Weekend in Conifer

James' cousin has a cabin in Conifer, CO (about an hour away). We went up this weekend for a little R&R with some friends, John and Ashley, and Christy's parents came up for Saturday. We played board games, ate good food, played pool, watched some movies and worked on a puzzle. It was nice to get away and the view was amazing! Also, we saw a young buck with little antlers, a large red fox and a chipmunk. The only disappointing part was last time we went there was a hot tub and this time the hot tub was gone : (.

Relax... Recap

Well, it has been quite some time since we updated our blog, as we are reminded almost weekly by Christy’s mom.

Since last April:

1. We brought our puppy Cooper home

2. Went to Ohio to visit James’ family (Christy with her trophy largemouth bass)

3. Survived camping in Utah with Christy’s family (Bad Mosquitoes and long walks downhill)

4. James received a promotion at work
5. Celebrated our 1 year anniversary
6. Christy went to Girl’s Camp (Ward camp director)

7. We bought a 2bed 2bath condo in Aurora and moved into it as well as making several improvements.

8. Enjoyed getting to know our new ward, while serving as ward missionaries

9. Travelled to Washington DC for James’ grandfather’s memorial service

10. Shared Thanksgiving with James’ mom in Colorado

11. Enjoyed Christmas in Colorado with Christy’s family including the Mathews who came from Portland

We look forward to all the excitement this year will bring....which we probably won’t blog about. But let’s just see. Maybe we’ll change our habits.
