Happy Thanksgiving!

Today we woke up and decided that we NEEDED to see snow!!  So we packed up and headed to the mountains for the day :))  We went sledding at Berthoud Pass and then headed down into Winter Park for lunch and some exploring.  Everyone had a blast and we will eat Turkey and all the fixings tomorrow...

The Day in Golden and Beyond...

Today we went to the Colorado Railroad Museum just outside of Golden. It was awesome to be able to crawl around on trains, look at a Roundhouse and watch a turntable. The BEST part was getting to ride on a real steam train!!!

Safi had a blast, Chris was in awe, and it was a beautiful day!!!

We drove by the Coors plant and went into town to find some lunch, we made a mistake there (chose a not so good diner). So we cut our loses and head up toward Winter Park. We had a fabulous time playing in the snow at Berthoud Pass.

It was a wonderful impromptu day!!

A Day of Pretend

So today I cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned some more. For the record my house isn't that dirty, it just takes a little more time when you have a helper and I made a few more boxes disappear, oh and I organized closets as well.

Last night we had movie night, I know it wasn't Friday but Chris wasn't going to be home tonight and he didn't want to miss out. We watched BRAVE and ate homemade pizza.

So today Safi dug out her BRAVE figures and a few others. She used her magna tiles and made a whole city on the landing of the stairs (it also worked as a great booby trap for Momma). She played for hours and they had all kinds of conversations, it was wonderful.

Then she made her way upstairs to her room (which I had just finished cleaning up) and dug out baby dolls and bunny rabbits that she pushed around in their stroller and took them to the hotel (my room) and the pool (the guest room).

It was a great day of imagination and creativity.

Oh she also worked on her letters on the back door with window crayons, and I had to include a pic of the monkeys. I put some oil on them and brought them back to life. They were so dry and sad looking, now they look totally different, I think they are smiling a little bit bigger now :))
