Final months of 2011

Busy, busy, busy can pretty much sum up these last few months of
out lives, as I'm sure some of you can relate. Jeremey is still trucking away for the county weed control and is enjoying more responsibility as he is climbing the work ladder. He got his elk in October and filled our freezer, woo-hoo, and now has the itch for whitetail with his bow. When he is not providing for our family, Jeremey loves spending time with his two little rascals and giving mommy me-time.
Ashley tried out for Salmon Idol this year along with big sister, Jenny, and placed third out of all the contestants which was a fun experience and her hard work finally paid off when her school kids performed "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" in the beginning of December. Ashley is now finally enjoying baking holiday goodies again, spending evenings with the men in her life, and of course, rearranging/cleaning her house after turning her downstairs into a drama shed. She will be back at the drama grind at the end of January and is excited for her upcoming adventures with the ones she loves.
Besides being a ball of energy and Mr. Independent, Rowan is loving childhood (well, hopefully, anyway). His first day of pre-school was on his 3rd birthday which he has been just a thriving at and he seems to give the bus driver a hoot with every short bus ride, or so we've witnessed. Rowan went as our little stinker, a skunk for halloween, and is excited to see what Santa brings!

Little Kael is growing like a weed, can sit up all by himself and is very close to crawling and cutting his first tooth. Like Rowan, he is a special spirit, smiley to all he meets, and is not Mommy's but Daddy's little boy! (Jer wanted me to be sure to mention this, neener, neener!) We hope all of you are staying warm or cold or whatever suits you for the remainder of this year. We love you and hope you keep in touch.
