Vacation time!

As I was getting ready to head out to Colorado I grabbed a few pictures of the kids sleeping at Grandma's before I left.
 So with that we were on our way to the airport, four days with no kids. They were missed but we had a great time visiting our cousins in Denver.

This was our first day of skiing in Colorado. This was my first time skiing out west. It sure is a bit bigger than Welch. LOL I have skied quite a bit this year with our Welch season pass so I thought I would be some what ready for what was in store but I was wrong! It was crazy and fun after I got over the elevation sickness and pounded back a bloody mary.

 Crist and Matt decided to spend Sunday cooking. They were making homemade pudding for the cream puffs they made on Friday night. Yes, they made cream puffs on a Friday night.

 Cooking plus a few of these result in this.......

 So cute in their aprons don't you think!
 Or maybe a little crazy! I wish Matt lived closer so they could bake together more often.
 Sunday for the dogs was a little more relaxed:)
And not to be forgotten the awesome little girl who shared her wonderful parents with us all weekend! Thank you Matt, Jenna and Story for a great Colorado weekend!

To the Science Fair we go!

Check out my smarty pants! She won at the science fair and is now on to the Regional Science Fair. She tested laundry detergents to see which one took out stains the best.

She is so happy and excited for the Regional Competition in Mankato this April. One of the best parts is we get to get away for the night with some of our favorite cousins Kari and Eva. Eva won from the 3rd grade! Congrats Autumn!!
