our gingerbread house & a few frosting smiles :)

preschool party

Kassidy's preschool had a Christmas party. They made gingerbread houses and sang us a handful of songs. Kassidy had a special line in the song Rudolph (she was the only one to have a 'solo!'). She said "like a lightbulb!" :D

3rd annual christmas tree hunt

We are so thankful to the D family for letting us explore their 80 acres of mountain woods to find our 3rd real Christmas tree! It's now a tradition (as of 3 years ago) to go hunt down our own tree, chop it down, and bring it home. This year our tree is a whopping 12 feet high! As we look at it in our front room, over half way to the top of the cathedral ceiling, we wonder how in the world we managed to fit it in the truck. :) And since we live in CO now, our tree is slightly less "Charlie Brown tree-looking" since our previous 2 trees came from 'wooded' NM. :D Once we get a picture of it, we'll post a picture of the tree in the house here. Anyhow, here's a few pics from our hunt!


Such a little lady now! She's looking more and more like Shirley Temple every day...:) She watches Shirley Temple's sing a long with Gramma now and love it.

We hosted Thanksgiving this year, for 14 of us!! Here's a few snapshots of the events! We grilled the turkey, had a full spread of food, and even played 'pin the hat on the turkey!' Good times. :)

loveland pass

On our way back from our family ski vacation to Keystone we stopped by Loveland Pass. As always it was cold and windy! But we got a few pics and jumped back into the warm car. :)

Next Year, Buddy!!

While Kassi skied Landon had a good time with Mommy (while Daddy skied) and Daddy (while Mommy skied). It was REALLY cold but he liked eating and stomping on the snow!

Our Little Bomber!!

We took Kassidy skiing for her first time at a real resort. The first time, with all day lessons, she wasn't so sure about it. But when Daddy took her for the day she LOVED it! He said she was a little bomber, just tearing off down the hill. That's my girl!!!
