We headed out for a walk to get the girlie a break from the cabin.
This was our cabin on the right, one of the last cabins in the ranch, nestled up in the trees. Very cozy. We loved it.
Someone was very excited for her walk.
Scott & Carrie picked the perfect weekend for a wedding. Check out the color of the trees! The snow added the perfect touch (but was mostly gone by the time the wedding happened!)
On our walk down to the Celebration Cabin we ran into some very dear friends who we do not see often enough coming out of their cabin for a photo op. It was one of the highlights of my weekend to see these friends - half of the Morris clan. I caught a picture of Auntie Jen & her nieces with their new Turkish scarves.
And she took one of Heidi and I. Then we watched the kids play and play and play in the snow. Heidi loved these kids - she would outright giggle at the sight of them!
An attempt at sledding while we waited for a few more adults to join us on our walk.
We continued on our walk and found fresh black bear prints in the snow!! I guess there was a good reason for our bear-proof trash cans!
And very fresh moose tracks just a little further on.
We had fun hanging out in our little cabin for the weekend - Heidi is getting really good at pulling herself up on things. And she played with empty water bottles all weekend!
I had to throw this one in there - my Dad unpacked the groceries so the instant oatmeal and nut packs ended up in the fridge. Go figure!
And late Sunday night we flew home to Eugene with my Mom. We had so. much. fun. Things went so fast - I wish I had the time to enjoy them more but we needed to get home for our family's next adventure....more on that soon!
Her perfect first bite!

I managed to have lunch with my buddy, Emma, this week (and her mother). It is pretty fun that she & Heidi are so close in age - someday soon they may actually notice each other in the nursery. I know I have a few readers out there who would love to catch a glimpse of her so I thought I'd share how cute she is!
Our friends, the Moody's, came down for dinner and bowling this weekend. The turn of weather has us looking for fun indoor activities. These three had a great time bowling - even though we were pushing bed time for all of them! And this time around I brought the real camera so I liked the pictures quite a bit more.
It isn't every day you see someone bowling in a tu-tu!
Cooper is too cute for words! I think my favorite thing about her is how she says 'Allison.' Gotta love having a 2 year old around :).
We love watching this little girl grow up. This next month will be a big one - we're headed out on our first airplane trip together on Friday - not sure how well we we'll weather that one! :)

This little girl is getting so independent. She started in her Pre-K class at school. Both Teacher Ashley (her preschool teacher) and I are having a hard time with it. Just wait until next year when she moves to a new school! Anyhow, with the Pre-K class comes some new responsibilities and independence both at school and at home. We converted a cabinet for her craft 'supplies.' I'm amazed at how well she gets out the things she wants to use and puts them back away when she's done. But don't worry, she isn't completely grown-up yet, we had a meltdown shortly after these pictures were taken. She ran out of tape and I told her we weren't going to get any more out. Glad to know she is still my 'little' girl :).
