Flathead and beyond..

Everytime we go up to the farm, I come back with warm fuzzies...and lots of pictures :)

This Reid. I tell ya! His "Sapling" shirt is from one of my favorite companies, Alpine Baby Co. It wasn't until a few weeks ago that I found out they're in Whitefish!!! So a super local company that I love love love! And bugs moccasins are from Starry Knight, which is about 15 miles to the south of us. Montana sure makes good stuff!! :)

Like the new family portrait? Hmm, that must be what we have to do when we book a slot with a professional...b.y.o.p...bring your own pig? Everyone's smiling!

This is taking ones love for bacon to a whole new level! Oink!

We all got to help daddy with chores on Sarurday morning. It's in these guys blood...I'm tellin ya! They have never wanted to help so bad in their life before :)

Even Reid! I set him up so that I could shut the gate...but as you can see, a gate can keep the cows in, but can't keep a little country boy out!

On Sunday we went to Ade and Anna's to celebrate Gramna Mary's birthday! I don't have pictures to show for it, but it was so nice to celebrate a lady who holds a big chunk of our hearts! Happy 50mmrph birthday Mary! <3

Friday night we went to the soccer banquet to celebrate how proud of the boys we were!! A taco feed, 200+ soccer players and their families, and giddy kids made for a noisy evening! They got little dog tags with their name, team and year engraved on them. We already can hardly wait for next season!

We will surely miss this spot during the winter. When we got too frustrated and tense to let a good day happen, we head down to the river. We left the books at home and made math with nature. However, the wind always blows harder there then in our yard, so we are usually in for a chilly surprise when we get down there. Ahhh, bitterroot river, you've pleased us greatly!

It was Beths (and Olga's, who we phoned for birthday singing!) birthday last week, and it happened to be our science museum day...and ALSO just happened to be across from The Market on Front, recently dubbed as the 'best latte ever' place. So here we celebrated a fantastic friend whom we love and appreciate greatly. (The little girl, baby J we call her, is the granddaughter of our neighbors who we meet with on Wed nights. Beth cares for her most days of the week)

It's getting colder now, in fact there's snow here now. But for the Wisconsin readers, I'm sure ours doesn't even compare! I missed my chiro appt this morning bc the van doors were all frozen shut and nearly missed it again this afternoon too bc they were STILL frozen! So, not wanting to reschedule for a 3rd slot, I dumped hot water over the track and it did the trick. Barely. 

This boy, he is a beautiful boy! Ok, so he's pretty handsome too, but his heart is so beautiful and large. He's got a lot of crazy energy to burn off before he gets there, but he is tender, kind and so helpful with his little brothers. He also turns FIVE in 9 days!!

Mmk, we are now a flatbed fam at Costco. And this isn't our usual loot either, we usually have more. However, even though it's a chore to go and tiring; I am so so thankful for a daddy who provides and we can get a flatbed cart full of fruits and veggies for our boys. And a cartful of Kalispell Creamery milk from Rosaurs every week. Hey, does anyone have an extra fridge they're not using? We could really use another... 

I got this sweet SWEET picture in my inbox one morning. Baby Lucas is now 4 months, and those cheeks are driving me crazy, as I want to kiss them! I'm soaking the picture in, because by the time we get to meet him in person, he may have already lost those sweet chunky cheeks!

We made a Fall Treasure board. I kinda really like it :) We learnt during this project, that the hot glue gun is indeed hot. 

Well, baby is done nursing and has entered the land of nod and I really have no reason to let my husband keep doing the dishes by himself out there anymore. 
Just kidding, I'm nice and warm, maybe I'll tell him the dishes can wait..there's a sleeping baby here who will be a bit bigger in the morning. 

Keep warm, all!!
