Our Trip to the Georgetown Railroad

All Aboard Last weekend we had a family day out and made a visit to the Georgetown Loop Railroad. With Abo up from Brazil visiting it was a perfect opportunity to treat ourselves to the beautiful Rocky Mountain scenery. The Georgetown Loop Railroad is a 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge United States heritage railroad located in the Rocky Mountains in Clear Creek County, adjacent to Interstate 70 in Colorado. This tourist train runs between the communities of Georgetown and

Up Go the Lights

We were blessed with some nice weather on Saturday, as well as some free time, so the boys and I took a couple of hours to put up the outside Christmas lights. Nothing over the top, but enough to say Merry Christmas to our neighborhood.

The week we taught Miss P to walk on a leash.

This week was interesting, you see last week I decided that our lovely house cat Miss P needed some outdoor action.  However we couldn't just let her out, we have a busy road nearby and we have already lost one cat (R.I.P. Koby Kat) so we needed an idea. People walk dogs an leashes, why cant we walk cats?  Why not lets give it a try.  I popped over to Amazon and found several pages of cat leashes.  YAHOO!   The

A Valentine’s Day Birthday

My son Brandon has the distinction of being born on Valentine's Day.  A day of love and romance.  However back on this day in 2003, my lovely wife was working hard to push this little guy out.

King of the Hill

Danny Brewington, sledding

January brings with it snow here in Colorado; this kind of weather is to be expected in January.  This morning we woke to a fresh coat of soft snow.  After a quick clean of our driveway and sidewalks, the boys and I decided to hit the big hill next to the middle school. To our surprise, we were the first to hit the hill.  The Brewington Boys will be the first, kings of the hill, trailblazers making the first grooves in the freshly fallen

The Train

This week my family and I were decorating the house getting it ready for Christmas, and my job was to put the star on top of the tree and to put together the mechanical "Train" that goes under the tree.  So first I tried it out, and it turned out great, but then slowly it went down hill. A piece came off the I could not put it back so I asked my dad if he could fix it but he

What a Difference a Year Makes.

Wow what a difference a year makes.  I look back over the last year since last Thanksgiving and I can only thank God for all he has done for me and my family.  It was around this time last year that I had no idea how I was going to pay my bills.  Things were not going well, things with our move had taken a turn for the worst.  With my back against the wall I said a simple prayer,
