Steamboat in March!

| March 31, 2014

We took an extended weekend to Steamboat with Jon’s family!  And it was nice!  Good time to relax, not worry about school or schedules…  It’s nice to just be a family hanging out!  And we did some fun stuff too!  We went to a tubing hill in town, ice skating and plenty of swimming in […]

It’s Fun to Be Young

| August 12, 2013

Do you remember all the silly things you did as a kid but it seemed normal at the time?!  :) Like letting your 6 year old neighbor (because 6 is way old!) dress you up like Prince and Princesses with make-up, including your hair… Yes, that is hot pink lip gloss on my son… and […]

Always Outdoors

| August 2, 2013

Summer fun, hanging out outside!  I get tired of holding this little chubby monkey… Here, have a seat, D!  Mara loved it.   Our neighborhood friend, Ayslee!  She has the most beautiful eyes!

Best thing to cheer a little girl up out of her “post nap funk” … … A baby brother, for sure!

Three Year Old Beauty

| May 24, 2013

Our little girl is growing up… She had been asking if we would take birthday pictures for her like we did for Breyton… Excited.  New shoes also helped! This little girl loves shoes and clothes.  Although, anymore, if it doesn’t twirl or resemble a princess or ballerina, it’s no longer an option! She makes at […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

| February 26, 2013

Kids {loved} putting their Valentine’s together this year.  Last year, it was a chore for Breyton to write his name on all of his cards but this year he loved every minute!  I gave him his list of friends and he went to work.  Of course his cards were Cars themed and Mara’s were “princess.”  […]

F is For Frog (& Fish)

| February 5, 2013

This week we’re learning about frogs (& fish for Mara).  They remind us to use our tongues wisely.  I was excited this week because we would be getting two new friends in our house — Meet Charlie and Charkie!  Guess who chose names?  :) Here’s a better picture of, umm, one of them…  :) They […]

Just like Momma

| January 24, 2013

M wanted her hair “just like mom’s.”  I like that her hair fits in a ponytail now! Although, her favorite is to have her hair down, and mine up…  

Discovery Science Museum

| January 12, 2013

In need of something to do on a cold day, we all headed to the new Discovery Science Museum for the afternoon. After looking around a bit, the kids settled in to their favorite areas… Mara loved making the beach balls float on air.  Breyton liked the music areas.  They both loved the “tornado” – […]

Now those are some well taken care of babies! One of Mara’s favorite past times lately :)

Christmas Toes

| December 27, 2012

… and fingernails, which someone is disappointed sitting here that we don’t have a picture of them… This little girl is all girl!  Which I love, by the way!  She loves her nails painted!  She got some of her own pink and purple nail polish in her stocking. Each time we do pictures, we also […]

C is for Cow

| December 26, 2012

“God’s word helps me grow.” That’s what we learned about in school 2 weeks ago!  We’ve been plugging along in My Father’s World curriculum this year!  It’s been good and a lot of character growing at home!  This particular week we learned all about cows and dairy products… So what did we do?  We made […]


| October 27, 2012

Had Breyton’s Halloween piano party and recital today.  They were both excited to wear their costumes and get some early candy!  B liked having a sheep to shepherd!  :)  Our neighbor had given us the sheep costume, so we came up with the pair! They got to play some games and then all the kids […]

Little Olympians…

| August 12, 2012

Has anyone else’s children been affected by the Olympics?  Mine have been creating several “couch cushion courses” for gymnastics, tumbling, and in general, craziness!  :) Here’s the breakdown – Breyton – Good beginning form with a perfect tuck position. Release with beautiful legs together and pointed toes.  Arms ready for coming landing. Great form. Landing […]

Wyyyy – Oming

| August 12, 2012

We went for a brief visit to see Great Granddad and Great Grandma Alice!  We road-tripped with my very own momma! We had an exciting encounter with a deer on the way there, but my steadfast husband was driving and he kept us from danger!  Just some fun swerving… We got to see Yellowstone and […]
