Christmas card poem 2012

We started the year with the birth of our son
Watching him grow has been so much fun

He is silly like his mom but stubborn like dad 
His little bit of sass and his two dimples Make us glad

We had a little scare there for a bit
Courtney had complications that just didn't quit 
But it brought us closer and stronger than ever 
And we are so relieved to have our family sealed together

Mason is our little peanut and still pretty small
Travis coached second grade girls basketball.

We enjoy working at the ranch getting things done
The dogs love to have room to run and run and run

Preparing for our life on our future farm
Travis now owns a truck and a new fire arm

This summer we lost travis' grandpa oriville, way too early
He was so loved and will be missed dearly

We also participated in the Kulm family reunion
Courtney is better thanks to her iron infusion

Courtney changed jobs and loves Teaching headstart in Pullman Now
She still crafts and sews as much as time will allow

Travis finished his last semester of classes but he won't walk
Now onto his internship with Spokane shock

This next year we will finish up school and move onto new things
For five years of marriage that's all we've known we will see what it brings

We appreciate the love and prayers sent our way
We love you and want to say

Happy New Years!

Mason's first visit with Santa

My mom loves Santa pictures. Last year was the first time we didn't see Santa (since Christian is in Canada). We knew how excited she was for Mason's first picture with Santa so I wanted to make sure he wasn't scared. I visited all the free Santa's around town. Practice made perfect and Mason loved Santa and we got lots of cute pictures. These are the ones we bought. SO cute! Merry Christmas!

Beard hat

My friend Josie made mason (and travis) beard hats this year for Christmas. I made her girls some doll clothes for a trade. I thought mason looked so cute in his and so I wanted some dad and son photos. Travis even cooperated for the most part!
