Carol's Self-Portrait

Since the photographer gets left out of a lot of the pictures, I decided to try taking a photo of myself next to the giant Christmas wreath by our front door.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Thanksgiving Dinner 2006

Here is our 16-pound bird and the dinner crowd. Besides the turkey, there was mashed potatoes (and gravy), sweet potato casserole, 2-berry salad, rolls... and I forgot to put the cranberry sauce on the table. Too much going on at the last minute to remember everything! According to the troops, it was all yummy. I was too tired from doing all the cooking to really enjoy it. I will enjoy the leftovers, though!

In the picture from left to right:
Amy & Troy Greenhalgh, Max Jr., Max Sr., Jeremy, Jeff, Calvin. I, of course, was taking the picture.

Carol's Real Estate Blogs Immortalized In Book

Anyone who is paying attention, knows I'm really into blogging and have been for about 1 1/2 years. Although I've had phenomenal success getting high rankings in the search engines (through my blogs), I'm always looking for ways to improve my skills and understand how to do better.

Last week I ordered a highly recommended and newly published book (not offically released until January 2007) and received it a few days ago. My thrill at getting the book soon changed to jumping-up-and-down excitement when I got to page 22 and found my two Wenatchee real estate blogs listed in the blogroll of one of the nations most highly rated blogs. If you go to the website mentioned in the book, you can actually scroll down the right side column (under Real Estate Blogs) and click on live links and get to MY Wenatchee residential blog and Wenatchee investment blog!

It's amazing to think I was in on the blogging revolution early enough to get my blogs listed in a book about how to blog for real estate. My blogs are now immortalized in a published book!

My arm is still pretty sore from patting myself on the back. How cool is that!

Cowboy Max

You can take the boy off the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy. Here are a couple of pictures of Max, taken tonight, in his robe, slippers and cowboy hat. You can click on the pictures to enlarge.

Still a darn handsome dude, isn't he?
