Christmas at the Cabin. Put up the Christmas tree and decorating.

Our Christmas tree this year was big and beautiful! The decorations are just a bunch of left overs. My kids keep telling me to buy more. But why? It's a cabin. I love having a fresh tree and because its so cold at the cabin while we are not there it keeps for ever and smells wonderful. I love Christmas at the cabin.

Rylie has a Cheer sleepover

A few days before Christmas Rylie had a Cheer sleepover. She was very excited because we don't do sleepovers. Why I let this happen I don't know. They didn't go to sleep until 6:00 AM. That's one good reason we don't do sleep overs. 

How we get our Christmas tree to our cabin

We get a fresh cut tree from Lowe's a few days before Christmas. We get it at the discount price of $20.00

We put it on the back of our snow cat and drive it up. This is when Santa delivers his gifts to our cabin also. So he must have ever gift bought and wrapped to take it up a few days before Christmas. Now Santa can enjoy the rest of the Christmas season.

Happy 28th Anniversary!!

28 years ago and it was so cold and snow on the ground 
I am so thankful I married this sweet man. He is respectful, kind, loving and so supportive of me and our family. I am so much more in love with him then I was 28 years ago. He makes me happy everyday!!

Look at the great blessing it has been. Four beautiful children. Two wonderful in-laws. One BEAUTIFUL grand baby. Being married to Scott is wonderful. He is a wonderful priesthood holder, good husband and great father. We are so blessed to have him in our life. Love you Scott FOREVER!!!
