• Family Outing

    There are lots of great places to visit here in Idaho and the surrounding states.  We are blessed that lots of these sites are less than 5 hours away. One of my cousins and a 2nd cousin came in for a visit last week and we decided to visit one of these sites, Craters of the Moon.  Now it’s sad to say, we’ve been in Idaho for going on 12 years, and this is the first time we’ve ever visited Craters, but after this visit, we will definitely visit it again.  It was so much fun and so beautiful and I actually went caving for the first time ever.  It…

  • A Blessed Christmas ~ 2014

    We had such a great Christmas this year.  We were able to spend Christmas Eve with friends, enjoyed some yummy snacks and watching a movie together.  Then, after we got home, before we went to bed on Christmas Eve the snow started!  We woke up to a beautiful, white Christmas.

  • Vacation fun

    It was a great week last on for our fall vacation.  We had fun, but also had a lot of time at home to relax and enjoy each others company.  That’s what we usually like best about staycations.  🙂 On Monday we went to a corn maze, and had a blast.  It was beautiful weather, not too windy and lots of fun things to do there.  And the mazes were the best.  They had about 4 or 5 mazes, and we went in all of them, though I don’t think we made it through all of them.  It’s so hard to tell, but we got lost and turned around and…
