Happy Birthday Dawn!

This is my sister-in-law
  See that smile, well it is permanent I am sure of it. She is always smiling, she loves my kids and she was the only one crazy enough to join us on an adventure across the state to Winifred Montana for a race, when hubby was laid up on the couch with a broken leg.



From Shane, Kaleigh, Lauryn, and I, we wish you a very
Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Wes!!

Almost 12 years ago when our girls were born there was a member of our family that was miles away living in Denver.  Wes not only came back so he could meet his nieces, but from that minute they have held a special place in his heart.  He started a postcard tradition with them, if he travels he sends them a postcard and they love it when we go somewhere and they get to send him one back. It is their thing and they have a sizable collection of postcards in their scrapbooks. It has been a couple years now that Uncle Wes moved back to Helena and two girls couldn't be happier. Wes, we wish you the happiest of birthdays, and are thankful we get to celebrate with you!! Thanks for everything you do and for being such a great influence in our girls' lives!!

Growing Up in the Dirt

These two cuties have been at the races since I was pregnant, they used to fall asleep in the middle of the race track in the backpack carrier. Just like them their love of dirt bikes just keeps growing.

Land of Stories

There is no secret I love books, and since our girls were infants we try really hard to read a book before bed.  Yes, they can read themselves but they both still like it when I read a book to them, and since they are older we can ready chapter books, 1 or 2 chapters a night. We have definitely read some great books, we have also started a couple of books and not finished because as a family we were BORED!! However the week before school got out we finished the book "The Land of Stories; The Wishing Spell" by Chris Colfer. You may recognize this name from Glee however as I have never watched the show I had no clue who he was.  His acting may be good but his story telling skills are phenomenal, you have to read this book.
