After four kids, ten moves and nearly two decades, we are still blissfully in love (most of the time) and I found myself back in the state I was born and raised in. It has definitely been a journey. In fact, on our 18th anniversary we pulled the last of our stuff up over the pass and into Montana, leaving our surprise love, Idaho, behind. But Montana is a great place. The last best place according to some. And we fully intend to explore as much of it as we can! Join us on our continued adventure through life, love and other stuff that comes with it.

Happy Halloween!

This year I tried something a little different. The kids bought their costumes with their OWN money. I think that's going to be something we just do here. Makes sense to me.

The Butterfly Princess:

We pinned her wings on and they looked really pretty great.

The Gypsy:

She wanted this costume last year, but they were all sold out.  And she was just as excited about it this year.

The Love Bug:

The antennas hurt her head, but she's really pretty darn cute without them.  Plus, then daddy and Carsten got to wear them.

The Puppy Dog:

His tail wags when he walks.  Makes me giggle.  And Grace made sure he had a proper tag--a piece of paper that has his name on it pinned to his collar.

And I'm hoping for this same miracle at Christmas time:

Honestly, I think this whole they-are-in-charge-of-their-own-costumes thing is the most brilliant idea I've had in a while.
