Happy Holidays!

The holidays are starting to bring out the "Martha" in me.

I found an idea for juniper wreaths in her magazine, and made them with my own little twist.  Tommy even helped.  :)
They were perfect place setting decoration for Christmas Eve dinner

when we feasted on this yummy turkey!

We were lucky to be joined by family.
(L to R: my brother-Will, my mom-Sundee, Tommy's Parents-Terry & Mike)

Tommy and his dad carved the turkey and we enjoyed each others' company and good food.

Christmas morning we thought we'd try something different and gave whole grain waffles a shot...not too shabby either.

Then it was off to my dad's for Christmas day dinner.

He was making his special BBQ ribs, and sharing with Tommy his techniques.

After Christmas we ventured down to the Denver Zoo to check out the Zoo Lights.

We've been having fun spending time with my brother and his new fiance!  
Add another one to the family!

And in the midst of all the holiday chaos, we can't forget to celebrate the birth of Wills.
21 this year....yikes!  I remember when he was just a baby.

The Only Thing Better.....

than Christmas...

Is a WHITE Christmas!

Just before the holiday got here, Estes got some fresh pow.

 Tommy and I prefer not to pass up a powder day at Hidden Valley

so we loaded up the car and drove into the park to make our own tracks.

It was beautiful, and not bad considering all the resorts were bare.
