Courtney Weekly 2013 - Week 4

This weekend we were away in Whistler, BC snowboarding, ice skating and tubing so I "forgot" to capture her traditional weekly photo. So this is what we have for this week. :)

Hitting the slopes, er, slope.

While I was still on break from work, we took Courtney up to try out her new skis. Courtney was excited to wear them in the house. She loved her boots too.

When we got up to the mountain we got her all bundled up and pulled her up to the snow in our sled. Let's just say some bribary was needed to get her out of the sled and onto her skis. Chocolate anyone? You gotta do what you gotta do.

We didn't expect her to be working the mountain like a pro at all. We just wanted to get her used to being on the skis, in the snow. I think we accomplished that. She LOVES the snow just like her daddy and that melts my heart.

[Christmas 2012 Recap]

Happy 2013 everyone. Hope you had a fun and safe New Year celebration. We stayed in. Kind of what happens when you have no family near by.

I'm here to do a quick recap about our holiday celebration.

On Christmas Eve we dressed up and headed to the children's mass. We visited a new Catholic Church in town. It was a small church and by the time we got there it was standing room only. It was jam packed. WE stood along the wall for as long as we could before Courtney had had enough. We made it to right before communion. Here is Courtney in her Christmas dress.


That night Mike also read Courtney "The Night before Christmas."


Before Courtney went to bed, we put out cookies, milk, and a carrot.


And then Christmas morning:
