The kids FAVORITE thing we did in Steamboat was sledding!
We don't usually get enough snow to do much sledding in Rock Springs, so this was only their 2nd time ever, and they LOVED every second of it (and it was fun for the adults as well)
The nice hill we found was at the LDS church!


This year we headed to Steamboat for Thanksgiving with the Will family.
Trish and Doug rented a beautiful house for us to stay in, and we had a great time!

We witnessed beautiful sunsets every night.

We played several games, UNO was one of the favorites.

Ashlee woke up on Thanksgiving throwing up. So she spent the day quarantined in the girls room watching movies and resting. The quarantining worked because no one else got sick! Poor girl, though. Thanksgiving is the worst day to be sick.

We had beautiful views form our house. And Steamboat had a bunch of snow before we got there, so everything was nicely covered.

Chris and my mom have an ongoing war with a can of cranberry sauce. They have passed it back and forth to one another since 2007! This year my mom got Chris good by giving it to him at Thanksgiving. Chris' mom helped out with it and he had no clue it was coming. It was great.

We made Thanksgiving turkeys!
And thankful trees.

We all worked on a music video to "I Want a Hippopatomus for Christmas" and watched it the morning after Thanksgiving. Chris directed and edited it, and it turned out super corny, but cute. 

Friday we walked around downtown a bit and stopped for some hot chocolate in a chic coffee shop.

Later that day (and after sledding which has its own post) the kids and Grandma watched The Polar Express.

That night the kids had a rocking dance party.

And then they got new pajamas from Grandma and Grandpa!

Saturday we made cake pops.

And had a fun time playing in the deep snow.
Really Caitlin was the only builder of the snowman.
Chris and Nate came out and we had a snowball fight!

Then back inside for hot chocolate and a craft.
And more beautiful sunsets.

It was a great Thanksgiving spent with a wonderful family!

WWCC Cheer Camp

Caitlin and Ashlee participated in the WWCC cheer camp for the second straight year.
They seemed to be more excited overall last year, but they still seemed to enjoy it this year.
The camp was last Saturday, and then they performed at halftime of the girls basketball game last night.

It's tough to pick them out, especially since we were on the wrong side.
With Caitlin's bestie, Camden.

Some random pictures from November.
This girl had an overwhelming lack of camera time this month, compared to her sisters, but she was still around and cute as ever!!

Me with my beauties one Sunday (I had to get glasses in October)

Our good friends, the Steven's, moved away to Star Valley. They came over for dinner on their last night in Rock Springs and we got a picture of all the girls. Molly and Brylen were the cutest little friends and the older girls loved playing with Alayna. We were sad to see them go. After we said goodbye and they left, Caitlin and Ashlee cried and cried and cried. It's always sad when your friends move away.

Westridge had its second annual Turkey Trot at the mall and Molly and I headed over to walk with Ashlee. She was so excited to see us, because we were a couple of minutes late.

Singing in the Rain

The past 2 weekends were the WWCC's production of "Singing in the Rain". Chris directed it, and it was soooooo good. 
The girls and I went with Chris' parents to the matinee last Saturday. Caitlin and Ashlee also saw the first half the night before and Caitlin saw it with her class for school. I also saw it one other time. We all loved it.
Ashlee wrote about it at school a couple days before she went.
translation- I can't wait to see my dad's show, "Singing in the Rain". I think it will be the best musical that my dad has directed. I will like it.

After the matinee, Chris took us back stage to see the set. They have slats in the floor to drain the rain (yes, it rained on the stage- 3 times!)
