A Few Recent Snapshots // Christmas & Snow

Hey y'all!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I did. We just stayed home like we always do... cuz there's really no place like home for the holidays. ;) I just thought I'd share a few pictures I took on Christmas Day. Well, not all of these were taken *on* Christmas, but they're all Christmas-y pictures, so.... yeah. hahah :P Hope you enjoy!

Sam was glad once we opened presents, because he loves laying under the tree. ;)

Oh yeah....
and we had a white Christmas! :)

 A family picture for the holidays! We're squinting like crazy because the snow was so bright. :P And I'm still wondering why I'm wearing that bulky coat while the rest of my family is toughing out the cold and looking so nice. Hahah... ohhhh well.

Yellowstone | Part 2

Okay, y'all... here's part 2! Hope you enjoy. :)

Mammoth Hot Springs (North Entrance to Yellowstone)

We stayed near the north entrance to Yellowstone, so we went through Mammoth Hot Springs whenever we entered/exited the park. These elk were around almost every time we drove through there! It seemed to be a favorite hangout spot for them. And it was SO neat, because we got to hear the males bugle several times!

Lower Falls...

Lamar Valley drive. We saw so much wildlife on this drive - lots of deer, bison, and antelope, and the views were beautiful!

Josh enjoying the view (and being silly). LOL

We saw this huuuge rock near the side of the road, and Josh wanted to climb it. So of course I had to get a picture. :D

Beartooth Highway. This road runs between Red Lodge, Montana and Cooke City, Montana. It winds back and forth all the way up to Beartooth Pass, which is 10,947 feet high! I think we all agreed that this was our very favorite thing we did on the whole trip. The views were just breathtaking!! It literally felt like we were in the clouds, and it was SO quiet and peaceful. More views below...

Cooke City, Montana

Cooke City General Store. This place has been opened since 1886!

Montana Moose Tracks ice cream. It was YUMMM-Y!

I love Pop's "serious" face. :P

( Mom didn't get any ice cream. She was shopping. hehe ;) )

Mammoth Hot Springs walk.

Bein' silly. =P

Feeding Goldfish to the park "wildlife." hahah!

And... that's all! Hope y'all enjoyed! I'm soo glad we were able to take this trip. It was a blast, and we really made a lot of great memories. I already can't wait to go back! :)

much love,
