Every year since Bruce and I have been married we've made it a tradition to head out to Colorado to visit his older brother's family. They are AWESOME. They have to be some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I really look up to them and all they've been through. We were able to go up because Bruces Brother hooked us up with plain tickets through his work. All we had to do was watch the kids for 2 days while L. was at girls camp and T. was on his business trip. For the next 3-4 days we got to hangout with all of them. A vacation was exactly what we needed. We went to museums, cool parks, went on walks, played, BBQ, went shopping took pictures...and much more. Savanah was deathly afraid of T. but LOVED playing with her cousins. Especially I. she LOVED I. Savanah even feel asleep while I. was holding her (which she never does for anyone else, except my younger sis). It was fun. Every time I go out to Colorado I want to stay I love it so much. Maybe one day we will find ourselves living there??
Thanks so much guys!! We really had so much fun. Until next year... we love ya and miss you already!

You are as perfect as ever! You are growing up SO fast I can hardly keep up with you.
These days you LOVE to mimic anything I do, from putting make up on to doing the dishes. You even play with your ears when your tired (like me). You are talking so much more and are becoming much more confident in repeating words you hear me say. You know where your face features are and what they are called. You LOVE your tiger book, your chicka chicka boom boom book and a book called "I'm as quick as a cricket" You love to be around other kids and try so hard to play with them. You are getting much better at sharing with other kids. You are VERY independent, you don't like to be picked up very much by others. You are even deathly afraid of all the males in the Macdougall and Stlaurent family except for dad and Grandpa MacD.
My favorite thing you have started doing is saying my name when Im trying to get you do something you don't want...like when I'm trying to get you to go to sleep and you are throwing a fit, you'll stop and say, "momma" Very sweetly and reach up to pull my face down for a kiss as if it will change my mind on you going to bed.=) Silly girl! You are such an active girl you never walk anywhere. You are always running from one room to another and communicate so well with me when you need/want something.
We love you so much little! Happy almost 17th month!
