Sarah's photography business is doing well with lots of fun themed shoots about the holidays. The other night she was getting the props all setup and wanted to test it all out. We both went downstairs leaving the boys upstairs while we prepared the shoot for the boys. While we were in the basement suddenly Sarah noticed water pouring out of the top of the basement window sill. Instantly we both thought a pipe had burst so I ran up stairs and outside to check but all looked well. We were puzzled as the water just stopped pouring from the ceiling. So we finished setting up the shoot and I went to get the boys from upstairs. I grabbed Ridge and found his pants were soaked, it was then I remembered that as I started coming back up from the basement I seen a piece of evidence.
This lead me to the idea that there is a heating vent in the kitchen that is located directly above the window with the leak. I grabbed exhibit A and went to the vent but it was totally dry no signs of water. I looked into the laundry room and found exhibit B.
Which lead me to the crime scene.
Ridge had dumped the entire bowl of dog water down the heater vent in the laundry room which must slope down toward the basement window where all of the water escaped into the basement. Fun times.
In addition we also we discovered we have rats in our house....Well one rat to be specific, it weighs about 20 Lbs and goes by the name of Ridge. He finds his way into the pantry periodically and eats his way into our packaged foods.
Little bear's dad.
Fun with sand
My little paleontologists.
Really cool water exhibit.
Tanner loved turning this crank that sent the balls up to the top of the track.
Tanner hated waiting for a turn.

Then of course there are all of the Christmasy fun things to do....
Erie Santa and Mrs. Clause
Is she threatening me?
Oh maybe she just really likes fist bumps...
Uhhhh to much sugar!
Yum! Ridge did not get very far on his house before devouring it.
Letters to Santa (didn't we just see him?)
Selfies after the company Christmas party in downtown Boulder.
Another big event for us was Weston turning 9 years old. This year we opted for a birthday party at a local bowling ally which was a blast for the kids. Weston was nice and invited 3 of his friends who had younger brothers the same age as Tanner who were also invited. It was a fun day for both boys.
Weston...The Bowling King!
Bowling ally + hands in your mouth = Flu
Tanner bracing Weston
Tanner likes candles I guess.
Well I guess that is it for now, I will try to get more up more often. I hope everyone out there had a great Holiday season and a happy new year.
