About Me

My photo
We both grew up in Montana, and after high school we even lived in the same town, but did not meet until Kevin returned from his mission. Kevin served in the South American Mission of Asuncion Paraguay and upon is return in 2001, we were introduced by none other than his match making sister, Janna. We have been married for 8 years. We have four children. Our oldest son, Carson is 8, Rosario (Rosie) is 4, Olivia is two and Benson is 6 months.

Christmas Card Pics

These are some of the the shots of the kids the day I took Christmas Card pictures. Believe it or not it was the middle of December. The beginning of the month we had record snow and it was freezing, I think the low was close to 25 below with wind chill. This just happened to be a nice Great Falls winter day.
The weather here reminds me a lot of Denver. It'll be nice one day and nasty the next, but you can always count on it to change quickly. I think that's why I love Great Falls so much, you don't feel socked in like the way you feel sometimes in the Missoula Valley where I grew up. I love the mountains that surround you there, but they don't allow for the wind to blow the clouds and grey away.
How about summers in Missoula and winters in G.F.? That would be great!

Are you comfey?

This is not the first time I've found Olivia sleeping sideways in her crib. I think she finds this position pretty comfey.

Great Horned Owl

In November we took the kids to Benton Lake to look at wildlife. Just as we started our adventure we were pleasantly surprised to see a Great Horned Owl perched in a tree just off the road. The kids loved being so close to it.


Surprisingly it was not snowing on Halloween. Generally it is; it was great to walk with the older kids and push the babes in the stroller and not be freezing. My nieces Savannah(1yr. ) and Madison (5yrs.) spent the evening with us.

Wow, time to catch up!

I have missed about 5 months of news around our house. I need to catch up. Kevin will be going to Reno for work this weekend so I fully intend on updating my blog. I have to post lots of pictures including our trip to San Diego and our growing family. Hang in there, posts are on their way.

The Visitors Center

The Visitors Center
When Kevin's dad was set apart to be Mission President of the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission the family went to Salt Lake City for the weekend. It was a great experience, and hopefully the kids will remember meeting an apostle of the Lord. I don't know when this many of us will be together for a picture so I'm keeping it on my blog until his folks return.
