More CO Pictures

Sorry it took so long for me to post. Last week, I was really busy and then I ended up getting a cold and did not feel like doing anything for 3 days. I went away for the weekend for some much needed rest and am feeling a lot better and more like myself. Once again, I have found myself behind in my postings. I swear, I don't know if I am ever going to catch up.

Guess what tomorrow is?!! The first of October, yay. It's in the 80s here and I am very bummed because I really want my fall type weather, not summer. Gracie's birthday is fast approaching and I can't believe that she is going to be 2. She has grown so much since we've been home and her language has really exploded. She repeats or tries to repeat almost everything we say and has had 2-3 word phrases for a couple of months now. Yesterday, I taught her to say trick or treat in early preperaton for my favorite holiday. A couple of weeks ago, we went to the store and bought Gracie's costume. She picked between two and looks really cute in it. I won't tell you what it is but will post a picture of her in part of the costume so you can guess what she'll be.

Enjoy the pictures!








We went to a place called Garden of the Gods that was beautiful and had different types of rock formations


A cute picture of Gem and M


One of the few family pictures that I love


Jerry cracked me up when he saw this picture because he was giving himself a pat on the back for taking such a great picture because the whole rock formation was in view. I then pointed out to him how he was in the picture and it was I, not he that had taken it!


Gem and M were so excited to see the formation in this rock

Love the pics and the family one is great-- maybe a christmas card pic.

I cant belive the girls are gonna be 2. It blows me away how old they are getting. Mia is totally the same as Gracie with the language. She says soooo much. I only understand about 50% of the phrases she says but the singel words are easy to understand. She repeats everything- even phrases. This is such a fun age!!!

I too am so ready for fall. I am soooo sick of the 80 to 90 to 100 degree weather we are still having. I want chilly fall. I also want to go to dland and see all the halloween stuff. Do you have any interest in going on Friday-- maybe in the afternoon. I could pick the boys up at lunch from school and be to dland by 1:30 or 2pm. What do you think? I will also email Karen.

Love the pictures! I wonder who took that great family one?! We are still warm here too, if you can believe that. I guess we wished for cooler weather when you were here, then it went warm again. Seeing these makes me miss you guys even more!
