Christmas Teaser

This girl...

Julia LOVES shoes. Every time we go to the shoe store she trys on the most fabulous and shiny/glittery shoe she can find and wants me to take her picture in every one of them. She's amazing.

 Julia and Summer would rather share a popsicle than go without one. They love being together!

Fox and Dad on their first 11 year old scout overnighter. They said it was freezing but they stayed warm and had a great time. They hiked in with all their gear for about a mile and a half. ate delicious warm dinner. Fox learned how to chop wood with an axe and start a fire. They came home all in one piece!


Of course mom always out does me on just about everything but I love it! Here is dinner at her house on Halloween night. The kids had a ball but I think the adults had more fun watching them react. That mom is sooo creepy!
 Eyeballs. Chocolate covered almonds in Leches.

 Witch fingers. Bread sticks and cranberries
 Just a centerpiece. Dried fish. I love Coopers face in the background.
 Real octopus. not living.
 Jello worms, delicious!

 Genius cooks
 Real eggs that have bend brined. We did not eat them but they sure looked yummy;)
Sissy made the most divine pumpkin mousse, with real whipped cream and gingersnaps. A perfect end to a ghoully evening. Thanks ladies for a fun holiday all around!


We had the funnest Halloween Soiree! Summer was our official photographer and did everything else too as did Mom. Amazing party planners are essential!

 Homemade chili, Caramel apple bites, and corn bread for dinner.
 Debbie Kelly made and incredible cocoa bar.

Summertime FUN!

We had so much fun this summer. I'll just quickly go down the list and mention a few.
Picnic at the Golden Farmers market for Dad's birthday.

Swimming alot at the Glennon Heights pool with cousins and friends.

Camping at the Ellsworth park a few times come rain or shine. If the rain, we sleep under the roof. Wouldn't you?

Carousel horses to celebrate Julia's 4th birthday!!!!

Playing in the mud pit after a huge rain storm. The boys were all over that yard but they did it in their underwear so I spared them the embarrassment of naked pictures.
 Our favorite Brit, Louise came to visit and the kids cannot get enough of her! Isn't she Gorgeous!
 Summer has too much fun swimming and gets pooped out before we can get her to her bed. Cooper like to harass her.
 Louise is giving Mason the most wicked mohawk. It takes talent to get those locks to stay high.
                                                Mason buried himself in the sand at Splash. 
 Best buds.
 The firehouse Museum downtown had an open house so Grandpa took all the grandkids for a tour. We got to ride the fire engine around the block and the boys sprayed the hose. It was clean water so the girls played in the runoff. 

 Roasting hotdogs and marshmallows at Grandpas house. A huge treat for the kids. They love it!
 Bunjie trampolines at Copper
 Our whole family went up to Copper Mtn. and played all day riding the skii lift to the top of the mtn., bumper boating, golfing, riding digglers, and having drag races in the go carts. It was a blast!
 Yard work. The kids really like to get sweaty and help out their dad. 

 The kids consumed two huge boxes of these otter pops this summer. That's a record for our family.
 Yes that Julia riding the rake to get it to weigh enough to pull enough dirt. Steve worked his guts out on the yard this year. It's looking great!
