Yaya and Gigi

It was a blessing to see Yaya and Gigi a few days after Christmas. My Grandma (Gigi) was visiting from South Carolina so she and my mom came down to the Springs to stay a night and hang out with us. They were able to come watch Avery at her "play& learn" class at Gymboree. Thanks to my Mom, we signed Avery up for five consecutive weeks of classes at Gymboree. We have completed all five classes, but she absolutely loved it. It was such a nice activity for her and challenged her in many ways. We are now looking to start her in Gymnastics!

Sophie always enjoyed the class too!
She kicked with excitement with all the music and dancing we did.

Avery is a great climber!

I love this photo of Avery and Yaya because I see such a resemblance in their faces!

Last weekend the girls and I went up to Greeley to hang out with my Mom for a night. We hadn't been up there since July, so it was way overdue for us to make a trip up there! It was wonderful to spend more time with Yaya!

We took the girls to the park at my Mom's school. It was freezing out so it was quick, but it was fun to get outside! Sophie stayed warm and cozy! I just love her beautiful big blue eyes!

Happy Birthday Dad!

My Dad's birthday is the day after Christmas, so we usually make it up to Denver to celebrate with him. The girls always love going to Grandpa and Grandma's house! We also got to see Auntie Ash and Auntie Maddie, so it was fun to see everyone! I meant to get a photo of my Dad with the girls, unfortunately that didn't happen!

Happy Birthday Dad, we love you very much!

The girls had to soak up some Auntie Ash love, we aren't going to see her for awhile. She is headed to California for her internship.

Christmas 2011

Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating Jesus' birth with your family and friends! We had a great time celebrating with our little family of four and also seeing a lot of family over the week of Christmas.

Gabe worked Christmas eve and day, so we stayed close to home. We attended a Christmas eve service with Gabe's parents. It was a beautiful service and the girls did outstanding! Avery even got my attention during worship to tell me she had to go potty (our big news for the Christmas season, more later). It was such a delight to attend church all together! I will forever love singing "Silent Night" to candle light. So powerful!

Christmas morning we woke up early to eat waffles and open presents with the girls before Gabe went into work. It was so fun to watch them open gifts together as sisters. Thankfully Gabe didn't have to work very long because we spent the rest of the day lounging around in our pj's.

Christmas night we met Gabe's parents at the Broadmoor for dinner, which was wonderful. The Broadmoor is so beautifully decorated at Christmas time. Thank you for letting us join you for a wonderful Christmas dinner.

The post is definitely overloaded with photos, but I want to remember these sweet memories and our first Christmas with TWO girlies! And of course, the photos are backwards...

Gabe wanted to show his parents where he proposed to me just over 5 years ago. It was freezing cold and the girls were both having meltdowns, but it was sweet to revisit that special spot!

Avery loved looking at this beautiful display of gingerbread houses!

Gabe was having the girls wrestle one another...
