"Blue skies...nothing but blue skies can I see" 

Frosty trees--half buried!

Welcome home? March 2013

The footprints on the roof are Bob's--not Santa's

Cody opened the trail to the barn

Can you find the garden and swimming pool?

Skiing the Big Mountain March 7-11, 2013

From Miami to Montana--a bit of weather shock!

Yeah, Diane did ski--sort of

Chad, Tom, Larry, and Bob really enjoying their lunch

Mountain scenery

Kyle and his son Hudson (talking to Bob), and Larry and his son Nate,
came with Tom and Jett from Cedar Rapids; Chad met them in Minneapolis

Dad took this pic of me on the mountain--it doesn't look real,
 but it is! The Stube is in the background.

Buffalo, MN, Jan. 13-14, 2013

This IS Cecelia wearing Lydia's lilac!

Lydia was wearing Cecilia's traditional pink!
Guess Who?

I had a picture of Claire giving the piano lesson, but somehow lost it.
 If you haven't guessed "who" is--that's Claire at one year old.
She looks like one of her sisters--with fewer curls!
