Merry Christmas!

 This was earlier in the day...

 And later in the day......
No coffee on the deck today :(

Hopefully it gets better from here on out, at least sure hope so for our baby calves sake.........Have a great evening! (If my kids go to sleep like they are supposed to I will be varnishing doors)

There's not much better than coffee on a deck!

 Sigh........first coffee on the veranda which is far from complete. Nonetheless it was wonderful. Perfect actually. My Mother-in-law and I sat there until Tanner woke up and then he joined us as well. Quite the view with the house trailer in the way lol.
View to the East. It was funny, we could hear someone coming from the East but couldn't actually see who it was until they were a quarter of a mile away to the West!
 View to the West.
 Cheers! The Hubby was a little pouty that he missed out on the first coffee on the veranda but he chose to go quading with his friends today.
 We also had the first supper in the new house tonight. I had been busy cleaning up in and outside of the house today and my Mother-in-law showed up to varnish and stain so I splurged for Subway. It was also my Father-in-law's birthday today so that was another cause for celebration.
 I'm sure she would love some of that icetea but I really don't need her crawling any faster than she already is!
 Big baby blues.
And then there is the picture of our typical little girl!

Anyways, hope your all having a great weekend! Tomorrow brings on a birthday party for the FIL and processing cattle.

Busy but great day

What did I do today?

Lots of laundry
Washed my floors
Cleaned my bathroom
Went to town to run some errands
Went for coffee to my mother-in-laws
Went for a walk with my daughter
Treated a bunch calves with my father-in-law
Got a pizza to go on the way to the accountant
Went to the accountant (We are getting money back! woot! woot!)
Picked up my Mother-in-law's van at the mechanic
Came and visited with some friends that are out from up North

A very busy but great day with lots accomplished. Note: Tanner went out to do chores with Grandpa this morning and then ended up staying at Grandma's playing with his cousin all day....so all I had was one child! Was kind of nice.

I am so ready for bed.

Sharing Moments

 On  his own Tanner decided to share his ice cream cone with his sister! I took a picture bc I thought that this probably won't happen many times in the future.

Happy Tuesday!

Where did my baby go?


Just look at these two pictures. Taken pretty much exactly one year apart! On the left is 2013 and above in 2012. And it's making me want to cry. Where did my baby go? He is growing up so fast. HE makes us so proud, he is such a smart little boy, so inquisitive (WHY, WHY, WHY!? lol.), is developing a love for farming and is a great big brother! Excuse me while I bawl my eyeballs out. It scares me to think that lately I have been wondering when I will hear about Pre-school registration because I would like him to go in the fall. But surely not already!? Yikes. I am going to go finish my coffee now before my kids wake up and my extra kids arrive....... Have a great day!

Have a great night!

Post #2 for Friday! House Update :)

 My pantry, shelving started, not done.
 Hallway, looking at Bathroom, Linen Closet and Master bedroom doors. There TRIM on!!!! Still have to stain and varnish doors.....:s

 Ali's bedroom closet....Shelving started.

 Ceiling fan in living room.
 Kitchen light fixtures. (keep in mind they are not hanging just right yet.................)
 Closet in kitchen/hallway.
 Looking into the bathroom at the closet.
 He kept opening and closing all the doors (they have no knobs on them yet) I told him that when he is bad that's going to be his timeout place haha.
 Tanners closet doors.
 Island light, not hanging right yet.
 So hopefully my cupboards are here next Tuesday! I can hardly wait to see them, I told my Hubby that when they are in and we are still not living in it, I'm going to go over and play house 24/7 lol. If you can't find me, I'll in my house opening and closing drawers! ha ha.

So that's whats been happening in there. Trim, installing interior doors and the master bedroom laminate is almost done too. We are waiting on the plumbing & heating people to come and start the duct work - - - they were coming this week. Well there is about 3 1/2 hours left of this work week! I guess we will see them next week or month or whatever! And hopefully in the next couple of weeks we will be able to dig in our power, water and sewer.

I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. Sigh........
