A Colorado Christmas

We spent Christmas in Colorado.

It was the first time our children ever saw mountains.  They were awed by their beauty and it was so much fun to experience the mountains again for the "first" time through their eyes!

Here was the view upon our arrival in Estes Park, Colorado...

Rosy cheeked children in the "warming hut" at Hidden Valley Sledding Area, 
Rocky Mountain National Park...

And a mini tour of our cabin.  We stayed at The Timber Creek Chalets.  

I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of our master bedroom...we had our own fireplace!  We rented a 3-bedroom room for Mom and Dad, one room for Mary, and one room for the boys to share.

A few other moments captured...

Family Game Night means Trouble!
Beautiful memories created together and captured to last a lifetime.

    Happy New Year!
