Snow! (Not here- in Colorado)

Kurt, Dan's bro-in-law, in Colorado, shovels the white stuff off his back porch. Nice time to use the hot tube! Dan and his sister Carolyn actually got locked out of Kurt/Bev's house a couple of years ago and spent the whole night in the hot tub to keep warm- in the middle of a snowy winter. Two summers ago, Dan and I sat on this back porch and our faces felt like they were blistering due to the sun- and the thinner atmosphere. Colorado does have great seasons:-)

Waiting for Santa? No!

You'd think that our little blue Angel was waiting for Santa and his raindeer to pull up to the house, but no- Russell is waiting for the UPS man who brings such nice things from a wonderful place called ''. The nice man in his brown outfit rings the doorbell and dashes away before we can even get to the door- he'd easily beat Santa in a disappearing act! Mom and Dad love Amazon because they have rock-bottom prices and they can shop while their little boy is asleep in his bed. Merry Christmas! Posted by Picasa

Christmas Photo Shoot

On Sunday, we did our photo shoot for the Christmas card. Needless to say, you'll be receiving them a little late this year. I still feel like it is October so we're behind in the scheme of things. Russell has recently started to blow bubbles with his mouth and what results is a very wet shirt. He is quite proud of his talent and will show it to you if you encourage him! We also decided not to decorate the little tree this year since he enjoys playing with it so much and I don't want him to hurt himself on sharp edges. The lights are fiber optic so we don't have to worry about wires, either!

Check out this view from the Blue Angels! The Golden Gate bridge and park can be seen in the background. Our friend, Derrick, sent this picture out to us.

A few 'stolen' pictures from 'Peters' Paridise'!

Merry Christmas from California! We love these kind of snowflakes because we don't have to shovel them:-)

Union Square downtown SF. Lots and lots of lights and people!

The Sir Francis Drake Hotel lobby. It was at this hotel that Dan's work Christmas party was hosted.

Happy Birthday bouquet from my parents:-) It is beautiful.
