Tree Tapping Day

Snow Shoe Day!

We have gone to Snow Shoe Day at the kids’ preschool 4 times—this is the first year we’ve had great snow! It was a really fun afternoon and Naomi is a natural.

Reconstructive Surgery

Mom had to perform some emergency surgery when Cheetah lost an eye! Sam tells us Cheetah isn’t as soft as when he was new, and his eyes are a little scratched, but it’s only because he has so much love in him.
