A different Colorado Tour

So our cousin Matt has been visiting us. We are so glad he is here:

Matt is into crafting his own beers and wanted to see some of our we did a lot:
Oskar Blues
Left hand tap
New Belgium

We also had some good eats by Jody (of course) and
Old Chicago

But it hasn't been all food and drink. Holly wanted us to do the nature Sunday after church we went out to Nature....we went down along the Platte River here in town and walked along the was really warm (about 95) out, but we had a good time...

We have really enjoyed having Matt here, and showing him the sites. We wish more family would come to visit and enjoy the same great Colorado Hospitality....
Hope you had a great time Matt....

KLG Enterprises

My mom's friend Kathy makes jewelry. She has made some really pretty pieces and each time she comes to visit she has new things to show us. We have enjoyed sharing her pieces with others too, such as Carol and Nadine. I however, have not ever had any pieces for myself.

This time when Kathy came, she had some she made just for me. Aren't they pretty? The stones are really small Geodes and she does all the gold wire work to set the stones. (the gold chain for the necklace is mine and works perfectly with the pieces)

So I decided to wear them to church today:

Thanks Kathy!

Dinner Party

It is not often I have enough people over to actually use the dinning last night I got an opportunity. My parents friends Kathy and Miguel Gonzales were here for the night, before the 4 of the left on their trip. So I decided to make a beef tenderloin roast, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, honeydew, and cantaloupe. Then I served the below mentioned cupcakes for dessert. It was all delish!

Lately Jody has been trying her luck at cupcakes. Perhaps she watched one to many episodes of Cupcake Wars. Anyway, last week we had chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. It was a box recipe and pre-made frosting, so they were good, but not quite homemade.

So this week, Jody was a little more adventurous. She  decided to make Red Velvet cupcakes from scratch with homemade cream cheese frosting.

The red velvet cake is good, but I prefer other flavors. The frosting however, you could put it on sawdust and it was still be quite yummy.

Looking forward to seeing what we try next.

September Happenings


yep that is about it....all the happening so far this month. Kevin is taking two classes this term, so weekends he does homework. I am about to start up my 2nd job again and work is as busy as ever.

We are looking forward to our cousin Matt to visit next week, so stay tuned for details...

I kicked our tenet out

No, I didn't kick my parents out.....they are allowed to stay (for now...just kidding mom)

Today Kevin was down in the basement in the unfinished area doing some computer work, and as he was leaving he found this:
A baby bull snake....not sure how he got in the house (but I suspect he doesn't need much space). Kevin placed him carefully out in the field. I am sure he will be happier there.
