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 Birthday Violet!

Little Blondie Pants turned SIX yesterday.  She was SO excited.

I don't know if she was more excited about turning six or about getting a Snackeez.  She has been asking for one for MONTHS, actually.  Ever since she saw the commercial.  When she was opening her very last present, she declared that "I hope it is a Snackeez!"

Good thing her mother pays attention to these things.  Her birthday may have been ruined had it been something else. 

Her daddy even surprised her and made it home for dinner (He is working out of town.).  She had been asking him if he would FaceTime during dinner so he could share her birthday dinner with us.   (She chose ham and rice and peas.)  He told her he would do his best.  Then he just strolled around the corner with a dozen roses behind his back.  She saw him first and launched at him exclaiming, "DADDY!"  It was precious and I may have just sat there on the verge of tears.

There is a lot going on in our lives right now, but a little blond girl's birthday is really important.  And as far as I can tell, with a horseback ride in the morning and her daddy showing up for her dinner and her uncle and aunt and cousin and grandma and grandpa and mom and siblings helping her celebrate by eating homemade ice cream, she is one special little girl. 

She is also a beautiful little girl.  Inside and out.  We love our little Violet.  And we look forward to watching her grow into the beautiful young lady we see budding behind those blue eyes.
