Welcome to Colorado!

Well this definetly is not California! This weekend we experienced our first real snow storm and we got almost a foot of snow! Jeff had to go out Saturday night and shovel the driveway. Then when we woke up Sunday morning we had to shovel it again. Later that morning we walked down the street to the ponding basin, with our little green snow disc, where we got to slide down the hills. It felt so wierd to just walk down the street and be able to play in the snow like we were at a snow park. I was speechless when some snowflakes fell on my glove and I could actually see the detail of each snowflake. The other thing about the snow here is how powder like it is. Luckily for me it's difficult to make snowballs because the snow won't compact. Unfotuantly it's really difficult to make a snowman with such soft snow.

Thanksgiving Week

My parents came for a visit this past Thanksgiving which allowed for us do some sight seeing, since we were able to take time off work. On this day we toured the Denver area. First we toured Hammond's candy factory (It's nothing like Willy Wonka's factory) then went to the Denver Art Museum (pictured on the left) better known as the DAM. Lastly we walked down 16th street mall and stayed for a theater production which was quiet interesting to say the least. The production was called "The Death of Tiny Tim" which is a comedy/ reality check in a rundown part of town. This was Jeff's most memorable moment because we were unsure exactly what we were going to get once we drove up to the building. However, it was pretty decent. For me it was visiting the DAM and seeing the history that came before us and what some people call art. A wall was dedicated for people to post on sticky notes what ART is to them. So, what is ART to you?
