Family Photos, Christmas and Snow!

I know I'm a little late with these, but some folks are still feeling the leftover remnants of the Christmas spirit, so I'm going to share these while it's still timely.

My family visited last week for 5 days so some of these pix are of them. The others from Christmas are of my in-laws, or second family. Gotta admit, having an extended family here in Colorado has made the move and transition after marriage so much easier. It's like I didn't lose anything, only gained, when I moved.

Christmas this year was a WHITE one. The first white Christmas I've seen in probably 15 years. Sure, it's snowed near the day, but not ON the day. This year, we got about 6 inches and it fell at varying speeds almost all day. Provided some very nice pictures as you can see:

Here is the direct link to view the full album online:

Colorado Christmas 2007

For the family visit, we toured the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Colorado, spent time touring new homes as part of the search upon which Stuart and I are embarking, visited Denver to see Invesco Field at Mile-High as well as the Aquarium and took the Cog Railway to the top of Pike's Peak. Here are some pictures from those adventures.

Family Visits Colorado

I guess that's all for now. My first book releases in February, so I'm gearing up for a short blog tour on many other web sites. I'll also be starting monthly giveaways to those who enter the contests starting in February, so stay tuned for lots of new and exciting things coming down the pike...in addition to the continuation of weekly blog spotlights with FREE book giveaways.

Thanks for your continued support. I wouldn't be where I am without you!

Loved the pictures and your snow. Don't want any snow of my own after having ankle fusion in Sept. Also have a daughter driving back and forth 80 miles one way daily to College for this year and next. Your book looks very interesting like something I would enjoy greatly.
God Bless.

Thanks, Cheryl. Good to see you drop by. Of course, you'll be coming back again in the next week for your own spotlight here, but it's nice to have you a smidgeon early. :)

As for snow, I guess you wouldn't want what we've got. Praise God you're up and moving around though. I'm sure your daughter will be safe and protected on her drive. Keep her bathed in prayer.

As for my book, not too much longer will you have to wait. :)

I am so excited for you and your book coming out. I can imagine you counting the days now, it is almost upon us. I will be watching for your interviews, your book sounds great. Being from Colorado ourselves, I have gotten some fantastic shivery frost scenes trapped on the camera chip and installed into our screen saver to savor throughout the year.

Thanks, Pam. I AM counting the days. If only I knew the exact day my book releases to the club. I believe it's February 15th (which is the same day book 3 is due to my editor). Phew!

As for the snow, I'd love to see some of your frosty scenes if you'd like to share them.

Now, back to writing for me!
