Paxton’s Family Day

And finally Monday was Paxton’s 2 year Family Day. He has been such a blessing to our family and such a little sweetie. He may be small (he finally hit 28 pounds….with clothes on) but he has never let his smallness stop him, he totally acts and thinks he’s just as big as the big…

Happy 7th Birthday Caedmon!

We’ve had a busy few days at our house between a birthday, state gymnastics meet, and a family day….but we’ll start with Caedmon’s birthday. Caedmon turned 7 on Saturday. Crazy to think that he is already 7. That boy was born with an extra dose of self confidence and it has only grown since that…

Double And Trouble……

Yeah I think that may be what I start calling the two littles. I’ve teased about it before but really it seems more and more fitting. Which one is Double and which one is Trouble? Really you can’t have one without the other, they are like a super hero team that is joined together. We…

An Atypical Thanksgiving 2018

Our thanksgiving was anything but “typical” this past week. My parents were out of town and my brother and his new wife had other commitments so when we started looking and planning we all sat down and talked about what we really wanted to do. No one wanted turkey and we decided we’d rather spend…

Day On The Farm

On Tuesday Paxton and Coppélia’s preschool class had a field trip to Miller Farms. The teacher said the whole family could join and come along so we made a day out of it. When Caedmon heard that we were going to go to a farm and get a pumpkin he insisted that Grandpa join us…

3 Years Home!

On Sunday we celebrated Edric’s Family Day. He has been home and part of our family for 3 years now! Crazy to realize that it has already been 3 years but also hard to remember what our lives were life before he joined us. To celebrate he wanted pasta and to watch the Bronco game…

Friday Fun Night

Now first off I don’t want you thinking we are one of those “weird homeschool families” who have no idea about real life. Our kids are involved in activities, have friends, play, watch movies and the Broncos, and are fairly normal every day kids. However if you had seen them Friday night you may have…

Happy 9th Birthday Leighton Reid!

9 years ago today after 41 hours of LONG labor Leighton made his entrance into this world and made me a mommy. It would take over an hour until the nurse would let me out of bed and down the hall to really see him for the first time instead of the quick glance I…

Korea Camp 2018

So I keep delaying writing this post because I want to include the photos that I took on my actual camera and not just the ones I took on my phone. Well….at this rate I might get the post written sometime in 2020, and so I decided to just use the few photos on my…

Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 2018

Sometimes in life I have really great ideas. Other times….well not so much. After finishing Imogene Pass Run last fall I decided I wanted a spring race and I wanted it to be pretty and not too long. Not too specific but those were my criteria. So in my google searching I stumbled upon the…
