Steven and I just arrived in Salida, CO because we are taking some of our students skiing for the next 2 days at Monarch Mountain. We are super tired from the drive, but excited to hit the mountain tomorrow morning. We will keep you posted on how things are going the next few days. Oh yes, Preston is staying with the Dalbey's for these 4 days and is doing well. We miss our little buddy and call often for updates! I am sure most new parents would call often when they are away from their child for a few days.

Fourth, eat a little bit more because its not so bad :)
Conclusion: Preston is doing well with the cereal and I am sure he will get better as time goes by. Overall, the Dalbey Trio had a nice weekend!

Other news in the Dalbey house is that Preston began eating some rice cereal this week. He did great and not too much food ended up on him. I am enjoying feeding Preston via a spoon and watching him try to much on the soupy cereal. (Random note - I bought the organic rice cereal because it was only 10 cents more than the other stuff. Not bad at all). He is getting the hang of it - slowly. I will make a point to post some video tomorrow in our 'weekend update' report. For now, enjoy the picture of Preston when he found out about Santa.

Its been a while since I uploaded a video, so here is a short clip from the other morning. We were trying to capture Preston's 'words' but it seems as though he can get a little shy when the camera is rolling. We will keep trying to capture some of his super cute giggles and sounds on camera and post them for our readers.
As far as an update on the Dalbey Trio - we had a nice weekend. On Friday, we had a family portrait taken. I plan on scanning the photo and posting it as soon as I can. That night, we stayed home and chilled out with some ice cream and a movie. On Saturday, Steven took my dad to the Ambassadors of Harmony (AOH) concert. Also performing was the quartet, Vocal Spectrum. Steven's brother, Eric Dalbey is a member of the quartet. Steven said they had a great time. Here is a photo of the quartet - check them out at http://www.vocalspectrum.com/
Tonight, we went to a Christmas party for our small group from Church. The food was super yummy, the company was great and we also had our annual White Elephant gift exchange. Steven and I took home a Tshirt and a hand made bird house (not bad). Steven had to steal the bird house for me because I really wanted it. I think I am going to paint it and hang it up outside. I will post a photo when this project is complete. Oh yes, the Dalbey trio is also excited for the western half of Hwy 40 to open up tomorrow morning. This will make traveling out west much easier. Both my parents and Steven's parents live west of our house. Well, that is all for now. Have a happy Monday!

On Saturday, the Dalbey Trio was tired and decided to stay home. As you can see by the picture of Preston and Steven, we had a great time doing a whole lot of nothing!
The month of December came in style with a little bit of snow! We were excited to see just enough to dust the grass and our little house. Hmm, maybe I should get rid of the pumpkin on our front porch - after all - Halloween and Thanksgiving are over!
