February was a quick month. Mostly cold, but with a few days of 50s and 60s. We had a chance to go sledding with the kids. That was fun. It's amazing they didn't crash into anybody there. They came close. The biggest thing that happened this month though is that we bought a new house and sold our current house, all in the span of 10 days. We actually sold our home in about 2 hours. We are excited for the change, which will happened at the end of March. The kids will have much more room and we will be in a very nice area. We will go to a new ward and a new stake too. We will see how things go. Austin is turning 8 on March 4 too, so that is a big milestone. He will be getting baptized in the new ward on May 3rd.

Happy New Year! We had fun going to downtown again this new year and riding the train with the kids. We had dinner over there and then stayed to watch the fireworks. It was very mild too, which made it even better. Other than that, January just flew by without a lot of exciting things going on. It has been warm and cold, and we have had some snow, but not a lot really. Probably the most exciting thing this year so far is the fact that the Broncos made it to the Super Bowl. So, GO BRONCOS!

December, of course, was a fun month. First, Jason turned 4 on the 18th. He was very excited to receive some presents and blow the candles on his cupcake. We can't believe how fast he is growing. He is a lot of fun to have around. But, the kids really were counting down the days until Christmas, which also came very fast. We all got cool presents and had a good time just hanging around home doing nothing. For new year, we did our traditional light-rail ride to downtown and had dinner over there. We also got to watch the fireworks they do at 9PM for families. 2014 should be an exciting year for us. We will see where we will be living by the end of the year. We are also looking forward to watching the World Cup in June/July.

November came and went so fast that we forgot to update our blog. It was a very nice and warm November for Denver. We spent a lot of time outside knowing that our days were numbered. We had a very good Thanksgiving too. We didn't follow tradition and instead we grilled some steaks. It was so nice and warm that we could not pass grilling one more time. We also got to play some football in the morning and just hand out and relax in the afternoon. The kids are very excited for Christmas, of course. Before that though, we will have Jason's 4th birthday on December 18th. He is getting too big, too fast. December has already started and the weather has really, really turned. So, we are glad we enjoyed November so much.

October was a fun month. First, the kids had their fall break. We decided to take them on a couple of hikes before the weather gets too cold and snowy. We went to the Botanical Gardens close to our home. It was great and full of colors. We even got to pick 4 large pumpkins for free. A couple days later we took them to hike near Red Rocks. It was awesome. Easy hike and great views and colors too. Later in the month we had JoLynn's and Ariel's birthday. And, of course, we closed the month with Halloween. It is safe to say that we have candy for the next 2 or 3 months. It was fun, but also pretty cold and windy. November should be fun. We will start seeing a lot more snow and we are looking forward to Thanksgiving.

September was somewhat of a quiet month. We had fun hiking Garden of the Gods with the kids on Labor Day. This place is really cool and right next to Colorado Springs. We had a lot of fun there and even got to see some mountain goats. The rest of September was fairly quiet expect for all the rain we had in Colorado. Luckily, we did not get any of the flooding that some parts of the state saw. Things are very green for this time of the year and we will have some great colors during this fall. JoLynn and Ariel got to go out to Madison, WI to check out the place. The kids stayed in Colorado, so that was nice for a change. October should be fun. Fall will be in full swing and we should be seeing our first snow. The kids are very excited about Halloween too. We will also have JoLynn's and Ariel's birthdays.

August marked the start of school. The kids were excited to meet their new teachers and see their friends again. Kylie is now in 4th grade. Austin is in 2nd grade. They are getting big quickly. Jason is happy to get the house and toys all for himself all day long, as well as all the attention. We almost bought a new house too during this month. Ultimately, we decided to walk away and keep looking. We are close though. We look forward to September, to the trees start changing colors, to Broncos and BYU football, to cooler weather, etc. We may even see some snow, although that usually starts in October. We will see.
