Wildland Experience

The Wildland Experience is just down the road from our house. I had heard the lights were amazing and so we decided to check it out. It was a cold evening, but it's not Christmas if it's not cold, right?!? Anyhow, we paid the fee and were disappointed to find out you could see all the lights from the road (for free). We will make sure to just drive by a couple times next year! ;-) But the lights were still pretty to look at!

Christmas Fun!

One of the clubs at Ron's school was putting on a Christmas craft day last weekend. I begged him to go w/me & my cuteness won him over! We both ended up having a really great time. We ran into several people we knew and had an overall pleasant morning. Anyhow, here are some pics of the yummy goodies we made!
Pine Cone Christmas Tree
Terracotta Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer!
One of a kind snowflake (meteorologists are good at creating those)!
Star of David & Frosty the Snowman!
Wreath Christmas card holder (already put to good use)

Christmas Party

One of the women I work with, Nancy, decided to throw a Christmas party last week. She invited several of the women from work! We had lots of yummy food and a gift exchange. Always a good time. It was nice to get to know these women outside the work environment. I would proudly call them my friends. The tall lady with the bright red hair, Danielle, recently left for an internship in Oregon. We have worked together since July and I am really going to miss her (but wish her the best of luck).

Navy Commissioning

Well, this post is about a month late. Ron went down to Denver on November 7 and was commissioned into the United States Navy as an Ensign. It was both an exciting and somewhat frightening day. We are so happy that Ron has decided to serve his country as a doctor and even happier that they will be paying for his schooling! On the other hand, this is a HUGE commitment and he will be required to serve for four years.

Here is a picture of us, after Ron is sworn in. My camera battery was completely dead when I pulled it out of my purse for pictures that day. Thankfully, they have a camera on hand for such events (hence, the reason for the late posting). I have also included a picture of the beautiful plaque they awarded Ron.
