blessings...


What a busy, yet joyful last few days! I've basically been going non-stop since Weds eve. It started with the CRC holiday party on Thursday night, which was such a great time. So awesome seeing all of our customers/friends in one place! However, like everyone knows, when you are hosting a party, you often leave feeling like you had about a hundred two second conversations.

For those of you reading this who are not from Colorado, last week we were hit with a major snow storm, followed by a long-time (few days at least) freeze. Typical here is a huge dump followed by a quick melt within hours. So, three+ days in the negatives, 0 degree range was definitely foreign to everyone. Made for some chilling runs..but beautiful photo ops.



Today was our Sunday run/brunch/gift exchange! We started with a run from Jill's house and enjoyed the heat wave weather-wise...and ended the run singing jingle bells (with the help of Jane's real bells) trotting down the street. Everyone drew a name (thanks to an awesome site called Elfster.com) and brought something different to eat. So much good food- nice work everyone! See the tasty mimosas pictured above:).

My lovely photography poster child...Dani looks good in all my photos:).

Madster loves her apron...so perfect!

J for our dear friend Jessica...beautiful.

Kol Kol getting lost in her neck/face warmer!

Jane and Maddy practicing their curtsies!

Syd all bundled up for the run...so cute.

Preparation for the group shot...


A random man walking down the street made this group shot possible!

My first Christmas presents under the tree! Thanks so much Staci...I love them all! I got an oven mitt, frame, wooden stir spoon, two kitchen flippers (I know that's not the correct name, but I think it's cute), and finally two baking dishes!

I am so incredibly blessed to have such wonderful friends in my life...to love me, laugh with me, accept me for who I am. Love you all more than you could ever know. Thanks for sharing this special day with me.

The homeless camp was right alongside the train tracks as you turned onto the street. I didn't see it going out, but noticed it coming back :)
