Wow, 5 years!

 Today Lucas and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary! It's pretty amazing 5 years has gone by so quickly. I'm so blessed by such a loving and wonderful husband and I look forward to many, many years to come.
Just the beginning of our story...

... and much more to come!

Cutting my losses

Some days things just don't go the way you really want them to go. Like this day. I couldn't find my tried and true sugar cookie recipe so I made a different one and they tasted gross! No flavor. But I really didn't want to waste them so I started frosting them and one whole plate fell in the dirty sink and the box fell on the floor. So I cut my losses and found my good recipe and started over.

A First For Lucas!!

Last night right before dark Lucas shot his very first mountain lion! It's pretty amazing! I'm so proud of Him. It's really hard to get a lion without hound dogs, but he watched for it over a dead elk kill. It was a 110 lb female! From the tip of her nose to the tip of her tail she was at lease 7 foot.
Sorry, the pictures are a bit dark and bloody. It's hard to cover the blood on white snow!

Thanksgiving weekend in Pictures

These thanksgiving pictures are long over due, but here you are. We were all bad and didn't take very many pictures at all. Oh, well. Next year right? It was just a quite day with family and neighbors and friends.

Bounty of desserts (the only food picture taken)!
setting up the camera for family pictures

I really like this one, but it was just a little over exposed.
wasn't it beautiful weather? The girls enjoyed not having to get all bundled up every time they went outside.

First Haircut

 The other day I took the scissors to Audrey. She had never had a hair cut so I thought it was time. She loves bouncing her hair around now.

Last Day of Deer Hunting

On Sunday afternoon Lucas and I went out for the last day of deer season trying to get me a buck. I passed up quite a few does during the season hoping for a buck.  So off we went trudging (and I do mean trudging) through knee to thigh high snow. But no buck for me this year. I'm not to sad, with getting a moose I kind-of just didn't care this year. There is always next year!

I hope you have a wonderful day remembering all that God has blessed us with and rejoice in Him for His amazing bounty.

 Chilling after playing hard in the snow for 2 hours.

 Snow, snow, snow snow! This is more snow then we usually have at this time of year, but we're not complaining. We love it. 8 inches just last night!

My little helper

Love this one!
