Ooh...it is cold

We are in Colorado. It is cold. Very cold. We are having a good time. The drive out here was long, 6 hours to Amarillo and 6 hours to Pueblo. The drive to Amarillo was the worst. It took nearly and hour and a half to get out of Dallas. Plus, it was night and we were tired so it seemed to take FOREVER to get to Amarillo.

We met our grandmother on my Dad's side on Saturday when we got in to town. We met a lot of our family on my Dad's side on Sunday when we had a lunch time barbecue. Everyone was really nice. It is kind of weird that some of them remember me from when I was a tiny baby.

We went to Breckenridge yesterday to see some big snow. That was great fun. I have never seen so much snow. We drove up to the ski lift areas, parked and ate sandwiches for lunch in the snow. We also did a little sledding down the road. That was fun, especially since we have never been sledding.

Then we went up to their (Dad and Nita's) cabin. It was very rustic, I had to pee in a bucket (TMI). We took pictures, played Scrabble and ate dinner. Aaron shot a Magnum 357 right before we left. I knew the gunshot was going to be loud, but it was still a surprise when it went off.

I have lots of pictures, but I can't upload from here. I will post more pics as soon as I am back in town.

Oh, and I got a gift card to a local yarn shop. We are going there today.

PS: To my secret pal, THANK YOU for the wonderful yarn and yarn cutter pendant. It was wonderful. I took pictures right before I left town, but didn't upload them to my server correctly so the pics are unviewable. =(
There is a little story behind the yarn you gave me that made it extra great, but I can't tell the story until the Secret Pal 7 is completed.
I just wanted to say THANKS!!

You are very welcome- I'm glad you got it! I had a hard time picking something out, since where I went the yarns were all SOOO pretty.
