White Christmas

We had a fabulous Christmas week with almost all of our family here visiting! We did lots of fun stuff like touring the Coors Brewery, seeing the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, going to an Avalanche game, a day at the mountains to ski/snowboard/hang out, watching sports & good Christmas movies, eating lots of good food, sledding, shoveling snow, making snow ice cream (no joke!!), etc.The whole gang- according to Gigi: Uncle Paul, Reuben, Aunt Stacey, Papa, Yaya, Peter, Granpa, Granny, Mommy, Daddy, Me, Aunt Carly, Unc A, & Tia.

We even had a white Christmas! In fact, it snowed all day long-- more than it has snowed on December 25th in over 100 years! It was beautiful! Our friends the Stopniks came over for Christmas dinner and we enjoyed the Honey-Baked Ham that my Aunt Laurel & Uncle Joe sent us (thanks!). It was a little crowded (i.e. kids' "picnic" on the kitchen floor for dinner) but totally worth it.Gigi enjoyed her first Christmas-- doing a little paper-ripping on her gifts and best of all, hanging out with her grandparents, aunts, uncles & cousins!!
We are so grateful for our family and for their trip out here; we had a great time.

I hope you enjoy looking at all our December photos (most of them are from the week when everyone was here- but they also include cookie-making with the Stoppies & hanging out with some old college friends here in CO)! Click here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/bennettars/sets/72157603591473096/
