Ashlee is a little bit unsure of her scooter. She likes it, but would rather walk then ride it. I'm sure she will warm up to it once we can be outside more.

Ashlee has been a little under the weather lately, and yesterday seemed to be the climax. Poor thing.
I know there have been a lot of potty posts as of late, but that seems to be most of what has been going on with us lately. Chris was out of town recruiting at the end of last week, so we litterally have just been at home potty training for days. We did go out for a McDonald's playland lunch and for a choir concert last night that Chris sang in. I think we will begin moving on with our lives today.

She is getting the hang of it.
We still have plenty of accidents, but they are getting fewer.
I might be really kicking myself for doing this when we embark on our 15-18 hour drive in a week and a half. But she was ready, and the reward is worth it. No more diapers!
(if only we could stop buying pull-ups for night time, but alas, someone seems to have a very small bladder.)

Ashlee was in the middle of singing "Happy Birthday" to her Bamba Bishop.
They combined all the colors, so we got beautiful greenish-golden-brown ornaments. They look great on our tree!

So we took a picture:
And a few of the girls:
They are so cute together, and they truely love each other. When Caitlin is gone, Ashlee can't wait until the moment Cait will come home again. Today when she was at swimming lessons, Ashlee spent a long time and worked so hard setting the hopstotch up so they could play when Caitlin got home. She was so proud to tell her "I did it all myself!" So precious.

I also had to laugh when I saw that Caitlin had put the Christmas tree skirt on for her dress-up. It fit her great!

They were not in a picture taking mood, because it sounded like the really enjoyed themselves. We have a busy week, but hopefully we will have all the decorations up by the end of it.
Our first few days were spent in the mountains at Chris's parents cabin.
We had fun eating, playing games, watching movies, and sitting by the fire because it was COLD outside.
We ventured outside for about 5 minutes to look for pine cones, but the wind was brutal. I, actually, only lasted about 1 minute.
The Will men crafting- making pine cone turkeys.
Friday night we drove up to Estes Park to catch the Christmas light parade. It was FREEZING, but we had fun. The girls loved the parade, and didn't seem to even get cold at all.
We made poticia which was fun and yummy.
And the girls found a fun toy at Grandma and Grandpa's house.
We are thankful for a wonderful loving family who we know we will always have fun with.

The girls were excited to gear up and shovel with Dad.

Poor Ashlee has been so tired lately, some from being sick and some from just plain lack of sleep.
Last Saturday and Sunday night she could barely keep her eyes open during dinner. Her sleepiness equaled great entertainment for us.

We were so glad she could come and visit and we had so much fun with her.
The girls love anything and everything about her. And whats not to love?
She reads them books, plays games, does hair, makes dinner and lunch, doesn't care if they wake her up at 4:30am, goes to swimming lessons, and she looks exactly like their mom!
We did alot of things while she was here.
While she was here Ashlee LOVED the dragon costume that she won't have anything to do with at Halloween :)
We had pudding for snack in fancy bowls!
We played hop-scotch (how great that a picture can be so deceiving as to make one believe that Ashlee really knows how to hop on 1 leg)
We played games like Toy Story Yahtzee.
Everyone say "Buzz, Buzz, Buzz" If you ever join us in a game you will know what I am talking about.
We had a tea party.

Besides that we also had ice-cream cones at Little America, she and I went to Zumba twice (i love zumba), we went swimming, did some shopping at our mall, went out for Tai, saw "Oklahoma" at the college, and basically just had fun hanging out together.
