Saturday was beautiful weather. We went with family on a hike up R mountain in snowshoes. It was a blast. The best was running down and jumping of cornices. Thanks for taking the pictures James.Brett had a great time in the backpack. They even crashed a few times and he never whined once. Near the end of the hike Jeff and Brett were in the rear and Brett started to whisper in Jeff's ear "go daddy, go go." They started off and we all raced to the parking lot. It was Jeff and Brett vs James, until James face planted in the snow. When we made it home and got out of the car Brett yelled, "yay, did it." He was so proud.

We took a trip to Utah to see Hailee and Derek. It was so awesome to see them and hang out. We played scrabble every night and watched movies. Of course, me and Hails were out cold during the movies, but that's typical Allen girls when a movie is on and it's past 8:30pm. Brett just loves Derek so much, he even has named the color brown Derek.
One of Brett's favorite places in the house: the pantry. He likes to have his snacks placed on the lowest shelf in the pantry. Brett's personal snack bar. Hat: check. Shirt: check. Socks and shoes: check. Pants: ?? okay, weird.
We spent a weekend at the cabin in Island Park, just our little family. The driveway hadn't been plowed but Yota (Jeff's truck) trudged through 3 feet of snow and we made it...barely, we were nearing the red zone on the RPMs. It was so relaxing and nice! Our weekend in pictures:Dantzel woke up early one morning and Jeff kindly got her and took her downstairs. When Brett and I finally woke up this is how we found them. So cozy.
Brett love to play in the "snowing". When we were there he kept saying "Wow, big snowing" I translated that as "wow, there is a lot of snow".
