Snowshoeing with Berkley

We finally got out to do some snowshoeing this weekend -- we got snowshoes for Christmas and booties for Berkley! Berkley LOVED it -- lets just say it's his new favorite sport. And he's so cute in his booties.

New Years with Todd & Tara

Our first stop...New Belgium Brewing Co. in Fort Collins, CO.
We went on a tour of the brewery, and were able to learn a lot about this company, and it's lager. We even got to sample some tasty brews.

I didn't know a beer "prayer" existed, but apprantly one does. Silly beer humor.

Todd & Bryan


Bryan -- looking crazed, emphasis on looking, those are all of the tables samples combined!



Tara even tried some...




My two favorites





Then on to the capitol building. Here are Bryan & Todd mimicing the statue behind them.


For New Years, we were going to go to Breckenridge in the mountains, to ski and enjoy a cozy New Years, BUT the roads were closed. We made the best of it and cooked a feast of crab and tenderloin paired with a few choice bottles of wine.


Eating out...at Hacienda Colorado. Todd claims it was one of the best burritos he's ever had.



The four of us at Lucilles, one of my favorite breakfast spots, in my favorite little town, Boulder.




In Boulder, at the foot of the Flatirons (Chataqua trail). Beautiful mountains -- and a classic pic'.


Megan & Tara looking back over Boulder.

We had so much fun with the Appleby's here. It was great to catch up, and show off our home to more CA friends. There's a lot more to see, so we hope you come back!

A Montana Christmas

Close Family Christmas...
We had a cozy little Close Christmas this year, my bubba, Ryan, made it home and the five of us celebrated. We had a cajun shrimp dinner for Christmas Eve after Church. I made a vanilla souffle this year (one of B & my traditions). We played lots of games, and hung out. We even caught a few Christmas movies..it was very relaxing and good restfulness with the fam.

Christmas Day dinner at Nana & Papa Kreitzberg's
For Christmas dinner we went to Nana & Papa's. Nana always cooks the most AMAZING meals! She made this cauliflower & broccoli casserole that was to die for, and I don't normally like either of those veggies! Nana & Pops always make us feel so at home!

Lisa & Bryan on Mom's lap...not as comfy as it used to be!

Barta family Christmas Eve:
For Christmas Eve all the Barta's meet at Grandpa & Grandma's we have turkey dinner and open gifts together...we always have a lot of laughs. It's fun to see everyone, since this is usually one of the only times each year we get to do that!
