I'm back!

It's been a couple of hectic months around here. I can't believe how crazy the holidays can be and what a relief it is when they are over. We had a very nice Christmas with a lot of fun family time. We did get our new puppy, her name ended up being "Prancy". She is a doll. I will try to attach some pictures. We have really started some awesome new Year's resolutions. To lose weight and to get out of debt. I'm pretty excited about all of it! So far, this week has been difficult for me with all of the storms and snow. It makes me want to eat, and we had to spend money to stock up on gas and animal feed etc. SO, maybe this week will be better. Kids go back to school and life should resemble some "normalcy" again!

Apple Hill

Here are a few pictures from our fun day yesterday at Apple hill!

Sick Again!

Man, this is getting depressing! I had to cancel all of our plans again today because Bella and Izaaak were up with the flu last night! I'm telling ya! What a pain! I hope Rachel, Todd and I get it soon so it is done before this weekend! Here is another Jack Handey Quote that I thought was hilarious!!
To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

Going to Apple Hill

We're off to Apple Hill today with Uncle Josh and Aunt Hannah. It's a beautiful cold day, should be great weather for apple hill. It is such the ultimate fall experience! I hope to bring that kind of experience to northern Nevada with our farm someday! We updated my website last night a little, that was fun. Check it out! Someone wrote an article about our family and it was in the "Valley View" newspaper. I need to get an article and put it on the website. Well, off to Apple Hill!!

Funny Quote!

So I added new items to my google homepage and I found Deep Thoughts by "Jack Handey". This morning it said:

Maybe in order to understand mankind we have to look at that word itself. MANKIND. Basically, it's made up of two separate words "mank" and "ind." What do these words mean? It's a mystery and that's why so is mankind.

– Jack Handey

I used to love this about Saturday Night live! We're off to church. It rained last night which was nice, we all slept like rocks! We saw the Bee Movie last night with the Cowleys, it was pretty cute. Here are a few pictures of Shrek and Fiona's Wedding and Engagement. Enjoy!

Everyone's SICK!

What a bummer... Todd called me today at work and told me that Abby was sicker than a dog! I am so bummed. I am all packed and ready to go see my Grandma in Santa Rosa tomorow. Bella is sick too and Todd said he is sick with the stomach flu too! I guess we are going to have to reschedule. Tonight is slow at work. We went down and got dinner that the Union reps are giving away. We are going to have a vote for the Union next month. Maybe that will help this place a little! Well, hopefully tomorow will be a better day!! I'll try to work on this a little this weekend since I will be home!

Good Morning!
Last night we went to our friend's house, the Southams, to have dinner. They had three little Chihuahua pups. We decided that we would get one for Rachel (the family) for Christmas. It is a little female. We were working on a name this morning. We decided on Consuela Conchita de Lola. (After the "Nacho Libre" type of naming). We are looking forward to having a tiny dog for once. Someone we can dress up in "bling"! Fiona and Shrek are going to get "married" today. We think Fiona will be coming into heat any day and we want to make sure they are "legal"!! We are goin' to the DOGS around here!!
