We were blessed to spend our first Colorado Thanksgiving down in Castle Rock with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law Mike and Rachel, our nieces Aubrey and Ainsley, and some friends of Mike and Rachel's, Jay and Jenna, and their little girl Laina. Two comments about this picture: first, I need to take off my (tall) shoes before standing in a picture with people who AREN'T wearing ANY shoes. You know, so I don't look like a GIANT. Second, look at how Biniam and sweet little Ainsley are totally smiling at each other! SO CUTE! My kids love their cousins!
There was SO much wonderful food, and a good time was had by all. Here's the day in pictures:
This is the apple pie I baked, my first-ever.
The kids outside our house before we left. I love this picture.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving, we set out to run some errands and went out to lunch, partially to celebrate me getting my sense of taste back (remember, I'd had a sinus infection). We took pictures, not sure why. But here they are.
The kids on our street. They love snow. Possibly more than anything!
Me and Kaitlyn--SO cute drinking out of a straw!

So that was our first holiday in Denver. We had a blast and it is so neat to think that my kids are actually building relationships with their cousins and aunt and uncle. When we all still lived in California we never did holidays together really, so it's been pretty neat.
Now if I can just find the camera cord for our NEW camera, I can upload THOSE pictures and maybe get you caught up on our life a little bit! Oh and does anyone else feel like any time they go to Chili's, they're stepping right into an episode of The Office????
