My big boy turns 6 - could this be possible?

The theme is obvious: dinosaurs.  This is my first real attempt at "creative B-day mama."  I thought it went pretty well.  Don't look too closely :)  
PS- March 1st in Idaho = sledding party.  It's just the way it is.

Amelie - she's a beautiful mess!

This purple beauty is the handiwork of Aunt Katrina.  The bright color suits Amelie perfectly. 
She and I both love it!

This is a new favorite. Can't you see why?

Oma Barbara - the boys love their Legos!

 This is the perfect post-Christmas excitement, post-nap expression.  She played hard, ate heavy and slept like only a tired-out kiddo can.  Time for some Looney Tunes watchin' in Daddy's lap.

Christmas Costumes were a bit hit. Thanks Aunt Jen and Uncle Brett!

My PB&J Boy

It's hard to have so much emotion in such a little body!

These were taken literally within 2 minutes of each other.

Harvest Party!

So our harvest had some mutant elements, but we loved our garden and the kiddos loved picking and digging up our spoils, as you can tell!

Montana with Jen and Brett

The kiddos were great while we hung out with Aunt Jen and Uncle Brett in Montana.  
We did have a few Olps moments during the trip though. We were extremely slow hikers since Amelie had to be carried and Peter refused to look down at his feet or the trail during the entire climb.  It also began hailing while we were on the trail.  Back at the homestead Peter, in true Pe-Po form, fell off a wagon wheel into a rock garden.  The results were pretty nasty, but as you can see it didn't dampen his spirits for long!  Little kids add an element of adventure to everything :)

A Summer Sunday in Idaho

It's January right now and I just ran across this picture.  I am enjoying the snow outside, but ahhhh, Idaho summers are the BEST!
