A few weeks ago we were able to get out into the mountains and do a little sledding. The boys loved the entire day and so did we...seeing how the boys were absolutely helpless in the snow and stayed right where we wanted! To prove how great our day was, Carson's gloves didn't come off ONE time. Yep...that good. Here are a few pictures taken.
He went all day in undies without an accident. Saawweet! Let's hope he doesn't change his mind.
"Hey Amy Jo, c'n I has chichen?" (chicken nuggets)
"Hi Amy Jo, watcha doin'?"
"Umm, Amy Jo, les go to du store."
It felt funny. But it was so super cute. They haven't done it since...just that one day. Weird.

Remember when Shane and I went to McCall to celebrate our Anniversary? I do! That was back in August. While we were there, we hit up a few garage sales...one of our favorite things to do. I found something I couldn't walk away from. Well actually, I did walk away from it and couldn't stop thinking about it. So I made Shane take me back in hopes that my treasure would still be there. I walked away with an awesome wood window pane, not quite sure what I would do with it.
It was a worn white and super dirty. I almost hung it "as-is" in our bedroom, but then I came up with a better idea. I've been needing a way to display our family pictures. There just aren't enough small picture frames to go around for all the pictures I'd like to display...especially current family pictures. So I decided to run with that idea. I cleaned up the window and replaced one piece of glass that was broken ($2). I decided on red. Sanded it, painted, sanded again, and then antiqued it with a mocha colored glaze. Then I put the pictures in. It's been done for months. Once the holidays were over and the holiday decor put away, I was ready to put it in it's place. It's new home is on the wall above our kitchen table. I'm so excited about it.
