Sun, Sun, Mr. Golden Sun.....

It seems like it has been forever since we have seen the sun. In fact I can't remember the last time we had a day when it wasn't foggy or storming. So finally this week the sun came through the clouds. Oh it was so glorious. So nice to get out of the house.

Santa is that you? Oh wait, it's Jack!!!!

Jack put this outfit together all by himself.

Tropical Lifesavers

So a couple of weekends ago, Ed was out of town and the kids and I had stopped at Walgreen's and next to the register was a couple of boxes of different flavors of Lifesavers. They had Tropical, it has been forever since I have seen Tropical Lifesavers.(maybe because having little kids you don't usually buy hard candies) Since the kids had never had them and they were 3 for $1.00(bargain I know), we just had to buy them. Oh the wonderful flavors, pineapple is of course my favorite and melon too. And of course the kids enjoyed them too.

Christmas In Idaho

This year for Christmas we headed to Boise, Idaho to visit Poppi and Grandma. The trip there was quite a long one(4 hours to Reno and it's usually 2), but we finally made it and were so happy to see Poppi and Grandma. Aunt Wendy, Uncle Dave and Cooper joined us, which made for quite a full house. It was a really fun and busy week. We got together with Uncle Eric, Aunt Katie and Tanner almost everyday. Aunt Katie's family was up also so there were lots of people to visit with. All of the kids did really well and it was so good to see Tanner and Cooper. Such BIG cute boys. While we were there, we went up to McCall for a day in the snow. Poppi found the perfect place, although the temperature was not so perfect. How about 7 degrees?!!! Oh boy was it cold. The kids had a great time sledding. By the time we left though poor Coopers cheeks were as blue as can be. So many memories were made this Christmas and I am so very thankful that we got to spend it with everyone. Looking forward to more Christmas' like this one.

Picking out a Christmas Tree

Thanksgiving weekend we headed up to Rainbow Ridge in Grass Valley to cut down our tree. Since we were traveling to Idaho this Christmas we weren't going to get a tree, but I just couldn't go without. It was a beautiful day out and lots of fun and memories.

Even though it was 70 degrees outside, the kids just had to sit by the fire.

Max working to cut it down.
