Dulces Y Galleta!!! mmmm.....

                                                Lovely bag of sugar...the main contents of
                                                most sugar cookies=)DUH!

                                             We got to babysit our two nephews, so Mom
                                              thought making cookies would be a fun
                                              project....It was!(Of course!) This is Felisha
                                              and Logan mixing up the dough. Logan said that
                                              since he was a really good cook, he would need
                                              to wear an apron.(not because he is messy or
                                              anything=)
                                      

                                                      Our innocent little Ryan"making
                                                      cookies. He rolled the dough into
                                                      little globs and then he would say
                                                      "This not big enough to make cookie.
                                                        Me eat it?" He is such a cutie!


                                                Dad said that these were the best sugar cookies
                                                we have ever made. Mom told him it was
                                                probably because they were made with little
                                                boy slobbers...

                                                      Resees ball in the process of dipping....

                                            Bon bons and Resees balls dipped in chocolate
                                            and almond bark.
                                            

                                              Mom made delicious pecan tasies. They are just
                                              the right size for pecan pie. Pecan pie is so rich
                                              that these tiny "pies" are perfect.

A Season to Blog About!!!

                                          
                                              I guess I cannot make excuses about why I have  
                                              not been keeping our blog updated...but I am 
                                              going to try anyway...I have been very busy!!
                                             So it is Christmas time---Yea! I love love this time
                                             of year to celebrate Jesus birth! The picture(above)
                                             is my cute little "gingerbread" nativity scene. I 
                                             made it last week at the home of dear friends of 
                                             ours. It was so much fun to make and I can't wait
                                             to eat it. "Jesus" is made of a tootsie roll and his
                                             head is a yellow M&M...yummy!


                                             The snow in the picture is white frosting, of course.
                                             My reasons for mentioning the obvious, was to 
                                             give me opportunity for announcing that we have 
                                             not had our Christmas snow. I do love the looks of 
                                             snow and the fact that it gives moisture to the grass,
                                             although I would like it more if it were warm...
                                             Anyway I do hope we get to have our 
                                             "White Christmas!" =)
                                             
                                            What are your Christmas plans??? Love to hear 
                                             from you! I would tell you our Christmas plans but
                                             they change everyday...JK...(almost!wink-wink=)

Canning some good old goat! :)

                                    

                                            Last weekend we had antelope hunters
                                            on our ranch. They are all very nice. We
                                            have had them every fall for 4 yrs. Every
                                            year they donate the meat to our family!
                                            We butchered yesterday and I canned
                                            some stew today.

                                                     Sanitizing my quart jars...




                                            I put my hot antelope stew in with a little garlic &
                                            salt.



                                           ....filled jar





                                           Just some of the quarts....made about 14 quarts.
                                           It was a busy day but lots of fun! :)

Wonderful to be back with my wonderful sister! :)

 

                                            
                                              I had a great time at Eagles' Wings this  
                                                             summer
                                              cooking, cleaning and spending time with new
                                              friends, but it is nice to be back with Lisha. :)
                                              We have weeded the garden, taken pictures,
                                              played music, baked and laughed together!
                                            
                                               Since camp, I have enrolled for college, taking
                                               classes for an associates degree in Graphic
                                                                       Design.
                                               So far I have made 100% on two exams! God is
                                               Amazing......Proverbs 2:6-
                                                The Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth
                                                    cometh knowledge and understanding.
                                          
                                             Great to be back and I will try to keep you all
                                                                        updated!

Rain and Green Grass!

We have had about 5 inches in the last two weeks.    



It is nice to see green grass instead of brown.

A glimpse of beauty!

  There is always a colorful sunset awaiting us
at the end of the day.          



                                   A prickly pear! Haven't seen one in
                              bloom in a long time. It sure is a pretty sight.

Baby Chicks! So cute.

