Joel has come to love Barry's favorite Christmas treat...the Orange Chocolate Orange. So when Barry pulled the Orange Chocolate Orange out of the stocking, Joel said "Daddy, I'll share with you"... Kids...aren't they great lol

We spent the day putting together Transformers, cooking and taking a few naps. We had a Merry Christmas. We are looking forward to exciting things in 2009! Wishing you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!!
God Bless & Love,

Sunday - Just a few pics before Church

Joel was so cute so I snapped a few quick pics before church.

Christmas Program - Christmas Around the world

Joel's first Christmas Program was last week. He held the stage down in his area...he didn't sing and barely moved. His class was from Hawaii and sang a Hawaiian Christmas song.

Who was the guy from Star Trek that also did Rainbow Reader on Joel trying to be him??

For always ask for one of is one that his half decent! Go Barry!

Getting our Christmas Tree

This year Joel's class took a field trip to Curry Christmas Tree Farms in Start. Barry went with his class and was impressed with their operation. We decided to get a tree from them this year. It was so fun to pick our tree, play and have some warm cider. This was right after we were at Biedenharn, hense the dress clothes for Joel.

Joel by the pond...there are normally ducks, but it was chilly, so I guess they were all hanging out somewhere else.

Us with our tree just before we tagged it....Dad took the pic...finger in the flash style.. lol

A few pics of the most beautiful sunset I have seen in a long time

And who can resist the barrel train!!

Isn't that the most amazing color ever!

The decorated tree!

Christmas @ Biedenharn

Two of the cutest kids in the world. I swear this melts my heart every time I see it. Harley and Joel are the funniest pair of kids ever. If you only knew the mischief that was behind all this cuteness. About 20% of the time its like DeDe and I have twins lol.


I can't even believe...this is my baby..... He is adorable though

Joel and Brooke. They have been pals since they were in the baby room at FUMC.

How you know that you are tired...

I had made Joel a snack....and he was quiet...I walked into the living room and checked on him...apparently he was tooooo tired to eat.

The rest of our Colorado Visit

In the field behind Ms Fay's subdivision is a really fun 4wheeler trail. On the trail one evening we saw some deer and a fox....We went back to get the camera and the deer were still there. The fox was not. Here are some really pretty deer.

Joel on a little ledge at Crested Butte....we went sledding again.. I'll save you *joy* of seeing more sledding pictures.

Joel and I and our little bitty snowman.

Joel serving the salad at dinner....he was really good at it. He had a blast!

The Birthday Group! We ate Dinner at this fab place...and although the food was good, the company was better.

Barry and Ms. Fay
We went to this hotdog place to was good, it was neat and we had a good time.

This concludes the Colorado trip..

The last pic is in Monroe on the trip back to CO for Gram, Ms Berny, GiGi and PawPaw Roy.

Landscapes from Colorado

I have gone thru some of my Colorado pictures and taken some of my fave landscapes. 99% of these were taken from a moving car.....there is probably some movement in the foreground...but they are ok..
The land is so beautiful there....too bad its freezing cold all the time
