Last weekend we ventured out to the mountains to cut down our tree.
Alli and Chris brought donuts for all and Naomi picked the biggest one available!
These 3 spent majority of their time in the woods hitting dirt off of these roots.
Family with tree picture attempt. Our tree is very Colorado. It may look thick but that is only because it has three trunks!

We celebrated Malia's birthday a week early with a Frozen party with her friends. She picked her theme months ago and while I was surprised that she didn't change her mind (even after a couple of her friends had Frozen parties), it actually was a really fun and easy party theme.
Malia with her cake. I got the inspiration for her cake here. We already had the figures which was nice.
This was their idea :)
Davey and Malia wore their Halloween costumes (which corresponded with the theme) and when Naomi woke up from her nap and saw them dressed up, she asked for her butterfly costume which made me laugh.
Food spread. Malia wanted the food to be themed so we had frozen hearts, Sven's carrots, Olaf's arms, Olaf's noses and snowballs to compliment our pizza.
Our neighbor had a Frozen party a few months ago and passed along some things including this Pin the nose on Olaf.
Opening gifts with a captive audience.

On the first day of December we got out our stockings. Davey has a crazy good memory and was describing each one before we got it out. So we decided to play a game and hid the names on the top and then guesses whose was whose. Malia and Davey did better at remembering than me!

The day after Thanksgiving we went on a hike at a place called Dinosaur Ridge (which felt appropriate because Davey had just talked about dinosaurs that week in Pre-K). It is located in the foothills and is the place where lots of dinosaur bones have been discovered including the first Stegosaurus.
The kids found little divots in this rock and wanted to sit in them.
Davey and Des were blazing the trail and calling themselves twins (because they both had on Keens I think).
Naomi got a nice snooze in the carrier as did 3 week old Abe in the who was wrapped on Chris the whole time.

For some reason I decided to skip the more experimental part of our Science Curriculum so far this year (thinking I would go back eventually). Last week we tried some of the experiments. Had I realized they all had to do with magnets, I might have done this sooner (I heart magnets!)
Here is Malia moving a car by using opposite poles to repel each other.
