The girls made candy too, because cookies aren’t enough of a sugar rush.

More than a little taste testing.

December Daily | Merry Christmas

My old friend, Ray, let me in on a little secret: Downtown Golden is the place to be for Christmas lights.

He told me of a very large tree where each delicate branch is wrapped in lights like a canopy of brightly colored stars.


This Christmas season, may you take time to look at the lights…

May you stand still in the quiet…

May you look with wonder like a kid…

May you walk slowly and enjoy each moment…

May you hug your loved ones tighter than you ever have before…

May your heart be filled with laughter…

And, may you…

Joy to the world. ~John 2:10-11

December Daily | Twenty-three, Snow and other things…

rocky mountains

We finally got snow last week! And, as luck would have it, I went to my old office to work for the day…in the snow storm. It felt like going home to visit your crazy family after being away for a while. Familiar but different; and always entertaining.

Rocco was so intent watching “Christmas in Yellowstone” on PBS. He really perked up when the red fox came on the screen.

Live wreaths were delivered via Fed-x to loved ones.

Thor is not taking his eyes off that dog treat!

I used this recipe except I cut mine out with a bone-shaped cookie cutter. Thor and Rocco gave the treats two paws up!

December Daily | Nineteen, Girls Day

december daily

Alex and I went shopping for one last gift. But before we headed to the mall we stopped by Starbucks for a mid-morning treat, Mocha Frappaccino and a Sugar-Free Iced Latte.

The mall was a mad-house (of course) and even Alex (a.k.a. mall rat) didn’t want to deal with the crowd. We then went to Pier 1 Imports and had fun trying on Mardi Gras masks.

Alex talked me into stopping at Walmart to buy her a few pairs of colored skinny jeans that are so in fashion. Then, we ended our day by meeting Daddy and Parker at Panda Express for a late lunch/early dinner. Orange Chicken…Yum!
