I was really bad and did not take one photo while I was home for Christmas this year (unless you count a couple I took on my phone, which I will try to retrieve later). I'm going to tell you about my Denver Christmas. Russ, Eric and I decided to meet and exchange gifts on Christmas Eve morning since I was leaving the next day after I got off work. We met at my house and exchanged gifts and had a nice visit. Then Eric saw the popcorn kernels in a clear jar on my counter and asked if he could make carmel corn. I reluctantly agreed (he is a good cook but can sometimes be dangerous in the kitchen, plus I was tired). He then proceeded to burn the popcorn so bad my kitchen and living room were engulfed in a cloud of smoke. So, he figured he would air it all out by propping my back door open. I came around the corner to see all of this and immediately knew that Minnie was outside. She takes any and all opportunities to flee the confines of the house. I had to coax her out from under the back porch with a can of tuna. Eric was then temporarily banned from the kitchen but we all had a really long laugh over the circumstances...and Eric would kill me if he knew I was telling you all about this. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and is getting 2011 off to a good start. 2011 is getting off to a really rough start here in Colorado. Not so much for me but for many of my friends. Let's hope things turn around quickly!
