Kahlen's Birthday Party

So, I managed not to get any pictures from Christmas because I forgot my camera. BUT I did get some good ones at Kahlen's birthday party, which was on Saturday.
She had a great time, and was a little overwhelmed by all the adults trying to talk at her at once. Her favorite present was the balloons from Grandpa Larry, she now drags them all over the house with her. Of course, she also likes the books that her aunts got her.

In classic Kahlen fashion, she wanted to eat her cake with a fork and not with her fingers because it was too sticky. She eventually got over it in order to shovel faster before someone decided she wasn't allowed to have this much goodness.

For Christmas, we got a video camera from my mom, so there'll be more videos from now on (probably).

Now, I'm just trying to figure out what to do with all these toys and their hundreds (ok, dozens) of pieces...

Here's her birthday video

Playing in the Snow

On Friday, Kahlen and I played in the snow. She thought it was the best thing ever! She cleared off snow from a lawn chair, made a pile to sit in, and made snow angels. Ever since then, she wants go to play more in the snow, but it's mostly melted now.

She does have a new distraction, though, so it's okay. We put up our Christmas tree yesterday, and she thought it was pretty funny to have a tree in the house. The first thing she said when she saw it was "Tree inside Kahlen's house!" I haven't put any presents under it yet for fear of what she'll do to them (and because I haven't gotten around to wrapping any yet).

Her other new favorite thing to do is pull up my shirt and tell me that I have a baby in my tummy and it's going to get bigger bigger. Thanks, baby, I already feel huge :)

So, I really meant to put these up way sooner, but oh well, naps happen :)
Here's some pictures from Halloween. Kahlen LOVED her "Tigger Jacket" and keeps wanting to wear it every time she sees it, so I had to hide it and hope she never finds it!

We went downtown Fort Collins in the morning, which was an absolute nightmarish zoo. We didn't know that the schools were out, so there were about 10 times more kids than last year. I wish I had taken a picture, but it was crazy! For every store that was handing out candy, you had to stand in a long line. Needless to say, we didn't stay very long.

In the evening, we went to a friend's mom's house in Loveland, hoping to allow the kiddos some time to play together and to go trick-or-treating there. Well, one of the families couldn't make it and the other toddler got sick right before we got there, so Kahlen got to play by herself, which she didn't seem to mind too much. She loved the trick-or-treating; she would walk up to the house, push the "ding-dong" and say "tricktreat" to the delight of the people answering the door. Then she would run down the path saying "More candy, more ding-dong, more tricktreat?" We were only out for about 30 minutes, but she got more candy than she'll ever be able to eat. More for me :)

When we were leaving at 11:00 PM after playing games for several hours, we got outside by our car, and Kahlen wanted to know "more ding-dong? more candy?" Overall, it was a good day!
