Christmas at Home

While it was very chilly outside, we spent a warm and cheery Christmas right at home. 

We also got Grandma on Christmas day!! We shared hugs, laughter, Grandpa stories, and love. It was a very merry Christmas.

Aunt Bev

We were treated to a little time and love from Aunt Bev last week. We love when she comes to visit!

With family in town now, we had a wonderful gathering with Paige & Luke as well!


Hadley's basketball season is already underway. She's playing for the Altoona team this year, in preparation for a transfer  to the public school next fall. So far, it has proven to be a great move. Last weekend, she had her second tournament. While they did not win, they definitely showed improvement and Hadley loved playing.
She's the one in the air :)

Her very own cheering section.

Belated Birthday Party

With Hadley's Birthday so close to both Thanksgiving and hunting season, her party is often pushed around a little to accommodate. She invited her two best friends, and her two best sisters, for an evening of singing, piano playing, hide & seek, pizza and cake, and lots of laughter.

Thanksgiving 2017

We spent a lovely Thanksgiving up north with the Anderson family, enjoying delicious food, hunting stories, and laughter. And while we were missing special people at the table, they were never far from our hearts.
Helpers in the kitchen.

Black Friday shoppers.

And thanks to Governor Walker, Piper was able to go hunting at the ripe age of 9.

I'm not sure who was more excited! She made a perfect shot at a 110 yards and dropped the doe in her tracks. Guess we have another hunter in the family!
We finished the weekend by celebrating Grandpa A's first year in heaven by eating his favorite dessert, pineapple upside down cake.

Bring horse cupcakes to school.

Wake up to Grammie at our house.
Went out to the stand with Dad.
And finished up the day with her favorite pie.
Happy 11th birthday, sweet and joyful Hadley.
