Denver Nutcracker…

Last Thursday 5 of us got to go down to Denver and watch a mid day performance of Colorado Ballet’s Nutcracker. We got tickets through Caedmon’s dance company and had a great day. The 2 littles had preschool and then got to spend the afternoon with Honey and Grandpa so they had a great day…

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…

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.

Thankfullness

Thursday Evening Hike

On another recent Thursday we packed up in the late afternoon and headed up the mountain to hike. We went to Ouzel Falls trail and while we didn’t make it all the way to the falls, the trail is full of other water falls and it was just a great evening to get out and…

And Coppelia is 4!

4 years ago on August 21, 2015, Clint and I were actually in Seoul, we flew out early that afternoon after Edric’s court meeting on the 20th for his adoption. Little did we know that across the city our little spitfire of a girl was making her way into the world. I think had we…
