Happy New Year!

For New Year's Eve we had people over at our house: Laurie, Tristan, Kathy, Lorrie, Liz, Randy, Shawn, and myself. We had a bonfire and rode the 4 wheeler - spinning all over. We had chicken wings, Shrimp scampi (I made it for the first time ever). It was a lot of fun!

On New Year's Day we had (for Eveleth Horizons) a grand opening of a sliding hill. It was a lot of fun. There was a lot of work done by many people to make the event happen. Citizens wanted a sliding hill, the parks commission wanted a sliding hill and the City supported it. What an asset to the city....

Laurie and Tristan....

Tristan bundled up....

We had a snowmaking contest....
"The old snowman on the mountain"

Not sure of the name for this one....


"Samantha" the Hula snowgirl
Anyone want to come up and hit the sliding hill?
What did others do for New Years? Dave and Jody - did you have your annual New Year's party?
Wishing everyone the best in 2008 - May you find peace and health in the year ahead!

What an accomplishment. The snowmen are awesome. Anxious to
see more about the hill.

At the Manor we sang some songs and
ordered pizza for 9:15. Some of us
stayed up until midnight! dk
