Last week we went to Creede for a Branch Party. I couldn't help but notice how beautiful the mountains are right now. It seems that Mother Nature skips us during spring and summer, but saves her best for fall. The aspen are always bright and remind me that we do live in a wonderful part of the country. Today I looked up behind the house and saw the first snow of the year on Bennett Peak. A new reminder that something else is in the air-Winter!!!

Over the years, our family has enjoyed going to Denver to see the Broncos play. Terry has always been a die-hard fan. So much so, that he proposed to me when they lost in the super bowl in 1978. Jerry and Oma Jean had season tickets for many years and when they decided they didn't want them any more, we jumped at the chance to get them. Our seats used to be in the nose bleed section of Invesco, but last year we had a chance for a seat improvement. We were moved to the first level, sec. 100 row 14. We really enjoy going to the games. It is a great time for Terry to relax and get up close and personal. Yesterday's game was a real barn-burner. The Broncos won 39-38 over the San Deigo Chargers. the first home game is always special, because they have a fly-over from Fort Carson in Colorado Springs. This year it was a stealth bomber. The only sad thing about this year is that Devin, who was going to go with us, was called to work the clean-up of Hurricane Ike in Texas.

This past summer we had a very special houseguest. Jenny Kvarics came from Berlin, Germany to stay. She was a foreign exchange student at Del Norte High School in 2007. We loved having her live with us for the short time she was here. She brought a wonderful, vivacious spirit into our home and she bakes a mean cookie too. Jenny came this summer to visit and SHOP!!! That is one thing I never got to do with the boys, they never wanted to do that. She has one more year of High School left in Germany, and then she is planning to go to Hotel Management School. She speaks German, English, French, and tried Spanish while she was here. She can't seem to get enough of Mexican food, burritos are one of her favorites, and Dairy Queen Blizzards-OREO- were on the top of her to-do list while she was here. She's really a pretty good driver, it was nice to have a chauffeur.
We had a great time with you, Jennifer Jacqueline-we wish you the best and love you very much.
