Christmas 2010

For Christmas, my brother, Trent and his family, Wendy, Noah, Jonah and Isaac, came to Colorado. Once they had good enough weather to drive, they made it! We all had a great time, and Cole was so happy to have other people to play with.

We went to our traditional movie on Christmas Eve. We took Cole and Isaac to see Tangled. Cole only last for about half the movie and then Jon took him home. I think the singing didn't hold his attention! I, on the other hand, really liked it!

Then we headed home for dinner. Instead of our traditional fondue dinner, we had a Raclette dinner. We had T & W bring theirs and combined with ours, we had enough space for everyone to melt their cheese and cook their food. IT WAS TASTY!

Cole loved Christmas this year. He caught on to Isaac's enthusiasm for opening gifts and I think liked Isaac's presents more than his own!

He got to play in the snow and loved to follow Isaac around.

Did I mention how much he loves his Uncle Trent?

Jon passed his 3rd Test!

In early December, Jon passed his 3rd of four tests for his QKA certification at work. He diligently studied every morning for months and it paid off! We are VERY proud of him! Only one more to go!

Zoo Lights

We went to see the Zoo Lights this year with Faye, Arn, Joseph and Robin. It was a nice night, so we were excited. After an awesome dinner at a shady McDonalds, we headed to the Zoo. When we went up to pay, they told us that it was closed for a private company party. But we had checked the website and it had no mention of the closure. Long and short, 2 other families showed up around the same time. One of the other ladies demanded that since there was nothing on the website, that we all be let in. IT WORKED! It was awesome because there was NO ONE there and we didn't have to pay! We had a great time! You can see how much Cole loves to be with his cousin Joseph!

Uncle Robin was the favorite that night!
