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…

O Christmas Tree 2019….

Last Friday found us in the cold picking out our Christmas Tree. We have been going to the same place for the past few years and we returned again this year. It is a family owned business that cuts and clears areas in Colorado and then uses the trees for Christmas Trees. The trees are…

Lots of snow

We got a lot of snow last week. To the tune of 18-20 inches. And it was super cold….and really it hasn’t warmed up all that much. The snow has been beautiful though. The kids have played in it quite a bit and on Wednesday my Dad brought the 4-wheeler over with some sleds. They…

Thanksgiving 2019….

As I sit in a fairly quiet ER this early Thanksgiving morning with my patients currently tucked in and I have a few minutes of quiet I have a chance to reflect on being thankful. I know I will gather this evening after hopefully a few hours of sleep with my family, my parents and…

Making Christmas…

I know we are still a few days before Thanksgiving and I’m typically not one to do Christmas things before Thanksgiving because I really enjoy just taking a month to reflect and be thankful. That being said I was looking ahead to December and given my work schedule, eye surgery, Nutcracker, and the day in…

Thankfullness

This month as we reflect on the year and our lives we are doing a thankfulness bucket at our house. In reality its a thankfulness popcorn bowl but it works. At least once a day usually during lunch or dinner we go around the table and ask everyone one thing that they are thankful for….
