The annual cabin trip has come and gone. It was a quick one this year. There was the worldwide church traing that involved quite a few in our family, so we had to make it a quick trip. We missed Mitch, Sarah, and their family. Pip and Skip, aka, Ty and Ash, and we also missed Matt and Ash. We still had a good time. It isn't the same without all the family. Danny and I got up there first. We had to take a couple of pictures of cabins in Island Park for Danny's dad. We were on our way and Danny looked out and saw a bald eagle on the top of one of the pine trees that was flocked with snow. It was so pretty. On the way to another cabin Niamh said, look a wolf. There wasn't a wolf, but there was a fox. He just slowly made his way across the road. It was cool. It was the first time Danny had seen a fox out in the wild. We went to the cabin to get it all ready. It was SOOOOOOOO cold. We could see our breath. Thank goodness for heaters and furnaces. It took about 10 minutes to get a little comfortable. By the time everyone else came it was nice and toasty, some say maybe a little too toasty, which was true. We roasted hot dogs and had smores. We always bring our Christmas movies for the kids to watch. It is always so much fun. The kids always have something to color and they always play games with mamie. We got all bundled to go find the perfect tree. One time as dad was cutting a tree we thought we knew which way it was going to fall. We didn't quite know so we all quickly got out of the way while Niamh was calling out "timber." It was cute. The kids all put on a play. They picked someone to be Rudolph and all the others were the reindeer. Then they all got in a line while Parker played santa and they all ran off to go flying. They always have fun finding little hills to slide down. Mom and dad always get us our tree and we appreciate it. It is always a good time. We appreciate all they do to make the cabin so much fun and so full of memories.

So so cute!!! I definitely need to get some pictures from you-you have so many cute ones.

I love it and you! It was so much fun and I"m glad we could still go-even if it was short and sweet and there was no sticky chex mix. :)
