7 Years Ago...

7 years ago we started out on this wonderful journey and what a journey it has been.

Looking forward to where God is going to lead us next.
I love you Lucas and I love being your wife. Thank you for this beautiful journey so far. I'm looking forward to the many, many more years by your side.
Happy Anniversary, Babe!

Thanksgiving was a beautiful day, 20's and sunny. Grandpa and Grandma Swanson came and spent a couple of days together. Thanksgiving day while the turkey cooked we took a little hike around the house to the "moss hotel" (the girls named it that because of the moss that grows there) and to the cedar grove behind the house.

One of my favorite pictures of the love of my life.

Chocolate martini's to celebrate with!

Our little Erin loved her thanksgiving dinner, squash, apples and rice.

My first turkey stuffed with pears, cinnamon, allspice and lemons, with a cherry/pear glaze. 

Our place cards were oriental boxes stuffed with caramel corn!

What we are truly thankful for, family and friends that worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We celebrated with Lucas' parents and our neighbor Mitch.

The bush that Cora "planted" in the yard!

Cutting the Christmas Tree

Erin 10 months already?

I missed Erin's 9 months birthday, so here we're at 10 months. 
She had her first ATV ride and loved it, as you can tell.

First Christmas tree cutting! Look at that smile!
She has three almost 4 teeth (her bottom two and top almost two). She loves sitting and playing with her toys and rolling around. She's army crawling and real crawling now. I just love her blue eyes. 

Just the smile I love waking up to each morning.
