A Colorado Christmas!

After the Santa excitement at our house, we loaded ourselves into our already loaded van and headed to Colorado to spend the rest of our week with the COOLEST Uncle I think we could ask for, Uncle Jon.  The van was packed full with our stuff, us, Nana and Piper but it was pretty smooth sailing if ya ask me.  Dada did most of the driving and Nana was in full time kid-pleaser mode in the back seat.  I tried to start out the trip sitting in the back, but after the first failed roadside pee-stop at Paige's request, Paige insisted that Nana sit in the back.  Poor Nana never made it back to the front. 

We made it to Uncle Jon's house in great time!  Once we arrived, Owen and Paige you guys ran around his fun, big house like little maniacs.  We spent the first night bellied up to the bar, setting up camp for our 4 day stay, and talking and playing with Uncle Jon and cousins Cameron and Derek.

On Thursday we took our time getting ready and shuffling around the house like a group of people with nowhere to be.  It was nice.  Later that night, our Papaw arrived and we celebrated Christmas together which included a yummy steak dinner and opening presents.  It was a lovely night!

The next two days included a trip to a train museum in Greeley, dinner with some very nice folks, Joe and Denay, that we have come to know over the years, and an adult night out for dinner and drinks.  Cameron lucked out and you both napped for several hours of his babysitting shift.
