This past weekend, Daddy got left at home while Mommy and the kids headed to Grandma’s house. It was just a brief stop for Mommy because she and Grandpa went to Denver to look at sheep. So Grandma and the kids hung out, picked raspberries, played, napped at times and generally had fun Friday and …

Halloween 2011

After much deliberation, Allie decided to be a banana for her little brother monkey. We had a great night stopping by Dr. McKeith’s house and then hitting lots of houses between here and there. Allie got into the swing of things, even going up to a few houses by herself. Josh hung out in the …
