Sunday Fun...

...ATV rides around the house. The girls have so much fun. They squeal with delight as we go around and ask to go faster!

It's that time again, fall bear baiting. The girls have to be right in the middle of the prep.

Cora kept say, "yummy, mommy".

Award and things about me...

I've never gotten a blog award before! Enter my friend over at . The rules of this award are simple: list 7 things about yourself and pass the award on to 7 other bloggers. So here I go!

1. I am deathly scared of snakes. Any kind. I have nightmares after I've seen one. During movies I have to cover my eyes.

2. I absolutely love hunting! Bears and deer are my favorite right now, though I'm looking forward to hunting for moose this year.

3. I do not like cities! I don't mind visiting, but I pray that I will not have to live in a city.

4. I love dancing crazy with my girls and being all goofy with them.

5. I love costume parties. I have loved dressing up since I was a little kid and I still really do! Can you believe that, even at 32?

6. I love singing really loud with the radio or any music playing.

7. Cooking is one of my favorite past times. I really enjoy trying new recipes.

I'm passing this award on to:

Little project...

Last year, mom and dad gave us this entertainment center, not exactly what I was looking for but we didn't have anything and I thought I could make it work. Though it didn't happen until this last visit (a year later) that I got it finished. I brought it back to California with us and dad helped me fix it up!



I love the way it looks. You really can't even tell it's the same unit.

Thanks for all your help, Dad!

Weekend Happenings

This weekend we had some great fun. It started with Lucas taking me out for my birthday to the Red Bird (a wine bar and restaurant) in Missoula and we shared Champagne Fondue (which was amazing with pears, bread and bison) and some really great wine, then we went to a movie. It was great just being with Lucas and having some alone time.

Saturday I went grocery shopping and Lucas had some girl time. They took a hike down to the pond and went frogging and looked at the beaver homes and beaver damage and just had a great time with daddy.

Happy 35th Anniversary,

Dad & Mom

May God bless you with many wonderful years ahead!

I love you both so very much.

One of those days...

We started with a bowl of cheerios all over the floor this morning (wish I would have taken a picture).
Then I thought the day could only go up from here, but while I was exercising, this is what Cora was doing.

Mayo and sour cream all over everything!

Thus another clean up! Time to really mop tonight.
