2001 Duncan Christmas in Colorado top
you probably know by now, Doug & Crystal Duncan welcomed their
first baby into the world on March 27th, 2001. Her name is Ashley
Ann Duncan, and she is a beautiful little girl. You can see more of
her on Ashley's Page. She
had a WONDERFUL first Christmas this year, and thank you to all who
traveled to Denver to be here for it! Jere Duncan (Ashley's Grandma)
traveled from Billings,MT, Janet Duncan (Ashley's aunt) traveled from
New York City, Aaron Scott (Ashley's uncle) returned to Denver from
Korea, before being stationed in Virginia, and Rochelle and Katarina
Scott (Ashley' aunt and cousin) traveled from Texas to be here. Ashley
and Katarina both got quite the loot Christmas morning and our little
house was almost too small for it all! Of course the entire family
who also live in the Denver area were in attendance. Christmas Eve
a group of our family went over to my aunt Sharmon & uncle Marty's
house for festivities, as we do each year, and it was fun, as usual!
They are great hosts!
People in attendance here for Christmas morning "opening
of the gifts" were: Doug, Crystal, and Ashley Duncan, Jere Duncan,
Janet Duncan, Bev Scott, Ruby DeBeaux, Roger DeBeaux, John Scott, Lucy
Aarts-Scott, Aaron Scott, Rochelle and Katarina Scott, Trisha Scott,
Chris Dow, and Evelyn Chance. Lot of people for such a little house,
but it was very fun. Thank you to you all for making Ashley's first
Christmas a great time, and for all the help preparing the wonderful
dinner we had!

28, 2001 Ashley Duncan's Christening top
Duncan was officially Christened on October 28th, 2001 with the
accompaniment of her entire family who lives in Denver. Her uncle
Aaron (Crystal's brother) was also in town after returning from
a year of service in Korea, before being stationed in Virginia.
Her aunt Rochelle and cousin were also in from Texas for the event.
Her appointed Godparents are Chello Herbert as Godfather, and Trisha
Scott as Godmother. Chello is Doug's best friend and came down from
Billings, MT for this event, and Trisha Scott is Crystal's younger
sister, who lives in Denver.
2001 Family Reunion went without a hitch. It was a great time for
everyone who showed up and it is always exciting to see people you
have not seen in a while. Hosting the reunion was Helen and Oliver
Sullivan, who live in Billings, MT. The turnout was not as well as
originally hoped, but the week of the reunion was also the week a
lot of schools started back in session, preventing many people from
traveling out of state. Hopefully next year we will schedule the reunion
at an earlier date. All the immediate Duncan family showed as well
as many other families including the Sullivans, Renos, Harkin, Lumley,
Scott, DeBeaux, and many others. Many friends of the family were also
there. I have left the link for the schedule of events for anyone
interested in seeing what was originally planned: Schedule

10, 2001 Baby shower for Crystal Duncan top
On March 10, 2001, we had my baby shower. The shower was given by
my Mom, Granny, Sister, step-Mom and sister-in-law. We had about 20
family and friends here at our house (Crystal's). First we played
the clothespin game and you could not say baby, boy, or girl, or you
lost a clothespin. At the end of the shower, Aunt Mary won. We then
played how much yarn will it take to go around my belly? Brenda (coworker
of my Mom) won that one. Then it was the baby food guessing, and that
was won by Rochelle (my sister-in-law). We all ate lots and talked
about baby things. I was planted into my chair the entire time, but
I was allowed up long enough to go to the bathroom, look at my baby
cake (carrot cake brought by Aunt Sharmon) and show my belly off.
Every time I tried to get up I was told sit my butt down by everyone!
My Mom and Granny ( Bev and Ruby) brought a veggie tray, crackers,
chips, pop, tortilla wraps, and nuts. My Step Mom (Lucy) brought a
meat tray, bread, and fruit. Baby made a great haul on his/her stuff
I received as gifts. We got many things that we still needed. My Aunt
Sharmon made me a baby diaper cake. It was so cool, and there
were little baby things tied all over it. That cake was the talk of
the shower. As soon as we get photo's, we will post them here. My
Mom, Granny and Sister did all the decorating of the house, since
I was forced to sit in my chair. The shower was a great time even
thought it was snowing. Thank
you to all who came, and to my family for putting on such a great
and fun shower!!
20-24, 2001 Deadwood/Mount Rushmore/Billings Trip
top of page
Doug and Crystal took their last "official" trip/vacation
before the baby's born, to Deadwood, SD where we also met up with
some friends. We met Chello Herbert from Billings, and Craig
and Lani Bolenbaugh from Missoula on this trip. We all visited
Mount Rushmore with the group because none of them have ever been
there before, even though we have been there numerous times. After
the trip to Deadwood, we spent the last couple days in Billings, MT
before returning to Denver. The whole trip was very uncomfortable
to Crystal because she was so far along with the pregnancy. Also we
picked the wrong time of year to visit this area because NOTHING was
open (except casinos, of course). Normally they have several fun attractions
in the area, but they are mostly all seasonal. Otherwise it was a
very fun trip. We did not take many photos while we were there, but
I have posted a few of them using the link below.
