You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

That time of year again....

Well it's that time of year we have been canning, canning, and canning some more. I'm starting to get to the end of it......well at I'm at the last of all my jars and I have already purchased 5 cases of pint jars this year I'm not buying anymore. I already have more jars than I have shelve space. I need a new home just to have a bigger food storage room!

The kids are getting into the swing of things with school and they are all loving their teachers! Hopeful we have a great school year. Fall is here and I'm loving it that means winter is just right around the corner. We have started to price some sleds for me and I'm getting really, really excited! Hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying the cool fall days!

Loving my dark hair!



I think I have found a winning color. I just loooove it! And the color has not faded like others I'm going on four weeks now and it still looks great!

Silly kid


look mom a big sucker! Silly Mr Cars.

Happy Birthday Daddy

Drum Roll Please..........

The pictures I have been promising for months upon months! I finally got the craft room clean a few weeks ago and got my vinyl up today.

Yes it is still stacked to the ceiling but when you have as much crap as I do you really don't have a choice.

I love, love my new wall the kids painted the pictures for me and the vinyl just inspires me I love this saying!

Look you can see the floor!!!!

Ice cream with G.G


Last Saturday we took a drive in the old Buick with G.G. to Rupes to get some ice cream. We had such a great time.

Cleaning.......

Almost two weeks later and I still have not found my fabric tape measure. I really don't want to go buy another one because you know as soon as I do I will find the old one. Oh how I hate cleaning teaches me I guess.....

September Sunrise.....

# 1 Reason I don't like cleaning......

After I clean I can't find anything. I cleaned my craft room yesterday and now I can't find my fabric measuring tape. Well I hope I find it soon I really need it, but on the plus side of things my craft room is pretty clean and that was one of my goals for this year. All I need to do now is get some pictures up that the kids are painting for me and put up some vinyl then it will be all done! Once I get that done I will post some pictures of the cleaned room like I promised back I think sometime in April oops it has taken me forever to get this done.

A very cold Mackay ride

We headed to Mackay again for another dirt bike ride. It was a very cold ride. The boys were going through the creeks and were going to fast their legs were so wet. We had to start a fire to warm them up and get them dry. We roasted pants and socks over the fire yummy! What a wonderful cold day should have dressed in my snow gear!

The view that morning it was cold and yes we did get rained on a little bit.

Cars man and II may be smiling now but I won't be in a minute when I go out in the cold!

Three little cute butts gathered around the fire.

Cars man without any pants....

There's his pants being roasted over the fire.......


Oh and here are his socks.......yummy I personal prefer a hot dog or something on the lines of that!

Zoo Fun....

Three weeks ago we went to IF to the zoo. We had such a great time it has been so long since we have been. Here are some pictures from our adventure.

Ty with the kiddos

Oh no Miss M!
Oh how this girl makes me laugh!

The three kiddos!

Family Reunion

A few weeks ago we had a family reunion at Indian Spring. We had a great time swimming and playing games with everyone. Here are a few pictures.

Go! Go! Go!
Getting ready to race......Ready, Set.....

GO!!!!!
Oh no we are going to fall over!

Go Miss M!!!

Yes! We won...

Great Grandpa J sleeping....

Bite on the butt

Miss M was out with the horse and Hey Barn bit her on the butt. She was after her baby because she bit her but Miss M was bent over with her butt in the air and the horse got her instead. Her butt is so bruised I would show everyone the picture of the huge bruise but I'm afraid she would disown me for the rest of her life. Other than that life is great the kids have started back to school and they are loving it. I'm staying busy with work, canning, and my side business and Ty is busy getting ready for spud and beet harvest. Hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoy the last of the warm days.
