Hippie New Year

Boy it is great to be back home, but I have not been able to get back in the groove. I guess I am still on vacation. It will be pretty rough when I have to go back to work on January 12th. I sure hope I can get up in time. We have really enjoyed sleeping late.

Our trip to Denver was super. The boys were excited about their new Wii games but we still managed to get out and do some fun things. We spent part of a day in Estes Park. We even ate at The Stanley. This is where they filmed The Shining! It was a beautiful hotel and I am sure we could not afford to stay there and we might not want to either.  

While DIL had a photo shoot we went to the Estes Park Museum. It is a local museum and sort of small but the Sixties Exhibit kept everyone happy. Who knew a few wigs, ties, hats and love beads would be such a hit.

When we returned home we turned right around and went to visit friends for a New Year celebration. One of my gifts this year  to a dear friend was some Happy New Year cards. So here are shots some of them. I delivered some of the cards before I took pictures… I just forgot to take a picture. Like I said, it has been hard to get back in the swing of things.  The clock card is part of my resolution to use what I have. Those clocks have been in my stash for at least 4 years! I really like the way the card turned out and I had enough to make 3 cards and still have a few clocks left over for something else.
