Scratched hands - our new puppy loves to play with the boys but gets a little rough.

We went to Colorado for the holiday weekend. We got up at 5:00 Friday morning to get to the airport by 7:00. Camden and Zachary were excited about being able to get on a plane. As were were pulling into our parking space I thought about Camden's passport. I had taken it out intending on taking it just in case. I looked in the diaper bag and sure enough I had left it on the desk. I then realized I had left my wallet at home also. And in the wallet - my driver's license. By now it is 8:00 and there is no way we are going to make it all the way back home to Keller and back to DFW in time to board the flight. Justin checked and was told I could not board with out form of ID and that there were 2 other flights that day but they were both overbooked. I called Mom to see if she had any suggestions and she said she would check other airlines. I went back up to the ticket counter to talk to another gentleman that had just walked out. He asked if he could help me and I told him the deal. He started typing on the computer and in about 10 seconds had a boarding pass for me and Jackson. Justin had already gotten on for Camden, Zachary and himself. I told him again I didn't have ID. He said that was fine and I would just be subject to more security checks. Justin had moved the car up to the door so we could get our luggage out as fast as we could and loaded in the plane. The guy helped me with the boys so we could go ahead and get through security. Luckily there was no line. He helped Zachary and Camden take their shoes off and then handed them over so a lady on the other side of the metal detector and she help them put them back on. By this time Justin had reparked the car and had made it through security also. We got to our gate just in time to get on the plane. The flight there went very well. When we first sat down I noticed Jackson needed a new diaper. I took him to the bathroom expecting there to be some kind of little changing table or something. There wasn't. So I sat down on the toilet and crammed my legs up on the wall and changed him on my lap trying not to get anything on my pants. When we got settled again Jackson and Camden slept and Zachary was happy looking the window and drinking Dr. Pepper the flight attendant kept bringing him. Hey - whatever keeps him happy. Little did I know that was the last time he was going to be happy until Monday night when we got to our neighborhood.
When we finally got everyone, all the car seats and all the luggage in the rental we finally headed out for some lunch. After we had ice cream at Dairy Queen we go back in the car to head up the mountain to Keystone. About 15 minutes up the mountain Zachary started to whine. I was sure it was his ears so I gave him a sippy cup to suck on. He went to sleep for a few minutes and woke up whining. This was the theme the whole trip. I don't know if he just couldn't get his ears to pop or if he couldn't warm up or what. The only time he smiled was for a second when Justin was taking him around our cabin on a snowmobile. Camden had a wonderful time. He had planned on putting him in ski school but when we got there, the school was completely booked because of the holiday weekend. So he did alot of tubing and sledding. The only time he wasn't happy is when we make him come in and warm up. Jackson did well if he was inside. We took him with us once to do some family tubing and he just got too cold to have much fun. We bundled him up as much as we could with lots of layers, socks, gloves and blankets but his face was cold. It was a little chilly. Most days the wind chill was -25 and the temp was 0-3 deg. I didn't get many pictures because I almost always had a child on my hip. I really wanted a cute one of the boys in the snow but maybe next time.
Camden loved the snow. He now wants to move to Colorado so he can snowboard and play in the snow everyday.
One of Camden's favorite things was sledding. He climbed up the driveway and slid down for hours.
On the way to the car to go to the airport I realized I didn't have a single family picture or any of the little boys in the snow. Camden is sad we're leaving Zachary is still whining.
This is what Camden looked like at the end of the day when we finally dragged him inside.

I have decided to start a blog for 2008. Hopefully family and friends can now keep up with the Potter family. I have great plans to keep this updated even with 1 husband, 3 active boys and 1 new puppy. We'll see how long that lasts! I wanted to post some new pictures of they boys. Enjoy!
Zachary loves to eat. He was fully enjoying a cupcake at school.
