In a Nutshell

Good Morning. I just feel good today. Nothing like a good cup of coffee and texting ones oldest daughter, who is in New Mexico. I love how at any time of the day, I know what she is up to and what she is seeing. And I love the pics she sends, then she doesn't seem so far away. :) She should be headed back to Montana soon and we will all get together for the holiday. 

No big plans for today, except for one. It is the Brawl of the Wild football game in Bozeman, MT. Our rival is Montana State and we want the coveted (but ugly) trophy back. I am hoping for the best and it should be an exciting game. I will be watching from my couch this year, and working on holiday plans. And of course, a lot of screaming will take place. That's a given.

Hubby and I went to a special event this week that made me feel like a kid again. The 2017 Capitol Christmas tree stopped in Missoula on it's trek to Washington D.C., from the Yaak.  We got to the mall just as it was pulling in, horns a blaring and fronted by firetrucks and police. God I was so excited and literally jumped up and down squealing! Really, I did. There were tons of folks, snapping pictures and getting their photos taken with the driver and Santa, who was riding shotgun. And we were able to sign the truck. Our name is headed to DC! As you can see, the top of the tree is visible in a plexiglass box and it is all decorated with snowflakes and teepees. Also, a topper for the tree was made in Belgrade, MT  and it depicts our state flower, the Bitterroot.  It is an honor for our state and I am so glad they had the driver visit so many Montana towns. I wouldn't have wanted to miss this for the world!

So there you have it. The week in a nutshell. So many simple little pleasures that amount to living a great life. I don't ask for much. Just wonderful daughters, football games, semi's with huge trees, and maybe, just maybe another cup of hot coffee with a jelly doughnut chaser. Always, Kit

Kit - it is so cool that we both saw the tree!!! I am SO proud of our state. We just finished watching the Brawl and were sad the Griz lost out. Next year! And funny you should mention the (ugly) trophy - we said the same thing upon the first time ever seeing it (today)! Wishing you and your family a very blessed and fun Thanksgiving!

Such a happy post, Kit. Thought of you several times yesterday. The huge screen TV was on yesterday when we went to Billings for Emerson's birthday. I think the guys were all pulling for your team. Diane.
