Christmas 2011

The boys dressed up like Thing One and Thing Two again from the Cat in the Hat.

The boys dressed up as the same characters 2 years ago when they will still babies! I was the Cat in the Hat that year.

This year I couldn't resist having Thing Three on my belly! Baby boy #3 needed to be included too!

Our friend Nancy from church was the Cat in the Hat this year (I borrowed this same costume from her 2 years ago).

Michigan Trip

We went back to Michigan for our annual trip. It was a great visit with Matt's side of the family.

Mountain Trip Pictures

This was the first time our little family of 4 had my family's cabin in the mountains all to ourselves. It was a wonderful trip. We went on tons of walks/hikes and enjoyed a lot of good family time back in the cabin. The weather was very nice. The only bad part was that there was a big fire in the area and so everywhere we went, it smelled like smoke!

In the picture below, Brady and Jarin decided that they were going to fight dangerous animals with their sticks. They were supposed to make mean, fighting faces but Jarin's turned into a smile before I took the picture!

Daddy took us all on a lovely canoe ride on the lake. What a fun memory!

More Mountain Pics

On our 2nd day there, we drove around in the Sequoia National Park to check out all the cool landmarks and try to find the base of the forest fire. We did end up finding it, it was mostly out by the time we came across it and all the fire fighters. It had started from a lightening storm! Here are the boys at the base of a waterfall.

A family photo in front of a different, much larger waterfall.

Even More Mountain Pics

A family picture on the back porch of the cabin before our hike on the last day. The boys are great hikers and can go for long distances!

On our way home we stopped to see the General Grant tree which is now the 2nd largest tree in the world.

Ahhh, brotherly love at last.
