Our Europe Honeymoon

I know I know I know, its been almost 2 months since we got back, but here they finally are!!! To fill in some of you, we went on our honeymoon in November for 3 great weeks. We started in Spain, going where ever the wind blew us, then went to visit a friend on the island of Cyprus, then headed over to Italy to meet up with some friends there. It was amazing and can't wait to go back to explore all of what Europe has to offer!

Our new house

A lot of far away friends have been wanting to see pictures of our house we just bought in Boulder. And, since we are beginning our TOTAL kitchen remodel on Monday, we thought we'd show you what it looks like before. These pictures were taken during our inspection back in October, so it still wasn't ours then...and we've done some things already. So we'll have to post more pictures later. But here's an idea of what it looks like. Look for updated Kitchen pictures in about a week!

Our new house!

Xmas 2008

For this year's holiday, we were so happy to have Ben's parents come up with us to my parents house in Nebraska for some good relaxing holiday time!

Here we are at my grandparents house having our (the Reed side) traditional Christmas Eve dinner of chili and oyster soup. Then we all gathered for a Kriederman tradition of a group "7 & 7" drink!

Four generations, minus my sister. My grandma to the right, then my mom holding her granddaughter Kayla.
We brought the dogs up to play on the 40 acres with my parents new dog shadow. They had so much fun they almost died!!! - basically they found some rat poison that they thought would be delicious. Luckily we caught them and poured some peroxide down their throats so they would puke it up, it worked!!!
