After a long hiatus from my little sewing projects (almost entirely due to the discovery of gardening), I finally got back at it. I cut out all the pieces for this pink ball back before gardening season hit, but I never got around to sewing it. I knew I wanted to make a ball for [...]
Yes, this really is Joel. I absolutely love snow, and I think God knew that I hadn’t met my snow quota in quite some time. I had heard some talk of a major snowstorm, but I’ve become jaded by promises like that after so many years in the south. Tuesday (Oct. 27) evening after work [...]
Weekend before last, we ventured to Quandary Peak. We camped (in the 20s!!), and summitted Quandary Peak the next day. There was a lot of snow up on the mountain, and it was SUPER windy at the top. The best part was…no altitude sickness for me! After both of my bad experiences over the summer, [...]
Last Saturday, we went to the quarterly police bike auction (bike theft is apparently bad here), and we got bikes! Mine was $30 (but needs a number of parts), and Joel’s was $60 (doesn’t need any work). Unfortunately, we didn’t know you could get there an hour early to actually view the bikes before you [...]
This week, we’ve got nothing going on…but last week we did a few fun things. Joel’s old co-worker, Jonathan, and his wife Kristine came to Denver for the week, so we got to spend some time with them. Here are a few pictures from our trip to Silverthorne (outlet mall area that has a stream [...]
Everything went smoothly with moving in…well almost. Our box springs wouldn’t fit up the stairway, so we had to buy a “split” box springs (thank you big lots). Everything is good now though! After we had been here a couple of days, my mom came out to help me (ok, she did all the work) [...]
Since we’ve been here 2 weeks, it’s about time I posted! Here are a few pics from our drive here…more posts to come this week… What is this, Bonnaroo?? Nope, just a good ol’ race at the Kansas Motor Speedway.
We had a big surprise on Sunday – a huge going away party from our church friends and family! Courtney told us we were having a ‘youth worker’ lunch, but little did we know that she and Carla were instead planning a big potluck for us. Here’s the picture from when we walked in. Our [...]
Sadly, we had to leave our garden behind. We will miss that guy (and definitely wouldn’t have put all that $ into it if we knew we were moving!), but we’ll start a new one in Denver. Here’s a picture from a week or two ago when we were packing one day…and yes, the little [...]
And so it is…we’ve been moved out for a week. Packing was more stressful than I imagined, but we got it done (amidst frustration at how much stuff we apparently have). It’s sad to say goodbye to our house after all the work we (and my parents) have put into it, but the time was [...]
