Wisconsin Pictures

Here are a few pictures of what we did in Wisconsin this Christmas break. We arrived at Al's parents on Monday before Christmas. There was approximately 12" on the ground, but shortly after arriving the clouds opened up and the snow came down in full force!

and skiing...

We went skiing at Nordic Mountain the last day we were there. This was Callan's first time, she did great! Dalton was hooked on the thrill of the big hills. I took my time and enjoyed the scenery.

Merry Belated Christmas!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays, we definately are having fun. Waupaca has received record snowfall for the December dating back to 1887 - WOW!! I think they have received approximately 50" so far this month with 6 more inches expected tonight. The kids have been sledding and making snowmen - what a great Christmas. When I get home and situated, I'll post pictures of our fun activities. Have a safe and happy new year!

Good Samaritan Sued???

I am not sure what this world is coming to when a good samiritan gets sued. I would hate to think that in order for someone to help another human being, they would have to check with local and state laws as well as have them sign a waiver of liability before helping someone in distress. Being a nurse, I always felt I was somewhat protected from lawsuits as long as there was not an exchange of money. Obviously I was very wrong.

Snow in Huntington, Texas

I can't believe we had snow this week. Again, I was reminded why I do not leave where it snows regularly - I can't drive! I am terrified to drive in snow, partly because falling snow while driving makes me dizzy and partly because I am constantly afraid I will end up in a ditch.

Dalton's 14th Birthday Party

I can't believe my baby is fixin' to be 14 years old! Where has the time gone? For his party, Dalton decided he wanted a couple friends to spend the night and watch movies and play video games all night long. For his birthday dinner, Dalton picked hamburgers on the grill and chocolate cake with chocolate and peanut butter frosting - YUMMY!

They had a really good time!

Bush Shoe Incident - 2 shoes thrown at President Bush during press conference in Iraq

I am really surprised Bush didn't take off his own shoes and throw them at the journalist being the tactful president that he is. I bet it crossed his mind, though!

Alvin and The Chipmunks - The Christmas Song - movie scene

Winter Sucks!!!

Pretty Sunrise and Sunset...

Two things I miss about living out west are the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I took these pictures on separate days. The first one was an amazing sunrise yesterday morning. I could not pass up this photo opportunity, so I ran across our road in my PJ's. I am hoping the neighbors did not see because they might think I was losing my mind ( :

The second picture was a couple of Saturdays ago. We were returning from a pig auction and I had Al pull over so Callan and I could take pictures.

We just don't get sunrises and sunsets like these very often so I thought I would share my pictures with you all.
