And this is why...

Ally is NOT going to Colorado. Every time I put a coat, sweatshirt or socks on this girl this is the face I get. Not just a simple fit but actual tears! It's a really good thing that we live here in Texas or we would have a serious problem. :) Every year that Mark has worked for NFIB he has had the opportunity to win a trip if he obtains a certain number of sales. He has somehow managed to win every single proud of you Mark! We have been fortunate to go to some very cool places the last 10 years. This year his trip is to Keystone, CO. We were really hoping that the whole family would be able to go, but after a lot of prayer for wisdom we decided that Ally is going to stay here with her Honey and GP. I think that she wouldn't have much fun seeing how you MUST wear socks and a coat in Colorado! I really struggled with this decision because I really wanted the Wood 4-pack to go together. Ultimately I think that we made the right decision. I just have guilt taking one child and leaving the other one, ya know?! It's pretty funny though, I keep asking her if she wants to go to Colorado and every time she says, "no way!" She knew her mommy needed help with this decision. Thank you Jenn G. for this adorable snowsuit...if only she would wear it!

Check out this little all of 2 minutes she had her hat off and was trying to get this snowsuit off.

This little man is super excited to fly on an airplane and go to ski school. Here's hoping that excitement lasts for 4 more weeks. We leave on Feb. 26th.

I would be doing the same thing! A two year old in the cold sounds miserable! Ryan will have a blast! So excited you guys get to go on a vacation.

Well, thanks for putting it on her just once so I could see pics...she looks adorable. : ) Brings back sweet memories of Emma when she was that tiny!! But I agree, she will have MUCH more fun with Honey and GP!
