We love snow in this home...

Such a beautiful snow fall in Brooklyn! We went out this morning for a few minutes to play. We aren't feeling 100% in the Robinson household so our play time was just on our front stoop.
Ms. D was not complaining!

for my Bible Study girls who are cool enough to sing Christmas carols at our Chrismas party! It wasn't even my idea to sing...I swear~ but it is one of my fav things to do this time of year (or any time of year:).

O Christmas Tree

The holiday

I love this time of year...It gets pretty busy and all down time is spent thinking of what needs to be done next. Thankfully in our families we don't really do presents (Minus Sue who ignores us when we say "We need Nada") and my dad and step mom who flew us to CO as a gift!! But no running from store to store fighting the crowds in this household.

The apartment looks gross as we have things kind of piled up but we are just too lazy to actually go through things. Last night was spent at a friends to celebrate a visit of our San Fran friends who moved away almost 2 years ago. A great time was had by all...I'll let the photos say the rest!
The guests of honor! Katie, Alton and Brian

The hosts! Josh had a great idea of us all poising in front of the tree as if we were at the high school prom. Each couple did a little something different and had us all rolling!

Have you ever seen anything cutier? Alton is such an amazing one year old.

Brian trying to read from the book he just wrote! Check out the book- a great gift idea. 109 Forgotten American Heroes! He wrote it, our other friend did artwork for it and Gabe had a suggested hero make it in the book!

Johanna and I

Katie and our Kohls!

My favorite picture of the evening!

Thanksgiving pictures

We were in Fort Collins for Thanksgiving visiting my dad and step mom! My brother Matt and his wife Carrie also joined us. We had a great time catching up, eating good food, and relaxing.

Here we are around the grub-
Don't mess with a girl and her turkey leg

Carrie just can't wait for the cranberry sauce!

The boys and I took the cars out for a spin....It was a really pretty day out and the scenery was beautiful

That night we went to watch the Denver Nuggets take on the NY Knicks....I wanted the Knicks to win seen that we are from NY BUT the peer pressure of the thousands surrounding me had me cheering for the Nuggets- and they won!

We went to a restaurant called "Brooklyn" beforehand.

Matt and Carrie at the game

Matt and Carrie brought there two pups- Mali and Otis, what sweet dogs! Dakota would have loved playing with her cousins.

O and how can I forget to show this....
