Things that we enjoy we repeat and they quickly become "traditions". This is the case with the Live Nativity at the Downtown Harvest Church. Corinna was amazed with all the animals, and Elise couldn't wait to hold Baby Jesus.
We've had a busy couple of weeks getting ready for Christmas. First we had a Christmas party with our Bible Study. Yesterday we went to church with Sarah & family. Elise was an angel in the Christmas play. Now of course we think she is an angel all the time, (like all of our Grandchildren) but isn't that a Grandparents privilege?
We had a very different but fun Thanksgiving this year. We joined Matt, Naomi, Rocket & Roxanne for a trip to the Denver aquarium, and then we went to Buca Di Beppa's for dinner. And no we didn't have turkey but enjoyed the food tremendously at the restaurant. So today I am cooking a turkey breast in the crockpot, we have to have some leftovers for a turkey sandwich. Aalthough this wasn't a "traditional" Thanksgiving we are very thankful that we did spend some time with family, and enjoyed every minute of it. And here are a few of our favorite photos from the day.
These are the views form Halloween this year. The sky was a beautiful color backdrop for trick or treaters. Corinna wore herself out walking all around for trick or treat this year. She also loved to answer the door and give out the candy. It was one of hte better years for Halloween, just a little cold, but no snow, unusual for Colorado.
It all started because I said that we needed new carpet. Then we decided to paint before we got new carpet. So we spent our "weekend" painting. Today we got all the living room, hallway and entrance way done. Tomorrow we will do the trim work and put everything back. I know it looks like Gary is doing most of the painting, but really we both worked hard. He would do the cutting in and I would follow with the roller. We even had offers from Elise & Corinna to help today but we passed on that idea. We painted the two tone tan a solid tan, and the white walls we left white, so it really doesn't look much different, just clean and fresh.
Today is Corinna's birthday - one year old. So here are a couple of our latest pictures of her and her wonderful family. More pictures will come this weekend when we have her birthday celebration. Happy Birthday little girl
Yesterday was very hot at the beach - almost 90. With no clouds in the sky we knew it would be a great sunset. We were able to sit on the beach in shorts and not be cold and watch the sunset. This was a first for us.
Teach me your way, O LORD and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O LORD my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. Psalm 86: 11-13
