Not the most exciting video - just Annie & Jake on a sled ride.

Thanksgiving - Family & Snow

Grandpa & Aunt Annie trekked through snow, wind and cold to spend the holiday with us. We are so glad, thanks! It was a quite traditional holiday, with lots of food, drink and family time. We also got some shopping done and lots of board games were played. Annie and Brian skied for a half-day, as the early snow opened the slopes. The kids sledded, built a snow fort and generally enjoyed the snow. We all got a real kick out of having a house full of family!

A hike behind our house

Last weekend, we went for a hike behind our house. We recognize how nice it is to be surrounded by wilderness area & open space! Though the endless amounts of deer, and sometimes bear, poop in the yard get old. I took down many of the apples from our apple tree and put them in our garden, thinking it'd make nice compost. Well, overnight the dozens of wormy apples disappeared. Even Brian didn't believe me when I told him they were ALL gone. Anyway, just walk to the end of Sunflower Drive, and this trail takes you up Mount Jumbo with views of our home and Missoula.
