Five in Boise

Winter Festival

This has been a busy but fun month so far.  I, T, P, L, and mom came for a visit on the 4th.  It was a quick trip but a really nice one.  We got to spend some time with P and L at the Discovery Center, which is like a children's hands on museum.  Then we went to the Winter Festival in McCall.  There were some nice snow scuptures.  Then we went tubing.  Also, everyone was here for A's boy scout eagle ceremony.  It was so nice to have everyone there.

A, hubby, and I are A's eagle ceremony.  We are so proud of him.  We had a cereomony with his whole troop and some of his past leaders.  10 years of scouting all come to this point.   Afterward we had a nice reception at the house and I think everyone had a good time. 

Top pic is at the reception.  E, C, and A, with A's best friend and A's girlfriend.  They haven't been going out for too long so this was the first time the family was really introduced.  She seems like a sweet girl and A is happy so that is all that matters.  That is if he has to date. ;o)

Next is a pic of I at the reception.  I can't tell  you what it means to me to have family come all the way to the NW to see us.  Thanks guys!
