Thanksgiving Vacation

We all went to Grand Lake for the Thanksgiving holiday.  A friend of ours let us use their cabin.  We had a wonderful relaxing 4 days!

The beautiful cabin!

We went on several really beautiful strolls in Rocky Mountain National Park. 

I loved the ice on the Colorado River..... It was so beautiful

And what hike with a two year old would be complete without a tantrum?

Don't let him fool you..... He was not upset.... look at that face!

He's a Moose!

So Dilbert is now 5 months old.  He acts like a 5 month old little puppy but is the size of a full grown dog!  He is now over 50 pounds!  Petunia was only 45 pounds when she went back.  He is gonna be enormous if he keeps growing like this.

Me - "Dilbert - Four on the floor!"  "Dilbert!".... He just kept "smiling" at me, so I took a picture.   

He loves to watch Matthew play in the tub.

Really?  That can't be comfortable.  Look at the size of those paws!  

He almost doesn't fit in his kennel at work any more.

Skiing, pirates and a sad puppy

We got a killer 1.5 inches of snow last night.  Matthew couldn't wait to go out and try his skies.  He actually did really well and went down the small slope in our back yard really well.  He seemed to love it!

Daddy and Matthew

Matthew loved the skiing but he also really wanted to go to the big hills behind our house and sled.

1, 2, 3 GO!!!

Matthew really likes to dress up right now and I got this costume after Halloween for $5!

He's suppose to be a spider.....another $5 post Halloween special. 

"Four on the Floor Dilbert!"...... "but, but but Mom, I wanna get in the bath!"

"please can't I get in?"

"OK, I'll sit calmly here and just look in but I refuse to be happy about it.   Oh, how I want to play in the water.... I'm such a deprived puppy."

So Cute

Here are some pictures from this past week.

I found a $30 kid snow board on Zulily and Matthew was super excited.  Now we just have to wait for snow and for his feet to grow a bit. 

My little fish swimming in the bathtub

We went early to the Open House at my new job and Matthew got his face painted. 

He loved the balloon man. 

Look how he is standing there with his hands in his pocket watching the man make his balloon.  

His balloon was a vampire sitting on his shoulders.... after awhile though he pulled it over his head and it looked like it was trying to choke him.

Dilbert got a second bath this week after rolling in the snow we got today.

The Weekend

It's been a busy weekend... here are a few of the pictures:

Halloween costumes at 75% off... I couldn't resist!!  Dilbert the hot dog!!  Ha ha... too funny!

My boys at the part. 

Daddy and Son

My friends new baby.... William, he is so adorable.  

Matthew seems to be continuing on the theme of wearing things on his head.  Out for a sunday brunch Matthew ate his breakfast with a napkin on his head.  

This afternoon Matthew and I raked up all the leaves in the front yard and played.  We had a great time!


Whooo, it's hard to sit up in leaves. 

Matthew finds his "hockey ball" that I threw in the pile of leaves. 

What a face!

"MOMMY!!!  I ate the leaves and they are yucky!!"

Too cute!

Meanwhile....Dilbert was sitting on the porch watching us and SUPPOSEDLY behaving himself. 

But little be know to me... he was really trying to eat our pumpkin. 

Yes you, Don't give me that sweet puppy face,  you are NOT suppose to be eating the pumpkin!