           

                                           Just a week ago or so they WERE really cute.
                                           Now that they are losing their down they
                                           aren't so cute although they are funny to
                                           watch when you put a cricket in there.Then
                                           they go crazy. Mom is the one that has to
                                           clean out the bucket or drinker.Hopefully we
                                           can move them to an outside cage so
                                            it won't be necessary to clean..

My "Proverbs 31" Mom....


Happy Mother's Day Mom!
I wish I could be there with you.
I Lovez you and miss you!



Proverbs 31:26-28
She openeth her mouth with wisdom: and in
her tongue is the law of kindness.

She looketh well to the ways of her household,
and eateth not the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up, and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praiseth her.



Dear Mom,
Thank you for being a godly Mom. I
am so grateful to God that he not only
gave me a loving, and caring Mom,
but a godly Mom. Someone I can look
to for advice, love, concern and prayer
for my life.  I love the way you are so 
diligent in the study and memorization
of the Scripture. I have learned how 
important it is to have the Word of God 
hidden in my heart. 
I love you Very Very Much!

Really Random...

The wind REALLY blows!   

                                               



 This is one of our big corn bags.It is a good thing
Manny was there to hold it and keep it from blowing
away,although it almost took him with it :) I guess
we could take advantage and use it as a parachute!


                                             We thought maybe we could replace the dog
                                                but it didn't really work. JK:). Actually this
                                                is our Grandpa's calf that needed a
                                                substitute momma for a little bit.He is
                                                    back with his real momma now.

Spring ....or so we thought!







                                This LOOKS like springtime, does it not? It sure doesn't feel like it though.
                             It has been rather chilly around here.Hopefully it will turn spring one of these days!

BRANDING DAY

                                                                                          After the crew got the cows and calves rounded up, Dad and some others helped sort the babies
 from the momma cows. Then we began branding...
Joe started us off roping a calf.

\
                                        
                                                                                                                                 Becca and Manny flank the calf, Mr. Pete cuts the ear,
and Grandpa brands. (Mrs. King is in
the background taking pictures! Yea!)



...the branding...


The Boss man! The BEST DAD in 
the world.



Colby and Allison were able to come help
us with the brand. We tried to get some pix 
of the boys. This is MY cute nephew Ryan.:)


Snack Time!!! Yea! Mrs. Cindy King made 
some very delicious cookies. :)

 
 
Two cute little cowboys!


This picture makes it look like it was a pretty 
day... it was very windy and cold. We all got 
pretty covered up in dirt. It was so nice to
take a shower! :)

Finally... We have a new update on our blog!!!

We use Wild Blue for our internet...which limits your monthly downloads. We went 
way over our limit. Our consequence was EXTREMELY slow internet.:(  It was not 
even fun to  try to check our email. We finally got it back down and it is so 
exciting to get back to blogging. Since we did not have the internet to take up our
evenings we did a lot of practicing music. ( Mom and Dad liked it) :)

Snow Timez.....

Yea! We finally got a good snow! I think we had about 4-5 inches.To some that may not sound like
much at all, but this has probably been the most snow we've had in a long while.:) While looking at the
beautiful, perfectly white snow,  I was reminded of David's Psalm to the Lord God-

"Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me , and I shall be whiter than snow." (Psalm 51:7)
I think that is quite a verse. David is not asking to be as white as snow, but whiter  than snow! I
think it would be amazing to have a heart that is whiter than snow. The wonderful thing to be sure of
is that, when you have repented of  your many sins, Jesus Christ washes away the iniquities, and makes you
clean within. My desire is to have a heart that is clean, maybe even....whiter than snow! :)   
      

                                               This heifer was diligently leading her baby
                                               through the blizzard. It looks like it was just
                                               born a couple hrs. before.


                                                      Pretty sunrise after the snowy night.


                                                    Felisha and I decided to build a snowman
                                                    but not just any old ordinary snowman...
                                                    we made a cowboy snowman, he goes
                                                    by the name Minnie.


                                                              ...Felisha and Minnie...

                    
                                                                  ...Minnie and Me...
