Scenic Sunday Drive

We decided to go on a beautiful scenic drive today.
We headed up to Estes Park, then took a scenic byway
down to Black Hawk. We basically cruised down the east
side of the Rocky Mountain National Park.

We even got to stop in and visit Uncle Gary and Mary.

The Quick Family Goes to Colorado

Well, we have decided to relocate. Probably the single craziest idea we've ever had, yet strongly felt to be a great choice for our family. Leaving our loved ones behind is the hardest thing I have ever done, but God continues to instill the feeling of complete peace with this decision. We are currently renting a house in Brush, CO. Brush is about 100 miles northeast of Denver. Keith accepted a job with Crop Production Services in Fort Morgan, which is about 6 miles away. We hope to be further west toward the mountains in the near future, but for now are very thankful for a clean house available to us and accepting of our 2 dogs and 2 cats in the meantime.

Poor Sami

Sami, Sami, Sami!
Our poor puppy got herself into some trouble.
We think she was chasing mice in the barn and got
caught under the field cultivator that is stored out there.
The vet said she essentially stabbed herself, having
and entrance and exit wound.
She got herself loose and came running out.

We did end up taking her to the animal medical center.
He said she definitely needed stitched up.
However, white getting in there to clean and stitch her,
he found a tunnel from her injury.
He had to clean out a lot of infected tissue.
She has drainage tubes in the wounded area
to get the rest of the infection out while her stitches
are healing. She will be able to get the tubes out soon,
and the stitches out in 1 weeks,
but in the meantime is wearing the 
"cone of shame."

My poor Sami is just pitiful!

Overall, she is doing well with it though.
She still has some spunk and doesn't like not
being where the action is.

Welcome 2014!

Well, in case you haven't noticed, I have
fallen WAY behind on my blogs.
I am determined to be more on top of that
so that our friends & family can enjoy keeping up
with us.

So let's start off 2014.
And to welcome the new year, I'd like
to share my new ride.

In December, the transmission in my
van decided it was completely done.  It was
a very long month having to borrow a vehicle 
to get things taken care of, but I 
was lucky enough to be able to.

It may not be "new," however
it is new to us.
And it is filled with awesome options
for all of us to enjoy.

Soon I will share some new
pics of the kiddos for you to enjoy.

The Quicks are ready for summer!!!

So much for catching up, huh?! LOL
All I can say is it is really a
tough job being so good at
procrastinating! heehee

The biggest change around here
is that Keith is now done working
second shift!!! YAY!!!
It was so difficult for all of us!
He has always been such a hands-on
daddy, and he had to miss so
many school events, t-ball, baseball,
softball, basketball, volleyball games,
track meets, and just all around
so much of our family life the
last year and a half!
It is so good to have him back
with us in the evenings and
enjoying the kids' stuff!

The other big news is that we
now have a high schooler in the
family. Ali went through her
8th grade promotion in May.  It
seems like only last week that
she was learning to walk and talk.
Now you won't often find her
without and event or sport she is
getting ready to go to.
And she definitely has a VAST
vocabulary that she shares
with us QUITE often! LOL
Yep, she's a talker like her momma! :)

Here are some pics from her graduation.

The nails MUST match the dress, right?!

Ali wanted me to make her cake
"Her" rather than school colors.
This is the "her" that I came up with.

This was Ali's display board at
their community graduation party.

Busy December already!

Ali's birthday started off our busy December.
Of course, the birthday girl is showing off her new sock monkey hat! LOL
She got a new softball glove for her birthday.
