Merry Christmas!

Our cutesy tree ^_^

And we made sugar cookies and the girls had a blast decorating all 6 Dz

My happy little girl :)

 and we got lots of snow (sry its sideways but blogger refuse to load it any other way)
they both got video cameras as well thx to nana! And yes they are the ones that can be dropped and not break so yay!

And i got them both there very own sewing kits full of supplies. I just love Kileys face in the above pic, priceless!

Kiley has been begging for a blond ken doll for a long time stating that her girls need a man. This guy came from the "we only send presents on bday and xmas and have no other contact with my grandkids" oma and opa in TX. Kiley promptly said she hates him as he reminds her of that little girl Justin Bieber. So I will have to see about getting her a proper ken doll lol

And this was my gift ^_^ My mom got me a gift card to Bath and Body works. I can't say enough how much i absolutely LOVE B&BW! Anyways they had there annual 75% off sale and i got to pick up 20 new items for myself ^_^

The stitching bug found me a few days ago after i browsed through a few fellow stitching blogs and saw all the pretty stitching ^_^ So for the past 2 days I've been stitching on My Lady of The Snow. See all the green highlighter? That's what i have stitched in my chances to sit. Its had to be nearly 2 years since i have worked on her so it feels good to pick her back up again ^_^

The Royal Gorge

Today my dear friend got in there bright mind that we should drive to Canon City and see the Royal Gorge and even cross the bridge! And me having a giant fear of heights said "OK" Ikr? Absolutely crazy! this thing is like 1/2 mile walk and 1,000 feet over the Arkansas River! But he grabbed my hand and dealt and i think enjoyed my fear as i squeezed his hand and winced at every creak the boards made. yes those are wood boards! You can walk or drive over the bridge. My friend took pity on me and we walked over it 3 times! we walked across once and realized the only way back was to go back across. Then we took the air tram (little red box that goes across on wires) across the gorge. I just about fainted just getting into it and since we were the only ones there we got the box and the conductor to ourselves! So we picked his brain as it went. It wasn't as bad as i thought really. Then we walked the nature path that lead to the opposite side of the bridge hence we had to go across it a 3rd time. It's worse walking across while a car is driving over as you can actually feel the bridge bouncing and moving! At that point i practically ran to the other side of the bridge. Yes i was scared even though i was assured by many that's its completely safe. They also had a zip line across it! Thankfully they were doing maintenance on it so i was spared. In the picture above you can see the wires for the zip line, i swear its longer than the bridge itself. The park also had para sailing but as that is only offered on Saturdays and we went on a Friday i was spared that treacherous fear as well. My friend was determined he could get me over my fear of heights/falling. I glared at him in disgust but truly he is the only one that could have gotten me to go to such a place and I know he would never allow any real harm to come to me ^_^
This is the view of the Arkansas River from the right side of the bridge. We took an incline train thing to the bottom so we got to be like 5 feet from the River where the fences blocked us from getting any closer. You could also see where the old train from the 1800's ran and the wall was blackened. I wish i coulda taken a picture but my phone was dying and one more picture would have made it die.
