Jeremy took a week off of work and we drove to Colorado to spend Christmas with Nana, Grandpa, and Talon.
Highlights of our trip: Shasta, Butterfly pavilion, playing games, A Christmas Story Musical, Las Tortugas, toffee & fudge, the park.
|My three babes sleeping while I (cough cough) am driving.|
|One of Carly's Christmas presents was the Endless Alphabet App for the ipad. Best idea ever! She didn't even watch a show until the last 20 minutes of our 12 hour drive.|
|Books with Nana|
|Carly and Shasta played hide and go seek a lot. It was too cute. Carly would hide and Shasta would go find her. Nana would hide Shasta and Carly would find her.|
|At the Butterfly Pavilion. Carly loved walking up the stairs and having us point to what |
was in the glass.
|We held Rosie the Spider!|
|Carly looking at the star fish. She decided not to touch it as soon as Jeremy picked her up.|
|Jeremy touched a butterfly. After that Carly told us to touch every butterfly we could see.|
|Nana and Emma watching butterflies.|
|Nana and Carly watching all the pretty butterflies.|
|Emma even started picking up the ball and throwing it for Shasta.|
|Emma enjoying some snow.|
|Carly loves loves loves Shasta. Where ever Shasta was Carly wanted to be with her. She loves throwing the ball in the air so Shasta could catch it.|
|Emma LOVES stairs. Any time she got the chance, she was crawling as fast as she could to the stairs to go up!|
|Carly offering Talon some of the chocolate from the spoon.|
|Nana helping Carly wash off her hands.|
|We took the girls to the park where Jeremy and I had our wedding reception. We try and visit this park every time we go and get a picture. This year it was freezing, windy, and super icy.|
|Me and my handsome date :)|
|How we watch shoes at Grandpa and Nana's house.|
|Carly and Emma with Tasia.|
|AAHhh I haven't seen this girl in three years. (We were college roommates). We finally got to meet up in Colorado and visit for a bit at Cafe Rio. It was so fun. She got to meet Carly and Emma.|
|Our matching pajamas! I was so excited for us to wear these Christmas morning!!!|
Our presents from Jim & Heidi. Jeremy got ties, t shirts, and a picture of Lion King, and Coco motion. I got some shirts and a balloon making book with balloons (Jeremy hates balloons).
|Talon in shorts and Carly all bundled up on Christmas day playing with Shasta.|
|Emma loved when Shasta would lick her feet. She giggled.|
|Emma playing tug-o-war with Shasta.|
|Jeremy and I went to Las Tortugas and ordered a Huerfanita Torta with jalepeno and chipotle with some horchata to drink. It was SOOO good.|
|We travel in style. Carly would yell "bright!" and we would put her sunglasses on.|
|Emma loved playing with the lunchable container. Thanks Grandpa for the lunchables! |
They were a huge hit.
