17 years ago a picture of Brett in this pose was taken at this spot.   

Snow Angel

Crashed, but not broken, YET!
   First trip to Sled Hill=an opportunity to vomit. The list of places keeps growing.  Camille, it is the same  concept for puke or beads, there is a top and a bottom to the bag!  Love Dad. 

Christmas morning readfest!
Brett captured this picture of Gabe lining up his cars and Camille singing to them in a performance.

Happy 7th Birthday to my RockStar.  Yes, she is still on the stage.

Minute to Win It!
Oh, what fun it is to ride in a (two) horse open (bright red) sleigh
 (through the snow covered river and woods).   

There is a song called Lemonworld.  This is it.

All I Want for Christmas...

I asked Gabe if he could only have one "tangible thing" for Christmas, what would it be?

He replied boisterously:  A FOX. 

As if that were no problem or tangible.

Feliz la di da

We wanna wish you a Merry Christmas, We wanna wish you a Merry Christmas
from the bottom of our hearts... Feliz la di da (says Gabe) Feliz la di da...  We felt the spirit of Christmas while caroling at Grandma Gladys'.     

The ladies were joyful as well!

Frosty the Snowman was her favorite to sing (she loves to sing LOUD and most people know it) at her school's Holiday Program. Yay Camille!

At Clear Lake Elementary they have a Character program that helps reinforce the traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship. Kids are recognized for making ethical decisions at school.  You need to get three in one area and you get the bracelet!  Camille's first Trustworthy bracelet.  YES!

Birthday Girl.

Ta da! The totes!

Not by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin.

I had a lot of fun as the stick building piggy in a Reader's Theater
at Camille's school!  Yay for Read-A-Thons!

It was cool having a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders tell you how awesome you were. 
It didn't matter that it was at being a pig!

Take my hand and form a chain, Down a magic daisy lane...

Camille just received her new apron at her Girl Scouts Ceremony and is officially a Daisy!

Camille is trying to guess how many M&Ms are in the jar. She won! (using Gabe's turn but the guess was hers and it still counts).   

Such joy in serving her guests. 
The scavengers on the hunt...
Kylan, Caden, Gracie, Gabe, Conner, and Camille. 
The very cranky (her eyes bugged from lack of sleep) girl who turned into a vampire. 

Our attempt with Anne's help.

Welcome to the Happy Hands Club!

Downtown Sedro Halloween Parade is Us. 
Now for the treats!

The search!

                                      Heading into the massive corn maze at Beringer Farms.

little Brett

                                           Brett leaping out of the corn to scare the kids!

Ride Away!

The search has begun.  Camille and Gabe's warty pumpkin faces.   

The One. 

Everyone else placed their finds between their feet. 

The One rode next to us. The newest member of the family.
