O Christmas Tree 2019….

Last Friday found us in the cold picking out our Christmas Tree. We have been going to the same place for the past few years and we returned again this year. It is a family owned business that cuts and clears areas in Colorado and then uses the trees for Christmas Trees. The trees are…

Sugar Plum Tea 2019

On Saturday my mom, Coppelia, and I got to have a girls day. We dropped off goodies for the Sugar Plum Tea, and then did a little Christmas shopping. This year everyone in our family is picking out an ornament that we will wrap up and then unwrap on Christmas eve and put on our…

Lots of snow

We got a lot of snow last week. To the tune of 18-20 inches. And it was super cold….and really it hasn’t warmed up all that much. The snow has been beautiful though. The kids have played in it quite a bit and on Wednesday my Dad brought the 4-wheeler over with some sleds. They…

Library Nut…..

It’s that time of year where there are going to be some Nutcracker posts. We are fast approaching show time and in the mean time there are a lot of Nutcracker things going on. Monday was a prime example, as a community outreach the ballet company that Caedmon dances for, Centennial State Ballet, did a…

Thanksgiving 2019….

As I sit in a fairly quiet ER this early Thanksgiving morning with my patients currently tucked in and I have a few minutes of quiet I have a chance to reflect on being thankful. I know I will gather this evening after hopefully a few hours of sleep with my family, my parents and…

Making Christmas…

I know we are still a few days before Thanksgiving and I’m typically not one to do Christmas things before Thanksgiving because I really enjoy just taking a month to reflect and be thankful. That being said I was looking ahead to December and given my work schedule, eye surgery, Nutcracker, and the day in…

Thankfullness

This month as we reflect on the year and our lives we are doing a thankfulness bucket at our house. In reality its a thankfulness popcorn bowl but it works. At least once a day usually during lunch or dinner we go around the table and ask everyone one thing that they are thankful for….

Snow White and the 6 Dwarfs….

Snow White and her 6 Dwarfs overtook our family for Halloween. Everyone got to choose which dwarf they wanted to be, except Clint and I chose for him. The only one we didn’t have was Grumpy…although Caedmon did say “Mommy sometimes you are Grumpy.” To which I told him that for that comment I might…

Pumpkins X2

So sometimes you have to carve pumpkins twice for Halloween and sometimes it might be because mommy made a mistake and forgot some basic laws of nature….sometimes. Our first pumpkin carving attempt was on the 19th. We had been hiking that day and then decided to make it a family fun night. We had plenty…

Hiking with Uncle Chris

A couple of weekends ago we finally got to meet up with my brother and go hiking. He lives just south of Denver so we headed that way and met up at Castlewood Canyon State Park which I didn’t even know existed. It is a canyon just south of Denver and it was gorgeous. We…
