Lots of Moisture!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sledding It was a snowy, but beautiful January here in Pagosa Springs. Wolf Creek Ski Area is proud to once again have the most snow and the best powder in Colorado. If you have never skied Wolf Creek you really ought to put it at the top of your vacation list. Folks that come into my gift store are always saying how impressed they are with the town and the ski area.

We received over 3 feet of snow in one storm, and at least another foot a few days later. It transformed Pagosa into a true winter wonderland. The photo here is of Allan, Lisa and the grandkids sledding down the road at our main pasture lease here in Pagosa. They really got some speed going and had a fabulous time. I held the camera and had no trouble at all resisting any urge to try it myself.


Spring Break in Mexico
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Allan's niece is getting married on February 27th in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, and Allan and I will be attending. Besides not wanting to miss a good party, it did not take a lot of arm twisting to make the decision to go. We will actually be gone for 11 days and are staying at the Grand Mayan Riviera in Cancun. We are both really looking forward to it.

Unless Lisa and her husband decide at the last minute to join us, she will be here to take and fill orders. Should anything change we will let you know.


Packing Your Orders
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Shipping Lisa, Allan and Lisa's daughter Reece are busy packing your orders. The walk in freezer is set to 20 degrees below zero, so Lisa cannot dress warm enough to withstand the cold. Needless to say she is glad when the orders are pulled and ready to go each week.

Reece, on the other hand, thinks being allowed to go into the freezer is one of life's great joys. She gets so excited when mom lets her go in. I suspect in a few years that will wear off. However, Lisa's son, Kyler, at 7 years old still thinks going with grandpa to work with the animals is about the best thing in life. We really hope that never wears off.


Best Ground Beef Recipe Contest
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Got a great ground beef recipe? We would love to have you submit it for our "Best Ground Beef Recipe Contest." Just email that recipe to us by March 15th, and we will announce the winner in April. First place winner will receive 10 free pounds of ground beef with their next order, and runner up will receive 5 free pounds. So if you think you have a good recipe, please send it to us. We will publish the best of the recipes in our newsletter for all to enjoy.

Judging will be done by a completely impartial group of judges - Allan, Lisa and me! Our decision is final even if it makes no sense whatsoever. We are really looking forward to this contest and hope you will participate. If it goes well we hope to do more recipe contests in the future.


February Valentine's Special
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This is a package you will not want to miss! You will receive 2 Chuck Roasts, 1 Sirloin Tip Roast, 3 Sirloin Tip Steaks, 3 Top Round Steaks, 2 packages of Kabob/Stew Meat, and 20 pounds of Ground Beef - a total value of $235 - all for $175, a savings of $60. Just tell us you want to take advantage of the Valentine's Day Special. This price will be good through the end of the month. Don't miss this one!


In Closing ...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We hope this newsletter finds you all well and happy. With one month down and eleven to go for 2010, once again we need to find a way to slow time down or it will be December 31st before we know it. Live in the moment, enjoy every minute, and learn to recognize God's blessings, especially the small ones. Celebrate the small moments and your life will be full of blessings and time will slow down for you. God bless you all.

Lois, Allan, Lisa & Family
