A Break in Posting

To all of our family and friends, and loyal readers: We're taking a break from our blog and from posting on a regular basis. We're finding that being parents is absolutely wonderful, and our time is filled by loving on and taking care of a precious little one. And both of us having full time jobs that we love and look forward to every morning, brings us great joy, but too, keeps us very busy. We won't be carving out time to blog and post regularly anymore, but we do look forward to seeing you soon and chatting by phone and email. Love you lots, C & S & A

Papa in Denver

Dad spent a wonderful week with us in Denver and I know I have said it a dozen times, but he is able to accomplish more in one day than Chris and I do over the course of several months. We asked him to come out last week (on a whim) because we were expecting warm weather and we were needing to finish the north side of our house (exterior) because we're under contract on a new house. *more on that later* We had several projects on the "to-do-before-we-sell" list that immediately moved to the top of our "to-do" now that we're under contract. After we close, we'll move out and then put our place on the market, which is very bittersweet to say the least!

Anyway, here are a few shots from dad's week in Denver. It doesn't look like we took any photos of the actual house projects though, the little one in our life seems to be the center of our attention these days :)

A much needed update - celebrating our 5th anniversary together in the month of November. We were lucky enough that my parents were in Colorado over Thanksgiving weekend so we were able to sneak away to the mountains while Amelia stayed with Nana. I can't believe 5 years have flown by so fast, and my have we packed a lot into our first 5 years of marriage. I can only hope that we have are able to enjoy the next 5 years as much as we have enjoyed the first 5. 

Dinner with Chad & Michelle at the Melting Pot - Celebrating #5 for both of us. This date night at the Melting Pot has become an annual tradition!

Weekend in the mountains, at a little bed and breakfast in a quaint town. Shopping, delicious dinner, and lots of great wine... We've been saving this bottle of Ptarmigan Cab Sauv for several years so we were pretty excited to finally get to pop it open, and it was delicious!

Indoor Skydiving

To celebrate our friend Dave's 30th birthday, Chris and Dave went indoor skydiving. They had a great time and from what we could tell from the outside, it looked like fun! We also had a delicious dinner at a Western Trail steakhouse out in rural Colorado, southeast of Denver. The man cooking the steaks was wearing cowboy boots and a cowboy hat - which has to be a sign the steak is going to be good, right?

Photo Update for Month 6

She has discovered swinging at the park and LOVES it!

Amelia can't hardly stand to be on her back anymore, she LOVES to be on her stomach. She'll even roll over to her stomach with her bottle, it's pretty funny to watch, not a very efficient way to drink a bottle!

Again, has to be on her stomach! Begs the question, "how do you change a baby diaper when they are on their stomach?" Get creative!

She has discovered how to pull the sun shade down so she can peak at you driving the car, very sneaky little one!

She loves to put anything and everything in her mouth, coffee cups included!

She sits in a high chair when we go out to eat, like a big girl!
