Bronco Excitement is Building

 This weekend our kiddos will experience their favorite football team playing in the super bowl and they are excited!!! They really only usually watch a few minutes of the game but they love talking about the players and how they think our team is the best. Sophie and Ari talk about how some other kids in their class don't like the Broncos and how they will always love the Broncos. Today, they got all dressed up in Bronco gear. I really need to update their shirts- I find them at the goodwill for cheap but the numbers are usually old:) (Like Elijah's- from Tim Tebow's short lived Bronco career) At least its blue and orange, right?! 
Orange is everywhere! 

 On another note, we woke up to lots of snow today- about 6 inches. School is still in session- it takes a lot to cancel around here. For the past two weeks, I have been working a part time job. I just love it! I do secretarial work for my sister-in-law's accounting firm. I drop the kiddos off at school and then head over and work a few hours. As the tax season progresses, I will work longer hours but still be done in time to get the kiddos from school. 
I feel so blessed to be able to have such an awesome, flexible arrangement.
Anyhow, I have the day off today and am excited to go work out and have lunch with a friend. 
My husband got me a gym membership for Christmas and I have been faithfully going about 4 times a week. My favorite classes are PiYo(pilates/yoga class) and BodyCombat (fighting-so cool). I also have enjoyed the elliptical and weights. I love exercising! I feel good, healthy and have more energy overall. 
Well, Happy Friday and GO BRONCOS!!!!

Ella's Birthday Celebration

 This was the first year that Ella didn't get a big party but she still had a great celebration:) She had a friend from school spend the night and then our traditional Birthday Breakfast:) That night, we went to Chuckie Cheese and just played games. She invited our neighbor and one of her best friends- Aner. 
  We got a cake at Chuckie Cheese and Chuckie came out and sang to her. She loved it:) 
Hard to believe my little girl is 7!!! Where does the time go?

Love these kiddos!!!

{Grow old along with me; The best is yet to be}

 12 years married to my best friend. 
Everyday learning what true love really is and how it grows with each passing year.

 We had grand plans to celebrate with a fancy dinner and hotel but a nasty cold/chest thing got in the way. Instead, we cuddled up to a movie (The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug) on a cold, wintery night.

P.S. the theatre had these new red reclining couches- AMAZING!

Christmas Recital

Arianna and Ella had their first ever recital the Friday before Christmas. Both girls started their instruments about 5 months ago and I think have improved greatly! I couldn't believe that they were even ready for a recital this early. We let them get all fancy (something they haven't done in forever!) Even bought them new little black patent leather heels for the occasion:) Special thanks to my in-laws for allowing us to use their home/piano for the recital.

 Ms. Britta teaches Ella.
Ms. Julie teaches Arianna.
Here is Arianna Playing:

Here is Ella playing: 

 Little Brynne also played in the recital.
