Limelight Lodge hosts Jill and Maggie

Maggie and Jill visited the Limelight Lodge Saturday, February 19th. As soon as I can figure out how to include the cute photos, I will. Sorry, this blogger is having some blogging issues! Maggie always enjoys the Limelight as she feels she's the "hotel dog" and visits all the guests in the lobby. Little Evan enjoyed his mom reading the Fraser book to him and as always I had to use will power to not eat the delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies they serve when we come to read to the children. Look for the cute photo soon!

2010 Fraser Writing Contest

The Fraser Writing Contest 2010

I can't believe another year has passed and our 2010 Contest winners have been announced. We had over 65 story entries this past year. It is always a difficult thing to judge these stories as I feel each student has put their heart and soul into the stories.

I am honored to sponsor this contest year after year because I so believe in students' imagination and creativity to produce wonderful stories without it being required for school.

They really do it out of the love of writing.

We had full spreads in both The Snowmass Sun and The Aspen Times.

The contest is held at the Aspen Elementary School for 3rd and 4th graders.

This year's 3rd grade First Place Winner is Lauren Fox
This year's 4th grade First Place Winner is Cole Peterson.

The Snowmass Sun's article came out on December 22-28, 2010 edition and if you want to read the first place winners' stories, go to
