Sledding Fun

The snow came late in the day Christmas Day so I guess you could technically say we had a White Christmas.

But the accumulation came a little later, and we got out an had a blast!!! Isabel LOVED running like a crazy, wild dog in the snow and everyone had a blast taking turns on the hill.

While it wasn't the best sled, it was what we had, can't wait to test out a new one later in the week :)

Christmas Eve 2014

We spent the day at Rocky Mountian National sledding and enjoying the beauty. I'm  pretty sure we have started a new tradition.

Although we don't have any snow on the ground here right now, it is coming, tomorrow afternoon.  Maybe we will be able to do some sledding here!

Here is a little video of Christmas Eve at our house. All of the gifts from the family are opened and tomorrow we find out what Santa has brought.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Feed The Mini Beast!

The Jellybean has been introduced to puffs. She didn't like the "green veggies" (and I don't blame her) so I bought some peach and sweet potato flavored ones today. What do you think?


Hey, this won't move!

Baby Godzilla vs The Gingerbread House

We had fun decorating the gingerbread house and the Bean had a blast helping out as well, or destroying it, however you want to look at it. She was adding her own personal touch.

Starting Off Ski Season!

Today the Ladybug and I were able to sneak away and start our third ski season together!!! I can't believe that this is the third year she has been skiing.


It was a surprise and the look on her face when I went in to wake her up was awesome. I already had the car loaded, all we had to do was get dressed and hit the road.

She had a gobstopper in her mouth!
We had a fabulous morning skiing, the ladybug was a little worried in the beginning but she took off and never looked back. No falling today for her!!!
I told Pops he better double his exercise routine because the Ladybug is going to kick his butt this year!
We took a break from skiing and did a little tubing. She has a need for speed and got some of that in on the tubing hill.

Disney on Ice

Yesterday we took the girls to see Disney on Ice. Everyone had a blast, The Ladybug says her favorite part was when Jack Skeleton came out! I thought of you Elizabeth :)

The Jellybean slept through half of it and the over half she was staring at the people behind us in utter disbelief of their behavior. Some people just don't know how to act in public! That and I feel that people's standards are low these days.

We stopped for dinner on the way home. the Bean sat in a highchair and played and ate. Still wondering where my baby went!

A couple sat down behind us and asked how old she was. We told her and they were a bit stunned, their little girl who was with them was quite a bit smaller. Oh well

Christmas Wish Lists

Okay, I have had these up for two weeks I think.  But for some reason both are not showing up on the blog.  So, I am just posting the links to the pages here.

The Ladybug has had a pretty awesome week when it comes to school and making good choices. What a better way to celebrate than to have a "Girls Afternoon Out?"

She finished her work early so we headed out to the movies. Alexander And The No Good Very Bad Day it is!!!

The Jellybean was excited as well❤️

Busy Day for the Bug and the Bean

Everyone is feeling a bit better today! Thank goodness.

So the girls are getting a bit of "practice" and learning in.  The Ladybug has been working hard on school and exploring with weights, outer space, and practicing those spelling our pjs of course!

The Jellybean is working on that walker and EVERYTHING goes in her mouth!! The Bean can now sit up for short periods of time. 

The girls are growing up so fast!! Bricks to put on their heads for Christmas for sure!!!

Just Hanging Out

With a nasty stomach bug raging through our house I have spent a lot (too much!) time on the couch cuddling cute little girls and trying to feel better myself.

But who wouldn't want to spend the day with these two cuties?

Halloween with the Black and White Cats

The Ladybug came up with the idea to be a black cat months ago.  Then when we saw the cute white cat costume for the Jellybean we knew it was a perfect fit for all.

We had a party for some of the kids in the neighborhood and then we all headed out to trick or treat together as a group.  A great time was had by all, few pictures taken, but a fabulous fun time!!

The Jellybean Makes Her First Trip to CA with The Ladybug

We went out to California for our annual birthday trip.  Only this year we have birthdays and adoption days to celebrate!!  It was such a busy week...Daddy's birthday and adoption day all rolled into one, traveling, Legoland, a day with Oma and Opa, birthday parties, more time with Oma and Opa, and traveling home.

It was a busy week but an awesome one.  A few bumps in the road or head and a bee sting for the cousins, but tons of fun was had by all!!  We only wish the time had been a bit longer and that we had been able to see all of our friends as well.
