living in a snowglobe

i LOVE snow! love it! since we are spending christmas in the middle of a blizzard, i thought a snowman would be a great addition. no one else wanted in on the fun, so i had a act as the cameraman too. :)

a visit with nannie and papa

we started our christmas with a trip to visit nannie and papa. we had an amazing lunch (chop salad from wildfire), lots of laughs, and great company all around. thanks fran for a yummy lunch and thank you nannie for some great frosted cookies. what a fun way to start our tour of mn.

a&m vs. iowa state

this past weekend was a busy one! katie and fran flew in on thrusday to spend the weekend with us. we spent the day shopping in canton with becca. we rushed home to meet tim and we drove to college station to meet up the chris and bret. busy night: dinner at the dixie chicken, dancing at daisy dukes, yell practice, and finally bed! saturday morning came fast. 7:30 wake up call! we were out the door ready to meet the boys to take the bus to meet an alum to tailgate. we tailgated all day! man aggies know how to tailgate! the pictures don't do the event justice. we had a great time cheering the aggies onto victory. it was so much fun. we even got halloween sunburns. i am so glad we got to spend the weekend with family.
