This past weekend we put together a cute white big girl bed for Cora! She loves it and is so proud of it, but it's taking her a bit to adjust to and she constantly climbs out to see us after we put her to bed. But, usually after about 5 times or so of tucking her back in, she finally falls asleep. The cutest thing: when she gets up, instead of opening the door and running out, she knocks on the door a few times before opening it, and then peaks out at us. I think she is warning us of her arrival. She is very proud of her bed and loves it though!
The past couple of weeks we've also been fighting some colds, but when we've been feeling better we've been going on snowy walks, skiing, playing with friends, painting and playing!

In celebration of our birthdays, last weekend we went to northern Italy for a long weekend escape. It was just what we needed - sunshine, happy Italians, wonderful food and good skiing with remarkable views. We stayed in a nice hotel in St. Vincent and skied at Cervino, a majestic little resort nestled at the base of the Italian side of the Matterhorn. The skiing was a bit wind blown, but the views made up for it and it was an awesome experience and a very cool birthday gift. Cora's favorite part of the trip was playing in the kid's snow park at the resort and swimming in our hotel pool. Tanner's favorite part was eating all the cured meats the sneaky Italians fed him while they petted and adored him.
|Oh, and Cora's yellow balloon was also a highlight of her trip.|
