Happy New Year!

Man 2006 flew by!

We had a wonderful holiday season... We didn't do any traveling
(and we missed our families) but we did have a nice quiet
Christmas at home... Some highlights:

Dave: He got almost two weeks off work! We slept in, stayed in
our PJs and just did nothing. It was glorious. Dave got a GPS
system for his car, and a sunroof deflector he had been wanting.
Santa also brought him a signed proof copy of The Godfather
Returns. One of his goals is to read it cover to cover this year...

Elena: I baked and baked and baked this holiday season. It was
so nice to take some time off and enjoy the food and my family.
I gained 4 lbs, but it was worth it enjoying everything... LOL
Now I am just going to get back into my routine to get them back
off again... Santa brought me a new laptop, router, and printer.
I love it - I can work in any room of the house now!

Jimmy: Jimmy went back to school yesterday. Getting up in
the AM again - yuck! Jimmy also opened up his very own
Bank account last week - to hold all that Christmas $$ he got!
We are teaching him to save rather than spend... Santa
brought him Heelies (which he was shocked to get) and a drum
set (which he was even more shocked to get!).

Derek: Derek is getting so big! This Christmas was probably
one of the most fun for him. He is old enough to be all excited
and anticipate Christmas morning... All he wanted was a
Snowmonster Set and a Ben Ten watch. Santa delivered that -
and then some!!

We were snowed in twice during those two Blizzards that hit
Denver, but it really wasn't that bad... Maybe Santa will get
us a snowblower next year! LOL

We were truly blessed this year...

Happy New Year!
