Best kind of repeats – PARADE repeats during the holidays.  Been 5 years.  How is that possible?

Everything Downtown decked in holiday colour, queued early for our town’s Lights parade at 7pm.  Fire Department always leads the annual array of floats.  Baton twirlers, carolers, Santa, Frosty & Native Americans too.  Not to mention ‘Bones’, the town’s Christmas dinosaur.  Every town has a Christmas dinosaur, right?  LOL>

GREAT way to kick off the Christmas season!  LOVE LOVE my Colorado hometown 🙂



Parade of Lights 2017



Thanksgiving decorations make a quick exit & Santa explodes in the living room.

Hey, hey it’s tinsel time.  Time of good cheer.

Fa-la-la-la-la, ‘tis the season to be jolly.

Annual migration of wildlife – not Santa’s reindeer but mule deer & Canadian geese.  HUGE flocks of geese, seasonal locals once again. Guess even snowy Colorado is ‘summer’ pilgrimage for some.  LOL>

Wrap your presents, send out cards.  It’s the hap-happiest time of the year ♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ♭ ♮ ♯

afternoon preview – YUM!


2017 – another year of thanks!

but first, made room for turkey with an ABSOLUTELY FREE 5K in my hometown.  Four years ago, ran this event – super happy to be back!  This year, drug along Stephen (here on a holiday visit).  Whatta sport.  Prep time?  None.

Walk, run, got it done – AND with a smile on our face.

May have found my new run partner.  LOL>


Warm breezy walk with Ro ‘round Waneka.  Plenty of time for Thanksgiving prep.  Feasting & football at 1pm, Ash & Tom’s in Westminster.  Our Colorado tradition ❤
