Happy New Year one and all!!! Well as we all know it is 2008, wow, where does the time go??? Hope all had as good a New Years holiday as we did!!! We (Sheryl and I) actually dad 3 days off together and over the holiday to boot! Sunday Sheryl and the girls went down to Lubbock TX and did the girl thing, the Mall and Shopping, what I hung here and just had a relaxing day. The girls made it back and it was off to dinner, one last night out together before Kaileigh headed back to OKC the next morning.
New Years Eve was spent just putzing around the house together and getting things done (darn, don't you hate when real life pops into your However New Years eve evening was spent with our good friends and next door neighbors, Brandon and Julie. We had a great time of football and games before ringing in the new year, we toasted one and all, before us old farts had to head home and off to bed.
The following morning (ok, noon to be exact) we joined the Jeep Club at the Canadian river for a day of four wheeling and fun. Approximately 25 jeeps were there as well as a few other folks who had joined in for the fun. The day was spent wheeling most of the area, while stopping for the more hard core wheelers to take on the more extreme areas and obstacles.

A couple of shots of the more extreme areas (pictures really don't do the terrain justice) deep washouts and 4-5 foot rock faces for the more ambitious folks. Some made it look easy and some, well let's just say..........didn' Our friend Clint in the yellow jeep (yup the one on it's side) won the glorious honor of the cow bell (must wear it to all jeep club events) for being the first one to roll his jeep since the last lucky fellow.

After the festivities at the river we met some fellow jeepers at the Texas Roadhouse restaurant for dinner and more good times, before heading home. All in all what a great New Years, spent with family, and friend, new and old. Yet anther reason we have to be thankful and love our life. Hope you had as good a holiday as we did, so once again Happy New Year to all.
