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.
Hey everyone, just so you all know, my tonsil surgery has been postponed to April 2nd. The Dr. seems to think he needs to take a vacation or something...Argh! Also on a very funny note.....Kaden informed Russ this morning that, " God sure makes some good oofu!" Just so you know, oofu is chocolate milk to Kaden. Hope everyone enjoys their St.Patty's Weekend and parties...please be safe, I have to work and I don't want to see your butts in the ER. On another note, does anyone watch the news anyomore? It is on right now and is so depressing. It seems like everyone is stinking CRAZY! Anyway, have a great weekend!
O.K. so this is not the garden we have this year, but I am hoping. This was are garden 2 years ago. Our garden is still bare right now but I am getting ready to start planting. It is always so fun to plan the garden and figure what to put where and how much to put in. Then reality sets in when the weeds start to come up. I love my garden and I love getting the fresh food from it. I also love canning. I did green beans, salsa, sweet pepper relish, apple sauce and apple cider last year. This year I hope to do all that and spaghetti sauce and potatoes.
I do have a slight problem this year though. As many of you know, our house is for sale. We do have a garden plot at our other house at the farm, so I am thinking that I will have two gardens this year. I hate to not have one here at the house, since I know it will get more attention, but if our house sells, I wouldn't have any produce unless I plant at the farm too. So, if our house doesn't sell this summer, I am going to have a lot of food to put up. Glad we bought the extra freezer a few months back. Who knows what to do except God. You know that he is laughing at me stressing about this because he knows exactly what is going to happen.....if only I had that foresight! We are hoping that the house sells soon so we can move during warmer weather. We have had a lot of lookers recently so that is hopeful!
I hope you all love how I am only blogging once per week at best lately, but I have been busy. I am still taking pics on a fairly regular basis, just not posting them. So, I decided lots of posts on one day was better than nothing at all. This is a random shot from a few nights ago. Kaden fell asleep on our bed while watching his show. I guess having stickers on your shirt is too boring, so he put them on his face before falling asleep. I had to pull them off before I put him in his bed and let me tell you, he was out! He didn't even move as them came off his face. These are the same stickers that Jim and DJ gave him for his birthday. He puts stickers on everyday and anyone else who is around gets at least one if not more. I recommend buying sticker books for kids this age, the book still has more left in it than Kaden has used and we have had it since January.
Yesterday Russ and I took Kaden to the Gist Ranch near Summersville. It is ran by the Conservation dept. and is really nice. This was the first time Kaden has shot a gun. He shot a .22 and LOVED it! He was not scared at all! We had to bring home his target and it is now hanging up on the wall of his room. He is very proud. After he was done shooting, he started picking up all the left over brass on the ground and putting it in my glasses case. We now have .22 and .40 casings all over our car and floor at home.
