Tahoe - sights

Amazing Lake Tahoe

Sadly this picture could be so much more beautiful, but it was at the top of the gondola and my knees were wobbly.

A nighttime view from the porch of our hotel room.

Tahoe - snowman

This is our snowman. I like to call him Jack, not sure why.
We made the mistake of waiting until the end of the week to make Jack and because of some beautiful weather the snow was very dry. Jack is really more like a smowmound than a snowman, but he's got a great hat.

Tahoe - skiing

Even though I have been skiing several times in my lifetime I am known by my husband as the worlds slowest skier. This combined with a caution that has come with motherhood and age gave me a little less confidence than I was wanting going into our recent ski geared vacation. So I was thrilled when my dad said he had set up a lesson for the 2 of us.

We took it pretty slow the first day, but by day 2 we were skiing with the group. There were 15 of us that went to Tahoe, including 3 kiddos, and the majority of us skied.

This is the amazing view as you ride down the lift. That's right, ride down! unless you want to ski the black that sits under the lift. We DON'T ski black (by we I mean my dad and I, because Pete did ski this.)

2007. A year in review

Thought I would share some highlights from the past year. Enjoy.


January always brings some much needed naps.


The boys and I took a road trip to Florida with my parents and Pete headed for Kenya.


Campbell turned 2! And spring came- so pretty, but
very bad allergies.


Wilson is 4!


It warmed up and we headed outside. This is the boys playing in a bucket of water on my parents back porch. A bucket of water can be lots of fun.

The church anniversary and a girl trip with my mom's family.


the 4th.


All the Loibner cousins together in NLR.
It was a week long party.


Razorback Games


Leaves changing, Castle Bluff, to Stuttgaurt, Camping, Halloween-
October was good.


In November I had the pleasure of taking lots of pictures.


Peter and I celebrated 8 years of marriage.
I really love 8's.
Hope you have a great 2008!
