Russell and I have been married 8 years, have a 4 year old son, I work as a Radiologic Technologist, Russ is a Funeral Director and Embalmer. We enjoy our farm and raising cattle, reading, and playing with our son. We like to take trips, although not nearly as often as I'd like. We try to follow God and serve him and are always learning new parts of our faith.
This is a collage of Santa coming to G-ma Joyce's house on Christmas. The kids loved it, Santa handed out presents and patiently waited for pictures with everyone. If there is a picture you want to see larger, just click on the picture and it will enlarge it for you.
This is Kaden's new 4-wheeler. He is in love with it. It lives in Roy's horse trailer and I think that if it was a little warmer, Kaden may live there too. His Pa, (Roy) has already upped the speed to the second gear so it goes faster. Luckily Kaden did get a new helmet and knee pads. I have a little hunch that we may meet our insurance deductible this year.
Sorry I haven't blogged in forever. As with everyone else, we have been very busy. So, this is Kaden pretending to be a house cat. He has a song that is called Barn Cat and it goes like this, "I'm a barn cat, not an alley cat, not a house cat ..... and so on. Soooo, he was wheeling a cooler around the house one day and decided that he was a house cat, so this is his representation of a house cat. He is so funny.
Kaden and I raked leaves this morning. He had a blast! He buried himself, dove into them, and threw a bunch in the air. He is really good help and has his own rake. Did anyone else brave Black Friday??? I went to Walmart at 4:30 am this morning and it was utter craziness!!! I thought by being there before 5:00, when the sale started that I was doing good. Little did I know there were people there waiting all night, in Houston, Mo!! My Mom was one of the die hard shoppers, she took my Dad and got to Walmart at 2:30 am--NUTS, but the good news is she scouted out where the GPS units were and picked me one up, since I am not so dedicated.
Russell got our Christmas lights up on the house, it is so pretty. Kaden has always loved the lights and so do we. Kaden has informed me for 3 days straight that he wants Christmas now. I have tried explaining......to an almost three year old, explaining is pretty much useless. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and survived Black Friday, I am almost tempted to shop for the rest online!
This has got to be Josh's kid....Kaden loved the back massager. We had an early Thanksgiving dinner at G-pa Bud and G-ma Betty's house Sunday. They cooked for 2 days before and we had enough food left over to feed 10 other families. Angie and her gang were up from Texas for the weekend for some deer hunting. We all had a lot of fun and ate too much as usual. Hope everyone has a good week!
Saturday Russell , Roy, Kaden and I worked cows. It was very cold. Kaden made it until his cowboy stick hit him in the eye, so we retired to where it was much warmer. The cows listen to Kaden very well.....something about a two foot tall boy with a hard stick seems to make the cows move. I think they think he is a really mean dog. Whatever, he is a good helper and has a lot of fun too.
