A Very Merry Christmas, and Strep for everyone!

Yes, you read the title correctly, strep for Christmas.  Me, Husband, now possibly Grandson and Youngest.

Where did this awful chain mail present come from?  FIANCE!

That's right, Youngest's fiance brought it home for all to share.  I'm glad he loves us so...

On a merrier note, I am wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!  Hope your day is good, and your families bring you joy!

Merry Christmas, and remember, it's just a ride.

Boy, have I been busy...

Christmas shopping and hitting deer and all.

And I am serious about hitting deer.

I've never hit a deer before, but yesterday, my wish was fulfilled, and one ran right out in front of me while I was driving home.  Scared the crap out of the deer, by the way...oh, and now I think I might have a permanent bladder problem! 

Luckily I was only going about 30 mph, and the deer ran away.  My car just has one small dent, and a scrape where the antlers went across my hood, and I might have post-traumatic stress disorder now.

On an uplifting note, my Christmas shopping is done, most of the baking is done, and I am ready for the BIG DAY!  Yay!

And we've been busy celebrating Oldest's birthday, which is unfortunately very close to Christmas.  Hope I made it worthwhile with an "I Love Bacon" cookbook!

And now, I'm off to work, which luckily, this week, is only 3 days long!

Remember, it's just a ride.

It's cross country skiing season!

Finally!  Enough snow on Grand Mesa to go cross country skiing!  So we took the dogs and set out on Sunday for 6 miles of snow and trees:

Hi y'all!

These guys enjoy the cold more than I do!

All in all it was an enjoyable 6 mile loop we did, though I was pretty tired by the time we got back to the car!

Hope everyone else is enjoying the winter weather in their favorite way!

Remember, it's just a ride.
