My Mom sent this the morning of the day we left...a little dusting just waiting for me!
She thought it was pretty sweet to be able to eat and walk around
Burning off some energy before we got on the plane by taking some laps with the stroller!
She loved playing with the seat belt and her laptop...
...and looking out the window
Watching a movie for the first part of the flight
We landed in Denver to this!!! SNOW!!! And lots of it!!!
We got to Wray around 2am and Evelyn finally fell asleep once she was in a crib. She slept in a little, then we went over to my sister's house for the big surprise!
We let ourselves in the house with my Mom's key and were greeted by my two nieces with confused looks on their faces and my sister saying, "what are you doing, dude?" Surprise! :-) We then called my brother-in-law and told him their laundry room was backing up again to get him to the house. He came home and Evelyn was playing in the room with Katie and Heidi (my nieces). It took him a minute, but he finally figured out it was her - then I came around the corner to say hi! So much fun to pull off big surprises!
"Baby Ko" and Evelyn calls him...such a sweetheart!
We had lunch at my favorite restaurant in Wray - La Familia.
We came home to take naps and make cookies. While Heidi and Evelyn napped, Ben was still at school, so Katie and I made pumpkin snicker doodles and caramel apple cider cookies. Yum!
Kolbe Joshua just hanging out!
Katie and I making our cookies
Me with my nieces and nephews!
Kolbe taking a nap...sweet boy
Evelyn liked climbing into Kolbe's bouncy seat
But she sure looks cute!
Evelyn liked the rocking chair in the lobby
Us with Grandma Uni
Grandma Uni gave them each some candy for Halloween...Evelyn's first sucker.
After naps, we had fun afternoon of playing. It was our last day in Colorado (it was a quick trip!). The kids all wore their matching Chattanooga Choo-Choo shirts that Grammie and Grandad got for them on their trip to Tennessee a few weeks ago.
Playing some cards and eating a snack
And Evelyn thought Grammie's wall needed some color (all down the wall - purple crayon)
The girls did some dancing...
Evelyn has started covering her mouth when she laughs. I don't know where she got it from, but it's really cute. It's even cuter because my Grammie (who Evelyn is named after) used to do this with the back of her hand to her mouth. Sometimes I think my Grammie is talking to Evelyn, teaching her some tricks on being Evelyn. Makes me smile.
Playing with some balls
Working on some ball handling skills...
I'm just going to take a little break, guys...
