The sun was shining, the temperature was pretty mild, and the kids were having a blast. Eli and I just sat at the bottom of the hill watching.
You may (or may not) be surprised to know that Noah was the first to just throw himself down the hill without a sled. It worked quite well and soon all of the kids were doing it.
As the years pass by it seems that the times we are all together happen
less and less often, so we really do cherish the time we spend together.
Elijah woke up a little bit before midnight and was able to enjoy the festivities. This is quite possibly the cutest picture I have ever seen of my little baby boy!
These two boys are less than one month apart in age and I am so excited that they can grow up friends and cousins. Rick and I both had cousins our exact age and we were and are best friends with them. I feel so lucky that my kids have such fun cousins to grow up with.
We got a horse earlier last spring, and this fall Grandpa got the boys out to start working with her. They brushed her, got a saddle on, and even rode on her a little bit! Quite amazing for her first time. I grew up riding horses a lot and am exited that my boys can do the same.
