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.
