Cutting Down Our Tree

This Christmas was the first Christmas that we got to spend at Jamie's parents new Lake House at Priest Lake. We decided it would be fun to go out and cut down our own tree on Christmas Eve.
Here is Jamie's Dad (Mike) and her sister (Jenni) with the lucky tree

Brendan approves!

The family with the tree! So fun to have Jamie's Aunt Sherrie up to visit for the day.

Jenni, Justin and LuLu

Aren't they cute

No comment...

Brendan loves to be outside!!

Even Grandma came with us to get the tree. Here she is with Brendan when we got home!

It was very fun to come back and decorate the tree. Might have to become a new tradition!

A Fun Date Day

Growing up in Sun Valley ID, Josh was destined to love to ski. When I got married to Josh I knew I needed to learn how to golf and ski. Josh has been a very patient teacher of both sports. I will go golfing because it is often a great time to be with Josh, My Dad and friends. But, I have come to LOVE skiing. I love the outdoors, the sound of your ski's across the snow, the feel of the air blowing by you as you go down the mountain, the burning that your legs experience as you near the bottom of a run, sitting down in the lodge for lunch after skiing all morning, and being with my amazing husband. For Christmas I asked Josh if we could go skiing on the 26th. My wonderful parents offered to watch Brendan for the day so we could go together. It was a GREAT day. We had so much fun being together and enjoying the outside. Thank you Josh for being the best husband and father--you are a blessing to me.

Christmas Letters

Published with Blogger-droid v1.6.5

One of my favorite things this time of year is getting all the Christmas Cards. It is so fun to get something in the mail besides bills. I look forward to opening all the letters and seeing all the pictures. My Grandma gave us a Christmas Card holder the first Christmas Josh and I were married that her and my Grandpa used. It is one that goes over our door...I love to watch it get all filled up with cards as December goes on. Thank you to everyone who sends us cards, we are so thankful for all our dear family and friends.

Many Blessings on a WONDERFUL Christmas!!

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

We had a great visit with Josh's mom & step dad this past weekend. What a joy to be with them. It is so fun to watch Brendan love them so much.

Brendan was spoiled with a bunch of cute new outfits and some new toys. He had fun playing with some new cars and a slide for the cars to slide down (seen in the picture above. It made us all giggle to watch him play with a new Baby Tickle Me Elmo...Hilarious!

Brendan was so happy to have his Grammy and Grandpa J here. He laughed and made us laugh all weekend. We are so blessed to have such amazing families.
