Snowed in Colorado Style

As if having a White Christmas wasn’t wonderful enough, we are now trapped in Colorado Springs due to what the media is now calling “The Holiday Blizzard of ’06… Part Two!” I know many of you feel our pain and suffering, especially our friends back home in wet Chicago. Please remember us in your prayers… our next flight is scheduled for Saturday when the “Part Three” of this blizzard is being predicted after a projected break tomorrow. Seems we may end up beginning the New Year still trapped in Colorado. Here are some of the pictures I took this morning. Enjoy the VIDEO at the end for even more. BONUS: All pictures in this post can be clicked on for much larger resolutions. You can see just how miserable I am. Poor me. As soon as the snow started falling, my dad got me out of bed and we headed out to take pictures. Our destination was a local park called Palmer Park, a surprising large park in the heart of Colorado Springs. It has three separate entrances, none of which intersec to prevent through traffic. In the picture above you can see across the valley that divides the two …

No Need to Dream, White Christmas is Here!

I’m not dreaming of a White Christmas, because a White Christmas is HERE! Officially named the “Holiday Blizzard of ’06″ by the news media, snow has arrived here in Colorado. (And I hear it is raining in Chicago, my poor friends and family) So I decided to go for a nice snowy walk this morning… These people are in for a surprise when they come out their front door or try to pull out of the garage!The snow is pretty deep in some places, even an SUV would risk getting stuck! I even spotted some wild life! and dared to approach! The wolf with its prey, a flattened basketball! He looked hungry, so I slowly moved on. Here are my feet in the snow, almost up to my knees! The holes my feet left to see how deep it is! Hard to tell? I tossed my gloves down the holes to show the depth of the snow. Having fun with colors, reminds me of the song, “I’ll have a blue Christmas….” Just another picture from my walk. MERRY CHRISTMAS! from Karl, Sara and Luke

God’s Favorite State

With the exception of Yosemite and Alaska*, Colorado is my favorite place on earth. (Yosemite and Alaska each go in their own category as there is no comparing to either of them!) So we are enjoying Christmas in Colorado Springs, and a White Christmas at that! Took this picture out the window of van while driving, and used Mac to touch up. (um, yeah added words too, they weren’t already in the sky!) Luke, keeping warm in chilly Colorado. Luke, still working on his crawling. He has backwards down, still working on forward! Went out to dinner, showed Luke how yummy Cheerios are! Historic Moment: Luke has his FIRST CHEERIO! Soon he is downing a whole little bowl, down on the floor that is. Gave Luke an orange thinking he would recoil, instead, he loved it and chomped on it! Luke’s favorite dinner game, peek-a-boo, or “Help Keep America Looking Beautiful” Just a cute picture of baby sleeping…. before… and after! It’s was a beautiful thing… Mountain Dew in a Frosty Mug! WOW! Discovered A&W carries MD, so I asked if I could have it in a frozen mug, they said no one ever asked for that before…. a new …

Grown Men Acting Like Kids

Today I visited my friend Pastor Andy’s church in Aurora, Colorado. About two years ago, Andy was a kids pastor at a church just 12 miles from my previous church and we were just gettin’ to become good friends when he up and moved to the gorgeous state of Colorado. So as I am visiting my dad and his wife for Christmas, I thought I’d trek on over and visit Pastor Andy at his new church today. I plan to write more about my visit with Pastor Andy soon, but I just HAD to post a short ONE MINUTE video of the highlight of the morning… Pastor Andy has a 70 foot GIANT inflatable jungle race in his Kids Church room that is a blast. After watching the kids enjoy it for awhile, I couldn’t take it any longer… I had to CHALLENGE PASTOR ANDY TO A RACE! The winner would gain eternal fame on my blog…. WHO WON? Watch the video and find out for yourself! Andy-vs-Karl.mov (5.7MB) FINE PRINT: Andy also cheated, but his wife who was filming, had already headed to the finish line to catch us coming over the top of the final slide and missed …
