2016-2017 A Little Bit of Everything!

Our "plant it and forget it" garden for 2016 did pretty awesome!
 We love our gym.  It's definitely one of a kind!  We've met our most favorite people there.  I love that it's not just a "girl thing".  Stewart isn't the only guy in the classes, and we can workout together. 
 More Mount Borah pictures (I made friends with some stranger on our hike who had a really nice camera.  He took some pictures of us, then hashtagged them for me to find later) (so cool!)

 seriously- we rock-climbed down that sucker, and both sides were a drop off straight down to the bottom.  (Once in a lifetime climb for me) ;)
 Addison made another game.  She's so creative!
The kids made a fort in the living room. They pretty much used ALL the blankets we own.  When I looked inside they had lit it up with the battery operated candles we put in our jackolaterns, and Dax was inside with them!
 They even made their own fake marshmellows out of cotton balls, and taped it to the wooden dowel they found!  So Creative!

 Addison had her walkathon in the fall of 2016.  I went to "walk" with her.  She ended up sprinting the whole thing.  If I didn't have Dax strapped on me, I would have joined her ;)
 DATE NIGHT!  I sure love Stewart.  We're pretty good about getting away for a date night regularly.  I don't know when else we'd have time to talk and not be interrupted lol!
 Stewart is such a good daddy.  He doesn't often split the chores or parenting duties into "your job" and "my job".  He's a good parent and helps out wherever and whenever he sees an opportunity.  I hope my boys will learn from and grow up to be like him. 
 Took the kids to a Senator football game!  It was a State Playoff game IN Gooding, so we bundled everyone up and off we went. 
 Daxton's first game!
 Addison and Kinley being silly at lunch.  We often kidnap Kinley (actually she begs to come to my house after the gym) so I bring her.  She's so loved in our home.  Her and Cash were the same age, so it's nice to have her around to remind us of what shenanigans Cash would have been into.
Our family was able to attend a banquet honoring Organ Donors.  It was a special time to honor Cash, and remember his sweet little life and all the good he did in this world.

 We decided to tour around downtown Boise for a while after.  The kids thought this giant horse was pretty cool!
 Then we headed to a park where the kids chased Geese like crazy (I'm pretty sure that's frowned upon) but it made them laugh and giggle, and was good for all of our soul's.
 My friend Stefani started a little crocheting side business.  How cute are these shark slippers she made for my kids?!  Adorable!  (Even Dax was excited)

 Mr. Potato head at school.  Addison helped Brogan, and they decorated their potato's 100% on their own!
 Watching the home-coming parade!
 Gym-Rat Babies.  These two are such awesome babies.  seriously.  We work out for hours each day, and they just chill and love it!
 Kinley came to play and insisted on getting out ALL the play-dough.  LOVE HER!
 Addison got a new pony- Boomer!  He's a nice little pony (except that he's a nibbler).  He loves Addison, even though she's still a little nervous he's going to nibble her hair off.
 These kids LOVE playing with their brother!  They can't wait until he's big enough to chase them back :)
 Pumpkin Patch!  We love it!  It's one of our Favorite Fall things to do together.  Tubbs Berry farm in Twin is so awesome and only gets better and better each year.

 Our community came together and raised enough money to build a brand new park!  It was total volunteer work to put it all together.  Stewart and I got to put in the monkey bars (what a job) and then we spent time doing other odd jobs.  (Stewart helped put in the tire swing, I helped put together and install window shutters on the playhouse).  It was a neat experience, and we'll always have memories of building this park as we play there.  There were so many people who donated things in honor of cash.  He has several pickets with his name on them, and even a picnic table. 

My uncle Tony and Aunt Chris worked on the park THE ENTIRE WEEK.  They are so stinkin awesome!
 Just got my eyebrows touched up, and was feeling pretty fly!
 Halloween was awesome!
Dax was the bones in my witches brew.
 Addison was officer Hopps from Zootopia.
 Stewart went as Nacho Libre
 Brogan went as a Police Officer
 And I went as a witch with a cauldron full of stew.
 So fun to find all the Pickets with Cash's name on them.

 Brogan was too busy playing to take pictures.

 We love dressing up for Halloween!  This year was definitely fun!
 Addison lost her first tooth!  (And then the bottom one next to it).  She's on the road to being a goofy grinned girl!
 I love Stewart with all my heart.  while I was away he would often make me miss him by sending me longing snapchats.  ;)
