Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

I'm very happy to be sitting here wracking my brain on what to write for our Christmas blog this year. You see, this is the first year that nothing major has happened in the last six and a half years! No new jobs, we're in our fourth year in our house, no new babies or new vehicles... this year has been relatively uneventful on the "big things" scale and I can't complain. I'll stick with a quick recap of us and then bombard you with family pictures!

Tim has been with Coors for six years now and is helping his dad with his business in Canon City when he can. This summer he got to go backpacking and ride his motorcycle with friends more than he has any other year since we've been married. I think he really enjoyed that time!

Karoline started a pre-k program in the September. She goes to school two days a week for three hours a day. She enjoys the routine and having somewhere to go. She's learning so much so fast. At home we are working our way through 100 learn to read lessons. It is amazing to watch her learn. I know that all the pieces are there. Before I know it she is going to be sounding out words and reading to me! We are in the process of trying to get her into the Classical Academy that our church (Flatirons, it's amazing, join me any time) is starting next fall. 

She's an great big sister. Lately she will help me fold laundry, clean up her room and get her sister ready for the day without being asked. She is such a precious girl and I could go on and on about her. I'll save that for her birthday post, I can't believe she is already 4.5!

Where to start with Alexandra? I love this thing she does when she's really focusing and stringing sentences together. She gets a really serious look on her face and her voice gets nasaly. I've tried over and over to record her doing it but it must just be meant for me because I have yet to capture it. She's fiercely independent but my snuggle buddy just the same. She's 2.5 and is interested in everything that her sister is doing. Her hair is still super short and I love it. It keeps her looking little for longer!

I am still working part-time, from home, for Bolder Band. It's a great fit for where we are in life and I'm thankful to work for such a wonderful company. I have also started watching a little one 1-2 days a week. Her name is Eliza, she's a sweetie and fits in so well when she is with us. We enjoy having her around. This fall I was selected to write as a contributor to the Denver Metro Moms Blog. I would love for you to let me know what you think of my first post about becoming a runner!
