North pole village & nativity scene

Posted on

My mother in law gave us her north pole village, this is only a fraction of them. Incredibly beautiful and so thankful to have them in our home. She also gave us the nativity scene that Matt remembers his mom making in the early 80’s. Priceless family heirlooms that we will forever cherish.

Thanksgiving 2017

Posted on

A day filled with 19 people, family, friends, children, grandchildren, four soldiers that became friends, thankfulness, two turkeys, countless sides, a multitude of pies, nerf wars, a broken trampoline, scooter races, Turkey hands, and lots of laughter. It was a perfect day!

Also, when you over hear one of the soldier say “this is the weirdest Thanksgiving ever!” you somehow know they had fun too and will likely never forget your family either.

Halloween 2017

Posted on

This year was one we hadn’t experienced before, but I have to agree with our 12 year old when she said “this was a crazy Halloween, but my favorite one, because it was with all of our family and that’s all that matters!”. It was chilly and decided to start pouring raining when we got down the block from our home. The kids were still amused, but didn’t seem to mind when we decided it was a bust and I would run to the corner store to get everyone a treat of their choice. Walgreens saved the night for our kids and grandkids! Rain or shine, fun was still had!
