Boise and Birthday Bash

Monday, Vance and I drove to Boise to celebrate Mom's (Grandma's) 77th birthday. It was a gala affair. She requested Vance's infamous BBQ Salmon and garlic mashed potatoes. Joe, Laurie and boys came to celebrate. Stephen hopped up and did the dishes without being asked, I wanted to take a picture and show David how it works :-) Gabe tackled trying to fix some technical problem with Granpa's cable box. We topped it off with an vanilla and chocolate (yes you heard right - chocolate) ice cream cake from TCBY. It was yummy! The picture of mom isn't the great and the photographer is suspect.

Here is a picture of Grandpa settling in on a COLD, low energy day. It's his favorite place to sit and listen to books, watch TV and spend time with Grandma.

Winter Scenes

A December snowstorm that dumped 4 inches in a couple of hours.

Ben making snow angels

How much snow we have now and have had for 3 weeks.

Somewhere is this snowbank is my cell phone.

As the thermometer dips into the single digits for the high in Idaho Falls, I have to remind myself how beautiful winter wonderlands can be. This winter has been the snowiest and coldest. We've had a foot of snow since December 24 and I don't think it's going to melt soon. Because I'm not a winter-sport person, I have a tendency to complain about the drab winter days, but then I remind myself of the holidays, the fireplace, and time spent indoors with my family playing games, eating popcorn, watching movies, and how good hot chocolate tastes and feels after being outside for awhile.

Todd and his family know how to enjoy the snow!

A winter from the past.

Handsome Carson is Here!

Here are a couple of pictures of Carson Crockett, born December 24, 2007 at 1:03 AM. Quick glance he definitely is a Crockett, but he does have Mel's nose, upper lip, and big eyes. He's quite the handsome guy if you ask me:-)
