A nice white blanket for Portland

After much wishing, and hoping, and dreaming and praying, my kids were thirlled to embrace a little white miracle. For the second Winter break in a row, we recieved bucket loads of snow.

I suppose those wonderful new snow pants and boots from Christmas, will come in handy after all.

The Christmas Hull

Yes some nice candid shots of the kids opening gifts would be cute. A snap shot of the chirstmas tree twinkling in the early morning hours is gorgeous. I do have those pics, but today you are being treated with the HULL. Here is what everyone got for Christmas and what they looked like in the morning. I saved my pic for last because it is the most gorgeous, so flattering. I particularly like that the picture was taken at an angle to ensure the doubling in size of my legs. Enjoy! and giggle a bit along the way.

Blazer Madness

A couple of Saturdays ago, Chet and I were given the opportunity to attend a Blazer Game. Thanks to the sweet winnings of our friend Brent, we enjoyed the luxury of a suite and special visits from past Blazer players.

It was fun to watch the team warming up

Chet and I cheered to our hearts content ( BJ Would kill me if she saw this picture)

Then of course because it was my first Blazer game,Our main man ODEN went down with a serious injury within the first 5 min. Brent said I was a curse, and that I couldn't come to a game ever again.

We managed to still have a fantastic time, and the Blazers pulled out a win 90-89

During a visit with former Blazer players, this snap shot was taken.

Afterwards, the tall whit gentleman in the back bumped into me. The height difference was extraordinary. He looked down at me and said, "Oh hello down there, you know you and I should do dancing with the stars together." I said I would gladly comply and to call me any time.
