Breckenridge, CO

A huge thanks to the Drott's, they blessed us with a few days stay up in Breckenridge this week. We stayed at the Hyatt right on Main Street, it was a very nice hotel and room! This mini vacation was perfect timing since Gabe just finished his football season and starts his wrestling season next week. We definitely needed some time away as a family! It was wonderful to create some new family memories. We took Avery sledding, Avery and Daddy had a blast in the outdoor hot tub ( it was only 30 degrees outside), we ate some great food, played in the snow and just hung out in front of the fire in our hotel room with yummy Starbucks drinks!
I will let the photos do the rest of the talking...

Daddy was cracking her up...

She loved jumping in to Daddy!

She wasn't a huge fan of sledding. I hadn't gone sledding in years...it was a lot of fun! Please ignore my loud commentary on this video!

Too busy playing in the snow for a photo...

Little Pumpkin!

For Halloween, we took Avery trick-or-treating for the first time. She really got a hang of it and had fun! She was the cutest little pumpkin we have ever seen! She started saying trick-or-treat which was very cute! She stopped mid way to check out what kind of candy she had in her pumpkin. Gabe had to work all night since New Life had a family movie night, but he was able to sneak away for a short time so we could take her to a few houses.
We also took her to the church to eat dinner and play in the jump houses. They had a toddler room, so they were the perfect size for her. She had a blast jumping around! She watched about ten minutes of Monsters Inc. too, but she was tired from all the jumping!
On a side note, Avery took quite the spill in the morning ( or was throwing a fit) and cut right outside of her eye on our bed frame...you might be able to see her boo boo! That was her first time to bleed from an injury! Poor girl. Thankfully its healing up pretty quickly!
