Grandma helping out in the kitchen! She is the original Thanksgiving hostess.
Today, Scott had the day off so we all piled into his truck and headed up to Rampart Range Rd. Last night we had a little snowfall, so the tree and ground were covered with a dusting. It was a beautiful morning to head into the mountains! We drove all the (very bumpy) way to Woodland Park with a couple stops to stretch our legs. Here are some pics of the kids playing on the rocks.
This is a picture of the steam coming off the road as we headed out of town. You can’t tell but the sun was peeking out and warming everything up. Paige’s hand print in the snow. That was the only picture that she wanted taken (as you can see from the above shot).
Sorry my kids look a bit disheveled. Bless their hearts..when they woke to snow they all threw on clothes and brushed teeth and headed downstairs ready to make a snowman. Not quite that much snow 🙂 I absolutely did not forget to brush their hair. Hey- it was our day off!
Tonight, I have been working on Mason’s care package. We had a lot of fun finding things to include. It all had to fit in a shoebox, so that we a fun challenge. We added a warm sweatsuit, camouflage socks (picked my Sam), a camera, hat, blocks, fruit snacks, a ball, two cars and a photo book that included our family pictures.
We have so much to be thankful for this season. Only God knows what life will bring and we are thrilled and excited to see all that He has planned for us! Please continue to keep Mason in your prayers as we wait to travel to bring him home.
Enjoy the weekend,
