Feliz Navidad

Merry Christmas and Happy 2009!!!  We were blessed to both have two weeks off to travel up north and see family.  We never take that time for granted, especially now that there are little ones who make the holidays so much fun!  We love and miss you already!

We went snowboarding with Eric and Becky, along with my cousin Christopher and his friend one evening at Timber Ridge.  It snowed non-stop and made for awesome snowboarding!  
my love...
Eric & Becky, who celebrated their 5th anniversary December 27...congratulations, guys!
"sisters, sisters...there were never such devoted sisters!"

Directors of the Christmas Program at school.  Mrs. Walters, the music teacher, and myself...:)
Chula led the charge home to MI for the 1st week of Christmas vacation

I know this shot is gross, but I thought it was so funny.  Chula likes to ride around my shoulders sometimes in the car. 

I was so excited to go out to eat with some of my "old" students who wanted to get together.  I miss them!!!

I helped Becky give Layle a bath...she is so precious!

It is official, we have a northern doggy.  She LOVED the snow!
