Colorado Christmas 2011...

We made our annual trip to the cabin after Christmas and this year The Simmons and The Brazeals joined us! Since the kiddos were with us we didn't do much, but we really had a great time hanging out and enjoying the beautiful mountain views!

We finally made it after a long day of travel....the girls/kiddos flew and the boys drove all of our stuff! Corinne had an awesome dinner ready for us when we arrived!
Babies asleep, monitors out! So happy to be at the cabin!
Good morning...
And hello deer...lots of deer!
Lucy was in deer heaven....or "dog" heaven. She was a little confused.

Here's the video proof....actually, everything/everyone is a dog right now...even me! ;)


A few of the deer would eat straight out of our hands!
Big buck...
Lucy and dad on the porch...
Corinne decked the house out for Christmas...it really looked beautiful!
Opening presents...Lucy knew exactly what to do!
She loves her xylophone!
And I was super excited about her North Face Fleece...Lucy, not so much. She really doesn't like wearing jackets right now.
Owen and Larkin got presents too! Owen was a big fan of PaPa Billy and Nana...it was so funny! He asked for them all of the time and followed them all around the house!
Family shot...
We did a lot of this...
And a lot of playing! Lucy and Owen loved the tent that Papa Billy and Nana gave Owen...
Owen was so sweet towards Larkin and Lucy! Kisses for Larkin...
And hugs for Lucy!
The girls + Larkin...
Playing the snow!! The weather was beautiful while we were there...actually pretty mild for December. We didn't get any snow, but there was a lot on the ground!
Lucy had fun walking in it!
Snow bunnies...
The Simmons Fam...
Owen feeding the deer...
Lucy could not get enough of the deer...
She had a lot of fun playing in the feed...
How cute is that hat?! My mom got it for Lucy for our trip. Lucy really doesn't like wearing hats, but she was so consumed with the deer that I was able to sneak it on her a few times!
Family pics on the back deck...
Chris, Owen and Marina...
Larkin, Elizabeth and Jordan...
Group shot! What a fun trip....lots of fun memories made for sure!

Your trip looks amazing! We didn't get to go to CO this year so I am living vicariously through all my friends who did!!! The deer are amazing! I can't believe they just come right up to you like that! That's better than the zoo!
