I made fudge, sugar cookies, and a friend of mine and I made ginger cookie type ornaments! Lots of fun! Even Ron came into the kitchen and helped frost cookies! Enjoy the pics! And Happy Holidays!
