Happy Thanksgiving!

This whole blogging thing seemed so easy . . . then we had Sean, who is wonderful, however, when I have free time the last thing I want to do is log onto blogger and spend that time writing, downloading, typing, forgetting to spell check, forgetting to proof read, etc. I would much rather be hanging out with the kid and Ryan. . . .so I am sorry for the lack of posts and subsequently the huge posts as of late. I refuse to give it (this blog) up, however, since I know many family and friends, especially all those who are out of town, appreciate the pictures and updates of this little guy. So I will stay to course because I suppose you can’t just join the party, but you actually have to participate in it. Ahhhh, the joys of technology!

That all being said, here is my big post that covers the last week or so:

We traveled back to Montana over Thanksgiving to see Ryan’s parents and stopped in for a quick “Hello” to my sister and her family while we were in big sky country. We had such a blast being on the ranch. It was Sean’s first time there and it was BEAUTIFUL! There was snow on the ground and wildlife everywhere. Sean had so much fun playing with Grandma and Grandpa, and Ryan had so much fun helping his parents out with the horses. Ryan looks so comfortable and natural on the Ranch working with his hands and doing what he loves – it is so good to see him enjoying those things. Did anyone see the latest People magazine? The Sexiest men alive edition? I am pretty sure I saw a picture of Ryan in his Wranglers and Cowboy hat in that one. And now for the pictures:
The first few pictures are from our time spent at the Ranch (where Ryan grew up).

If you enlarge the next three photos you can see the deer, coyotes, and elk that were wandering around outside the house.

We also managed to stop in and see my sister and her family on our way back home - here is Sean and cousin Addison
And what would a trip to Montana be without a raccoon skin cap?
Back home with a new do!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving - we have so much to be thankful for and on the top of our list is our wonderful family and friends! We love you all!
