I finished last week!! I folded down some pages, so I'll have to share the quotes I liked with you sometime. I'm glad that Anne was a friend on the flight :)

I am thankful for you, Friend! God has and is doing a fun and wonderful new thing here in Colorado for me...bringing friends like Joanne, whom He knew I needed.

I am praying for you and Toben to have wonderful time together, Friend!
with love,

Have fun in Phoenix! I love the Scottsdale area -- such good shopping!

Thank you for your prayers. I got the job offer this afternoon -- I need to make a decision by Monday.


Have fun! Reading is an awesome hobby and it's nice to know that you enjoy it. I've been wanting to read so many books. I still have a thing for Enid Blyton books :) But right now, I've got to work on my exams. The books have to wait. Oh well.

Enjoy your trip! And God bless you!

Mmmmm...Anne. This winter, I plan to curl up with a blanket, a mug of something hot, and Anne-girl, and spend lots of hours reading through the whole series again. I inherited the set from Gabe's grandma. She loved Anne (called her Annie) even more than me. Have a great week!

Spy Video ATV

hi. i love your site, i came across it looking for something else, but i love your stories and photos! are you from colorado? i noticed the bit on the elk, estes park, etc. i am so it piqued my interest, but i enjoyed your article and photos. looks like a great time by all :)

i was searching for the spy video atv on your site, because it came up when i searched for it, but i can't find any content on it..?? did you write anything about it here?

well, if you did you probably know all about it, but i'll add my two bits anyway! i'd gotten the spy video atv for my grandson and that's all he played with once he got the hang of it. I was a hit! it's been a 2009 best seller, and is on the Christmas 2009 best seller list. they currently have it on sale for $40 off, but they say it'll be out of stock on 12/9, so if you want to get one as a Christmas gift for boys [or girls] i'd grab it now.

it's an Awesome remote controlled atv with a 'spy' camera, 360 degree view, and the kids love to 'spy' on their brothers, sisters or parents :), and they can hear the sound through their headset and watch where the atv is remotely on the video screen. it's really cool! it climbs, some say you can use it form one level to another, and some even talked about through brick walls! anyway, if you've heard about it, it's probably not new news, but if you haven't, you should check it out if you wanna get a Great Christmas gift or birthday gift. it's for kids 7 yrs and up. pretty cool!

anyway, regardless of whether you have anything on the spy video atv, i still enjoyed your site and am glad i 'happened' upon it. Thx :)
