Merry Christmas!

I know that it has already come and gone, but Merry Christmas! We hope that you all had a great one, because we sure did! We started it off by going to our traditional Christmas eve bowl (where Dario won for the third year in a row with a whopping 208)! We woke up on Christmas morning and opened about half of our presents before Hunter decided he had had enough. So we took a break and went to my parents house for a yummy breakfast. Then we came back home and for the second year in a row made a tasty turkey dinner to share with our family! We then finished the day by opening the rest of our presents! It really was a great Christmas, filled with yummy food, good company, and lots of memories! Here are some pictures...

Thanks to all those who helped make our Christmas "Merry and Bright"!

"Snow" much fun!

So we got a bit of snow here the other day, and Hunter and I thought we'd go and check it out. Not to mention this would be Hunter's first time playing in the snow!

Well, when I first opened the front door he was excited to see the Christmas lights and the look of the white snow... then he took a couple of steps into the snow and panicked when he couldn't see his feet or the ground. It took a couple of minutes and some convincing that it was really ok, and then he was fine. First time in the snow: Successful!

Go Jazz Go!

So we took Hunter to his first live Jazz game over the weekend! It was a lot of fun and Hunter did amazing! It was fun to watch him as he clapped along with the crowd, danced to the music, and watched the players run around!

The first of the game, intensely watching!

Nice view!

The end of the game.

So he didn't quite make it through the whole game, but it was close!

Our Little Tigger

We took Hunter around to see the family on Halloween!

Look! Hunter even carved a Tigger in his pumpkin! Ok not really... but Dario did, and he did an amazing job!

Sugar Cookies

This was Hunter's first time making sugar cookies, and he sure enjoyed himself! It was kinda messy, but oh so fun! I think Hunter's most favorite part was eating the cookie dough, followed closely by poking the cookies! My favorite part was watching Hunter have so much fun!

Bedroom Makeover!

One day I was telling Dario what I would do if I were given a certain amount of money, that is, makeover our room! He laughed at me wondering where I come up with some of my ideas, he could think of some more fun ways to spend money... Also, he couldn't see anything wrong with our room and was a little reluctant to paint over our red walls... witch was part of my plan... So, I let it go and didn't press the issue. Well, our anniversary came around and he was sooo excited to give me my card... Low and behold it had the exact amount of money in it that I had mentioned when telling him my plans for our room! I love my Dario! So, it took a little while to find the time and the right items to redo our room with, but it is done! I love our new room!




What good would a post be without a picture of Hunter boy!

Once again its the end of the month and I find myself needing to update our blog! So before the final hours of the month slip away I best post something! Life for our family is going great! Dario's job is going good, I'm keeping busy at home, and Hunter is always finding something to get into, or onto! The only thing that is not necessarily great is that Hunter is growing up way to fast. Some things that he has been up to lately are climbing, running, coloring, saying Bbye, waving, blowing kisses, kissing mom, turning on the radio, eating pretzels, folding his arms for prayers, dancing, and eating all the raspberries he can get his hands on! Here are a few pictures of life in the month of September!

An afternoon at the park...

Eating at the table like a big boy!
Just playing outside...

Pickin raspberries!

Hunter's first corndog!
Like always, I am posting this blog with the intentions of updating again soon... We'll see what really happens!

This past week we went camping up at Yellowstone with the Foote family! This was our first visit to Yellowstone, also Hunter Boy's first time camping, and he did great! He loved playing in the dirt, seeing all the animals, and watching the fire! The weather really was just right, and the scenery was beautiful! Here are some (a lot) of pictures, in no particular order. Enjoy!

Hunter with Kason and Rylie. While Hunter was on Kason's lap, Kason kept saying " too big, too big!" It was pretty funny!

I am pretty sure that this guy was fighting the urge to charge us! We were just minding our business when he comes right up on our path! I was scared...

The water in this hot pot was so clear, it was gorgeous... also a little eerie because it was so deep you couldn't see the bottom...

Old Faithful!

Quite spectacular!

This was our tour guide... I know, nice view!

Hunter and his Momma!

In the early morning.

Hunter and his Dad... and some buffalo!

The kids, grandkids, and grandpuppy!

Us with Grandma and Grandpa.... at the top of a very large waterfall!

Hunter and Dad checking out the very large waterfall.

My boys!

Some more buffalo!

Just chillin!

We couldn't keep him off the bikes... thanks Kason and Rylie!

Thanks for coming!

Thanks to my family for making this a fun filled trip! Love you guys!
