We got a little taste of Spring weather in the midst of winter and decided to take advantage of it.
We took the boys out to the river a few days ago and had a Great time! Murph loves the water! He's definitely got some Newfie in him. Hutch and Charlie are not quite as comfortable in the water as he is but they are coming around. See the big smile on Murphy's face in the picture below:
This is as deep as Charlie got in the water.
Mom is trying out her Christmas present. She sank one on the first try!
Jason and I spent Christmas morning at our house and celebrated together, enjoying a relaxing Christmas day. This was the first time we exchanged Christmas gifts since we've been married :-) We decided that we should do the same next year! I had no idea how good he is at picking gifts for me ;-) He picked out a beautiful pattern and the yarn to make it. I cast on immediately. I love it! I'll post a picture once I've gotten a little more done. We ate a late Christmas lunch with my mom's side of the family. It was another delicious meal (pot roast, potatoes and gravy, deviled eggs, etc. followed by rum cake and molasses stack cake). Yum! I didn't get a picture of that spread b/c I was too hungry :-) Trust me, it was good.
Lance and Jason are pictured below (too full to move after eating). This sight struck me as funny (they both have their cell phone/PDA's out).
I think this post has gotten a bit too lengthy so I'll just leave you with a teaser for the next post. It felt like a Spring day today so we took the dogs to the river. We all had a great time! I can't believe how warm it was. I'll post more pictures of our day at the river later.

We went to a wedding this weekend. One of Jason's Army buddies got married. Here we are afterwards (back at the hotel). We had a good time.
Remember these? I finally finished Jason's socks. One has been done for quite some time now but it's mate was just completed this week. Now his feet are warm :-) (If you are wondering what that dark spot is, it's apple cider: Jason accidentally dropped the sock in his apple cider mug right after I finished them).
And also I took a little video of Lilo rolling around in her ball. She's such a cutie!

I just got back from Nashville last weekend. It was just a weekend trip (and it was a day of class) but I had a good time. I went with my mom and dad. Dad and I took a course. We also went on a carriage ride and to the Grand Ole Opry. It was a lot of fun packed into a weekend. I hope Jason and I can go to Nashville sometime soon for a nice mini-vacation. I think we could have a lot of fun!
This was my second visit to the Opry. It was the Opry's 83rd birthday the night we went. Below is the group Riders in the Sky with the huge birthday cake. Kenny Rogers and Darryl Worley were also there.
This was pretty cool. Check out all the pumpkins!
Here Mom and Dad are in downtown Nashville.
And below is a really cute gift that the girls at the office got for me for bosses' day! Even though I'm not really the boss (they were very kind to include me). :-) See her earrings and hair bow!
And here she is having a beer. I guess Jason thought she needed one ;-)

I also finally finished a pair of socks for my mom. I intended to make them for her for Mother's Day...then her birthday...but it just became a matter of me getting them done at some point :-) Fortunately it was before Christmas! :-) She tried them on for me last week and they fit very nicely! I am very pleased ;-)
