Other Pics from Our Trip...Thanks, Kel!

these smart guys went to the movies, while i tried my 2nd attempt at skiing. why didn't i go with them???????
there was a lady at the top of the mountain who said, "What a beautiful family!!" she took their picture and gave them all candy!! don't you love reagan's jacket (on the left)??? that's shane's OP jacket from the 80's!!!

these girls were so awesome the whole trip...great skiers and so quiet on the suburban on the way down and back!!!

Weekend With Sarah

we had a rare treat, we got to see sarah before the summer!! payton is having a blast with her!!

11:11 ~ Make a Wish!

Guess what my wish was after being on the road since 6:30 am???

yep, we had a blow out!! thankfully we had a whole slew of men, who changed it out very quickly. we got back to the church about 2:30!! we were home in bed by 4!! we had a great, great time, with great, great friends!!!

Happy Birthday Jackson!!

not only did we celebrate new year's eve, we also celebrated jackson's 2nd birthday...

making high altitude cupcakes!! :)

waiting for someone to find a match to light the secret smokers on our trip!!

he got cars, trucks, trailors, and trains...

Try, Try Again...

ok, so i thought i would try again...shane has the video on his phone, but i can't get it on here just yet!! plus, i didn't want you to be jealous of my mad skillz! (you can use a "z" when you're as good as i am!!)

this is the only picture i have of shane & me!! :( **oops...i just realized that's reagan, not shane!!
Praise the Lord from the earth,
You great sea creatures and all the depths;
Fire and hail, snow and clouds;
Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
Mountains and all hills;
Fruitful trees and all cedars;
Beasts and all cattle;
Creeping things and flying fowl;
Kings of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
Both young men and old maidens;
Old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for His name alone is exalted;
For His glory is above the earth and heaven.
~Psalms 148:7-13
i must admit, i am very thankful that i am a sinner saved by grace...there was very little praising going on, on top of that mountain. i told shane, if i were church of Christ, i would definitely have to be saved again!!
these 2 pictures show the view i saw most of the time, minus the mangled skis!! i never could get up unless i took off both of my skis. we won't even talk about my graceful dismount from the ski lift!! i didn't even make it down the bunny slopes. i was so tired from falling down, taking off my skis, then getting up, going 6 inches, falling down, taking off my skis, getting up, and so on and so on. i finally just walked down the mountain!!! which is no easy task in those goofy ski boots!! but i really wanted to reach my goal of leaving with no broken bones!!!! yay me!

Selling the House on the Mountain...

shane was talking to our realtor!
