Favorite Words

Erin's favorite words lately......
mommy, mama, mommy, mama
weeee! weeee! weeee!
hot (in a whisper)

She has mastered walking backwards in the last couple of days, until she runs into something ;) Her absolute favorite thing to do is help us carry the laundry basket to and from the laundry room.....oh and take clothes in and out of the laundry basket. What a good helper she is!

Christmas 2010

Get ready for lots of photos! This Christmas was a busy one (in a very good way). Erin was surrounded by loved ones for over 2 weeks, so I think she is going to get very bored now that she is just stuck with me. Bob's brother, Pat, and his family came out to visit Colorado Springs the week before Christmas. Erin LOVED hanging out with her play buddies and was slightly obsessed with her cousin, Cullen. We even made it up to Breckenridge for a quick day of skiing, where Erin fell in love with the snow.

After one day of rest, we headed up to Castle Rock for a McGregor family Christmas. Everyone came back this year, which means 8 grandchildren in one house! Erin was in heaven. Poor Gregory....he is the closest in age to Erin and could not escape her. We had a wonderful Christmas with family and Santa was good to all the kids :)

After heading back home for one day to do laundry and pack again, we drove up to Breckenridge to celebrate the New Year with good friends and cold skiing. Thanks to our friend Julie, we were able to ski 3 days (although 2 of those were only half days with the freezing temperatures). Enjoy the many, many pictures! We hope everyone had blessed and happy holiday season. 2010 has been good to us, welcome 2011!
