The First Big Snow of the Year!

This is the first snow this year with more than a couple of inches. In our family it's a tradition to have doughnuts and hot cocoa on the day of the first big snow, soooo, guess what we get after dinner tonight! Mmm! :-)

The wind was really blowing on my way out to the barn this morning!

Are these horse blankets different from what you usually see?

I thought the foam on the milk this morning looked a little like the snow.

"Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool."
Isaiah 1:18
Isn't it wonderful to know that in spite of the dirtiness of our sin, God can and will make them as white as the snow from heaven? What a God!

Little House...Under the Tree

This is a house on River Rd. that we pass occasionally. The style is very similar to that of our house in Tennessee - maybe that's why I've always liked it so much:-)

It's cute and tiny and... maybe I should stop there. I guess it reminds me a lot of the log cabin we had in TN. I think most of us kids would have liked to live there instead of the big house! :-)
If you're wondering why it's been so long since I've posted, it's because I've been sewing like a maniac!!!! MaryBeth and I finally finished our bridesmaids dresses. I would post pictures, but I don't want to spoil anything:-) This is JoAnna's dress - I just finished it today. I'll try to post more often (hahahaha)

Pictures of Buddy!

Here are some pictures of Buddy with his new owner, Stacey. She is with the mounted police near Muskegon, and this is a camping trip that they went on. Stacey and Buddy are on the far left.

Here they are again - I think he's looking really good!

Happy boy! :-)

Is this what you call desperate for a blog post? :-) Stephen and I stayed home while Daddy and the kids took Mama to the airport yesterday. Bread needed to be made, so I decided to experiment with pictures while it was cooling.

Fresh out of the oven...

Out of the pans...

A different angle...

Game Night!

Last Sunday evening a couple of the girls organized a game night at church. Thank you girls!

First Caleb and Marty played a game with a spoon camera. One of them held a spoon up, took a picture, and the other person developed it revealing who the first person had taken a picture of. Very interesting!

This is Snorta - talk about sounds! I wish I would have taken a video, but everyone was playing. This game takes an incredible memory if you're going to get anywhere!

The next game was Upset the Fruit Basket. I haven't figured out how to set the shutter speed on my camera, but you can see the effect - people were really moving trying to get a seat! (There is one less seat than the number of people playing the game)

An Awsome God!

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;

What is man that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man,that thou visitest him?

For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Psalm 8:3-5

This is Cindy shortly before she calved. She doesn't look as fat as she did last week because the calf had already dropped.

Here are the horses all together. L to R: Essie, Montana, Penny, Brandy.

Here's one of all the livestock together. They are usually all spread out over the pasture, so I was surprised to find them all in the same area.

I felt so bad for this girl - her udder was so big that she had a hard time walking anywhere!
She feels much better now!

Here's her baby.

Evening at Lora's

On Tuesday Lora invited a bunch of girls over for an evening of games. This is kick-the-can - thank you, Lora!

Can you see Lora behind the wood pile?

The sky was incredible that evening - there were really dark, black clouds, but the sun was shining, which gave an interesting twist to the pictures!

Yes, the windshield on our van is dirty! :-)

Look at how dark the sky is, yet the sun is shining directly on the house.

Beautiful fall!

Guess Who's In The Bathroom?

I took one look at this, and there was no question about who was busy behind that door! :-)

New Additions!

Well, Ebony left yesterday. We'll all miss her greatly, but two other horses have taken her place.

Essie is the dominant mare, so she's learning to accept her new charges!

The red roan is named Brandy, and the black is Penny. JoAnna is thrilled - can you tell?

Here's an up-to-date picture of Montana. I just can't wait until she turns 3!

Beautiful Colors!

I figured I'd better try to get a few pictures of the colors before they're gone!

They don't seem as bright as usual though.

I just thought the cloud formation here was interesting.

This is the unfinished roundpen - now it's not looking like it will ever be finished! :-)
