While I am watching the news tonight, I see snow is predicted for this part of Texas. But it won’t be the first snow I’ve seen lately. We were fortunate enough to spend Christmas in Telluride, Colorado with our daughter’s family. Her in-laws actually own a home there and they invited us all up for a wonderful vacation. It was beautiful and very cold. Telluride is a scenic little town nestled in amongst those lovely mountains.

Reid and Caroline were glad that Santa Claus found us there!
Fortunately, once we arrived, we didn’t have to drive around in the snow. The gondola to take you up the mountain is located a block from their home and you could walk anywhere else you needed to go.

Many thanks to our generous hosts, Brenda, Paul and Missy.
Some skied, but we all enjoyed good food, card games and, of course, our babygrands!
Caroline just wanted to play inside. Reid had never seen that much snow.
I had to have a souvenir from Telluride. There were a few little antique stores downtown. They were really expensive. But I did find these pretty silver napkin rings for a decent price.
And lo and behold, they were engraved.
Can you see it? It says Tom. Awww, my hubby’s name.
As for the other one…..well, you can just call me….
I really appreciated my hubby’s driving ability in getting us safely to Telluride. It was scary in the snowstorm! Thanks, Gumby!
Yep, they are predicting 5” of snow here tomorrow. We don’t handle snow and ice too well here. I really don’t want to be driving around in it. And there certainly is no gondola a block from the house!
