2006

We are here for the long haul! Jeremy is now a member of the faculty at the University of Colorado, Boulder (way to go, Jeremy!). We absolutely love living in Colorado. We look forward to the coming year with anticipation and look upon the past year with remembrance. Jeremy and I invite you to view some of our photos from 2006.

Our home.
[humble abode in our favorite weather: gentle snow]

We pinch ourselves every morning we look out the windows.

Chinese New Year was early this year.

Jeremy and I picked up telemark skiing at the start of the year. Muy divertido!

We ventured into the Indian Peaks Wilderness for some springtime fun.

In April, we visited with Steve, Ben, and Emily. Mom and Dad came out to celebrate Emily’s birthday too.

Even in spring, we can never get enough winter.

But when Colorado does thaw out for summer, it is spectacular.

Our kitchen was busy the entire year with various projects including baked goods and confections.

We celebrated Jeremy’s parents’ 35th anniversary in July.

On the way home, Jeremy and I stopped by Crested Butte, the Wildflower capital of Colorado.

Autumn was a welcome relief from the heat of our summer days.

But our fall colors were short-lived with the arrival of several early season snowfalls.

My grandma turned 85 in October. Her four daughters hosted a wonderful banquet in California for friends and family to celebrate.
[beautiful women: grandma, my mom, and my aunts]

Remember all of that early season snowfall? It’s tele season again…

As always, we wish you, our friends and families, every happiness for the coming year. Health, Happiness, Good Fortune, and Good Luck.

with love,
Jennifer, Jeremy, and Kaweah
