The Winter War





Liam wrote this report for school on the Winter War. He had to come up with a non-fiction storyline, find pictures online and then write a first draft and final draft. His facts may not all be quite right, but he did it all by himself! So proud!

Weekends At Camp


My sasster and I spent a spectacular birthday weekend at camp last week, and Aaron and I just returned from a few quiet days exploring the U.P. with camp as our home base! 


Dad bringing in his tip-ups! He is adorable!


Beautiful, snowy mornings from our little cabin in the woods!

A Selfless Christmas


This Christmas, the boys agreed to ask Santa for a few less gifts so he might bring more to kids in need. They pored over the World Vision catalog for weeks until they settled on: 2 insect shield blankets, 2 chickens, 1 rabbit and a medicine kit. Liam took Max's suggestions for items to get and then weighed the value for money of each item! Seeing the thought they put into this really was the best part of my Christmas.


Santa brought them cards from World Vision describing each gift they gave and how they helped make a difference.


Santa got them a special gift for being so caring this Christmas..."Little House on the Prairie" on DVD! It was so cute because they did not expect anything in return for their gifts, but they were thrilled! Love these sweet kids.
