New Years Celebration 2011

This year to welcome in the new year we invited Troy and his girls and the Garricks to come and celebrate. Of course we invited Kye and Kamis families but unfortuantly they had other plans.
So we started the evening just chillin letting the kids play. Then we got out some games, we played poker, Mad Gab, and the shocker game. Then we set off some fireworks and gave away our first kisses of the year. Then at 2:30 we hit the sack hoping to be able to sleep in!
After sleeping in till about 11:00 we cleaned the house then headed to Tangled with the Covingtons for our traditional movie on the 1st. This year Grandpa paid for everyone and made reservations for seats at Thanksgiving Point. Man he is always going the extra mile to make things so nice for everyone. Thanks mom and dad we love you tons and tons. Happy New Year everyone we wish you the best this next year.

Ice Fishing Fighting the Blues

Here's the skinny we are getting ready to send Terry back to work. Yes he got a job only 9 miles away from home which is good news, however, it has crappy insurance is the bad news, its fun work good news, but less pay bad news. So since he has to go back with very few days off we headed to Strawberry to get out of the house and enjoy some outdoor fresh air.
Strawberry Bay Marina at 2 p.m. 25 degrees on Monday the 28th. Heavy snow at few spots on snowpacked road to the marina. More snow now than I saw most of the year last year. Looked like the whole lake was froze over.
Drove back to Mud Creek for the thicker one inch top ice with 8 inch slush and 4 inch bottom layer ice. Six other groups on the ice. Two poles with white tube jig and night crawler at 1' off bottom at 14'.
Two fish, one 14" rainbow at 2:45 p.m. and a 10 inch rainbow at 4:15 p.m. We were the last group off the ice at 5 p.m. and 10 degrees. Kids had fun sledding.
