New Posts

I am trying to get caught up on all of the pictures I have taken over the past weeks, so keep scrolling down to see all of the new posts! More to come soon!

Just A Swingin'

These pictures were made while we were in Alabama for Christmas. The kids were playing on the old tree swing that Pawpaw hung when I was a kid. It has seen its better days. In fact, it doesn't even have a seat anymore, but the kids had a great time playing on it.

Possum's First Deer

We have a very short rifle season (only 2 weeks). Joel and Possum hunted hard those 2 weeks trying to get Possum a shot. Needless to say the season ended without a kill. The first weekend of the new year is a free youth hunting weekend. Only kids can rifle hunt. Possum got a new rifle for Christmas from Joel and I and he got to try it out that weekend. That Saturday afternoon he finally got a shot and harvested a deer. He was as excited as if it had been a huge buck!

Possum's Squirrel

Possum was able to harvest his first squirrel this year. He was an excited little boy!

Super Bowl Fun

After church Sunday night we went to some friend's house to watch the Super Bowl. Our host, Doug, made this football stadium out of snack foods. It was a hit with everyone, especially the kids!! Half Packers/Half Steelers cake that I made for the party.

We had a great time watching the game, eating, and hanging out with our friends!

Snow Days

We are having our fair share of snow around here. When it hasn't been too cold to be outside the kids have had some fun playing. These pictures were made on different snow days over the past few weeks.

Several friends came over to play with us. The big boys had as much fun as the little ones did!

Squirrel built a cute little snowman.

Warming up with soup, hot chocolate, and homemade chocolate rolls.

Rabbits, Ducks, and Geese

Some end of the year kills!

Movie Night and Game Night

The past few weeks we have had some fun activities at church to pass the cold winter nights. The children had movie night and enjoyed the old Disney classic "Swiss Family Robinson", pizza, and tons of candy!

We also enjoyed game night with lots of fun board games and good food. Joel stayed at the Scrabble table and challenged anyone that would come along.

Brady and I serenaded everyone!
