I am blessed with the most amazing people in my life. And twice a year I get to escape the chaos of the mama life to the mountains with a group of some of those amazing people.
Where I don't have snot on my clothes or have to yell at people to potty and put on their shoes fifteen times. Or wipe any bums. Or practice sight words. It's glorious.
We spend 3 days visiting, playing games, making jewelry, hiking, sitting in a hot tub, eating good food, and watching chick flicks.
It keeps me sane. I'm a strong believer in the need for a break every now and then. A freshing, restful break. It makes me a better mama.
Then I got distracted and picked up a couple other things.
The struggle is real people.
So Colorado went from summer to winter in a day. Typical.
Love kiddos all bundled up in winter gear.
Don't love below zero temps.
BUT snowy weather calls for Snowy Jamberries and red cups!
This scruffy guy kinda blends in with the snow.
Love that dog.
Ab had a turkey to save from Thanksgiving dinner.
It was one fugly turkey. We had a serious job ahead of us.
$50 snow boots.
Good thing he is cute.
This is Ab chillin in the car loop waiting to pick up the big kids.
Because right side up is boring.
Ab said, "Mom, I drew a picture of you! As a cat ice skating."
Tis the season for making festive banners and garlands!
Cue the sleigh bells!
CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
Word. Have a fab weekend!
