Laundry Aid

Since I have sooo much help today, I expect to feel accomplished at the end of the day! Haha...not. I have Huxley again today. Watching me do a little laundry this morning, Huxley learned the yes, clothes go IN the clothes basket. So...he took my new clothes out of their bags and put them into the clothes basket, and drug it to the laundry room. Too bad he's not mine all the time...he could be very useful :D

Last weekend we took off for Kalispell and had so much fun with all the family! Josh and Ellen came from CA and Hugh and Carmen down from Great Falls. Saturday was THE PERFECT day for a sledding party too! It snowed all day and made Montana winter look beautiful!

Monday Josh, Ellen, Quiana & Trapper passed thru Missoula, so we took the opertunity to take some family portraits!

We hope that everyone is enduring the below zero weather! The Braaten house here in Missoula is so cozy and full of happiness and love! And wish everyone the same!

And the little swimmin jailbird

We flew in to the cities Thrusday morning (the 3rd) and checked into our hotel... The Hilton (thank you Cenex!). Logan had to spend the next few days at a buying show a few blocks away, so Katie Pedersen and I took the oppertunity to have some much needed, long awaited girl time! So we shopped around freezing downtown, and swam while catting about the past few years that we haven't spent together!

Friday afternoon, Kelvin arrived, and thed 3 of us, plus a co-worker of Logans went to the MN Wolverines Bball game. Even though we thought they played similar to high school teams, we DID however, enjoy joining Minnesotans howling. As soon as the game was getting over, we rushed through the SkyWays to get back to meet Mom, Dad, Linsday & Cole, Sarah, Ted and his friend Katie. SOOOOO good to see everyone again! We spent Saturday spending time together (except poor Logan, out buying Penzoil) and playing games. Ever play Battle of the Sexes? Excellant cant tell how much you actually know until you play! :)

It was fun seeing Cole have his second day of "solid foods"!! He did fairly well, even with the 2 team effort to get the job done!!
Once I get more pictures from Dad and Lindsay, I'll have to post more family pictures.
Hope everyone has had a good start to the new year!
