After a few days of rain, we decided we desperately needed to get out of the house and enjoy it coming down! We headed up to our normal stomping grounds, this time to slip, slide, and stomp in the mud.

We have been going back and forth about adding a four legged creature to our chaos. After much deliberation, we decided on a golden retriever puppy. In November, around Thanksgiving, we went and picked him out at 3 weeks old. He had to stay with mommy and daddy for a while longer and we picked him up at 8 weeks old. He definitely adds a whole'nother level of chaos to our lives but I wouldn't want it any other way.
First time meeting Harley
Harley never missed a meal!
The kids and I LOVED going to visit the puppies a few times. They were so fun to watch and how fast they changed!
He even sent us a Christmas card :)
His first day home!
The first week, he made himself right at home...

We spent a few days over New Years up in Tahoe, enjoying the non-existent snow but good friends, skiing, hot tubbing, and lots of laughter. The Wings are always such gracious hosts and Michelle makes the bestest sister wife, entertaining my kiddos even when I am stuck sick in bed at the condo.
Love watching these kids grow up together! We have spent almost every New Years together since they were born!
New uses of the sled since there wasn't very much snow!
Waiting for the fireworks. Zoe was getting some Brian snuggles in...
And I was busy doing "selfies" with Grey
Happy New Years from the DeShazers!
