Hiya, blog readers! Bless you for sticking it out, and waiting for me to return. I've missed blogging terribly, and won't even attempt to catch up on everything. These late January posts are a bit out of order, but honestly, it doesn't really matter. The photos are filled with beauty and humor, and I couldn't be happier to jump right back into blogging! Happy New Year!

Colorado weather is ALWAYS amusing:
This was the temp on Saturday, January 29.
School has been canceled for Tuesday, February 1
because the temps will be about -3 F. Go figure.
Our theme at church for 2011 is "Blessed to Be a Blessing"
and I have to admit, there is a part of me that always chuckles
at the thought of this scene from Christmas Vacation.
The big ole tree in Castle Rock had even
bigger Christmas presents underneath it.
If you look closely at this picture, you'll see that the office ladies actually reserved the room for the purpose I requested: underwater basket-weaving! (water optional)
What IS baptism? We're learning lots this year.
