Merry Christmas From the Oregon A-Team

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years from the Oregon A-Team.

It was a very busy year for us all.

Ashton is overhauling his website business. He’s been creating and marketing custom website designs since 2003 with Websites in a Flash, but has started to really focus on online marketing (SEO and online ads).

Anna’s continues to run her horse barn, Whispering Oaks and her dog-breeding business, Sweet Pine Puppies. She has been enjoying learning so much about dogs and dog training.

Atley is 7

He loves art more than anything. He draws and paints. He loves training dogs with Mom.

Anna is Atley’s Cub Scout Leader as a Wolf. Atley loves soccer. He’s competitive and loves challenging his brother.

He loves to play with his two best friends, who are neighbors.

Archer is 9

He loves reading and math.

He just learned how to solve the rubik’s cube in about a minute.

He is in the Webelo Cub Scouts. Ashton is his leader.

Archer also loves soccer and Karate. He just earned his Purple belt.

All the boys went to a local Oregon cub scout camp, which was a blast!


Archer’s 9th Birthday

What a great day! When Archer was young he used to say “This is the best day ever.” all the time. Today Archer said, “This is the best birthday ever.” and it was pretty darn fun. We did a lot!

We headed to Lincoln City to shoot some indoor archery, which was a blast. There were 4 targets to shoot, and we shoot non-stop for 1.5 hours.

There were a good number of bullseye’s too!

Then we had cake. Archer picked out a sweet lemon tart cake.

Then we went to the arcade and played Minecraft dungeons. This was the first arcade I’ve seen that gives you physical items for playing. Archer ended up with a bunch of Minecraft cards, which he loves!

Then we saw Sonic 2!

Happy Birthday Archer!


Happy Halloween

We had a wonderful Halloween day. Our great friends Katie and Brian came to visit for the weekend.

We started the day off with a three mile hike with the boys and Bella.

Then we went to our neighborhood Halloween Party. We all dressed up as Pirates, and I ran the Halloween Contest. Katie and Brian put together some amazing Smurf costumes!

We had a great time at Erin’s. They really went all out with decorations and treats and fun events. We’re very glad to be part of the first one!


Happy Birthday Nana

It was a wet day with lots of rain, but we still celebrated with 4 games of Space Base before the end of the night. We did two 2-player games, a 5-player game and a 4-player game.

Happy birthday Carol! Here’s to an even better year!


2021 Horse Riding!

Anna’s has built up a horse training business that is booming. She can’t take any more students right now.

Ashton even got a lesson a couple weekends ago. Today, we did an arena and trail ride with Ashton, Evan and Anna. Archer even got his horse for the arena ride.
