Butcher Time!!!




                                          Saturday kept us busy helping Grandpa Wells
                                          butcher his beef. We began at 8:00am and
                                          finished at 2:00pm.


                                         We did the butchering right here in our new
                                          kitchen! Even though we had a saw, grinder
                                          and all those knives in the house we did not
                                          do any damage as far as we can see.:)
                                          In this pic. we are skinning the meat so it will
                                          be clean. If you look in the background you
                                          can see Dad and Joe cutting T-bones.



                                          Break Time! I have to say it looks nasty and
                                          messy but our meat really is clean.:) It is a
                                          big  job getting the mess cleaned up.
                                     


                                                     Mom is holding up a shoulder steak.
                                                     She wraps the meat in plastic and then
                                                     gives it to one of us to wrap in paper,
                                                     tape and label.



                                          Some of the labeled packages.

J & M Blacksmith Productions!


Joe and Manny busy forging in their little blacksmith
shop. In this picture Joe is getting ready to make a
leaf and Manny is preparing the fire.



Wow! very nice BIG fire! I was not expecting that.
The boys informed me that sometimes they need the
fire to be real big.

And the final piece of art!

Happy New Year!!!


It is so hard to believe that it is already 2010!It seems like
last year went by so fast. I am so excited about starting this
new year with ambition toward new opportunities and challenges
that God Himself sets before us. Thinking about this new year
brings a verse to mind...Philippians 3:13-14:
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended:but this one
thing I do , forgetting those things which are before, I press toward
the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Have A Blessed New Year!!!
