thanksgiving highlights

Here is a little picture recap of our Thanksgiving. We spent the week in Colorado. Some of us went mountain bowling and by that I mean skiing. Others stayed home due to some ankle problems caused by running in order to be in shape for skiing.

That's several hours of my time I'll never get back, but I'm not bitter.

We had an absolute BLAST! The outlet mall a mile from our condo may or may not have had something to do with it. Ok, that was really just an added bonus. We always have fun when we get to spend time with Luke's side of the family. Best. In-laws. Ever!! We love them and here's the proof:

These 2 won the ugly sweater contest.

Like my friend Andrea said: Scarred. For. Life. And yes this is a woman's sweater from Goodwill. Consider this picture my Christmas gift to you. You're welcome.

I guess Austin didn't get the memo that we were taking a picture. Oh well. I still love him more than words can say...even in this horrendous sweater.

The boys before our sleigh ride.

The whole family. So fun and SO cold!!

Love my little family!

My boys. They never fail to make me laugh.

Such a good picture of these 2!

The 3 amigos. :)

This picture makes me thankful for 2 things: hot chocolate before sleigh rides in FREEZING weather and a brother that makes us laugh even when we can't feel our lips. :)

Absolutely LOVE her. This picture is already framed in my kitchen.

The fam on the gondola ride. I accidently downloaded the wrong one of the 3 of us, which means I'm gonna hear about this later from Luke. Ooops, sorry!

Sweet boy just taking it all in

Our gondola partners

Before the sleigh ride. Austin had a RIDICULOUS amount of layers on. We call that Paranoid Mom around here.

Singing to us at the dinner table. This is how the song went: "Grammy! Grammy! Grammy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!" etcetera and so on and so forth. All I have to say is due to his amazing talent for songwriting, Luke and I have decided that he is our retirement plan. Oh, I kid...sort of.

One of the many reasons I love her. Yes, she's sitting in Austin's carseat.

Grammy and her number one fan. :)

View from the gondola. Please excuse the scratches.

On the plane and super excited about "Codorado" as Austin calls it.

See? He was pumped!!

Despite the fact that my camera totally failed me at this moment, I still love this picture of my boys. There is no one else I would rather travel with than these two.

This is the kind of view we enjoyed all week.

There you have it. The highlights of our week in the mountains. If you're thinking it looks amazing then you would be correct. We can't wait to go back. :)
