Checked out the Cripple Creek Ice Festival for the first time today. It was cold, but worth the hour and a half drive from where I live in Colorado Springs! It runs for two weekends.

There’s cool stuff for the kids too, including a slide made out of ice and an ice maze.
I had a chance to hang out with the staff, volunteers and families from Starlight Children’s Foundation this weekend at their Christmas party. If you aren’t familiar with Starlight, I encourage you to check them out. It’s a very cool organization that supports families with chronically sick children. It makes me wish I could do more to bless these wonderful families through my photography!
