Snowmass



Hello yet again! So we do realize that it is getting a bit ridiculous how much we travel, but seriously we cram it in to this small window of time and won't be traveling again till June (and it will probably just be Kat who travels then)! So anyways, we returned from our amazing warm weather trips that included a week in Phoenix and a week in Hawaii to Kansas City on a lovely 60 degree afternoon (lovely, we missed all the good weather).
Following seeing our puppies and not being able to spend another week a part from them, we picked up our rental SUV and our puppies! We had to! We packed the car and were asleep by 9pm or Andrew was at least. We awoke at 3AM!!! SERIOUSLY, but we wanted to get through the Vail pass at daylight....and we were on the road by 3:30am and I was out by 4am to only be awoken for a slight scare with racing winds & a rain storm and breakfast and McDonald's at 8am. America's Breakfast!
We listened to books, slept and made it across Kansas in record time (no speeding involved) to pick up Andrew's brother Jason at the airport in Denver. All 3 cars arrived in Snowmass within 30 minutes and included: Janette, Eric, Martin, Jessica, Jason, Andrew, Myself, Marty, Mitchell & Jessalyn!!! Daniel would arrive the following evening after his classes.
We were all so excited and the weather was beautiful. We played in the backyard, laid around in the hot tub, caught up on gossip, taught everyone Cribbage, went skiing (Jason, Daniel & I) and ate everything in sight (as well as drank everything in sight...margaritas anyone?)!
We all had so much fun a lovely Christmas together!!! We can be happy in the cold too....as long as there is sunshine!!! Thank you to everyone for making the long trip and a very special thank you to my grandparents for letting us use their Cabin! IT WAS MUCH APPRECIATED!!! LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
Love, A,K,O&C

Copper officially loves snow more than anyone I have ever meet....
