The Newest Addition

Piper Mae arrived Saturday night at 10:30 weighing 6 lbs 7 ozs and looking absolutely beautiful!!
We are swimming in thankfulness and joy for the amazing gift that God has given us in another child. We've been home two days and Jason has already cried his way through every country song he knows about fathers and daughters. We are LOVING our new baby!!!

The Dandelion Pictures

Picking Dandelions

Who knew picking dandelions could be so much fun. There is an empty lot on our block that must look like a field of exotic wild flowers to the kids. They would have stayed there all day had there not been an art project for their dandelions to get back to. We decorated vases for their bouquets. Unfortunately dandelions don't hold up so well once they've been plucked from the ground.

The Reed Wedding is Coming!

We spent the morning in Estes Park checking out the outrageous back drop for Rachel and Brandt's wedding. It may well be covered in snow in two weeks, but we got to see it at its best.

More and more and more snow

A month or so of pleasant spring like weather and we thought we had seen the end of the snow. But now it seems as if we wake up to a new blanket nearly every morning. Sean is most disappointed, as he is always hoping to wear shorts. He usually asks Jason to check the weather first thing in the morning and then promptly goes for the shorts if the report shows a sunshine, regardless of the temperature. These pictures are from the first of the current round of snow... it seemed light at first and we let all the kids out to shovel. When tired of that, they left the shovels on the ground, not to be rediscovered for 48 hours or so. Sean was on his hands and knees looking for a while, but to no avail, we had to deal with out shoveled side walks.

More snow...

Jason and Sean were throwing snowballs at me in the kitchen. Thankfully I had a large piece of glass as protection. They also played snowball baseball and threw shovels full of snow at one another. Oh the fun a father and son can have together!


Excited is an understatement... These kids were outside eating snow before breakfast. I think they'll enjoy their new life in Colorado.
