Wednesday, October 28, was our four year wedding anniversery. We headed just an hour and a half away to Estes Park in the heart of the Roosevelt National Forrest for the day/night on Friday. It was such a beautiful setting, as there was still plenty of snow on the ground. We walked around all the cute little shops, grabbed some coffee, did a wine tasting and had dinner at the lodge restaurant. We stayed in a quaint cabin at Mary's Lake Lodge, complete with fireplace and all. Very nice and relaxing mountain getaway!

The snow started on Tuesday evening and didn't stop until late on Thursday evening. We ended up getting about 2 feet total at our house, which I think is much more than they got in other parts of the city. My office was closed on Thursday, so we both had a cozy day in working from home. Fears of this type of snowstorm around February 20 have entered my mind!

The biggest and most daunting house project is now complete - we got the drapes hung in the living room on Saturday. Allelujah! We ordered the fabric a few months ago, and my dear friends Brandy and Jamie did a fine sewing job on Wednesday night. Zums and I borrowed the Pfalmers' ladder and were ready to hit this project head on Saturday afternoon. It ended up taking 3 hours and many frustrations, but we are both elated with the end result and the way that it's transformed the living room. Plus, with winter just around the corner, it should really help keep the heat in. Next project...painting the nursery!

It was a beautiful weekend in the 70s in Denver and my family was up. Our plan was to hit the corn maze and pumpkin patch on Saturday, but it looks like everyone else in the city had the same plan and after seeing the lines of cars and lines of people, we opted out of that. We headed to Morrison for lunch then hiked around Red Rock on the clearest day imaginable!

We ordered the above bedding this week, though we had it picked out a few weeks ago. We're planning to do the nursery walls a light pink to match the border color. My sister is bringing up Spencer and Rhett's crib this weekend, so we're keeping it all in the family. The goal is to have it completed by Thanksgiving time!

Finally...Baby Graham decided to cooperate and let us know that we're having a little diva in February. We couldn't be happier or more excited! We've got some good ultrasound pics, so I just have to figure out how to get those scanned now. Stay tuned...

Time is flying and we are at the halfway mark with Baby Graham's arrival. This is a BIG week, as we find out the sex on Tuesday morning. We are both so anxious.
Fall is in the air in Denver, and it is beautiful. We've had temps in the low 70s/high 60s and crisp, clear mornings. Saturday morning I took a long walk around the reservoir then had my friend Heather and her baby Colin over for breakfast. Colin is a BIG boy, weighing 22 lbs at only 5 1/2 months.
Sunday morning we were up at 6am to get downtown for the Race for the Cure. We joined 63,000 other walkers and runners for a glorious morning walk around downtown Denver. We hit Cheesecake Factory for brunch. YUM!
After two weekends at home, we'll be heading to Eads this next weekend and will have the fam up the following weekend. Updates to come on Baby Graham Boy or Girl!
