Spring in February?

Last Sunday it was a balmy 69!!! Not your usual pre Valentines weather here in the mountains. We aren't complaining one bit. We spent the afternoon teaching B. how to ride his strider bike and as a reward we let each kiddo "ride" on daddy's bike to the mail box and back. They were in heaven. L, was napping at first and wasn't waking up too quickly but ended up perking up when we offered the ride (top right photo). 

New Years Trip

Two days after Christmas we took off to Denver to see my family. It was a whopping 5 degree high several of the days we were there. Our kids were unfazed and still got out and played in the snow as long as we would let them. Overall we had a wonderful time and were so thankful that we got the chance to be reunited with family and friends over the holiday break. 

We have no idea what the context of this picture was, but the faces are priceless. 

Christmas 2014

We spent Christmas Eve at G.'s house. It was so much fun to have a fancy dinner and have all the littles play together. The prime rib was incredible as always (my mother in law is an amazing cook). Then we headed home for our first ever Christmas at home. 

G.'s sister spent Christmas morning with us, the boys loved having her help open presents. As you can probably see, each boy received a ride on toy. Since this was a white Christmas the boys tested out their new wheels around the kitchen island. 

At the last minute I decided to make cinnamon rolls. Shockingly it was my first time ever making them.  I was very proud of how they turned out. If you haven't made your own cinnamon rolls before I highly recommend you give these a try. http://ourbestbites.com/2010/06/everyday-cinnamon-rolls/
