Ninjabread Boys!

I made my mom's gingerbread boy cookie recipe over the weekend (which she received from a nun, so they're holy cookies) and it was definitely an undertaking but so worth it!

Getting out the ingredients. Hoping I hadn't forgotten anything because I didn't want to leave the house again that night.

The Ninjas ready to go into the oven.

ALL DONE! These ones are kinda lumpy but I promise they still taste delicious.

Now these are not the ingredients or instructions I used for my cookies, but they're what came with the cookie cutters and they are hilarious. :) Please read and enjoy!

Los Alamos in a Cloud

Los Alamos was covered in a dense fog this last weekend and because of the altitude it looks like we were a part of a cloud.

Livin' the Good Life

Cuddling with the puppy.

Playing the X-Men video game.

Staring into the creepy Pirate eyes... :)

Christmastime is Here!

Here are a few pictures I've taken of our house decorated for Christmas:

Here's my Willow Tree Nativity that my parents gave me last year.

The Christmas tree with my dog in the way. :)

Our little Christmas tree, which is just the right size for our little house.

Our stockings (humans and animals) and the nativity calendar that I've had since childhood.  All of this is displayed on my favorite wood wall... :) Maybe I'll get it covered with curtains or a tapestry at some point in time.

Snow, Snow, SNOW

Thursday it began snowing midday and just kept on showing throughout the night.

Russ' work was canceled but mine wasn't.... he was nice enough to get up, clear off the car and then drive me to work. :)

Roxy and Pirate liked running after snowballs when Russ threw them.

Roxy wasn't sure what to do about the cold stuff stuck to her nose. Silly dog.

Work Out Room

Russ cleaned up his work out room today and I wanted to share the pictures because it is a great room. :)

Here's his bike on the trainer with my beach cruiser in the background.

Two more of his bikes and some jerseys.

My elliptical machine. :)

And Russ has many of his race numbers and swim caps on the wall.

This room is, by far, the best decorated and put together room in our house and it was all done by Russ.

I'm a very bad blogger. Lo siento, friends.

Here are some pictures of my pups from when we went to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving.

Here's Roxy  on the drive to my Nana's house in Cherokee. She's a fantastic car rider. :)

Here's Pirate and Roxy investigating Nana's. They loved it!

Taking a nap with Russ. (The Macy's Parade made them all very sleepy.)

Roxy resting with Becca in the back of the car.

Russ' Blog

Russ has just started writing a blog about cycling.  You should all check it out, there's so many new things we can all learn from it. :)
