We started our this beautiful 2019 with a hike and time with Mimi and Poppi. We had a wonderful visit with them and were sad to see them head back to Montana. We love them
It was a FULL January. December felt so sleepy and cozy and January was like hitting the ground running and we had a lotttt to do. But you know, we made it through. Because we have each other. And because we walk and talk and laugh and hold each other up. I’m thankful for this crew!
Bama might have lost but we had a wonderful time with the Grammy and Papa crew.
Sledding day on the hillside was so incredibly fun. Sam had a blast and so did his parents. Ben is the best, have I mentioned that yet.
Hiking up around Blueberry Loop below Flattop we took in amazing sights then wondered down the Powerline Trail for some forest patrol and my goodness those two are cute.
Walking on one of my favorite trails (White Spruce to Blueberry Hollow) always makes me happy. It was just the perfect trail and, gosh, these two make me happy.
Skiing at Hilltop with Emma was a treat for Uncle Ben who got this day of fun for Emma as her Christmas gift. They skied 13 runs and had a great time. We’ve got the sweetest little niece. Love her.
Painting was such a fun new adventure for Sam. He kept trying to eat the paint. I think he’s quite a prodigy.
Walking out at Eagle River Nature Center was such a lovely time. The mountains were big and so were the smiles. Love being outside with these two.
Hiking up in the hills with these two makes my heart sing. They are brilliant; the lights of my life. My every day joys and what I sing thanks for daily.
Skiing with Blaine is one of Ben’s favorite things to do. And they had a brilliant day in the mountains.
Hiking with my buddies one last time before February. We sledded around the hillside and were thankful for our time together.
And, oh the snuggles!
And… Sam is now 15 months old!
He likes: Swimming with friends. And playing with friends. He loves toys but his favorite thing to do at home is read books with mom and dad. He loves to snuggle. He loves mama snuggles, we spend a lot of time doing that. He loves hiking and walking and being carried by dad. He loves being a big kid but mostly is our little baby and just wants to be with us. And that is just my favorite thing.
He dislikes: Teething. And so does mama.
He can: He’s soooo close to walking. He can move around on two feet while holding just one of my hands. He can push his car around everywhere and cruise around furniture. He can smile and hug like nobody’s business. He so good at figuring things out and so curious about learning. He’s growing by leaps and bounds and is so very smart.
I gotta say, I love this boy with my whole big heart.
