Snow Day Updates!

While back East has been pounded, Colorado forgot it was winter…until this week. Today, many of our area schools declared our first snow day of the year and my kids are rejoicing. Well, Bode is rejoicing; Hadley is still sleeping in. That is her way of celebrating.

We’ve been really busy with travel. A month ago, we were in Cancun. We were at The Broadmoor for Valentine’s Day and 12-year anniversary and then last week for my birthday, we had a fabulous time in Aspen. It’s funny to catch a glimpse at the high life when we’re quite the opposite.  Mile High Mamas is in a lull with advertisers and several of Jamie’s clients are late paying their invoices so we’ve been scrimping and saving…just one of the joys of being self-employed. It’s feast or famine and while we’ve been feasting on our trips, we’ve been famining at home. No complaints, though. Plenty of blessings come from being self-employed, even if it is a roller-coaster at times.

I’ll have many updates on Aspen and I’m still working on my magazine article for The Broadmoor, hence my blogging hiatus. Must. Meet. Deadlines.

I’m a bit under the weather today so am dispatching the kids to their friends Trey and London’s houses. A few other updates:

Jamie. My favorite ski buddy. Working like crazy, countdown to pumpkin season is on and is busy indoctrinating the kids with story lines from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a movie that I despise.

“Dad, what is the movie rated?” Bode queried.

I responded “‘I’ for Idiot.”

Hadley. Rocked the moguls last week, graduated to Level 6 in ski school and completed huge Egyptian diorama at school that about sent me to my grave (she loves that crafty stuff).

Bode. Skied his first black-diamond run at Buttermilk in Aspen. Student of the week, named me his “hero” because I take him on cool trips,”brought me to earth,” and am an amazing cook.

Who knew it could be that easy?
