There are going to be a lot of random pictures, so prepare yourselves! But here's a little glimpse into our lives since last June...
My Aunt Carrie and Uncle Jeff and their kids, Charlotte and Logan from Jacksonville, FL came and visited us in September and we had such a good time with them even though it was only for a week!
Dad and his mini-me, Levi. :)
Oh, by the way, Bennett has been sleeping outside on our porch in his tent since June....yep, even right now in January when we have had -20 weather! No thanks, not me. I'm good with sleeping inside with my electric blanket and a fireplace...
This fall was one of the most beautiful falls I've seen since living in Montana, I think.
Levi likes to go beg for food when Bennett eats. Maybe it's because Bennett puts weird and extreme sauces on his food...he puts sauces on everything. Just to gross you out, he puts Tabasco sauce on his cookies. Ew.
Fiona's 7th birthday...
First frost of winter.
Dad celebrated his 48th birthday on November 20th! I made him banana pudding squares and the numbers on the cake practically drowned in the whipped cream on top.
Processing the deer meat in our kitchen.
Bennett cooked up some of the steak for his dinner.
Dan and Dad took Bennett, Preston and I shooting in November in Yankee Jim Canyon.
First snow of the year.
You can't build a snowman without wearing your "Let It Go" hat, of course.
Bennett and I got free elk, deer, and bird licenses from our hunters safety class we took in February. Dad took us out a few times, but we didn't end up getting anything.
Christmas tree hunting at Eagle Creek in Jardine.
Levi turned 1 on December 10th!
An elk posing by Dad's pizza oven.
Opening presents on Christmas morning...
Levi's first stocking experience. :)
Most of Bennett's Christmas presents involved food...spam? Ew again.
We went ice skating and had a hockey game on Cutler Lake with the Burke's and Bierle's the day after Christmas.
