Sick Boys!

The boys have not been feeling so well so they have been doing a lot of laying around lately!!!! I keep finding Grey with his sippy cup and blankets and a pillow. That is my sign he is not feeling great!

They have even been snuggling together which just melts my heart!

Since they have been BLAH we had to cancel watching the Grinch with some friends and eating yummy cookies that were made. So a couple of days later they GREATLY enjoyed the cookies!!!
Being sick is just no fun! Lucky for us though they remain in good spirits despite having up to a 103.2 temp!!!
We took them to the doc and Greyson has pneumonia, which the doctor said means Owen probably has pneumonia as well!

SO lots of love, lots of snuggles, lots of movies have happened around here!!!!

Beautiful photos on base

One of the best parts of the snow here is that it makes our base absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!! This is a very historic base with many of the homes 100 years old!!! They have worked very hard to preserve many of the buildings and it is just gorgeous! ESPECIALLY in the snow!!!
This is the Generals house!!! SO AMAZING!!!
Looking across the parade field
And I am a little obsessed with the beautiful trees here in the snow!!!
The beauty of the snow just about makes these crazy negative temperatures worth it!!!!!
This southern girl is having to learn very quickly to adapt to this weather!!! Not quite there yet, but working on it !Smile

December Snow!

In Wyoming the wind is ALWAYS blowing! This makes the snow non existent in some spots, and feet high in others! We got quite a storm in early December. This was the front yard

It was just TOOOOO cold to send the boys out to play (like negative 19) So we brought some snow inside!
Of course we had to taste test!!!!

But it is still fun to play in!!!
He even shared with Maggie!!!
I am not quite sure what the right temp is to let the kids play in the snow…. definitely  not in the negatives… but what is ok?? I'm not sure!

Thanksgiving 2013

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends this year!!
I of course enjoyed decorating with fun fall things. I am trying to be a better collector of stuff so we are better prepared each year!

We all filled out what we were thankful for which was super fun! We then put them in glass ornaments and decorated.

Napkin Rings

Annie brought fun props for photos!

Unfortunately we did not take pictures of ALL of our guests, or of any of the food. We were chasing around 5 little ones under the age of 7!

But I promise the food was GREAT!!! And we had a TON of it!!!

My cuties!

It is hard to get pictures of two 1.5 year olds!!!
The one picture John would let me take of him!!!

A couple of days later we gave Greyson a Turkey leg. I think he liked it!!!


We had a great Thanksgiving with great friends. We have so much to be thankful for this year. We have been extremely blessed and God has shown us so much. We are so thankful for our health, our family, for our Savior, and for the great friends we have been blessed with!
