All is quiet on New Year’s Day…

Happy New Year!

It’s been an eventful couple of weeks!

Christmas in Greeley was relatively quiet and definitely white!!  (Think Colorado Christmas by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band… lovely!)  Tina’s sister and niece came up from Colorado Springs to visit on Christmas day (with tiny Jersey the chihuahua), and Lady (the giant St. Bernard) was here also, so we had quite the houseful of animals.  Tina whipped up a couple of magnificent meals – king crab legs on Christmas Eve, and ham, turkey, and all the stuff to go with them on Christmas Day.

My trip to Rock Springs was delayed by a day due to the closed highways in Wyoming, so I headed up there on Sunday morning.  I spent lots of time with the girls and mom and dad, and lots of time doing tech support on Rhiannon’s computer, Dad’s wireless network…  It was good to actually succeed at it though!!  I always like a good challenge.  Er… most of the time, anyway.  I had loads of delicious food – ham, lamb, pork, homemade chicken & noodle soup… I pretty much had to roll myself out to the car when I finally left.  I also got to play some Wii!  Which immediately convinced me that I simply must have one.  So on New Year’s Day after I got back from RS, I proceeded straight to Game Stop and got rid of the gift cards I’d been saving for a special occasion – got a Wii, Wii Fit Plus, and a couple of games.  Still need more though!  Oh yes, I said “need”.

Here are some pics of the Wii and dinner festivities at Randy’s house, and some of the girls and me at Mom’s.

Also this year, I went out for New Year’s Eve for the first time since the Las Vegas Road Trip of December-January 1999-2000!  Tina and I went to the lovely and cool and classy Kress Cinema.  It is a gorgeous place that opened up in Greeley not too long ago – a remodel of an old downtown building into this wonderful intimate movie theater with a lounge and bar.  I’m SO not cool enough to hang out there, but I love the place anyway.  For New Year’s Eve, they had a swing band in the lounge, and showed When Harry met Sally in the theater.  Shockingly, I realized that I had never seen the whole movie!!  It was great and funny, with much better food than you can get at the local multiplex, and a terrific precursor to watching the ball drop on the big screen!  It was a nice low-key but festive New Year’s Eve, with a good excuse to get dressed up!  Here are some pics from that night:
