Blame it on the rain...

So, my friend Penny has corporate lift tickets for Sundance. We scheduled the date weeks in advance and hoped that we would have fresh snow when the date arrived. Well... not only did we NOT have fresh snow, but we had RAIN! Ya, it was crazy... if you have never boarded in rain, you need to try it! JUST KIDDING. Luckily for us, it didn't cost us any $$! I havn't been in a year, so I spent the first couple runs trying to remember if I rode goofy foot, or regular. Once I got that figured out, I didn't eat it quite as much. When I got home, I could litterally ring water out of my pants, gloves, jacket, and hat.

Rob in tights!

Oh Halloween... we love to dress up! We have yet to live up to our favorite costume from like 7 years ago where Rob was 'Almond Joy' and I was 'Mounds' and on Rob's back it said "I have nuts" and my back said "I don't". Mind you all the letters involved were hand cut out of black felt! Anyway, Rob and I were originally going to be Elsa and Carter, but when the kitchen re-model started Oct. 1st and I did not have the time or energy to sew us some matching gingham smocked outfits, that idea was out... then Rob and I were going to dress up like each other (since at the time we had the same hair cut/style--cause Rob copied me!) and I was going to get Rob some skinny jeans and flats, but that was out because we were going to be at the church carnival, and Rob said that we shouldn't cross dress at church. So Peter Pan, Wendy (with bleach blond hair!), Tinkerbell(modern funky version), and Captain Hook it was...

let it snow!

A couple of weeks ago it snowed for like 2 days straight, O.k., maybe it was only like 1, but it seemed like forever, and Elsa and Carter were able to sled on 6- 8 foot piles of snow right in front of our house! Pretty cool daily activity for a kid! I had high hopes to build an igloo or a snow fort--- but that didn't work so well... I think I need to do some more research on that! I'm open for tips and/or suggestions...
