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.

A twelve-year-old young lady in this house!

My word.  Count those candles.
And look at that "I am going to eat ALL this steak and not share with anyone" face.

This girl is TWELVE!
And this girl is one I also find amazing for so many reasons!
She is beautiful!
She is FUN!
She loves trying new things, like skateboards!

And driving a stick shift.
And BOWL roping.  Which she thinks is hilarious because it sounds so much like BULL roping.
She is a GREAT friend who makes new friends and cherishes the old ones!


She works hard at every thing she does and it shows!
This bareback picture makes me laugh.  She FELL OFF during the competition and STILL took fourth place!  Out of SIX! 

She is the best big sister a bunch of siblings could ask for!

Even if you can tell which is which because they seem to be all mired in the muck!

She may have been the ring leader here.  Notice the dog is actually the only smart one in the bunch?
She helps the little ones.
And is intent on finishing what she started. 
Even if it takes all day and a change of scenery since I sent her outside to ride her horse.  Because if we have them, they are GOING to get ridden!

Well, that isn't exactly what I meant!  But I will take it I guess.

What?  You didn't mean sit on the horse and read for hours???  Oops.

Did I mention she likes to try new things??  Like getting her horse accustomed to a rope.  Bareback?  Crazy kid.

Happy Birthday to the awesome-est almost teenager I know!

Keep smiling, my beautiful girl.  Life is good!
