We had a great time up at the cabin on New Years this year. There was a ton of snow this year, compared to most years. It was extremely cold Рabout 6 degrees for the highs and -2 or so for the lows at night.

We didn’t have near the crowd this year, I am guessing Paul’s snoring last year scared most of them off?

We had a great time getting away and the kids had a blast. (Though we are wondering when they will run out of places to hide upstairs? They have been playing hide and seek for years now. How many hiding places can there be in a small cabin?)

The pictures of the sparklers didn’t turn out, but here are some pictures that we did get.

Family Night

With all the struggles we all go through everyday, it is always nice to have the simple things make it back into your lives. We have discovered that the simplest outings are the funnest. Our ward has made August family month. We took that to heart this year. With no scouts or other meetings they have given us a list of family activities to take advantage of. This has been one of the kids favorite outings. It seems that we have taken a lot of things for granted through the years. We always do the big things with the kids like trips, camping, snowmobiling but it is the DSC00448simplest trip to the park that they enjoy the most. We have done this for two weeks in a row and Chase is loving it. We go get a cheep pizza and head out to the first park we can find. Spending a few hours away from home, stress, the business in our basement that we both get so wrapped up in, and just spend a few hours running around the play ground and playing a good game of catch. This trip Colten was at football practice, he always has something going on, but he will be making it to all the other family nights we have planned. This is one thing that we are going to incorporate in into our lives from now on.
