Tree Chopping

This spring, we had a random little tree start growing in the corner of our yard. As it grew, we realized it was a cottonwood. The kids are super allergic to cottonwood. So, we let them chop down the tree and take it apart. They had a lot of fun with that. 

The maple tree in our front yard that the builders put in has always been scraggly and terrible. Its leaves turned brown this summer for no reason and it looks dead. We dug it up today and planted it in that spot in the backyard. I guess we'll see if it comes back next spring if it's in a new location or if it was just an unhealthy tree. 

Now, Jeremy and I need to go find another tree to plant in the front yard.

Snow Mountains

Just needed to throw up a picture of the kids running across the snow mountains in the church parking lot. 

Cascade Mountains

Jeremy and I went to Seattle last week and I took some pretty pictures of the drive. 

We went the Snoqualmie Falls way and made a quick stop by the falls. It was 45 degrees so I thought it would feel warm compared to the 10 degrees it was at home. Yet it somehow still felt really cold? 


Elizabeth has been begging me for bangs for a while. They will take a bit more maintenance, but hopefully her hair is straight enough they will lie flat and not be too much to work with. Here she is with her new bangs.
