Oh no, the Big 3-0

Happy 30th Birthday Blane! I'm so glad that you are my husband and I am so proud of all the things that you are doing in school. You are a great dad and I look forward to spending this life with you. You are the best! I love you.

Cowboy Christmas

Well, we spent Christmas in Texas this year with Blane's family and we had so much fun. Blane's youngest brother Brett got home from his mission in October and it was so great to have everyone together again. And I love that Lincoln loves Christmas so much. Christmas really does live in the hearts of children. It was so fun for him to be with his cousins on Christmas morning getting to see what Santa brought for everyone. We love our families so much and can't thank them enough for making our Christmas so special.                                                                                      
Ride em cowboy.  This picture is actually in Arizona. My grandma made him this stick horse that he loves to pieces.

Mimi helped the kids make gingerbread houses. We love you Mimi. 


So I know most of you have given up on me ever getting my blog together, but with the help of my sister (again), I think I have gotten it all figured out. So we got three weeks off for Christmas this year and we decided to take a trip. Blane works for Delta one night a week and so our family gets free flights which has been such a blessing to our family. So anyway, we got to go to a little ski town in Virginia and we had so much fun. The condo was fabulous and Blane's brother Randy and his family got to come out for a few days. Here are some fun pics!

 Lincoln was my little snowboarder and he did awesome! Right on dude!

     This is Loray Caverns in Virginia. They were gorgeous. Too bad Lincoln's bladder is the size of a small pea.

 Snow tubing near the condo. Even mom got in on the action.
We flew into Washington D.C. and drove to Virginia. We got to spend a few hours in downtown. It was really cold and my kids got cranky, but we got to see a few things.
