Hi, friends. I have been MIA.....the holidays were a bit of a blur, but I am now back to work after having the last nearly 2 weeks off (which was LOVELY!)
We had a great Christmas and New Year's. My brother came to stay with us from Nashville and my parents came down from the mountains for Christmas. The kids had a blast and we enjoyed having family around (we refuse to travel at Christmas....I insist that we wake up in OUR house on Christmas morning ) The kids got an insane amount of gifts and I was pretty spoiled myself....yahoo!
Here's a pic of the kids doing yoga with my brother and mom the day before Christmas eve-- silly kids!
We then enjoyed a fairly quiet week at home (my parents went home and my brother went with them to their house....)
During that week we went to the zoo....since it has been really warm here. It was 60 degrees in Denver last week (and this week...) So it was great zoo weather.
Trey also took the kids to an indoor water park one day....but Lexi was puking that day, so I missed out (and didn't get any pictures )
Once Lexi was better, we went up to the mountains to visit my parents for NYE. We don't usually go there this time of year bc of the roads, but it has been so warm that there is no snow (this is a serious bummers for all of the holiday skiers who like to go ski Vail and Copper and Breckenridge.....)
While up in the mountains, we went to outdoor hot springs. Essentially there is a giant pool of 102 water and another one of 104 degree water. So even though the outdoor temperature was about 30 degrees, we spent hours outside swimming in the warm water. So fun. The kids love it. The big girls had a blast jumping off the diving board, and Lexi is convinced that she can swim (insists on taking off her float and trying to swim....silly kid!) We all got a bit sunburned, but it was fun.
This is Miles with my dad at the pool
We just got home yesterday (and the kids were tuckered out!)
Even better than all of our fun time away was that Trey stayed home from our trip and shampooed the carpeting in our entire house, and took down all of Christmas (even the outside lights!) It was heavenly to come home to such a clean house.....
What did ya'll do over the holidays? I can't be the only one who was busy, right?
