Christmas is this weekend! The month of December is a busy one for everyone. I feel the pressure of getting EVERYTHING done. We start the month with a cattle show. Then a birthday on the 13th, 26th and 28th. Then there's Christmas and New Year's. So as much as I love the holidays, I'm tired and ready for the new year.
Today is the babies last day of school. There is snow on the ground, everything is bought other that the few things the kids want to get their dad. So in the next couple of days I will take a breath and sit back and soak it all in.
I am thankful, for my wonderful husband. The health and happiness of my children. Our farm that we take great pride in. And the fact that we have everything we need to be happy.
LOVE, HEALTH and EACH OTHER!
Nothing else matters. So to all of our friends and family, enjoy your family and soak in the moment!

Duff is getting so big. He's a typical puppy. I had forgotten how much like a 2yr old they are. He gets into everything! And he chews on everything he can. But he's also smart and he makes funny faces at you when he knows he did something he shouldnt have.

So we havent had family pictures in a while...So I made a list of what I would like and how I would like it.. My friend Amber came a few weeks ago and I took her and her daughters pictures with her camera and gave it back to her. Then sunday she came and took ours with my camera. I'm soo happy with them. I have several more and will post them. Actually, I have a ton of pictures to post. I had surgery on both my legs and things around here have been super busy. We have our first cattle show of the new show season December 3,4 & 5th.

I looked out the window one morning and noticed the electric tape down and all the cows hangin around... So I went out to check and this heifer had gotten in and got stuck! It took me over an hour to get her out and I was not a happy girl. But the heifers ok and she stayed away from the hay after that.
This is not our most recent photo... I'm a little behind with posting. I plan on updating the blog and making a better effort to stay up to date.
Anyway, I took this a few weeks ago with my phone. He is growing way to fast! And we have started working him on cattle as of last week. He does well so far, but he hasn't gotten kicked yet. I will try and take some picts of him working. He is true to his breed and very smart.
Our beautiful little girl is VERY allergic to bug bites of any kind. She has had this issue from birth. According to the Dr it is because she is fair headed. And supposedly if she's gonna outgrow it, it will be around age 9 or 10. So this is what is looks like when she get bitten. It swells really bad and then she gets a blister at the bite area.
She wears the blue clip on and is sprayed with bug spray. But sometimes she gets mad and refuses to wear her clip on and this is what happens. She even has to wear one at school at recess. And if you want to know if you have fleas she can come over and let you know within about 30 mins.
