Two years ago April 29th my very good friend and sister in law past away suddenly. This was a very sad day but for us a happy one too because it is my oldest sons Birthday. We talked so many times during the week and shared parenting, laughs and tears. Ever since Marie had her first child Sean and I would fly her to visit us every summer. The day she died she left behind a husband and three young daughters ages 7, 6, 2 years old. Sean I have continued the tradition for the girls of bringing them to our home every summer. We miss last summer because we were preparing for China. They usually stay about a month with us. We have a blast but it makes for a very busy summer with no energy by the end of the day to even think about blogging. ha So we had quite the Brady Bunch family this summer; 4 boys and 4 girls. My little 1 year old nephew visited for a week too!! The day before everyone left we took some quick pictures and Im sharing two of them below. We look forward to it every summer. We had many other visitors this summer too; Bother and sister in law for a week, Mother in law for a week, Father in law and Step Mother in law for a week, my parents for a week, my brother for a week, and we took a family vacation to the mountain for a week when every one left! Whewwww! Then school started the beginning of August. Crazy!! So that gives you a little idea of why we were not in the blogging world this summer. :-)

Yes, you are seeing this right!! Old Man Winter has decided to come early this year. I guess he figured we never really had summer this year so we should just skip Fall and start with Winter!! It is a high of 33 degrees the snow is blowing sideways and we have about a 1/2 inch. It is suppose to drop to 20 degrees tonight with a few more inches. Our house does almost sit at 8,000 feet but come on SEPTEMBER????? I wonder if they have ever had a snow day for school in September before?? Nothing like a first time for everything!!
