Tis the season,

So Christmas is over and this Holiday season was a whirlwind. We started out by going on a red eye flight to JFK airport and from there off to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic with Eric's Olson fam. We had a blast there. Hung out at the beach and the pool and enjoyed some wonderful weather. The best part? Being around family that we don't see so much since the move to Scottsie.

After 5 days of soaking in the sun we were off to our new destination, Salt Lake City. We arrived in the SLC late on Christmas eve, had a wonderful Christmas then approximately 48 after landing in we were off again. Time to head home.

It was a crazy holiday season filled with a lot of flying but we had such an awesome time and we were so happy to spend so much time with our family.

The only downside to this Holiday Season? No KARL!

T.G.I.F.P.T.P. (Thanks Goodness I Finally Posted Thanksgiving Pictures)

Better late than never, right? Being that it is almost Christmas, I thought I would finally post some Thanksgiving pictures.

So here we are, Thanksgiving 2011-Salt Lake City, Utah

Thanksgiving morning, pre-cooking with Karl, Maggie, Abbey and Sofie.

I am the Shepard and Karl is my sheep.

Becks with her first grandson Karl.

Eric (looking like he just got up), Me, Dev and Uncle Kent about to enjoy TG dinner.

Family portrait (doesn't Karl look great in his bow tie from H & M).

Lil' Sissy Abbey relaxing after a long day of eating.

Later that week, going to our Salt Lake fav Red Iguana for a machaca chimichanga.

So to wrap it up, thanksgiving was great. I loved spending time with family in Utah.
This week were off to spend more time with family, but this time in The Dominican Republic.
So as they say down south and in the Terminator, hasta la vista!

Two weeks ago

So thanksgiving was two weeks ago and what a wonderful time it was. I will blog some pics of the actual day soon but for now I am going to post a few images from the drive, which, while long (10 Hours) and incredibly boring (listening to football) did offer a few lovely scenes that I captured.

Karl sitting on drivers lap, his favorite spot in the car.

Sun going down, somewhere in Nevada.

Amazing sunset, look at those colors (will stop there because I am dangerously close to sounding like Double Rainbow Guy).
