Once Winter hit, it really hit! I'm pretty sure the first day of Winter it was about 1 degree outside. Luckily the temperature has gotten closer to the mid 20's, so we try to spend a little bit of time outside everyday. Although most days that just means taking a short walk to check the mail.

Putting the snow back on the clean sidewalk

We had the opportunity to spend a Saturday sledding, so much fun! Especially since the snow was coming down so beautifully while we were sledding.

 (Oops, my phone fell in the snow for the last couple pictures)

We were getting bored during the day staying inside, so we went outside to play in the snow. I ended up with the idea to make a little snow cave/hole. Jonas got cold by the time I was done with it (we left the snow clothes in the car after sledding) so we had to go back the next day to enjoy it.

We were lucky to have Aunt Paige visit us last week, Jonas had so much fun building a snow man, cleaning the drive-way, and sledding with her. He also loved showing her all his toys, and taking her phone to watch videos, haha.

We have really enjoyed the snow this year! Although, after about two months of it I am ready for winter to be over. Or at least the snow and freezing weather part of winter. I'm scared the snow is never going to melt!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 

We can't believe 2016 is already here. 2015 was a pretty great year because we...

+ became first-time homeowners to our beautiful home 
+ Jonas went from six months to eighteen months, and during that time he learned to crawl, walk, climb, talk, and so much more
+We learned more about the Scouting program as JT became the Assistant Varsity Scout leader, over the 14-15 year olds, and I became the Wolves cubscout leader, which turned into the Bears leader at the new year
+my brother Jordan came home from serving an LDS mission, which gave Jonas and I the opportunity to spend three weeks with family in Washington

We celebrated the New Year with Gruyere and Swiss cheese fondue, and milk chocolate fondue, our third time for NYE, with Brittany and Jason. 

Jonas finished off the year with his 18-month well-check impressing the doctor with his development! Then a few hours later caught something from a kid in the waiting room, most likely croup, so we had to go to an urgent care on NYE to get the steroid medicine. Luckily it works fast so he's doing much better!

Happy New Year from little sicky! 

We hope everyone had a good, safe New Years Eve. With 2016 starting we are excited to work on our family and personal goals, especially since we accomplished last years goals (become homeowners)!
