Happy New Year!
It is time for me to get started again. We have had a wonderful holiday season and today, New Year's Day, is a great way to bring it all to a close with the promise of the new journey in 2009. We watched the Rose Parade this morning - beautiful weather and gorgeous floats.
We have had lots and lots of snow and cold weather in December here in southwest Montana as has everyone all over. Christmas was spent with our son, Stan, his wife, Rainy and - of course, Weston here in Bozeman. We then drove to Missoula in a snowstorm to celebrate more and help my Dad enjoy his 90th birthday on the 26th. Our son, Roy, and his family from Portland, were not able to join us as you know how much snow Portland had during those Christmas days.
Here is a picture of two of "my boys" tasting one of the batches of sugar cookies on Christmas Eve day. The cookies were a hit. We ended up making several batches and worked to find "the best ever" recipe. Any excuse will do!
Have a wonderful New Year's Day and a blessed 2009.
