Merry Christmas!

Elizabeth is really getting into the spirit of things! It's so fun to see Christmas from the perspective of a toddler - its all so new and exciting. Even though she still doesn't really get it yet she sure is having fun and is pretty darn good at unwrapping gifts already.
Merry Christmas!

Snowing Outside - Let's go to the Pool!

We woke up to another snowy day today and decided we needed to get out of the house for a while so we packed it up and headed to the pool!
Colorado is absolutely fantastic when it comes to options for exercise. This facility is part of the Foothills Parks and Recreation service and is just down the street from our house! Its brand new and has everything from racquetball courts to water slides and everything in between. Of course the activity pool is Elizabeth's favorite place, especially the little water slide and the fountains!

Playing in the Snow

The weather here has been getting colder and we have had a few snowy days already. It turns out that Elizabeth and Gregario both love the snow! Here are a couple of fun shots of Elizabeth and Gregario outside.

Ellie's First Christmas Concert

Elizabeth had her very first Christmas concert, it was pretty entertaining to see all the adorable little kids all dressed up in their Christmas clothes and trying to participate.
While most of the kids were content sitting up on the stage, Elizabeth was marching to her own tune (I wonder where she gets that from? :-) I kinda think she wanted to do a little solo!
Elizabeth's school did a great job pulling it all together. As you can imagine the whole thing was total chaos but i'm not sure what else you would get with about 80 toddlers running around for a Christmas concert. None of the kids knew what to do or what the heck was going on, they had someone trying to run the microphones and music who didn't have a clue, so of course the speakers were ripping loud out in the lobby but wern't on at all in the Church so everytime they tried to use the mic it sounded like the mom from Charlie Brown but in the end it just added to the entertainment value of the whole thing!
I'm already looking forward to next years concert!
