Hiking The Horsetooth

I have to blog this because we never do this kinda stuff. It's a momentous occasion!! And thank you Pyne's for letting us use your carrier. It was a life saver. (Although Kevin might not agree completely with that, he being the pack mule). I think that we had a good time. We got out, got some exercise (no comment), and got to be one with nature. Now please share with me a Zen moment. (oooooom, oooooom)

Lydia was drawing us a map just in case we didn't know which way to go.

Bear got in on the action too!

Whoa Mama! That's A Long Time!

Um . . . well what do you say when your last post was 5 MONTHS AGO?!?!? Honestly I don't know why I haven't blogged, it just seems rather daunting at the moment. I wish I had some great excuse like OH MY GOSH I'M PREGNANT AND I'VE BEEN THROWING UP NON-STOP!! Alas, that is not the case. Or maybe I HAVE BEEN SO BUSY WITH MY PHOTOGRAPHY DOING SHOOT AFTER SHOOT AND BEING SO GLAMOROUS I JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO BLOG!! Alas, that is not the case either.
But if you care to see there will be posts covering Christmas, Lydia's Birthday, My Grammy, and a few other little happenings, goings on, posts. Scroll down if you dare.

Toppins A Bag

We decided to make bird feeders. Super easy with peanut butter, pine cones, and birdseed. The kids had fun and I am grateful that I had the forsight to do it on the kitchen floor with a table cloth spread out underneath us. Oh, tip for those with 2 year olds, when "sprinkling" the birdseed on the pine cone don't leave the lid off the peanut butter or you might find a fun surprise in there the next time you go to make a sammie. I'm just sayin.

And there they sat, waiting, anticipating something wonderful to swoop down and partake of the bounty they had laid for them . Unfortunately, they didn't get to see any swooping. However, the pine cones were partaken of. For a couple of days they kept disappearing mysteriously. We would look out the window and one would be gone and then another and then another. Until we finally spotted the culprit. SQUIRRELS!! Or rather SQUIRREL!! That tricky little bugger stole every last one of those pine cones. Dang dirty squirrel.
