Winter wonderland 

I’m so thankful for the snow. The Larsen children needed an energy outlet and it finally came last night. 

Today will be spent checking ski boot sizes and praying we have enough for everyone. 

Carl and I were able to sneak a walk in around Whitney Park late last night.  


Christmas Tree

Our first year of cutting down our own tree… 


Max’s notes

I can never get enough of these left on my desk. He leaves me little pictures everyday. It’s at these moments where I want to freeze time forever. I want to nuzzle my face into his neck and listen to his low giggle. I don’t want my baby to grow up. 



We have so much to be thankful for. 

The kids started the day watching the Turkey Trot 5k.  It’s kind of becoming tradition. They wave to all the runners and every year someone stops in to say hello. 

Next year we should offer hot chocolate or something.

I feel so blessed we can have the world around our table. 


Max’s surgery

My little man needed a hernia repair yesterday. He was such a brave trooper. He seriously could not have been a better kid.  

Out numbered 

Little Miss was out numbered all afternoon and through supper.  She was a  good sport about it all and I don’t know if she even knew the girls were gone. 

Jack lost his first tooth

He earned $4 for pulling the tooth – $2 from  mom and $2 from Grandpa. 

Another fun bonus is that it happened at the elk ranch. 


Fancy meal

Silas and Adie made a fancy meal the other day.
