My wonderful in-laws bought a Cricut machine for me for Christmas. Yesterday I was finally able to experiment with it. I still need to do some more trial and error, but these three cards are what I came up with. I wasn't feeling very creative, more intrigued by the machine. I had a lot of fun, and I won't tell you how much time passed while making 3 cards. Thanks Mom2 and Dad2!

This is the Nature Center at Hunstville State Park. Because it is Christmas, it wasn't open. It looked pretty cool on the inside, and I wish we could have gone in.
Here's James riding over alligator alley, even though we didn't see any alligators. Probably just as well since I had a dream the night before that I got attacked by an alligator.
Look at my professional mountain bike riding skills. What an amazing feat! Yeah right! I had a great time though. There are a lot of tree roots that we had to ride over. I decided that since I couldn't run (because of my bum ankle), that I was going to completely let loose mountain biking today. It paid off because I felt a lot more comfortable and had an awesome time.

Fancy was absolutely determined to get on the couch the other night. There was no room for her, or so James and I thought. She literally jumped up and squeezed into the tiniest of places. She ended up laying in this weird hunchback position and actually stayed there for over an hour until Kramer moved.

Here I am at the start of the run, freezing my rear off! Someone told me it was in the high 20s when we started out. Talk about cold.
I'm the third one from the end. This was the very start of the trail. We all kind of left at the same time and then I caught up to the people in front (you can't see them). You also get your only glimpse of James as his shadow is prominently displayed at the bottom. He's so wonderful!
I don't even know where this is, but since I'm still wearing the pants and the jacket I know it was on the first loop.
I think this is one of the hills that I had to run down once and up once. I am directionally challenged so it is difficult for me to know where I was at what point. James was a real trooper today. He was riding his mountain bike up and down a bunch of these hills trying to guess where I was going to be in order to get pictures. He is just as sore as I am today!
Here I am after the run. I felt really good and was very proud of myself. I was actually in the front of the pack group, when I was sure I was going to be bringing up the rear. Granted a lot of people ran further than I did, but for never having run that distance, I think I did pretty good.
