Christmas 2014- Part 2

Christmas is always a busy season for us. Madison celebrated her 7th birthday. I cannot believe how big she is getting. She is such a sweet little girl. She requested waffles in bed and grandpa came into town on her birthday as well so he took her to lunch.

Later that week she performed as an angel at the churches Christmas performance. She was the most beautiful angel <3 br="">
Christmas eve they opened up their pajamas and wore them to bed and Christmas morning they got spoiled with gifts, good food, spending time with their grandfather and playing lots of games :)

Playing games without light

One night while sitting at home the power went out. Of course me being unprepared had no candles, flashlights or anything. Thankfully it only stayed off for only an hour maybe close to an hour and a half but while it was out we found dad's headlamp and the kids played a game of Chess. It was kind of neat playing with light in the dark while my kids played a game of chess. It was a way for the kids to bond and for me to experiment with my camera and off camera lighting. :) Who says you need electricity to have fun :P LOL

Fall with the Ropers! Raking up leaves and jumping into fun

I miss fall so very much!! It's definitely one of my most favorite time of years. The girls and I decided one evening to rake up all the leaves in the front yard just to jump and play in them. Madison raked them up and pretty much Katie just jumped in them the whole time.

Madison would get mad because Katie wouldn't wait for her to finish raking them before destroying them so their was some sisterly arguments LOL! But so much fun anyways.

Madison was burying Katie in the leaves!! 

Jumping into the leaves together

The girls decided to throw leaves at me 

Appaloosa Museum Field Trip with Ryan's 4th Grade Class

Today I got to spend the afternoon with my son Ryan at the Appaloosa Museum in Moscow Idaho. It was with his 4th grade class at Moscow Charter and we learned about the Appaloosa Horses and the Nez Perce Tribe. It was a lot of fun seeing the kids learn about our history!
