Pre-birthday celebration

Jetta will be one soon. Dave's parents came in town to celebrate. We had Jetta's favorite, chocolate chip cookies with candles in the middle. Henry sang to Jetta and then blew out her candle......Birthdays are hard when they are not yours. I still struggle.

Winter Park getaway!

Okay, so can I just say that Dave has the best boss ever!! She was not able to use her condo vacation this week and asked if Dave and I would like it, for let me think......YES!!!! I don't even know when the last time was we took a vacation with just our little family. Winter Park is a ski resort town about 1-2 hours from Denver. The condo we stayed in was great. Two bed, two bath, full kitchen and family room for just us. Could it be any better? The kids loved it and so did we. There was a mogul competition at the Winter Park Resort, so we went and viewed. It was very cool, I have never been to a ski competition. We played in the snow, sat around and went to the Winter Park train depot. Henry loves trains. Henry did not get car sick which he usually does and since Jetta now faces forward in her car seat she did not scream the entire time. It could not have been a better vacation!!!!!!!

sibling bonding

Are they really sitting still and not fighting over the book. Journal moment!!!

Warmer weather is coming......we hope!

Maybe about once or twice a week we have some warm days, in the 50's and 60's. It is fantastic and when those days occur we take advantage!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

We have a little play group with some neighborhood friends and decided to have a Valentine's party with the kids. They had a blast and so did the parents, at least I did. We decorated cookies made valentines and played valentine bingo with m&m's. Jetta got her first valentine, it was mutilated the next minuet. Henry loved making cookies, however the frosting never quite made it onto the cookie. He just liked it piled into the palm of his hand, it was easier to eat.

The grocery store

Henry likes to pretend that he is grocery shopping, however we do not have a cart or pretend food so he uses his jeep as well as real food. The only problem is when he won't let me put it back and it has been a few hours and I am worried about the food going bad.
