Snowy Elk

On our recent trip up to Estes, we saw a herd of elk right outside the park. It was snowing pretty good, but I snapped this picture (thanks Dad for bringing your camera!)

Merry Christmas Eve!

I wish everyone a great Christmas. These are just a few of the elk we saw on our last recent trip up to Estes Park. It certainly will be a nice white Christmas here! Yeah for snow and the beauty of it all.

Christmas Concert

Last weekend a few of my girlfriends and I went to see a Christmas concert! I love Christmas music! It was a fun night -- we went out to dinner and then enjoyed a little Christmas cheer!

Merry Christmas!

Well I can't believe how fast Christmas is coming. Although Rob and I have not yet finished our Christmas shopping for each other, we have finished shopping for Eve :) We bought her some toys and put them in her stocking. Without even us pointing it out, Eve found her stocking and loves to patiently stay staring at her stocking....

It's like that dog from the movie UP......"Point!"

"Is anyone going to help me get this stocking down, or do I have to do it myself?" asks Eve

For a while, it was REALLY, REALLY cold. I woke up one morning and it was -13 degrees! It made us bundle up everywhere we went. We even bundled Eve up! I'm not sure she loved the hat though, but it was cute!

Guide Dogs Christmas Party

Tis the season to dress up your dog (or kid) in all sorts of funny attire!

This weekend we went to the Guide Dog Christmas Party. The hostess, my good friend Stacie, had a bunch of funny outfits for the dogs to try on. Eve was very good as we continued to try on different costumes!

"Look, I'm an elf!"

Lucky Day

Today was my lucky day.... I had signed up for a mailing list for the restaurant Famous Dave's BBQ. As a reward for signing up they gave me a coupon in my email, saying that it would be valid for either a free desert or a feast, or something in between, depending on the prize code in the eamil. I figured it was a desert, so I wasn't that excited. But it expired tomorrow, so I called them up and asked what the prize code meant.... and they said:

"You've won the All American Feast!!!"

I was shocked. It was worth $64 and is food for about 5-6 people! And all for free!!

So, since Rob and I are only 2 people, we invited our friends over to share the winnings! Yeah for free food!

Wow, lots of food! And we still have leftovers!
