~Snow Day 1/1/2010~

The Conrad family has a lot of fun traditions! New Year's day happens to be one of them.

Every New Year's we all head up to the Ranch for a SNOW day ! We all have so much fun tubing, sledding, snowmobiling, 4 wheeling & just playing in the snow !

Everyone brings food to munch on. Dad always has a toasty fire going & Mom always has some hot cocoa and hot food going up at the house. So nice & cozy after hours of fun in the cold snow.

Matt and I are still sore a few days later!Great fun was had by all !
We are so blessed with such a beautiful place our family can enjoy together !

We wish you all a wonderful 2010 !

Farewell 2009.....

We decided last minute to have a New Years celebration. It was a good time to get together with our families.

We had some great food, fun games, good times talking and some relaxed in the hot tub. Matt and I are so grateful for our families. We are blessed beyond measure! Unfortunately we did not get a picture of everyone. Thank you to all that came ! Loves!

Now on to New Years resolutions for 2010.... Some fail some succeed. I'm happy to say Matt and I reached a few of our goals. Better health in particular.

Together in 2009 we said goodbye to 100 pounds of fat ! I say that is something to be proud of :D May we continue this practice throughout our lives and keep it going ! Let's be Hot & Happy & Healthy in 2010 !

Im so proud of you Matty ! I LOVE you !
