And so it begins ... GO BUFFS!

College football season started today. Jonathan has been doing a countdown for months, so I wanted to make the say extra special.
I suprised Jonthan with a new Buffs cap, a new Buffs shirt and socks for Christian (and a shirt for me, too), Buffs streamers, a wall calendear with vintage Buffs program covers and a big ol' "Ralphie" magnet for the back of the car.

The best part of the day was watching Christian. He was so excited to see the game on the TV, and imitate his Papa when something exciting happened. "Go, go, go!" Jonathan would yell ... and Christain would repeat him, "Go, go go!!" Christian was dancing all over the living room and was giddy as could be.
And, happily ... the Buffs won!

A Little Cow

Christian makes me laugh ... a lot!

Today, a small white dog with black spots walked past us. Christian looked down at the dog and said, "Look, a little cow!"

The New Monday Tradition

Jonathan has Mondays off, which means he gets to spend all day with our little Boy Wonder. So Jonathan has introduced, "Muffin Monday." Each Monday, he and Christian will venture out and go have a muffin, or a waffle ... or whatever looks good at whatever coffee shop / restaurant they visit.

Today's "Muffin Monday" is actually "Waffle Monday." That's right, the inaugural "Muffin Monday" was held at Waffle House.

Christian loved the music they played and danced around a lot. And he made sure to greet everybody who walked in the door with a "Hello!" or a "Good Morning!"
Stay tuned each Monday for reports from "Muffin Monday"!

Granny and Grandpa Come for Another Visit

Granny and Grandpa blessed us with another visit this weekend (their second visit this year). It is a really long drive between Denver and Phoenix, and they did it all in one day - wow!

It was an absolute delight to watch Christian visit with them for a few days. He's got two of the best grandparents any little boy could ask for!

Granny also blessed us with some of her excellent cooking (and a bunch of freshly-roasted green chile for our freezer!). For our family gathering this weekend, she made chile, Spanish rice and homemade sopaipillas. DELISH!

Thank you for coming, Granny and Grandpa! Thank you for the good times and all of the many goodies you brought us.

Next time, we'll gather at your house! :)
