It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Colorado! We've been on a whirlwind month of activities, and here is a sneak peek into the past few weeks...
Since we were on our own for Thanksgiving this year, I decorated early and had the entire house ready for Christmas by the end of Nov. I've never decorated that early before, but with lots of activities this month, I am glad I did!
Welcome to our home, please come in!
The ice skates you see were my mothers, and I found a fun vintage sled to display them on. We're ready for winter!
The staircase full of garland...
The table all set for our ladies Bible Study Potluck.
A great chance to show off my mom's pretty pointsettia dishes, was at the Christmas Tea where I hosted a table.
On Friday I hosted a Christmas cookie exchange and craft night! We had fun tasting each other's delicious Christmas cookies and working around 5 stations of crafts where each guest was able to make ornaments, a "Fireside Coffee Mix", candy Santa Sleighs, etc...
Tom and I experimented with a new "signature drink" which I called a, "Christmas Cranberry and Sour Apple Martini! It was so tastey! Aren't the garnishes pretty?
Here is our bartender for the evening,
...and friends Kimberley and Joie!
The ladies busy crafting...
Here we are tubing in "Fraser" near Winter Park this weekend.
A pretty in pink snow bunny waiting her turn to head down the hill!
Tom headed down the hill...
How nice to have a rope tow to get back to the top of the hill...it was lazy man's tubing today!
It really wasn't as cold as it looks. It was around 28 degrees today, but compared to the -11 degree temps last week...anything above 20 degrees feels downright warm!
More December adventures to come! I have fallen so behind on blogging, but will be by to visit you soon! Leave us a comment if you have time, we'd love to know you were here! Merry Christmas! :-)
