Ski Bunny

Thanks to Grandpa Bill, Grandma Kay, my Nana and Papa - I was fully outfitted this Christmas for my future adventures in skiing and sledding. Check out my adorable ski bunny style!

During the week between Christmas and New Years, momma packed up the car and took me and Luke up to Aspen for a fun filled week. Highlights of the week included a nightly performance (starring myself, with Luke and Ryder as my co-horts), hanging out in downtown Aspen, and my first ever experience going to ski school! I LOVED ski school and have been begging to go back.

Unfortunately, we had another "first" on this trip: Luke's first trip to the ER. It was just for an ear infection and high fever, but the nearest Urgent Care was almost 45 minutes away so we just ran down the road to Aspen Valley Hospital instead. Aunt Lisa is an ER nurse there so we were treated like royalty...and this little guy was a real champ :)

Christmas 2012!

We had a great Christmas this year!! I was SO into Santa and everything Christmas-related :) Santa gave me the three things I asked for (a charm bracelet, a Jasmine costume, and a KooKoo bird).

We celebrated with mommy's side of the family with a great Christmas Eve celebration in Boulder....

And then spent Christmas Day at Nana and Papa's house with daddy's side of the family.

Do you like the Christmas outfits that Nana and Papa got us?

It truly was a wonderful Christmas. The best part was celebrating it with this guy!

Christmas Recital

With my dance recital jitters now behind me, I was all ready to go for my Christmas performance at school this year. My first year's recital was a disaster...last year was much better...and this year, I would have to say I was the star of my class. I was dead center, ALL about the singing and hand movements, and enjoyed every second of applause from the very full room of parents.

Dancing Queen

I've been in ballet classes all fall and recently had my first ballet recital. I was a little bit nervous at the start, but soon warmed up and enjoyed the performance. By the time we left, I was already begging for when the next recital is!

Meet and Greet

I've been a bad cousin by neglecting to introduce you to the two new additions to our family! Please join me in welcoming Izzy Mae (born to Aunt Lisa) and Henry (born to Aunt Maggie)! We've gotten plenty of love and snuggle time with both of them, and the pictures to prove it! I can't wait to spend years and years loving on my new cousins!!
