Josh!

An old buddy of Brandon's who lives in Florida took his soon-to-be fiance on a road trip through New Mexico and Colorado. They stopped here and spent two fun-filled evenings with us. ♥ We hope they come back soon!

Brandon and Josh grew up together in Florida and it was fun to hear them talk about the old days. ;) Anna, his soon-to-be fiance was great! ~ Kaitlin even named one of her dolls "Anna". So cute. ♥

March for Babies - 2010

In all the craziness with the new house, I haven't taken the time to post this. For the third year in a row, Brandon and I are planning to participate in the March for Babies 5 mile walk on April 24, 2010.

NEW HOME!

We officially live in a new home! So far, we absolutely love it!

As I type this, I'm sitting at the kitchen table with the warm sun on my back. I hate being cold so this warmth is like heaven. (Brandon on the other hand keeps saying we need to turn the A/C on!)

The girls have their own rooms, and have adjusted perfectly.

I ran my first load of laundry in our new front loading HE washer and the timer told me the load would take 107 minutes to wash!!! I need to play with the settings more and figure out how to get laundry done quicker. I know there's a way.

We love the giant pantry and all the cabinet space... now we just need more STUFF to fill it! Maybe a new set of mixing bowls is in order. ;)

I think Charlie is really homesick for the old house. But, Kasper checked out every nook and cranny and seems to be satisfied with the new digs.

All in all, everything's good! We're busy unpacking and organizing and making trip after trip to Target/Walmart/Lowe's to pick up things we need.

I'll post some pictures soon. ♥

Beauty and The Beast - Colorado Ballet

I found tickets to the Colorado Ballet's performance of Beauty and the Beast, so Kaitlin and I went last Sunday afternoon.

(Zoey stayed home with Daddy.)



After we got downtown and picked up our tickets, Kaitlin and I went to lunch at Sam's No 3.
We both ordered breakfast for lunch and played at least a full 20 minutes of "I Spy".


Kaitlin could hardly wait for the ballet to start! As we walked to the opera house after lunch, Kaitlin pointed out all the little girls dressed up in pretty dresses and guessed that they were going to the ballet too. ;)


We walked around and looked at all the ballerina statues while we waited for the doors to open. Kaitlin l♥ved it!


Here's a quick video I took during one of the intermissions:

Kaitlin and I had a great afternoon and I definitely wish we could do this more often!
