Thanksgiving Peak

We did not take an abundance of photos over our Thanksgiving trip to Estes Park and most of them were of elk, not cute little girls :-). It was so much fun to get away and relax. We did craft projects, watched movies (and of course football), found the Big Dipper, saw LOTS of wildlife, and went hiking and sledding. As we were watching an elk herd one day the girls hung out the back window pretending to shoot the elk with their markers to make jerky. Grandpa's girls :-). We love you all and are so thankful to have such loving, thoughtful and fun friends and family!!!!!

Santa Visit

India and Jordyn have had the privelege of seeing Santa a few times this year. Here is a picture of their first encounter. India is asking for a real dog and a dog bowl for it. (Santa did say that it is difficult to bring live animals on the sleigh so we've talked to India about the possiblity of getting a family dog over Christmas break.) Jordyn is asking for a doll, an alarm clock, and a coloring book.

Before adding the Santa picture, I found this picture of the girls the other day and decided it is one of my all time favorites. Couldn't you just eat them up?!
