Holiday Bowl!

Headline: Cowboy Eats Duck, Chokes On Tail End.

We managed to score some great seats at last night's Holiday Bowl near the fifty yard line on the Cowboys side of the field. First off let's just say there were way too many duck fans at that game. Even on our side of the field we were elbow to elbow in Green Muck. But we managed to create an orange and black bubble of raucous fun with the help of a goodly portion of Holiday Cheer (Bourbon & Rum) and grilled meats. Brandon instructed us on the appropriate angle of declination for the Waving Wheat. He subscribes to the more conservative practice of Waving only after a touchdown instead of after every score. Needless to say there weren't near enough chances to Wave last night but there's nothing quite like college football live and we all had a great time despite the disappointing outcome of the game. We staggered back up the hill after the game hoping the other Oklahoma bowl bound team comes with gun's a blazin'
Thinking of all you Cowboy and Sooner fans and wishing you a
Happy New Year!

Birthday Girls Hit Double Digits

Ivy and Alaina spent their last day as 9-year olds at home for a snow day and will spend their 10th birthday the same way. They are excited to be getting older and have been telling people that they are already 10 for months.

Ten Years ago things were just about to get very crazy, thank goodness we got our own set of twins.

Eye to the Sky

Looks like we should get a great view of this, at least tonight, with a clear dark sky.

This is a pic of our back porch. With a small space heater, grow light and insulation rolled out on the floor, plants should flourish. Afternoon sun makes it warmer than the living room at times.
