Christmas Time

After spending the last 2 Christmas' outside of the US and one of those away from family,  this year was extra special.  Christmas 2012 was the first time myself and the boys were not with family, it was very hard to say the least.  For 2013 we were thankful that Michael was finished with his rotations in Michigan,Oma and Papa were able to head south from Canada, and Carith had completed her seasonal work for the year.  The boys have really come to see the importance of time with family and loved ones over massive piles of gifts which warms my heart.
The holidays have been filled with good food, good company and a warm and cozy home.

Thank you to all of our family for a wonderful Christmas

Fall Break

Time away
Somewhere warm and peaceful
Less people 
Dessert colors and hues
Cold nights, brisk mornings, and warm days
Clear blue skies
Full moon
Sleeping under the stars

Days with no schedule
Boys free to roam
Daily late afternoon cocktail hour for sunset viewing
A time to practice fire building skills
A coating of dessert dust on bedding, cloths, bikes, truck and bodies

Thank you Carith for sharing this fall break with us and the photo contributions.
