One of the neat pictures that we had done was a four generation picture. This is my grandma, my mom, me and my daughter, Isabelle. It is a picture I will treasure for a long time.
I couldn't help but snap these pics when we were at Garden of the Gods. Somehow he felt impowered when he reached the top and took on a Transformer-like personality. I was laughing so hard as I took these pictures of him striking all these poses! What a mess!
You can almost tell a story with these pictures:
They can't take us!
The power of good shall always prevail!
Another victory! It is good to be a Transformer!
(Notice Isabelle is completely clueless that this battle just took place right next to her! Actually, I think she is wondering who her brother was yelling at!)
One of the kids' favorite spots to stop and climb around is at Balanced rock. This time they decided to be brave and sit up on the ledge for me to take their picture. After the picture they were very eager to climb around on the rocks.
Okay...well, it is going to take me a little while to get caught up on here. We had a wonderful trip to Colorado for Christmas! Santa surprised us a couple nights before Christmas and let us know that we would be able to join the rest of the family out there for the holidays! We LOVE Santa!
The kids were so thrilled to see snow! There wasn't a lot on the ground when we got to town on Christmas Eve, but it didn't matter to them. They didn't go into Nana's house for quite a while because they were throwing snow at each other. The weather man brought good news, though. It would be a white Christmas. It still wasn't a lot of snow, but it was nice to be in a place that actually had snow on Christmas! The kids LOVED it!
Uncle Ben and Ian started the snow angels and pretty soon the whole backyard was covered by them!
We didn't have a real sled, so we found anything that might work on the small hill in the backyard! Plastic lids did the trick!
Nana even joined in the fun! She was trying to push Isabelle down the hill, but Isabelle kept sliding off her "sled."
We can't wait to see snow again! It was so much fun!
