Happy New Year

The Cornells came up to the condo to spend New Year's with us. Cohen was still strapped in to oxygen but seemed to have a great time anyway.
 they viewed a little Shaun the Sheep, which Bri and I are pretty sure Sam and Joel like just as much if not more than the boys

 they did some crafts
and snuck in a ski session on the sledding hill

so cute!
one tired little guy! 
New Year's Eve we had a fun night at the condo, we let the boys stay up
 and they had a lot of fun
we unplugged Cohen from his oxygen for a bit to play
around midnight their time (so about 9pm) we did a balloon drop
 they were very excited

they had a blast playing with the balloons

 a few cheers and special drinks

then one more balloon game before bed

Fun Drinks

Sam got some great mustache drink markers in his stocking so Cohen and I decided to use them when we had to stay up at the condo for his doctor checkup...CHEERS!

Christmas with the Troges

Grandma and Grandpa Troge and Joel and Michelle arrived on Christmas day. We spent a few days in Denver then headed to the condo in the mountains.
 Cohen put on a show for them
 Cohen's welcome sign for Joel and Michelle
 grandma brough some fun paint with water pages for Cohen
 reading with uncle Joel- poor little guy got pnemonia and had to be on oxygen for most of the vacation in the mountains (he kept telling us he was coupled up like a train) thank goodness the oxygen line was long!
 Joel and Michelle at sunset
 we learned that Michelle is quite amazing at playdough!

 we celebrated grandpa's 60th a little early as a family
 we had some great game nights
 and even got to go skiing with Joel and Michelle
 Joel's beard froze
 Cohen loved snuggle time with grandma
 and did a lot of sleeping
 another playdough creation

the top left of this is the picture on the box of the playdough the top right is our attempt...NAILED IT!
