Kadence and Her Cousins

Having a baby around brings great pleasure to all of us. Of course she is almost NOT a baby anymore. The girls had so much fun swinging her in the blanket. Sweet Kadence!

Happy Birthday Gabriel!

My Boy is 17 today! How did that happen? We snuck over to decorate his car and he showed up in the parking lot. What is the likelihood of that happening? We finished up with out him seeing us and got out of there like bandits. We'll finish celebrating at Texas Roadhouse tonight. Happy Birthday Gabe!

My brother showed up in the parking lot just in time for us to do a little decorating for him too! I have a lots of lost time to make up for. All those years of living 4 states away...


Well... our time with Miss Meghan is up today. The girls have had a great time together. They skied, talked, read, talked, roller skated, talked, went sledding, talked, celebrated Jesus, and talked some more! Friends are so sweet to have in our lives. I am so thankful for the blessing of friends!
Meghan, you'll be missed!

Boys and Their Toys

Gabe decided yesterday afternoon to help Charley get squirrels. Charley chases them but never catches them. Gabe pulled out his airsoft and tried to help her out. Of course I'm in the back ground saying, "I like the squirrels!" I am happy he can bring out the "toys" on our property. What a change from California!

Bug or Friend? Help!

What is this? It flies around and is found in the window sill and on the ground. I vacuum lots and LOTS of them daily. I thought it was from the firewood but I don't think so anymore.
Please tell me if this is a visitor or permanant resident to my home!

Easter, Skiing, and Family!

This weekend we had lots of family and fellowship. Easter service was a joyous event celebrating out Lord's resurrection! We had a great Easter dinner of tri-tip and the 1st annual Easter egg hunt in Colorado. We had 80+ real and fake eggs. After a great meal and fellowship we kicked it into high gear to get everyone ready for skiing today. We went up to the Loveland Ski Resort with T's brother's family, my brother's family, Boo's dear freind Meghan, And... Brent came to join us! Of course we always have fun having him to hang with. The puppy is Mattie. She is the cutest Beagle/Basset mix. T conquered the mountain on a board as he has given up skiing for boarding! The California Thrustons took to the slopes and the boys did great for their first time up. Joanna and Robby enjoyed one last ski adventure before the new baby comes this summer. Now I know your wondering what I did all day..... I am the photographer, reader, visitor, and crochet lady! We had a great time!

Lots of pictures so keep scrolling!

More Family!

Today the California Thrustons came to visit us. We have been so blessed with family this last week! The snow came again today just in time for them. So cool! They went sledding out back together and as I write this at 11 pm it is still snowing. The spring Easter dresses were never bought this year, thank goodness!

Boo of course is loving having Meghan here! I have hardly seen them today.

I have to go put out chocolate bunnies! SHHH!

Easter Egg Coloring!

Yesterday the most gorgeous Rebeccca was the star of the show. She was amazing when dipping the eggs in the dye and then lifting them out. Kadence was soooooo cute! She would rather put her hands in the dye instead of the eggs. (Rebecca's commentary)
This is soooooo cute of Kadence and me. It is always the most fun when you get to color Easter eggs togehter.

Silly Girls!

The girls always have so much fun when they get together. No matter how old they are they still "play" dress up! Only this time they are making a video too!

Aren't they adorable!? This is at Garden of the Gods where we had a pic-i-nic lunch. Yogi Bear never came to visit though. :)
