First 14er












Magnolia and I did our first 14er this weekend...which means we went to the top of a mountain that was above 14,000 feet! We went on the highest paved road in North America and then climbed a bit to reach the top. The climb and scenery once we reached the top was spectacular. If you are wondering just how high we were check out the clouds! We were truly almost in them! Amazing! The part that I did not enjoy was the drive, it was very scary! At one point I had tears in my eyes! Magnolia on the other hand thought it was really fun and was not phased by the fact that we were on very steep/winding/bumpy roads that were inches from falling off the side of the mountain! :)
We also have a new photographer in our family. Magnolia has been really into taking pictures and we have posted 2 of them in this post. The one of just me and the one of David and I were taken by our little munchkin!

First Day Of School









Magnolia had her first day of preschool today and it was VERY successful! David woke her up and she was happy and ready to go! She asked for a special breakfast so she got to have waffles on a fancy plate. Then off to school we went! David went to work late so that he could drop her off with me. She was all smiles and had no problems when we left. When I picked her up she was very happy and said she had a great time. Then she said "ask me if I enjoyed myself." So, I asked if she enjoyed herself and she said "Oh yes mom, I really did!" So cute! She then said "what was your favorite part of doing your mommy work when I was at school?" Ha she is so darn funny! I am SO very happy that she had a great first day of school!

Grandpa's trip to the dentist


My dad flew out for a day last week to sit in David's dental chair for a few hours. Magnolia and I only got to see him for a few weeks but we made the most of it! Next time I think he might need to stay a bit longer!

Fancy Nancy Magnonlia





Magnolia LOVES the Fancy Nancy books and here is pretending she is Fancy Nancy. I think she has on 4 tutus, 2 hats, 2 crowns, bunny ears, a fairy dress and of course a purple boa. I am pretty sure she is even more adorable than Fancy Nancy!

Our little sushi lover







You know, David and I have often talked about what our "normal" foods were as kids and how different they are than Magnolia's "normal" foods. Sushi is definitely at the top of the list. I dont think that I ever had sushi until I was in my mid 20's and here is Magnolia loving it at age 3! Dont worry, she only eats veggie sushi, no raw fish for this munchkin!

Girl with style


Here is an outfit that Magnolia picked out on her own. (Yes, those are snow boots on her feet, and yes it was about 95 degrees when she wore this!)

Abella, Pappa and Grammy




We had a very exciting week this past week. We had our niece Isabella (Magnolia shortened her name a bit and called her "Abella") and David's parents here. We did a ton of fun stuff and were pretty darn busy the whole time. We went to Boulder, went to an old mine and panned for gold, went to Breckenridge, and the aquarium. Magnolia also got to ride a train with Abella and one with pappa. She also got to fly her kite with them. Magnolia had a ton of fun getting to know her cousin and asks everyday when she is coming back. (I must admit, I hope she comes back again soon!) Isabella, thank you so much for coming out and being such an awesome cousin and niece! We love you!
