A Very Loved Pup

Gracie is sure loved by all of us! Even our extended family loves her. I never knew how much she would add to our family and I'm so glad that I said yes to the dog!

Snowboard Dude

This past week, K decided he wanted to start Snowboarding.  It turns out that he LOVES it.  It is fun to watch him and hear him talk about a new love.

 He has done well for it being his first time too.  He spent 8 hours one day over break practicing.  Now he has not interest in the skiing. The other day he told me that he wanted me to drop him off at the ski hill and give him my phone.  He then said that he would just give me a call at home when he was done so I could come and pick him up. I love the way that boy thinks sometimes. I smiled and reminded him that he is 8 not 15!   I think it is official, we have a snowboarding dude on our hands! 


Every year Grandma and Grandpa A treat all of us to a play and a nice dinner.  This year the play was ELF and we LOVED it.  It was kid friendly and so colorful.  The acting was great and we laughed and laughed.  I give ELF 5 stars. 

 After the play went to Axel's one of our favorite places to celebrate.  We had excellent service and outstanding food.  It was truly an amazing night of celebrating. 

It is such a fun afternoon and evening to spend with family.  We all enjoy going to the play and of course a fancy dinner.  I feel like this exposes the kids to the theater and the arts.  They look forward to it just as much, if not more than Jon and I.  What a wonderful way to kick off our Christmas celebrations.  Thank you Mom and Dad for the wonderful gift year after year.  Love you.
