"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

A day with my boys

What a wonderful gift Gigi gave us when she played with the girls all day so we could take the boys skiing. We had so much fun (and only a handful of meltdowns!).
It was the perfect weather to ski. We had some snow last night and early this morning and then it was sunny!

Getting ready to head out for our first run. I adore having 4 kiddos, but one down side is that I don't often get to just hang out with 2 of them for a day. It was a blast having so much down time on the lifts to just talk with my boys!
Look how beautiful our trees looked this morning as we left! Isn't our God amazing?

Cooper took this on the top of the mountain. He was so cute because he took one pic then told me he needed to take another because I was looking the wrong way...that made Blake and I laugh (see pic) then he said, "Did it flash?" As if he should take a third. There is a small chance I take too many pictures ;o)
Look at that view! Both of the handsome dudes I was skiing with and the GORGEOUS sky and mountains!
A little snack on the lift.

How adorable is he in underarmor. My goodness I love this kid!

This is Cooper skiing!!! We are SO proud of him because he has really worked hard to get here. You might be able to hear the excitement in my voice...not sure though.

Owen is skiing like a natural. He says he is ready for poles. He loved this half pipe on the bunny slope and I am pretty sure we set some kind of record for # runs on the same slope.

I love it! I know you are missing a lot of people and extended family, but I so admire that you are soaking up every minute of time with your hubby and sweet kiddos. I also love that you and Blake are such great examples to those kiddos as to what a great Godly (and fun!) marriage is like. Such a gift. I miss seeing you every week!! You made me feel so incredibly welcome from the very first time I showed up at the waiting moms group! Meant more to me than you even know. Love you, friend!
