So Christmas came and it was GREAT! It was a wonderful Christmas, it snowed Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Now that's what I call a WHITE Christmas!!! We got some good presents. Scott got some snowboarding goggles and he wears them around the house since we haven't had time to go snowboarding quite yet. I got Guitar Hero for my laptop and it rocks! The snow hasn't stopped falling from the sky for about 2 weeks now, so my dad decided to go buy 2 snowmobiles on Christmas Eve he couldn't resist with all this snow. Now we get to go up to the cabin in the winter time too!

Winter is here!

Winter is finally here! For thanksgiving we all went up to the cabin and stayed up there for a couple of nights. It was quite interesting staying up there with 11 people, the cabin isn't all that big. We shot guns, did some puzzles, and we even cut down a Christmas tree! When we got home we put up our tree and it was so UGLY! It was big and awkward and kept falling over! On one of the sides it had no branches and it wasn't much better on the other side. So, I ended up going to Walmart and buying a nice fake tree that stays standing up! This past week has been freezing, 2 weeks ago it was in the 50s, now the snow is falling and the wind is blowing! We have some massive ice sickles hanging off our house they are huge!!! There is snow all over and it's great!

The Christmas trees! The one on the right was ours, it doesn't look so bad now, but it was UGLY!

The fam!

We went to the cabin once again this past weekend! There was snow forecasted, so Scott thought it would be best if he brought his snowboard just in case we got snowed in. HA! Ya it did snow a bit but didn't stick all that well.  We took some family pictures while we were up there too! There are more pictures but the internet is being way slow and well....I'm not all that patient.

Ya, so that's all.



This past weekend we went up to my parents cabin and it poured rain the ENTIRE time...it was awesome!!! The thunder was so loud it shook the cabin all night long! We all had big plans to go on a 4-wheeler ride and the rain made it so much more exciting! Allie, my dad, Scott, and I went (my mom and Haydon were wimps) and we got soaked! It was a great weekend!


Today I walked into Adri's room and she was playing kitchen with her alligator. Adri packs that thing everywhere, usually little girls have babies or barbies, but not her. . . she has an alligator!

My parents built a cabin this summer and it's AWESOME! I love camping now! I hated the whole getting dirty and not taking a shower thing, but now I get to be clean and have fun!!! We love it!

The cabin!

This weekend was the Air Show out at the air base. There were tons of huge jets that we could go in and look at and....the Thunderbirds came and put on a little show for us! It was pretty cool!

New Vehicle!!!!

Well Scott and I decided that we needed a new vehicle!!! We got a car last December and have replaced the engine TWICE in 3 months!!!!! So we decided to rid that piece of crap out of our lives and get something a little more reliable. Scott found a guy in Boise who was willing to trade his Toyota 4runner for our Honda, so we jumped at the chance to get rid of it!!! Now we have a vehicle we can take in the mountains and not have to take my car and chance getting yet ANOTHER flat tire! YAY!



I love my job! Feeding the ducks and swimming, what more can I ask for?

What a successful day!!!!


Scott and I have a lot of free time, so when we are bored we go swimming at my parents, and when we are really bored we record our swimming time fun!



This summer has involved lots of camping! My parents are building a cabin up in the mountains so most of our time has consisted of staying up there. We've done lots and lots of four-wheeling and lots and lots of eating! This past week I got to go to Girls camp for our church and had loads of fun! My mom, sister, aunt, 3 cousins, and a sister in-law were all there! It was like a little family reunion!
