Here's a house carved into the canyon rock wall, on the way out of Justin's mom and dad's house. its actually on the national historic register.
Here's a bunch of wild turkeys that we saw on the way out of their house friday. There was about 20-30 of them. We didnt' get to see the Tom, but we saw a bunch of hens.

Talatha and her kids Mariah, Wade, and Cordell.
All of us together right before we all left for town.
Here's the rock house again.

Its blurry, but it was such a cool picture, even blurry.
Mom with her new Christmas cocoa mugs
Here's the cool gift we got for Christmas, it was a movie, a popcorn/candy pack, and a blue blanket.
I retook the pic of Justin and his dad
Me and Justin posing for the camera.
Here's Justin's dad, Earl.
His mom - Ruthie
yours truly, sans make-up, Talatha (Justin's youngest sister is in the background)
Father and son naptime, each has a dog in their lap too. It was so funny.
here's a close up of Justin napping

Here's some more pictures from our trip. These first ones are from a portion of the ladder ranch, it was the old saloon, hotel, and livery type place. We went over here one day to feed some mules that are being housed on the property.

Just some of the land on the ranch.
Part of the saloon/hotel thing.
Here's the door of the hotel, it says rooms 50 cents. I thought that was pretty cool.

Here's my and Alli. She's a total sweetheart. Jed was trying to get pictures of us together, but she's got a lot of energy and was hard to pin down. It was really fun. She's great. Right after this she started riding her "pony" that was purple and names "Him". It was pretty funny.

Part of the drive to Truth or Consequences.
Just a cool part of the road.

Cool 5000 sq. foot house carved into the rock wall.

Grandpa and Grandma Whisler

Just wanted to post a few pictures from helping with the Christmas lights. :)

Hogle Zoo

We had a lot of fun at Hogle Zoo, we both love zoos, so we got up early one morning and headed to the zoo. It was really fun. Most of the animals were out and about, even though it was winter, we still got to see almost everything. Except the giraffes, which was a bummer, but they're pen was under construction, so no giraffes. :)
The cutest cat
Wouldn't you love to have a cat that looked like this? He was so cute! I love the colored bands around his front legs.
One elephant eating breakfast off to the side
2 elephants eating breakfast together
Lone elephant stockpiling hay, after the other two ate all their hay. :) This was so cute, as the other 2 ran low on hay, this elephant started stockpiling his hay between tusk and trunk, then when he got both sides full, he walked a ways off to eat in peace. It was really funny.
Here's the beautiful red panda. It was so pretty, and elegant. it was one of my favorite animals.
Really cool lynx cat (there were 3 in the pen). There was a desert sheep up the hill from these guys, the only "prey" in that part of the zoo, and when the sheep got bored, he started walking around beating his head/horns again fence posts, which drove the cats nuts! They started pacing around, and sniffing the air coming from his direction. It was pretty cool, every time he's bash his head, they'd growl low, and pace faster.
