The Snuggy

Mark decided for Christmas gifts this year all of the siblings had to make something homemade for each other. Mat was lucky, we got his name...
Mark wanted to make him a snuggy, but not just any snuggy, a WAR snuggy. Mat collects army stuff, and this seemed to be the perfect thing... It was hilarious to make, and Mat loved it! Go figure. :)

The Jarvis's

Ever since our friends Andrea and Kasey moved to Utah in October the kids have been DYING to go and see them. We finally did! They live up by Park City, so playing in the snow was really fun for us, there was a lot of it.
Cute Lucy!

Jessie the Unicorn

We miss them again already, we'll have to come out soon. Thanks for letting us stay with you!

Visiting Utah

We drove out to Utah this past week to visit family. We had planned to go out there for Thanksgiving, but due to bad weather we didn't go, and rescheduled. We first visited Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle Dave and Uncle Mat.
Curren and Grandpa played a mean game of checkers.
Kylie came over to hang out with us, they made a gingerbread house.
We then drove to Temple Square to see the lights. It was so beautiful! Everybody loved it.
We also took a tour of the Conference Center.

Taekwondo Belt Testing: Yellow Belt

Curren had belt testing again for Taekwondo, it is every 3 months, if they feel you are ready they will invite you to belt test. He was testing for his Yellow Belt. He did awesome! He got another trophy for good behavior at home and at school. Good boy Curren. He had to break another board, to symbolize breaking a bad habit, this time the bad habit he wants to break is "to stop interrupting people"

We love you!

We headed up to Anacortes on Friday to see our friends the Weaver's. We went out on their boat to San Juan Island, to the town Friday Harbor. It was a beautiful day!! I love the San Juan Islands, it's so pretty there.

We had to stop at Cabela's on the way of course...

We went bowling in Friday Harbor, it was fun!

I loved the color of this boat!! Loved it... I keep staring at it :)

Thanksgiving Weekend

Nate and Julie came through and stayed with us for a few days last week, it was so good to see them again!
We were planning on going to Utah for Thanksgiving, the weather was awful though. We ended up staying home for Thanksgiving instead.

After Montana, weddings and fun, I headed to Wyoming to see my Grandma, and Aunt Karen and Uncle Wade, and more cousins :)
I love my friends and family a lot. I am so glad I got to see them.

My cousins

I stayed with Uncle Hal and Aunt Laurie while I was in Billings. It was so good to see them, and get to know their kids! My cousins, check out how awesome they are (and grown up).


I headed back to Montana for the first time in 5 years in October. My friend Catherine was getting married to Kyle and I had to go! Catherine and I have been friends since high school, and I am happy to still be a close friend to her. Here are some pictures... I didn't get very many though!

Trillium Lake and the Mountain of Hood

Today we decided we had to go somewhere, it was a sunny clear day outside and we were both home for the weekend (a rare thing as of late). We loaded up the canoe and headed to Trillium Lake, by Mt. Hood for the day. I know you are all asking, is this lake for real? It looks too good to be true. Yes my friends, it does exist, it's heaven on earth!
Even the yellow dog got to come along.
