Breckenridge, Colorado

We made it home injury free! We had a wonderful time skiing and spending time with some of Tripp's co-workers. This was Tripp's first time to ski, and I think he's addicted! His first run down a green slope he fell well over 15 times... but he just got right up and kept trying. After that he really got the hang of it. I was shocked how quickly it came back to me after not skiing for 10 years. I guess it's just like riding a bike. We were also there for my birthday, which was a nice treat. I took it easy on Friday and went to the spa... happy b-day to me! Tripp also took me out to a sushi bar that night. We had a great time but our "old" bodies are pretty sore!

Disney 08

In case we haven't shared with you all of our 600+ pictures from Disney, here are a few of the highlights. It was a wonderful and very memorable vacation for all three of us. Caitlin says she would like to go back in January. Well, maybe we will go back, just not quite that soon.


We went for our annual visit to the Santa Clause at Old Hickory Mall today. He really is the best Santa I've ever seen! Caitlin loved him so much. He gave her two candy canes and told her she had been extra good this year. She is convinced that she really has been better than all the other kids in the world- HAHA- yeah right! We wrote a letter addressed to the North Pole so that he won't forget all the things she "needs". I was really pleased with the picture this year so I thought I would share. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season as much as we are.

The World Through Caitlin's Eyes

Some of you may know or already been a victim of Caitlin's new hobby. Her Pop and Nanna gave her a Tinker Bell Digital Camera for her birthday. She loves to take pictures or have you take her picture with her camera. So for the first time ever, I bring you the world through Caitlin's eyes. (Coming soon- Disney through Caitlin's eyes!)

20 Days and Counting

I have some of the best memories of my childhood around the holidays. One thing that I always remember doing was making a paper chain of rings to countdown the days until Christmas. Caitlin is so excited about going to Disney (so are Tripp & I), I decided to make a chain to count the days until we leave. She loves it! We had picture day at school last Thursday and she picked out her own outfit. She was so proud I took her picture... with the chain of course. Thought I would share some of these cute pics.

Disney Here We Come!

She is all ready for Disney World!

The birthday WEEK has finally come to an end! I cannot believe our baby is already 4. We had so much fun celebrating this week with friends and family. On Tuesday we woke Caitlin up a little early and gave her a present from Mommy and Daddy. Tripp had to leave town on a business trip that morning so we had to start celebrating early. We all went to Cracker Barrel for birthday breakfast.

Caitlin had a party at her preschool after lunch time. I took a cupcake cake for all of her class. She loved all the attention she got for being the "birthday girl". We love Ms. Audrey and Ms. Joyce and all of the children in her class. We left school a little early to head to gymnastics. After class Caitlin had a friends party at Chuck E. Cheese. She had a blast! I am pretty sure the other little girls had fun too... that is until Chuck E. Cheese scarred the living daylights out of half the party. Lets just say giant mice are not friendly looking to some- HAHA!

Finally on Saturday we had family over to our house for cake and ice cream. It was great to see everyone and get to visit on such a gorgeous day. We had fun... but I must admit I am a little tired of cake at this point! Thanks everyone who made Caitlin's birthday so special, we are very lucky to have such great family and friends!
