Annual Pingetzer Cabin Trip

We are so lucky we got to spend the weekend in up Lake Wenatchee with the Pingetzer Crew.  This is one great family and we had a lovely weekend complete with lots of sledding, a few snow ball fights, lots of yummy food, relaxing and great company.
There was so much snow! It was awesome!
There were plenty of sled races...
This was the best part! We made a sledding was 5 sleds deep and it was awesome!  We all hung on and made it down to the bottom!
We dug a tunnel for the kids.
Brian played lots of games of the ispy with my little eye with the kids.
And then there was a marshmallow fight! Which I think Payton and Dane ate as many marshmallows as they threw!
Friday night we went to Cashmere to Country Boys BBQ and then to the Wenatchee Wil Game and it was free blanket night!  Score!

Border Patrol & Babies

This weekend Lyndenn and I made a trek up to Canada to see Emily and the new baby Quin.  We started off the trip with pretty decent weather, roads, we had starbucks and even shopped at Lululemon!
  Things were fine until we hit the Canadian border where were were searched, interrogated, separated and questioned, they confiscated my phone, more questions, they even called Jonda, threats of being deported for a year, and more fun things.  All because I had my cameras, laptop, and a load of baby props.  It was seriously very humorous and I can't even describe the funniness of it all.  They were very concerned I was coming over to work an didn't get a work visa and was going to take work away from the Canadians!  I love my road trips with Lyndenn!  This is the first time we've been searched!  
Other then that we had a very nice relaxing few days.  It was perfect.  See Quin is even smiling in this picture of me holding her...she likes me!

My first trip to the ER

Thank goodness for Mom and Dad Faw who always are there when we need to go to the ER which neither Brian or I ever needed- until recently.  On Saturday Brian was out snowmobiling and I was home crafting...(who knew crafting was a dangerous hobby). 
While cutting some fabric with the rotary blade...I nearly severed the tip of my finger off, barely missed the hurt like heck, I screamed bloody burder, it bled alot and Mom and Dad Faw had to rush me to the ER...surprisingly I didn't shed a tear...kinda proud of my self.  I have to wear this bandage for 10 days and then get my stitches nail might be ugly and my finger might be sensitive but atleast it's still there.  Thanks Mom and Dad Faw for rescuing us, yet again.  
 Ashley came to be my comic relief....and clean me up...since the nurse was gonna leave me with dried blood all over the place.
I know this doesnt look too bad....but I sliced all the way through... I have an even nastier picture with it opened up...but thought I would spare those details...

Sunday afternoon after church Brian and I went to Leavenworth with Billy and April (they are a fun couple that goes to our church) to get a little snow shoeing and eat a a yummy restaurant called South.  It was delish! Sordof a tex mex baja blend of fresh ingredients and delicious meats!  Anyway, it's amazing how little snow we have gotten this year...even though we found enough to snowshoe it was surprising the lack of it.  It was a warm and sunny day and it was so nice to be out of doors!!!

Brian has been enjoying this winter's snowmobiling.  He has been out quite a few times with the guys.  I am just jealous he actually gets to go play in the snow since we  haven't had any at all at home!  He went out with Kacey last weekend and I finally got to see a picture!

Saying Goodbye to Grandma Faw

Grandma Faw joined Grandpa in Heaven Thursday December 29th and we are so thankful she gets to see him again!  We were fortunate enough to spend Christmas with Grandma and even celebrated her 84th Birthday a few weeks ago.  She died unexpectedly and we will miss her greatly but know she is singing up there with Grandpa!  Today is her service and all the family will gather once again in her honor.
I love these next two pictures of her...this was her graduation picture in 1940 and the next one is just a picture of her taken in California, I don't know the year.
