My pops turned 60

on the 27th! Dan and I had him over to open gifts. I made him a birthday shirt that was mandatory for him to wear out to our planned evening events. So after gifts we took him out to Troxels, a new steak house in town that it delicious and fairly priced. After dinner we went to the movie 2012, birthday boy pick. Its was a good night and my pop said he had a really great time! I love him!
One bonus of turning 60, on Thursday nights he can now eat off of the senior menu at the Broiler. ha.

I love

this chair.

Today was a beautiful day

on the mountain. I have hiked up a handful of times this weekend and have earned some pretty sick turns. Some of the nicest I have had. Its nice to enjoy the area without a ton of people there. Although the mountain is getting pretty tracked up and sloppy. Some wind and snow would be welcome up there to make things better. It'll happen though! They are planning to open a week earlier than originally planned. I heard a rumor it was only for weekends until December 18thm if that is the case I will be greatly disappointed. I only bought a weekday seasons pass. It cost me nearly $400 for that and if they only open for weekends until December 18th, well, that means I am getting screwed out of a pretty good amount of days. I hope it all works out.
These are some pictures I managed to capture with my iPhone camera, on the mountain today!

I love snow, it is the thing I love most from this planet. If it could snow light fluffy snow everyday for the rest of my life I would be the happiest person on this planet. Anyway, its snowed so much this past week. I have been taking advantage of it by hiking up the mountain and snowboarding down! Most amazing fluffy powder ever.

isn't he.


The Kitchen.....gutted....I finally got around to posting these pictures. Since these have been taken a lot has been done. Currently we are in the process of moving in, slowly. We are at the point where all the stuff at the old place is odd and ends. I'm wondering why we even own any of it. I am also slowly finding new places for everything and am currently amazing that we fit all of our stuff into our tiny old place. Ill post more pictures soon.
