Shawn bought me a new camera for Christmas this year. I love taking photos of the kids and I'm enjoying my new camera. Usually I wait to take our newest family pictures when we get to my in-law's house, so I can use my mother-in-law's nice camera. This year we still waited until we arrived at my in-law's house, but I got to take pictures with my own camera. These are my favorite ones! Hopefully with more practice I'll get better.
Nana did a great job taking some family photos for us!
I love these four kiddos!
Kaylee - 9
Kassidy - 7
Kolsen - 12
Karolyn - 10

Shawn turned 39 and celebrated by using his hunting, birthday gifts and got seven ducks this week while on vacation.
Kassidy turned 7 and celebrated with all the "K" cousins at Nana's house.

I finally downloaded a bunch of pictures off of our camera and realized that I never posted these pictures from the cross country season. The first two are from the Milaca Mega Meet. It was HUGE! I couldn't believe how many athletes were there! Kolsen had a great time and finished 2nd for his team.
The buses at Milaca went on for a mile on both sides of the highway.
All that black in the middle of the road...those are people walking to the meet. It was crazy!
Nana Kristi and Papa Tom made it up to watch the kids run!
Kolsen's race at the start. His team is towards the right side of the picture.
I'm already looking forward to next year!

This girl LOVES to sew. Anytime I have my sewing machine on, this girl is glued to my side. She recently decided she wanted a notebook just like her sister had. She picked out the fabric, I helped her with the cutting and reading the instructions and she did all the sewing. It turned out great and gave me a chance to spend some quality time with one of my favorite girls in the world!

Karolyn ran as a part of the 4th-6th grade runners during two different meets this year. She loved it this year and especially loved having her special friend with her.
Future otter runners!

All smiles at the end. She placed 21st out of 80 runners.

We all managed to make it up the hill!
The kids loved finding the geocache.
