Football Bracket…

So we aren’t huge football fans in our house. Basically we record the Bronco’s game and then on Sunday evenings after dinner and bath we watch 30-45 minutes of it and call it good. The kids would tell you that they are huge fans but I’m not sure they could name many of the players…

Ice Castle….

For Clint’s birthday which was on the 9th I decided to surprise him and all the kids and get tickets to go to the Dillon Ice Castle. I got tickets for the 16th because it is what worked best with schedules and so last week we headed up there. Clint had no idea where we…

First Meet of the Season…

On Sunday Leighton had his first gymnastics meet of the season. it was the big home meet too which was fun because my parents came to watch and so did Leighton’s good friend Kieran. And being the first meet of the season it went like one would expect, some good things and some rough things…

I’m an Aunt!

Last Friday the 27th at 4:02PM my brother and sister-in-law had their first baby, a baby girl. Johanna Sue weighed 6 pounds 14 ounces and everyone was healthy and doing well. My parents and I got to see her when she was just a few hours old. The kids haven’t met her yet but hopefully…

Birthday Hike….

For my birthday I wanted to go on a family hike. Not a bad idea if my birthday was sometime between April and October….but it’s not, it’s at the end of December. And sometimes in Colorado the end of December can feel like April….but not this year. We have had one of the coldest Decembers…

Playing Cars….

I have had a number of days off in a row lately and it has been so much fun just relaxing and playing with the kids. The other afternoon Clint had taken Leighton to gymnastics and then had to stop at the grocery store. So then the younger 4 and I got to play cars….

Christmas 2019…

Christmas this year was full of laughter, peace and just a good time. It started early with the kids getting their stockings and opening gifts from Clint and I, which included one lego set for everyone and then one other thing. The kids made us neat things as well, a candle holder from Caedmon, coffee…

Christmas Eve 2019…

We did things a little different than usual this year for Christmas Eve and it was kind of a decision in the 11th hour to do so. I love going to church on Christmas Eve, it is one of my favorite services every year, even though we’ve had some adventures during such services, like when…

Good Intentions….

So sometimes mommy comes up with good ideas or tries to make a tradition happen. And sometimes mommy is just so tired and worn out and despite her best intentions it just doesn’t go well. It started out well. I surprised the kids and Clint with matching jammies. Leighton and Caedmon had matching jammies when…

Denver Nutcracker…

Last Thursday 5 of us got to go down to Denver and watch a mid day performance of Colorado Ballet’s Nutcracker. We got tickets through Caedmon’s dance company and had a great day. The 2 littles had preschool and then got to spend the afternoon with Honey and Grandpa so they had a great day…
