We have not fallen off the face of the earth

I have not blogged now for a very long time. But we have not fallen off the face of the earth. April and May I have no excuse for, but since then I must say that having warm weather changes everything in Minot. We become very busy. Grandma and Grandpa (bless their souls!) just left this morning . They were here visiting and helping tremendously with the many projects we need to get done this short summer! They are amazing and we loved having them here!!!! Since I last wrote Grace turned 1, Abel turned 6 and we have been siding, tearing out doors and windows, tearing out decks, gardening, playing t-ball, visiting farms for fresh milk, and enjoying time outside. I will include a few pictures of such things and will try to do better at updating this in the future! Grace's 1st birthday

I love catching up on you and yours... I'm not a blog follower but I'm getting better. So thanks for the update. You have a beautiful family. Dallin just from the pics looks so much like his daddy that it makes me smile! Have a great summer! I miss you and wish you all the best!

Wow sounds like you've been really busy. I know what you mean about the warm weather up north. As soon as Malmstrom got warm weather you started seeing people outside you hadn't seen in months due to the cold. Glad to hear all is well.

I cant wait to see the house when it gets done. Every one is getting big. I really like the new family pic on the top.
