Christmas in BV

We are going to Buena Vista this year for Christmas with Gretchen, Mike, Makena and Beckett. Cooper and Jill be joining the festivities Christmas Eve. This will be the first Christmas we will be with the whole gang! :) I got all the Christmas decorations down from the attic but am not feeling like doing the work. So, I don't think I will be putting up the Christmas tree, another first.

Halloween 2009

Here are a few pics from Halloween this year in Buena Vista. Makena was a clown and wore the costume by mom, her Great Granma Grace made for Makena's mom when Gretchen was a little girl! Her hair was sprayed red and let me tell you, not easy to wash out! Beckett was a dinosaur and his mohawk was sprayed red with green on the sides to match his costume! We had a great time and ate WAY too much candy...still, lots of fun!

I am sitting here enjoying a cup of coffee as it snows this morning. I love snow, primarly Colorado snow. Yes, you can sweep it with a broom. I did not like snow the winter of 2007 when my mom and I got caught in a blizzard with white out conditions in the mountains. That was not fun! But for today, I am inside and warm so I like snow!

Long time, no blog.

Sooooo...guess I will try and start blogging again. I don't know if anyone will read this but I will give it a go! This weekend has been beautiful, 70's sunny. I actually went to a movie last night with two co-workers and had a great time. We went to Julie and Julia, about Julia Child and a woman named Julie who worked her way through Julia Child's cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in one year 500 some odd recipes!!! WOW!! Not me..we had BBQ brats and mac and cheese for dinner tonight!! :) Would love to receive a comment if anyone ever reads this!

Unca Tupa AKA Uncle Cooper

Gretchen, Makena and Beckett came to Denver so Uncle Cooper came down from Ft. Collins to visit. Makena calls him Unca Tupa...it is so cute! :) She is taking so much and Beckett can even say Unca too. We had a great day just hanging out and playing. I have put up some pictures.

Spring Break

We also went to Ft. Collins to see Cooper and Jill but I did not get any new pictures, maybe next time.

Don't Bank on the Money til the Money is in the Bank...

So our Honda got stolen Saturday night. It was our anniversary and we had a wonderful evening only to wake up and notice the Honda was not in its usual parking spot. Was I dreaming or what! But Dale came out to the parking lot and said..."Yep, it's gone." So phone calls were made to the police who were not too encouraging about recovering it. Little did we know that Hondas are easy to break into and one of the most stolen cars. Of course we did not have comprehensive insurance as it was 12 years old so we are counting it as about a $3,000 loss...thus the title of this blog according to Dale. We had "plans" for that money but not anymore!

Happy Anniversary to us!

Today is our 28th wedding anniversary...where does the time go? If I had any old pictures I would post them but no such luck! We have had a relaxing and enjoyable day. Another 28 years and we will be 81 and 80...hard to believe!

Another New Do...Too Cute!

Here is the latest hairdo with a before and after photos. A young girl from Ethopia braids hair as her business so that is where we take Makena. It is a long and at times painful (for Makena as it hurts and for us to see her cry) process but SO worth it. She likes to shake her head and hear the beads make noise. It is the simple things in life!

Spring is in the Air

So I have not blogged in over a month. What a slacker. The most exciting events were that Makena turned 2 Feb. 10 and Beckett turned 1 on Feb 28! I have put pictures in the slideshow link. It was a great time and hard to believe that I was in Korea this time last year. Both kids are growing so fast. Makena is talking so much more and Beckett is walking everywhere. I can't wait to go to the park and play outside with them this spring.

Bills and Taxes

So our great weekend of playing with family and friends has come and gone. Now it is time so get busy on paperwork. I will not have any pictures to post as we all know what it looks like. I think the most startling fact is that we got the hospital bill for Dale's surgery. He was in for less than 24 hours and the total was $29,000.00 YES $29,000.00. YIKES STRIPES! Do we need health care reform in this country? Plus I get to do state income tax forms from 3 states as I was still working out of Utah for the hotel, Dale was in Minnesota for his temporary assignment and of course, Colorado. Makes me tired to think about...so I think I will go walk the dogs and get some exercise!
