thanksgiving in breckenridge

almost a year ago, dave's grandma planned a family reunion for over thanksgiving in breckenridge (and i figured i better blog about it before christmas!). besides the coloradoans, family came from arizona, missouri, nevada and utah. we had such a great time and i loved spending 5 whole days with dave. our week included what all good vacations should:
plenty of games
a little pool, a little fooseball, and a lot of wii
(the huge projection screen was awesome to play on)
cheyenne (the only other great-grandchild besides logan) may only be 8 years old, but she was a hardcore wii player. seriously. don't mess with her.

hot tub time
crisp morning runs
as in 29 degrees.
and a huge, long hill to run up
puzzle time

just hanging out
main street "downtown"

a triple date
trying on hats
dave and i introduced the others to our favorite shop. we have to visit it every time we are in breckenridge (and take lots of pictures, of course)
a snowshoeing date
ice skating

it had been a long time since any of us had been ice skating, but it came back...kinda. sterling was definitely the best.
tons of food
i am fairly certain i gained at least 5 pounds before we even had thanksgiving dinner. there was constant food and it was amazing.
and of course thanksgiving dinner itself was fantastic (eaten on black friday since john and erin arrived thanksgiving day and wanted to make the pies. trust me, it was worth the wait)
and a visit from mr. and mrs. claus

i have so much to be thankful for.
