For Thanksgiving we were able to go to the Krantz reunion in Elkton, OR. It took place on this beautiful 2500 acre ranch. The Krantz family is Lincoln's mom side of the family. She has 12 siblings and a few were able to make it with their families. Grandma Grace was so happy to see all of her offspring, especially a few of her great grand children.
Luca and Mariah. Mom, can I marry Mariah later?
Second cousins once removed and their great grandma Grace. I think they were watching UP.
What happened to these guys? :)
The cabins didn't have a bath tub. For now a sink will do. I think Ava had peed her pants. :(
One day we went to see part of Lincoln's dads family, who lives all over OR. We got to see grandma Mae, uncle Randy, aunt Carol and their wonderful kids.
Here's uncle Dylan (Lincoln's sister's husband) playing with the kids. They had such a great time with you, Dylan! Thanks for hanging out with them!!!
And here is beautiful Katie, Lincoln's cousin! She's so good with kids! You'll be a great teacher!
Going Christmas tree picking seems like a fun activity...
...It was only fun for the first 10 min though. Then everyone started getting cold and tired of walking through the snow. Finding THE right tree is a problem, if you have 4 little kids and both parents are perfectionists. The tree was only $5 with a Christmas tree permit from the local forest service.
I just have to show these pictures. Otherwise one might think we only have happy moments in our little family.
There, Ava is much happier in mama's arms. Lincoln ended up carrying Noa and the tree. Poor Leea had to walk back through the snow to the car. Next time it will probably help if I dress them in their snow gear. We didn't have any snow yet, so I wasn't expecting snow in the forest either. Well, the forest is in the mountains. Duh!
Ahhh, Christmas spirit in the house! We had all other things set up, but the tree is definitely the creme de la creme.
My friend was telling me how they pick their tree in the summer. We will do this next year!
Rebecca I'm not a woman of many words. Therefore I tell happenings in pictures. After all I've got my hands full! I enjoy the outdoors, spend time with my family and love to be involved in the kids' schooling, the community and church. I like to be creative and love healthy eating and lifestyle. A lot of my time goes into cooking and researching either.
