A little Christmas fun...

We made Christmas ornaments...

Shaped like dinosaurs.

We tried to stay warm at Winterfest. Griffin loved all the lighted trees.

Griff loves books. 
 He's sure Diego will too.

 But, if a book doesn't make him happy, Griff will try to cheer him up with a gentle face stroke.
 And...a nose cleaning.
 And...a snuggle.
 Sweet brothers.

And now...he's two!

Griff had an amazing birthday. Thanks to all the family and friends who made his special day extra-special. We had a day full of dinos, treats, and thoughtful gifts. While the weather wasn't exactly what we had in mind, Griffin certainly wasn't fazed by it. He was thrilled with each person who walked through the door and so happy to show everyone his books and toys. It is so fun to have a two year-old and we're so thankful for everyone who was a part of the celebration.

Happy Birthday, Gigs!

Happy second birthday, my sweet boy! You've grown and changed so much over the last year. We are so proud of the little boy you're becoming. You are adventurous and outgoing. You love to climb and run and jump. You give us the best hugs. Your smiles are filled with joy. And, you fill us with joy. Whether you're talking about going to the beach, singing and banging on the piano, or pointing out dinosaurs everywhere we go, you are happiness in motion. I hope your new year is fun. I hope you become great buddies with Deo. I can't wait to hear all the words you'll say and ideas you'll have. I can't wait to see your imagination unfold in front of you...filling each day with excitement and wonder. Above all, I want you to know how much we love you. Each and every day, we love you.

Happy birthday!

We have a lot to be thankful for this year. Obviously, Diego's birth tops the list. It is awesome to have two sons. Jose is employed--hooray! And, we've had some quality family time. Almost everyone in our immediate families has met Diego. Being supported and loved as a family makes us even more thankful. So, we were definitely ready to celebrate Thanksgiving. We started the day with homemade bagels and chai and an unofficial Turkey Trot. Then, we headed to Pueblo for an unseasonably warm day of giving thanks and chowing down. (I forgot my camera, so Jose took some iPhone photos--sorry they're a little fuzzy!)
