Happy New Year's Eve!

I may have posted a similar picture before. I took this New Year's Day 2014 when Rick and I did a little snowshoeing in Glacier National Park. We're playing around with the idea of going up there again tomorrow. The park is just under an hour away from us, so we go up as often as we can. It's been cold, but tomorrow is supposed to warm up to a whopping 21 degrees. Yay!

I apologize for being so rotten with blogging. I've had some trolling issues, and it just took the fun out of it for awhile. It is something I enjoy, so I hope to get back into it. I really miss visiting everyone else's blogs as well. It seems Instagram is where I am the most, so if you want to follow me, that would be awesome. You all know me and my photo addiction!

Looking back on 2014, I realized we've done quite a few things, including two trips to California to visit my in-laws. These past few weeks have been great because Nicole has been home from college. It's rare to have the whole family together, so I've really enjoyed that. I am hoping to get a picture of all four kids together tonight sometime. I hope everyone stays safe tonight and that 2015 brings much love and happiness.

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!

I'm sorry to be posting a day late. I didn't get my laptop on all day yesterday. Our holiday was very nice, especially having all the kids home at the same time. Nicole's been away at college for so long, so it was great having everyone here. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas as well.

Montana Grizzly Encounter

We stopped at the Montana Grizzly Encounter on our way to pick up Nicole from college for Christmas vacation. One benefit was that our entry ticket was good for two days. Since we were driving back the next day, we stopped again with Nicole. Here are some photos I took on both days, including of little Bella who is the youngster of the group. I was so happy she was out the first day we stopped by. She's the last three photos. She's growing her first winter coat, so she looks a little rough right now. She's adorable. The other two bears are Jake and Maggi. I've seen them before as well, but now with Bella, I've seen all five bears that are currently living at the MGE. If you are ever in the Bozeman area, I recommend stopping here.
