Holidays at home

We had such a wonderful time at home this year for Christmas and New Years.  We got to spend three weeks in Colorado and even snuck in a trip to LA to celebrate my brother and his fiance Lizzy's engagement!  I have a million and 1 photos so I will try to keep it short...

Olive did so great on the flight home.  Slept and played the whole time!  
On the flight.

She loved watching out the window.

Finally home to Grandpa and Grandma!

Helping mom unpack.
My friend Kristen had her baby right before I got home so Joel and I got to go meet little Noah.  What a precious baby!

Newly enlarged family!
We spent lots of time outside even though it was cold and Olive seemed to really enjoy herself!

Walk on the golf course.

Bundled up, not the dame as life at the beach!
We also spent lots of time snuggling by the fire and hanging at the cabin!

Happy hour at the Cooper Casa.

Skyping with Lizzy, she came a few days after Colin.

My mom decided to get second ear piercings.

More walks at the cabin!
Olive's first Christmas was spent at the cabin.  We had such a wonderful time.  My mom really made it a special Christmas.  The house was decorated perfectly and there were lots of goodies.  We even had a gingerbread house building contest!  We spent Christmas eve at church and then dinner at home.  Olive loved the singing but silent night put her to sleep.

Sleepy Christmas baby.
Christmas morning was so much fun.  Olive got way too many gifts but loved them (and the wrapping paper).

With Penelope.

Christmas morning in PJ's!

She was just starting to stand on her own at this point!

With Guinness.

My little Christmas angel.
Adam (Olive's godfather) stopped by to say hi on his way home to Aspen.  It was so nice to see him!

Happy Baby!

With the boys!
One of the fun activities that we did while we were in the mountains was a sleigh ride to a mountain cabin for dinner.  Olive loved listening to the guitar player!  It was very cold on the sleigh ride but we all bundled up and snuggled under the blankets.  Olive fell sound asleep on the ride (both ways!) so I guess that means she enjoyed it!

With Aunt Lizzy at the cowboy cabin!

With the horses.

Sound asleep, too much fun!
After Christmas, sadly Joel had to head back to Cayman (someone has to work around here!) and Olive and I stayed for another week.  We went back down the mountain for a few days before heading to LA.  I will tell you all about our LA trip in the next post!

Walking in Denver.
