Yay Yay Yay! I found out how to post my pictures bigger and I am so happy! This was an experiment so sorry about the random picture. It was from Sundance last year so let's just say I am posting it to give everyone hope for spring!!!!

Should I be worried?

Shawn is going to be very mad that I actually posted this picture but I can't help it. Gunnar came running up the stairs in this outfit, laughing so hard at himself. He thinks he is so funny, and he really is. Now that he is going to have a big sister and a little sister, we are going to have to try extra hard to get this boy camping and doing manly things!

Just another day at the zoo!

We love a good zoo day! Especially in January! Denver can be 60 degrees one day and a blizzard the next. We took advantage of this nice day to go hang out with friends and do one of our favorite things!

1-2-3 Soccer!

Gunnar started a soccer class with his buddy Charlie and it is one of the funniest things I have ever seen! These two boys are hilarious! Can you believe that they are only 10 months apart in age? Charlie is the fastest little guy I have ever seen. It is no wonder that his mother is so skinny because he is hard to catch! Gunnar worships his coach and loves to help out. I even noticed him teaching the whole class how to to do the robot the other day. He is quite the character.

Polar Express

Seriously Polar Express. You are such a fun experience and really bring the Christmas Spirit, but if you are going to charge an arm and a leg, could Santa at least cover his real mustache.
I don't think that I am asking for much. It would just add to the experience if your kids really thought you were going to see the real Santa. Call me crazy. I guess I can't really complain since we got our tickets for free. Babe got to work three nights on the Polar Express so we went on a test run. Hopefully they worked out this kink before the paying customers went for a ride!

Thanksgiving in Utah!

Rider (Andy) has grown a new healthy head of hair! He wears fake tattoo sleeves every second so that nobody can poke him with needles anymore. His cancer is gone and he is doing so great! He loves to beat Babe and Father at Yahtzee and Uno. Seriously, a couple of words of warning. If you play a game with Ryder, let him win. If you call him Andy, prepare to get yelled at or mooned. And if you are Gunnar, never call Rider a poo head. I don't think that needs an explanation.

We had so much fun at Thanksgiving. Grace and Gunnar found out that they were going to be big brother and big sister and they were so excited! I should say they are so excited! We went to the local Nutcracker production which was so sweet and wonderful! We got to visit with lots of family as well. Aunt Kris, Babe, and P Pa made the best Thanksgiving dinner I think I have ever had! We also got to go to Polar Express and I will be posting some pictures of that as well.
