Mountain views

On the way home from a movie yesterday I pulled off on a fire road and took a few pictures. I always see such pretty views from here but either don't have time to stop or don't have my camera with me. Yesterday I had both time and my camera. Kinsey was a little scared of me driving up the road without any "edges" but we made it to the top and I got some great shots!

This is looking over the village of Ruidoso, NM. There are businesses and homes all through these mountains.

Yes I changed the back ground again!

I had a valentines type back ground up but after visiting 2 other blogs with the same back ground I decided I wanted a change. I went with this one because I really like the colors and it can be up for a longer time--not just a season or holiday. Enjoy!

Who says you can't make a gingerbread house in January?

Kinsey and I went to Walmart today and they had gingerbread house kits marked down to $2 so we bought one and assembled it when we got home. Here are a few pictures

It takes a lot of concentration to put the candy on.
A little taste test of the frosting had happened just before this picture.This is what she wanted to do as soon as it was done but I convinced her to let it harden a bit and let Daddy see it before we ate it.A fun afternoon activity!

I'm wondering why my little blog reader thingy over there isn't updating like it's supposed too. I rely on it to tell me when people have new posts. I just checked it out and there were no new posts. I go to people's blogs and there are all kinds of new posts. **kicking it** in hopes of getting it to update ;-)

update: well what do you know--it worked!

did I miss something?

For some reason I am suddenly getting junk mail for AARP....isn't that for people age 50+??

Hello AARP people...I just turned 39! Back off for another 11 years!

Whew...just needed to get that out.

edited to add that I finally got out of the house tonight and got the mail--I had a piece of junk mail for a magazine called More--for Women over 40! Grrrr......

Annabelle the kRaZy cat

I'm pretty sure our cat has lost her mind. Suddenly after being alive 15-16 months she has realized there is this thing that follows her every where she goes. It's like she's saying "OMG--there it is! I must attack it NOW!" She's been a pretty docile cat--even a little bit shy around strangers but now she's just concerned about that thing behind her no matter who is here. She chases it round and round, sits and watches it wave, even stares at it like that will make it go away. Yes....Annabelle has a tail.
