heading back home

We are very thankful for our time in the Colorado mountains.

On the last day we ate yummy food and did lots of shopping.

  Gary took this postcard worthy picture and I'm in love.

We are hitting the road now for home.  I'm grateful home has a new feeling now than it did a year ago.  We are going home to our new home.  We are feeling settled since buying a house.  We won't be moving from state to state and we will be cherishing every memory we make.  These babies aren't babies anymore and they will be driving and going to college before we know it.  So for now, we're enjoying every trip, every activity and loving this life God gave us.

Happy New Year from Crested Butte

I can't think of a more fun NYE than skiing with my favorites!

These guys ripped it up and skiied hard.  I'm so proud of them!

We all met at the Umbrella bar at the top of the mountain for lunch.

The skiing has been great, but we don't have any snow and it's melting.  I'm thankful we are leaving soon and hope next time we have more snow!!

Oh my I love these people so much!

Layla and I are on the same page.  We let the guys go nuts and we stay back and cruise.   Layla will be a fast skier one day, but I enjoy going slow and steady!

We had a fun NYE with friends.

We ate good tamales and tacos.  We played games.  We toasted the new year and stayed in until we heard the fireworks.  Even then we just stepped outside and peaked off the balcony of the condo.

Happy Happy 2018 y'all!!

amazing food, amazing friends

We enjoyed a nice meal with our friends downtown Crested Butte.

We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, steak and crab mac n cheese for dinner.

Each bite was wonderful.  I would highly recommend Elk Avenue Prime if you are in Crested Butte.

We love Crested Butte

The boys are planning and talking boy talk.

This is the view outside our condo back door.

We went into town to have dinner and do some exploring.

These two are ready to head to ski school!

Have a fun day guys!

Gary and I hit the slopes and then we had to rest for lunch.

Ahh the views are simply breath-taking.

We ate pizza and salad for dinner and it was wonderful.

Our buddy brought his leg compression machine and we all took turns at night to help fight the soreness.  It was so fun and of course Hayden had to try it out!

Day 2

All ready to roll.

We love skiing!

Merry Christmas

We woke up early Christmas morning and opened gifts.  It's always exciting to see what Santa delivered.  After we celebrated as a family of 4 we went to Clifton to visit my Aunt and Uncle.  Hayden rode his motorcycle and Layla just jumped around, as you can see.

We started the day with pancakes.  Gary is our pancake artist and he has taught the kids how to make fun shapes with pancake batter.  He made a birthday cake for Jesus, Santa's sleigh, Daisy's face and of course Hayden had to make the ever so popular turd emoji, picutred on LK's gown.

The dogs got bones from my parents and Santa brought them candy canes too.

I got warm furry blankets for my living room and I couldn't be happier!  Silly Daisy is licking her nose begging for more treats.  We had a very Merry Christmas!
