Annual Medtronic ST Neurosurgery Holiday Open House

The Annual Medtronic Surgical Technologies Neurosurgery Holiday Open House in Louisville, CO was a huge hit. Team Hutton had a great time emulating neurosurgeons for the night while learning more about the work that Daddy and the Team do while focusing on "Alleviating Pain,  Restoring Health, and Extending Life." for patients around the world.

We were fortunate to start every morning with a family walk on the beach. Some (Ryder & Tagg) braved the 63 degree Fahrenheit water water temp while the rest of us enjoyed the beach.

Nothing better than watching two little boys helping Daddy rake the leaves so they can jump in the pile. Ryder and Tagg had so much fun playing in the leaves and enjoyed a great Fall day in Colorado.

Star Wars Halloween

Team Hutton had a blast dressing up like Star Wars characters for Halloween. Piper was Princess Leia, Taggart was Yoda, and Ryder was Anakin Skywalker.
"May the Force be with you."
 Taggart had a school party and invited Piper to join the fun. 
 "When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good, you will not, hmmm!"
 "I've got a very bad feeling about this."
"The Force is strong with this one."
