Cousins in Colorado: Video Time

I thought we'd share a few videos from when Rex, Ashley, and the girls were in town. Cole posted some other ones on his blog, too.
Here are Paige and Alexia braving the "cold" Colorado weather to play outside.
Here are Rex and Paige chasing Uncle Ryan.
The Seminary places fake coyotes in their lawn to scare away the geese. It doesn't work but they are quite funny to look at.

Visitors Galore!

The last month and a half we have been blessed with visits from many friends and family. Here's a rundown of the who, when, and what.

Ryan Asdourian and his girlfriend Leslie flew in from Seattle for a weekend of skiing. We skied Vail on a Friday, then Beaver Creek on Saturday and Sunday. Thanks to Asdo's mom, we got a great discounted rate to stay at the Ritz, which was quite the experience. It was so much fun to hit the slopes and hang out in the hotel. Emily was so awesome as she stayed in with Cole while we were skiing -- such a great wife, friend, and mommy!
Stephen and Amy Hobson were in town for some skiing of their own and stopped by to join us for dinner on Valentine's Day! It was great to catch up with them and for Amy to finally meet Cole.
Our good friend Shanon was in town from the mountains with her son, Truett, so they joined us for dinner. It was a blast watching Cole and Truett play and interact with each other. Tracie just moved to Denver and so she joined us for dinner as well :) She is now one of Cole's biggest fans!Finally, we just had a visit from my brother Rex, his wife Ashely, and their girls Paige (3) and Alexia (2). They flew out for a whole week and stayed with their friends about 20 minutes from us. We went over there for dinner one night, then they came over to our place a couple times for dinner. Rex and I also spent a day skiing at Copper Mountain. The girls even got a chance to see some snow and throw some snowballs. It's so fun when the cousins have a chance to get together. Thanks for coming out to see us!!!

Oh Baby!

Hold on to your hats, because the Roberts family will be adding a new member to its ranks sometime around October 15th of this year. Emily is now 9 weeks pregnant, and while this pregnancy is a little less expected than the first,
we are so excited that the Lord is blessing us with another child!
We are already working on Cole, getting him ready to be a big brother and to have a roommate. He was pretty excited when we first told him. We'll see how long that lasts :)
#1 Big Brother!
We had our first sonogram on Thursday and everything looks good; the baby is healthy and growing.
This will probably make Emily's schooling a little more tricky than we initially anticipated, so please be in prayer for us as we try to find the right balance between family, school, and work. Thanks for celebrating this blessing with us! We'll keep you updated as things progress. Only 11 more weeks until we find out if we're having a boy or a girl!
