Friends, Fun and Family...

Happy Post Christmas Madness...

I feel like I have so much to recap from the last week...overwhelming...I am pooped and just finished a very fun day of skiing with my family!  We have had a wonderful break...filled with so much fun...we made so many happy memories.  A highlight was seeing some friends who drove-in for 24 hours for a quick visit.  They used to live here and moved about 2 hours away...we miss them aloft and were able to get lots crammed in the time...swimming and pizza at their hotel pool, girls shopping, adults only dinner out and I hosted brunch for a few of their/our friends...the kids were all able to play and were very excited waiting for Santa's arrival later that night...we just feel so lucky to have so many special friends that we spent the holiday with when were not able to be with family!

Be back soon to recap both my boys' birthdays, an overnight to Chicago, day trip to my parent's and Christmas Eve Nativity...then Christmas Day and the ski trip we took today!  We look forward to a relaxing last few days of break...

Piano Recital

Charlotte and Campbell have been playing piano for about 6 months now...last weekend they had their very first recital and it was beautiful!  They were both nervous but so brave and played so well...we are SO proud of you both!  We love you so much and thank you for adding music and joy to our hearts everyday!

Leaving home...

 Charlotte went first of the two (#6 out of 19 kids)...other than a little hair in her face that slowed her start she was fantastic!

Campbell's turn!

Her Daddy and our sweet neighbor who attended gave Charlotte flowers...she loved it!

Then it was off to a was a very special day!
