Well, so far this year I haven’t written 2018 on anything, so it’s been a good start to 2019. We also had our first two snowfalls of the season, but just a couple of inches each time, and of course with our awesome sunshine, it all melts before we can even get outside to shovel it!
Anyway, here’s what went on in December.
There was a little bit of The Price Is Right Live with our friend Heather, and of course neither of us were called to come on down. You know I’m going to keep trying though!!
Oh and check out this awesome band playing outside the theater.
Two days later Heather and I went to see one of our favorite bands, VNV Nation. I will never grow tired of seeing these guys, they are awesome.
That weekend, I hung out with my favorite new Coloradans, my friends Lisa and Mike and their kids David and Jacob. While Lisa and Mike went to a corporate Christmas party, I took the boys to dinner and spent the night. I *guess* you could say I babysat. Except they are teenagers. No casualties or injuries other than I was doing a craft project and stapled my finger. Oh and the dog ate my waterbrush. 🙂
The next day, we all went to the Parker town Christmas parade, then watched Mike and the kids ice skate in the cute rink they installed near the main drag. It was a lovely winter day!
The following week, I went to see Michelle Obama. Yes, the former First Lady. Being in the same building as a First Lady was pretty surreal! She sold out our huge hockey arena and she spoke for nearly two hours. Reese Witherspoon was the moderator and they discussed all sorts of things, mostly Michelle’s past. Michelle was hilarious. She talked about the first time she met Barak at her legal practice, cute stories about her daughters, and the last day in the White House.
Whether you agree with her political views or not, she is an intelligent, educated and well-spoken person, and her message is extremely powerful and positive. If everyone could be that giving and kind, the world would be such a better place.
Lots o’hockey. We went to three Avs games against the Oilers, Islanders and Canadiens. I’m pretty sure we lost all of them. At least for the Islanders game we were in a nice suite with super yummy free food!
Lastly, there was our traditional Christmas festivities which consist of:
- Skyping with my family on Christmas Eve and opening presents together
- Hanging out with JC’s parents on Christmas Day with too much food
- Watching a non-holiday movie. This time it was “Mafia” and it was really funny!
- Scrapbooking on all of my days off
So, that’s all the fun we rounded out the year with! Here’s to a new year with new adventures!
