Beth is home from NC!

In January, Beth spent 3 weeks in Eure, NC with her cousins, Shari and Eric Earhart, helping after the arrival of their newest blessing, Miles, who was born December 22. Here is just a sample of the many pictures she took while she was there.

Beth, Mandi, and the quilt block Beth got to make, to be included in the quilt Shari is making for Mandi!

We are glad to have Beth back, but we know her helping hands are missed in NC!

Tubing with the Petersons

On January 27, our friend, Lexi Peterson, had a birthday. She invited Jason and Emily to go snow tubing with her and her dad for her birthday. They went to Beaver Meadows, a place we have gone many times through the years for cross country skiing and tubing. It was a beautiful day and they had a great time.
This is the tubing hill looking down from the top.

The double tube option!

Jason took a lot of the pictures, so he didn't get in very many.

Emily, looking sweet and happy!

The Rest of Rowen's birthday

We went over to Greeley to Rowen's sister, Esther's house for an special meal the day after Rowen's birthday. Mary, Rowen's older sister who was visiting, and Esther, made the delicious food. (The salad was All-American, as was the apple pie we had for dessert.)

Rowen wore his new birthday shirt, especially made for him and brought to him by Mary when she came. I wore the shawl that she brought for me this trip.

The cousins sang Happy Birthday to Rowen.

It was a wonderful evening with our extended Albertson family.
