|Good morning Montana! It has been cold out walking the pups but sure is beautiful.|
|Love these Darlins. Crewe is getting so tall, he grew almost 3 inches since August. I love to take Dayne and Dane picture together.|
|Christmas Eve. After we read the Christmas scriptures, the pass around gifts and carols with Daynes sign language the kids got new pj's. Crewe was thrilled with the Ravenclaw pj pants and Fin shirt.|
|CHRISTMAS FAVORITES We were all so happy with all the gifts. I think Dayne's favorite gift were the American Girl dog and accessories and Crewe's was a new game system the PS4 but he loved the Ravenclaw robe.|
|We had lots of snow for Christmas, it was just like in the movies, and Danes new coat was toasty. Ash and Rich were happy, happy, happy and Fin was the most tired dog of all.|
|Merry Christmas from Don and Nita. Seconds later Grandpa knocked over Grandmas water glass. Sure glad I got the picture first, and Dane made a delicious prime rib for dinner.|
|Crewe and Dayne are turning into cow hands, at least while at the Big R.|
|I tricked Ash into walking outside with me even though it was really really cold. She has turned into a California girl and was pretty much frozen the entire 2 weeks she was here.|
|Next outside activity was sledding. It snowed then got really cold so by the time we got to sled the hill was really slick and fast.|
|Crewe and Dayne loved it ! I was the first to get cold.|
|Happy , Happy Birthday. Yep, I'm 64. I think I must be old now. I still feel young. I hope I get to live a long time. I look at this picture and I see how much Ashley and I look a like, but she is so pretty.|
|HAPPY NEW YEAR!|
We made root beer to ring in the New Year and wonderful German food. The dry ice and smoke was very fun and Dayne kept saying it was her witches brew. For New Years Eve we all went to the Alberts Bair for a concert "Rockapella." It was pretty good and the kids loved it. We were home by 9:30 and none of us could make it to midnight.
We had a wonderful holiday season and we really loved having Ashley, Rich and Crewe and Dayne for Christmas. We feel so blessed and grateful for our great life, health and of course the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have had a great year and hope that next year will be just as good.
