More Christmas!

So I partook in the annual Christmas outing to cut down the family Christmas trees for the Barrow family. It starts with some Bosa donuts, a drive up past Alamogordo, riding out to the middle of no where and searching for the perfect tree.
Checking out the chainsaw.

Mike got one!

The boys.

My random gingerbread house I made.

Mike putting up the Christmas lights.

Lots of treats!

Favorite Dance Routine SYTYCD

So I am sad to say that the season of So You Think You Can Dance is now over. What am I to watch now? I'm not exactly liking the winner, but I wanted to post my favorite routine by Wade Robson this season.

Las Cruces got some snow! I guess it is not very common here, but ortunately for me, my first winter here was a snowy one. Also, I got one snow day and a two hour delay on Tuesday!
Our neighborhood the next morning.

The school football field.

My doorway at school. So icy!

The cars!

It's Christmas!

Time to decorate! I am so excited! It's neat to find little things and know that these will be ours for years to come.
My mom gave us some mountain biking ornaments...this one is the boy.

This is the girl mountain biker.
The loft tree. This is for all our ornaments with our memories.

The downstairs mantle so far...until I can find our stockings! :( They disappeared!

Let it Snow!

Thanksgiving 2009

So Las Vegas was our chosen destination this year for Thanksgiving. Our first Thanksgiving! :) These pictures are a little out of order, but here is what we crammed into four days of vacation!

We played Apples to Apples after eating our second Thanksgiving dinner.

Dave and his sexy pose. (I had to post it!)
This was our first Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday at my Dad and Georgia's place.

A little game of Spades.

I love this picture. I was trying to get the turkey frying but if you look in the background, my dad is playing with all the kids. So cute.

Mike had to get in a little Call of Duty with Josh.:)

I had to check out the tree house.

We went to the Bellagio and saw some big and real pumpkins!

The trees rained!

We had to have some sushi too!

This was at the El Paso airport after we had to walk to our long term parking in the overflow parking lot. It was so far!

The first day we were there, I went to Sarah's school to eat lunch with her.

We went bowling at Red Rock Lanes.

And drank some Tropical favorite!

We also went to Bootleg Canyon for a little mountain biking too!

The view of Lake Mead! So cool!

Riding the trails.

We had such a great time! Thanks to my family! :)
