Hallie, Kemper cousin, turned 2 this past week. So the family went to this place called Pump It Up, I had never heard of it before. It is two huge rooms with the big blown up slides, and houses, that normally you would rent individually for parties. We had a blast, even us adults were really getting into it. The boys played King of the Hill in one of them. There was Pizza and presents after. I am thinking about having Kempers next party there, it was great.

So every year Chad and I, and my side of the family goes to McCall on Presidents weekend. It is so much fun. We play in the snow, go sledding, swimming at the hot springs, eat way too much food, play some serious Cataan, and sing star. Just fine family fun for all! It was so fun for the kids, Andie did fabulous on her first cabin trip. The weekend always ends too soon, and I look forward to the trip all year. We are hoping this was Kyles, (my brother) last year without a special woman in his life. We will have to wait and see, I wish she would hurry up, he isn't gettin any younger! I love ya Bro.

I love you Chad!

Valentines is here again! I am so thankful to my husband Chad, he is the best. I love this time of year so we can just celebrate the special people in our lives. I remember when Valentines was depressing cause boys were so lame. I know you all remember what I am talking about ladies. Those days are gone now, I only look forward to Valentines. Lets not forget the flowers and presents, which is just icing on the cake. So I want Chadwick to know he is the love of my life, the most important person to me, and my best friend. We have had so many good times, and I can't wait for what this next year has in store. I hope everyone has a great holiday with the ones they love.

We love you too Grandpa!

Kemper and his cousin Emersen got out of my parents hot tub last sunday to find him reading Lion King to Charlie. My dad is hilarious when he reads to the kids. He makes the voices all really funny, and he gets really into it himself. He couldn't get any of the character names right, even the kids were correcting him. "No Grandpa, its Jafar, not Jaffer" My dad is famous for buchering names. It took him a long time to figure out Kemper. We love him so much, and he is so great with the kids. Thanks Pa!

The Best Grandma Ever!!

I am so thankful for my mom, she is so great with all the grandkids. She always babysits and I can always call her for advice. Both of my kids just love her like crazy. I don't know what we would do without her. And she is so awesome when Chad and I go on trips together, she even sleeps over with the kids. Love you mom!

Last weekend Chad and I loaded up the kids, and Teyan and Jess (our friends) and we headed to McCall for the festival. We go every year, and it is great. Andie did super, and Kemp loved the sculptures. There was a ton of snow so we couldn't stay in McCall as long as we normally would. We Stayed two nights in Riggins wich is 40 minutes from McCall. We had a blast, we swam and ate, played games, saw lots of deer, and will do it again next year for sure.
