Nothing like a little catch up from the last six months huh? Don't worry, it's mostly cute pictures.
The biggest event of July was that we got to spend ten days in Glacier National Park with our dear friends the Barretts. Kevin used to actually be one of Trev's college professors, but now we are just like family. We also invited Trevor's folks to join us, and they did.
The Barretts are hikers. Intense hikers. They showed us a wonderful time in Glacier...by guiding us on 57.6 miles of trails. Yep - you read that right. We hiked 57.6 miles in a week. Awesome.
|Every day that we hiked over ten miles we rewarded ourselves with pie and ice cream from a local place - Ivie loved it|

September was a blur, but it also marked Ivie's first big screen experience as we took her to see Brave at the cheap theater. It was a hit. She loved having her own chair, popcorn and soda. This is her excited face.
Oh October. This was a month of mixed emotions. My cousin Nick was killed early in the month while working as a border patrol agent in Arizona. It has been a difficult and sad thing for all of my family.
October also brought hunting season and our annual Halloween party. Highlights in a hard month.

We celebrated Thanksgiving this year in California at Disneyland with my mom's family. Ivie loves Pluto and thought her life was pretty much complete when she got to see him not once, but twice!

How is it December already? We are gearing up for Christmas. But our highlight so far was Ivie's dance recital. She had a previous recital in November where she came out on stage and FROZE. This past Saturday she got to try again and did so good! It's crazy how fast she is growing, and how quickly time flies.
And there you have it - the last six months...sorta....of course there was more--good, bad and ugly--all we can really say is that we are loving life and looking forward to the rest of forever.
