Welcome to our Web site!
We are Cris and Phyllis Alexander, a couple of "Colorado Improved Texans" who love the Lord and strive to serve Him in every facet of our lives. We are blessed to live in beautiful Colorado, where we see God in His incredible creation everywhere we look. It is our hope that you will enjoy our site and that it will whet your appetite for the Creator as you appreciate His creation.
Here's a little bit about us...
Phyllis is a very crafty person who makes cards, jewelry and does all sorts of other crafts. She enjoys reading, working jigsaw puzzles and keeping tropical fish. She is an organizational wizard who can bring order out of any kind of chaos! Perhaps it is this talent that stimulated her interest in genealogy. Phyllis has researched our ancestry back to Noah (well... maybe not quite that far...) and enjoys following branches in both her and Cris's family trees to see how far they will go. She is the delight of Cris's life.
Cris is an engineer who always wants to know how things work. He loves to fly fish, ski, snowmobile and ATV. His "man cave" in the basement of our home contains his wood shop, fly-tying bench and model railroad.
We both love the outdoors and escape to the mountains every chance we get, spending our weekends at our cabin in Grand County, Colorado. We vacation every summer at Lake City, Colorado in the most beautiful country on the face of the planet. On our "bucket list" are visits to Yellowstone and Alaska, and we hope to see both of those places someday soon.
We have two adult children, Gary and Amanda. Gary lives in Haltom City, Texas and works at a restaurant. Amanda and her husband Jordon live in Colorado, just a few miles from Mom and Dad. Amanda is also an engineer.
We also have three grandkids, Sean and Sara, who live in the Dallas area, and Kayden, who lives near Ft. Worth.
And finally we have a one-eyed kitty, "Spice," who keeps us entertained, and a whole bunch of tropical fish in two large tanks, and they keep Spice entertained!
We are privileged to serve and worship God at Redeemer Baptist Church in Aurora and Stillwater Community Chapel in Grand Lake.
