Camp Out

We went camping with a few of our friends a few weeks ago and had a BLAST! With all the kids, nighttime was..... interesting. But the rest of the time was so much fun! We seriously have the greatest friends in the world and we're so lucky and blessed:) Oh, the last picture is my little panoramic view of where we were. We camped where the tiny little cluster of cars is over toward the left.

Letters to Braden

Here is a letter Lily wrote to Braden today. She is insisting on sending the picture that she colored but I don't know if I'll actually be able to let the it go because I love it so much and I want to put it in my journal!! My writing is super sloppy because I have to write fast while Lily tells me what to write. Here is what it says:

"Dear Braden,
     I want to make cookies with you.I want to play in the snow with you. I want to make a snowman with you. I want to make snow angels with you and snowballs.I want to put a carrot on the snowman and make a face and put a hat on it. I want to throw snowballs at each other with you.
Love, Lily"

Birthday Package

Today is Michael's birthday and he got a gigantic package in the mail from his bff ROYCE!

The girls were only excited about the packaging peanuts. They thought that was the REAL present and that Royce sent "fake snow" just for them. 

but this is what Royce REALLY sent. He asked me what Michael wanted for his birthday a few days ago and when I jokingly told him he would like Dublin Dr. Pepper and Big Red (some of Michael's favorite things from TX) I didn't expect him to actually send some! He must really love Michael!!!
