Happy 7th Anniversary!

This post is much overdue! For our 7th anniversary Dan and I headed to Breckenridge, CO to go skiing! We hadn't been since Dan visited me in Korea before we were married, and before that it was high school for both of us. We both did well, no broken bones to report!
Other then skiing, my favorite part was going out to eat. Some wonderful friends of ours gave us great restaurant recommendations so we were set!
Another highlight was night skiing. It was awesome! Do you recognize this guy?


We love taking a trip every year for our anniversary. Thanks so much to Grandma and Gramps for watching the munchkins so we could get away! When I went to pick up Davis and Isaac, Davis had already asked if he could stay 5 more sleeps at their house. He wasn't ready to leave!

Feeling Glad

Here was one precious, funny moment with Davis as I was putting him to bed last night.

Mommy: "Davis, what is one thing that you are glad God has given you?"

Davis: "My head"

Mommy: "Why?"

Davis: "I don't know"

Mommy: "Well, I'm glad God gave me my head so that I can have eyes to see and a nose to smell and a mouth to taste things."

Davis (emphatically): "And a mouth to TALK, thats why I'm glad I have a head"

Mommy (laughing): "You sure love to talk don't you?"

Davis: "Yes!!!"

And he SO SO does. Sometimes too much for his own good, but he is following in his Mommy's footsteps. I was nicknamed motor mouth by my first grade teacher and my mom says that common words out of her mouth when I was a child were "if you'd only keep your mouth shut, Ellen, you wouldn't get in trouble!" Oh Davis, this talking will probably be a blessing sometimes and sometimes, not so much!

Brothers at 3 and 18months

I haven't taken any pictures in the last few days, so here are a few before we took our Christmas decorations down. We've been having a few "snow days" these last couple of days. The weather predicted snow, schools closed and the snow came! Less then an inch, but it came! Enough to build a little snowman and get pulled around in a sled. Hmmm... those would have been good things to take pictures of!



Happy New Year!

Christmas Week Festivities!

#1. Davis's birthday celebration! I don't have a ton of pictures, but we had a really fun birthday with Davis. He woke up and watched a show. (per his request.) and then had some birthday breakfast. Afterwards, he opened his presents. We really tried to make it a very special day for our very special little boy!




His gift from us was a toddler scooter. He watches the neighborhood boys ride their scooters all around and has often mentioned that he can't wait to be a big boy to ride a scooter. Since his birthday, his tricycle is still number one, but hopefully he'll enjoy this also!

#2. Isaac's first haircut! I have been having a really hard time touching any of the hair on Isaac's head because it is curly right now. I have been afraid that it will disappear! Well, this past week Gramps trimmed his hair for the first time and it already makes him look like such a big boy. Gramps also gave Davis his first hair cut.



Please curls, don't disappear!!


Phew. Still there. Thanks Gramps for my haircut!

#3. Happy Birthday Jesus! It was so much fun celebrating with my entire side of the family and so special to all be together!


The stockings were hung. :) That is a lot of people! Hmmm... wish I had a group picture!!


Isaac and Rosie Christmas morning. I wish I had more pictures. I am going to have to make a few requests from my wonderful sister as she was the photographer of Christmas. :)
