Ghosts of 2006

As we stand on the cusp of a new year, it is time to reflect on the year that was 2006. Needless to say, the most pivotal event of 2006 for me was the fires that threatened my little town last summer. What that in mind, I give you "A Spotted Tail Christmas Tree." This little tree was cut down from within the Spotted Tail burn area to commemorate the fires of 2006:


Look upon its burned branches and be thankful for, and aware of, every single moment in your life...cuz' it can truly all go up in flames in a heartbeat.

So, my little ones, may 2007 bring you moments of joy and wonder, good health, and no fires....

Gotta love that snow!



Today we finally got a dusting of snow...it's been much too warm and dry here (though that's not unusual in December), and though there are a LOT of outside decorations up (good weather does have its advantages), we all felt we were missing something. Well, today it's feelin' a whole lot more like Christmas!

Of course, the snow will likely be gone by Dec. 25, but for this moment, it's perfect! And the moment is what matters, right little ones!?!

Aspenglow.....

("Through the Pine" by ~DKBB~)

See the sunlight through the pine
Taste the warm of winter wine
Dream of softly falling snow
Wnter skol...Aspenglow

As the winter days unfold
Hearts grow warmer with the cold
Peace of mind is all we know
Winter skol...Aspenglow

Aspen is a life to live
See how much there is to give
See how strongly you believe
See how much you may receive

Smiling faces all around
Laughter is the only sound
Memories that can't grow old
Winter skol...Aspenglow

Aspen is a life to live
See how much there is to give
See how strongly you believe
See how much you may receive

See the sunlight through the pine
Taste the warm of winter wine
Dream of softly falling snow
Winter skol...Aspenglow
Winter skol...Aspenglow

(Lyrics to Aspenglow by John Denver)

This is my favorite holiday song of all time. I love John Denver...his music touches my heart and soul in so many ways...maybe it's because I'm a Rocky Mountain child....

May your holidays be filled with music you love, memories you cherish, and the joy and adventure of new discoveries, and may you - my little ones - enjoy every single moment of this holiday season!
