Christmas morning!

The boys waited patiently on top of the stairs for the word, "GO!" then bolted down the stairs resulting in a few tears...of course! Stockings first, its a white Christmas, play tent, toys...

Thanks Bond's for the awesome castle play set, they LOVE IT!

Thanks Auntie Alie, Uncle Eddie, Auntie Sarah and Uncle Greg for the car DVDs and Shawn White snowboard movie. They can't wait to use it on the way up to the mountains. :)

Thanks Grandma Viv and Papa Jim for the game, craft, Hulk hands, monster craft, little ride on car and mega blocks.

It was a happy Christmas indeed! Now we are headed to the hills for some sleding!

Christmas Eve!

Sprinkling "magic reindeer food" on the lawn, putting milk and cookies out...and carrots for the reindeers. Santa came!....left his foot prints, filled stockings, and left presents!

Pre-Christmas Fun!

Had a blast at Gavin's school party. They made reindeer sandwiches, had chocolate milk and cookies, made magic reindeer food, and ice cream cone Christmas trees. :) His teacher also read them the "Polar Express" and gave them bells from the North Pole, they were freezing cold. ;) Gavin also gave his teacher a homemade ornament, "Oh the Places You'll Go!" book, and homemade stationary with Gavin's artwork. She loved it.

We also, finally, went to see Santa with all 3 boys. Cooper could care less. He is so mellow, he really will let anyone hold him, thank goodness. Now a few more days until Christmas...time to make more treats and finish crafts. :) I love this time of year!

Grandma Vivvy visits!

My mom came to visit for a few days, it was so fun! We packed it in, yummy lunch, Denver Zoo lights, Santa and crafts and cookie making. So fun!

Tis the season! Cookie making, Parker was Joseph in his Nativity program, and more snowboard fun!

Plum Salon Opening!

My twin sister achieved her dream of opening her very own hair salon. I am so proud of her! Her salon is beautiful. It was a great weekend getaway for me and the Coop! (That Bob Stroller is a total steal I found at the local thrift store, it retails for over $500, I got it for $25!!!! Perfect condition. :)

Happy 1st Birthday Cooper

I can't believe my baby is 1. It has been a busy year, but having Cooper's sweet smile around has made everything a little sweeter. He is walking and talking, kissing and hugging...this kid unstoppable! He is in a hurry to catch up with his big brothers and it is making this Mama very sad. Cheers to you Cooper, may your next year be awesome. We love you!!!


Hiking, family face paint, yellow belts in Jiu Jitsu, happy Cooper, chores, table runner craft, family game night, loving husbands note he keeps in his wallet (celebrated 10 years of marriage), Cooper's 1st candy, 1st time snowboarding for the boys...success, they loved it. Good thing because we have season passes, more projects for me...silluette, thanksgiving tree.
