When Brent came in to say good bye, I said, "I think I felt an earthquake, did you feel anything?" To which Brent said, with a chuckle in his voice, "No, you must have been dreaming." Maybe...
After I got up for the day, the phone rang and it was Brent. "Just wanted to let you know that you're not crazy." There was an earthquake! It was about 4.5 magnitude and centered in Kingston, which is 30 miles north of here. Hah! I knew I wasn't sleeping.
That makes two earthquakes that I have felt and, surprisingly enough, I felt both when I was in bed. Coincidence...well, probably.
I didn't know how far away this earthquake would be reported on the news, so I thought I'd share my story of earthquake #2 and tell you all that it was a very small earthquake and there is no damage, just a lot of people being woken up.
Have a great day!

I have to do many inventive things to get Brent in pictures. I'm pretty proud of myself for thinking of this one!
Then off to the zoo. I must admit, it's kind of hard to find in the dark. Apparently, we need to go there more often. We did finally find it though. And this is what we found....
Ahhhhhh.... If you ask me, Christmas lights are almost better than fireworks. They're not as noisy or smelly. :)
And to prove that we really were there....
Brent had the camera set to take three pictures in a row, so we held up some people as they were walking along. Oops.
Well, I would definitely recommend going to a zoo near you if they mention that they are doing zoo lights. It's well worth the time! We're making this a yearly tradition.
Thanks again Julie!

It was a fun morning. We also got to talk to most of our family using Skype. It's so nice to be able to not only talk, but see each other while we talk. Thanks Julie!!
Christmas night was spent with a bunch of friends. It was great having a full house. Brent made a fabulous dinner of ham, potatoes and rolls. I made the pistachio salad. Yeah me!
This is Aaron. Funny face, huh?
And here is what Kyle wanted to wear to Christmas dinner. Silliness.
This was taken after the first snow storm. Soon after this we decided we should probably clear off the deck...we don't know if it's rated for so much snow.Since we don't even own a snow shovel...still need to get one...this is what we used. Well, that and a big old broom and a regular shovel. We would have made millions if we owned a snow blower!That's pretty much it. Julie did suggest we go out and take some pictures. That will be the next post!
Have a great day!
