16th Anniversary

Kevin was in charge of our anniversary this year. He decided we should go to the Frontier Homestead State Park with the kids. It has some great historical machinery, carriages, and buildings.
Later that day Kevin took me snow shoeing. We borrowed them from a friend and went right behind our house with the dogs. It was a beautiful day and there was barely enough snow. It was sentimental since we went snow shoeing on our honeymoon.
I am so grateful for the support and love Kevin gives me. We continue to grow up together and we are still striving for the same things. We love the gospel of Jesus Christ, our family and each other. 16 down and many more to go!

Christmas 2017

Christmas was at home this year because the weather was not good for driving. We planned to visit my parents for Christmas Eve but there were storm warnings that just kept getting worse. We decided to stay home and away from the possible harm. We traveled up after Christmas to do presents and went sledding and tried out my mom's drone! It all worked out well!

Starting December Off Right!

December was filled with many events this year. Samantha had her first drill team competition where they got 1st place in every category (we won't mention they were the only 1A school there).

 There was a band concert for both Derrick and Samantha.
Derrick got to go to the NFR with Kevin.

  KayDee performed her lyrical dance at her winter recital.
 Of course, I had another birthday!
 Derrick built a fantastic fort out of the amazing snow we got this year. Sadly, KayDee was sick for the elementary program this year and we totally forgot to go to the primary Christmas program. But we still feel like we had a great pre-Christmas, busy December.
