I found some pictures! Curt had downloaded pictures while we were still in Spokane so I have some to put on our blog! The rest of them are stuck on our camera until we figure out what is going on with it :) Heres a Christmas miracle for you. The Wednesday before Christmas, Denver had the 4th biggest recorded snow in its history. 4000 people were stuck at the airport for 2 days because there was so much snow they had to shut down the airport. Friday at noon they finally opened the airport. A friend of Curts had given both of us buddy passes to cut the cost of flying home for Christmas. Well buddy pass people are not the first priority for any flight but espescially when there is 4000 people trying to get out of the airport for Christmas. Him getting to Spokane looked bleak to say the least. There was about a snowballs chance in you know where that he would get out of Denver before the 26th. So we fought a lot about how to get him out of there. I wanted him to camp out at the airport until he got a flight and he just wanted to listen to everyone at the airport that said he was not going to get out of there anytime soon. Anyways, to make a long story longer he went back to the airport on Saturday morning around 5:30 to try and get on the first flight out and if that didnt work he would stay all day and try to get on every flight possible. He decided to just take a carry on instead of trying to check luggage and that turned out to be the best idea. When he went to the counter at the gate and told the lady that he had a buddy pass and was wanting to try to get on the next flight to Seattle she laughed at him. She then said that she was sorry to laugh but the chances of him getting out before Christmas was like a....well you know. He said I know, I know all of the reason why it will never work but Im going to try. Well miracle of miracles, he got on that flight. He said he was high fiveing all of the people on the way into the plane. I guess there were a bunch of peole who were still stuck in the check in and serurity lines. My Dad came and woke me up to tell me that Curt got on a plane and I cant tell you how happy I was. I danced around the house. It was the best feeling in the world!!! So I had the best Christmas because there was a point when we didnt know if I would get to spend Christmas with my husband!
