Becky’s World

A Day in the Life of Becky

Home for the Holidays

Work of Art

It was great to be home for the holidays this year. I definitely missed it. It’s amazing though, how many things have changed. Again, just a reminder how life goes on.

We celebrated at my uncle Terry and aunt Karen’s new house. It’s beautiful….and huge. It butts up against the Lake Elmo Park Reserve and has enough room to hold the entire Moody clan comfortably. Did I mention that it has an elevator, monster screen TV, pool and hot tub. And, it’s not just any pool, lest you forget this is my uncle that owns the pool company. I got ‘the show’ with colored lights, waterfall, jets, spouts of water, and the piped in music throughout the entire house. So, Sean and I enjoyed ourselves. However, when we got out of the pool…..most everyone else was gone. Oops. It was a lot of fun.

So, things have started to change. Also, this year was the first year without my grandma Gerboth here. Yet, I am sure she was here in spirit and looking down with smiles as the family adjusted. She is missed terribly.

One thing that hasn’t changed was the great gingerbread house tradition my high school girl friends and I started they year before I left. Thank you Sarah for making them, Abby for the tasty food and hosting, Carly…for the silver ball memory that I will never forget; I had a blast. Yes, we ate way too much sugar, but mixed with all that wine…..it was a great night.

Site Updated – Ooh, Lah, Lah

I’ve decided to change the site. Hope you like it. You can still view all old photos, blogs, comments. It’s all been copied over, except for the bookclub book reviews…they have moved to the bookclub site. Check out the page labeled “Favorites” on top.

Innocent Girl Pied at Thanksgiving Dinner

A Face Full of Pie

None of the Moody family can say this Thanksgiving was boring. Although most of our family events aren’t ‘normal’, the pieing was a first. After the traditional candle-blowing and Polarode picture taking from grandma, the evening took a new twist when my aunt Carole pied me. That’s right, just like on TV when the unsuspeciting, innocent bystander turns the other way to get a face full of pie.

Don’t worry though, there was revenge, and it was sweet. Sorry to say the Ronsberg’s living room wasn’t as clean as it had started, but boy was it fun.
