Did I really live here for so long? I guess I seem to have forgotten.
I love being close to family: dinner, hanging out, chatting up all that is going on in life all face-to-face rather than via a blog or a chat window. A short drive and I can go shopping with my sister and a few extra minutes (okay an hour) and I am sitting in my childhood living room watching satellite television with my parents. A little further and I'm hanging out with my younger brother again. I miss that I will admit. I'm seeing all of those little babies growing up before my eyes, but from a distance. My nephews are taller than I...I wish we could all be closer but I don't miss ALL things Nebraska.
Actually, I miss the mountains...

Chiefs nine-time Pro Bowl TE Tony Gonzalez (10,011) needs just 50 yards to surpass TE Shannon Sharpe (10,060) for the most receiving yards by a tight end in NFL history. He needs just four more yards against the Broncos to become the first tight end in league annals to own 1,000 career receiving yards against three different franchises (Denver, Oakland and San Diego).
How cool would it be for Tony G. to get this record against the team Shannon Sharpe played for so many years?? That would be something to write home about.
So here's to Tony G. getting the record and hopes that the Chiefs will beat the team that seems to think they are good...but are in fact, just lucky.

The day started early: so much to do in a short amount of daylight hours! We loaded up the car and headed to the South. After a short detour through the Starbucks store in Castle Rock, CO, we headed up into the front range mountains. We of course had to take the scenic route via CO 67. On the route, we stopped at a cute little mountain gas station and were greeted by a sweet couple willing to offer us some fantastic homemade cinnamon rolls (for a small fee of course!). They were almost as good as Grandma use to make! We continued on and enjoyed the drive through the mountains to Woodland Park. The approach to Pike's Peak Highway proved to show the road was open to the summit. We paid the price and we began the slow, winding trek to the top. We have tons of photos, however - the videos are the best!
So what is with the blog title you say? Everywhere we went today, we got a parking spot right in the front; we didn't need 'the moms' parking pass. It was fabulous! We figured that meant today was the perfect day!
Well, we both need to pack as we fly out tomorrow: Danelle back home and me to Omaha for work.

A little airbrush action...
Waiting for tickets to the game after working hard!
Such a cute couple :o)
Fans waiting to enter the stadium. Look at all the red!
David Cook and his brother sing the National Anthem.
I didn't get the entire singing of the National Anthem, but I got the end (which is the best part) and the fly-over.
They are losing already...
Herm does not look happy...
...but neither do the players.
Saying thanks for safety while praying for a win next week!
I must get some sleep...

We had a great time. I'm glad I went back down for the actual race. Next year, I'm betting the Pooches walk will be longer and I won't have the energy!

Only two days left before the Pooches in Pink at The Garden of The Gods! If you have not donated or jumped on board to race/walk, what are you waiting for?? To make a donation, click here.
I mean seriously, how can you resist this face???
Take a quite minute to donate to this awesome cause! Unfortunately, I fell off of the top 5 fundraisers for this event. I'm not far behind though so a small amount will help! It would be so cool to see my name on that list again; the donation I received for $.56 even helps so don't be shy!!
I will have pictures of the race posted for you in just 3 short days!! After that, I won't bug you again for at least 6 months :o)
Mit besten Grüßen,

Our office/living room in the lower level.
The dining room. Notice the new place mats I picked up at a garage sale (they are leaves!)
Living room - no sofa yet - but if you know of a nice one cheap, I'm game!
The bedroom. No bedside tables other than tv trays. Again, if you know of any...
Another bedroom view...
Lots of pieces missing but this house is much bigger than our last one so it is a little more difficult to fill it. The good news is that Mike is working and so we are slowly getting ourselves back out in front. We simply must remember that all that we have means nothing compared to the gift of Jesus Christ! All that I have belongs to God!
I'm going to go play around with some scrapbooking.
