Our first attempt to get to the cabin.

A few weekends ago Natalie, Benson and me decided to try to get to the cabin in our Tahoe. There was no snow until we got right up the road that goes to the cabin. We made it through a few snow drifts, then we got stuck. After digging for a long while and not even seeing us move the tiniest bit, a family with a Ranger (those ATV's with steering wheels, see pic) came and pulled us out. I'm sure I was just about to get us out, as you can see by my progress (or no progress) from the video.

planting

I want to start this post by saying that I have the most amazing mom in the world. On Monday she came and helped me get my flower beds all ready to plant, then she took me and my grandma to the greenhouse to get flowers, then she helped my grandma with her flowers for a bit and then came back to my house to help me plant all of my millions of flowers, then she went with my sister and helped her do a sewing project, and after a day full of helping all of us, she went home and mowed her acre of grass... what an amazing lady. If I could ever do half of what my mother does, I would be happy!

So here are some pictures of what's been going on around here...


The "Before" picture... (actually, this isn't truly before, because there were LOTS of weeds in there before we started.)

Danny says that sometimes you sew and sometimes you reap. We are sewing.


The after picture.


I just thought this was a funny picture of Benson. He's been pulling a lot of funny faces lately.



These are for Emily... Benson sure reminds me of Zack when he's wearing his clothes. This outfit really isn't as big as this picture makes it look.
