Adding Your Signature

I just sucessfully (I think) figured out how to add a signature to the blog. After some confusion and frustration, here we have it!! I have seen this addition on several blogs and followed the instructions on Blue Cricket Design. What do you think??

p.s. Thanks Lindsey for trying to help!

Winter Wonderland

It definitely turned out to be a white Christmas in our neck of the woods. The Blizzard of 2009 struck early and hard Christmas Eve morning and left us blanketed in snow. The winds were blowing all night Wednesday and on Thursday the snow started. I never saw an official total, but we had a least 6" of snow - a rarity around here. We had planned on traveling to Tulsa on Christmas Day, but decided to play it on the safe side and postpone our visit with my parents until this coming weekend.

Trace's siblings were all in, so we made the most of the snow with lots of outside time once the storm died down.

This is actually on Friday, Nathan in his new wagon, a present from mommy and daddy.

The three of us on Thursday.

Wyatt and Fungi in the tire tracks.

The house, there were deeps snow drifts from the wicked winds, I am sure they will linger for weeks to come.

Snow drifts behind the barn. It was funny to watch the cows make their way through the snow - I am sure it was a first for them.

Nathan on cousin Lillian's little 4-wheeler, he was ready to go!

Nathan and me going for a ride.


More to come...Hoping everyone had a safe, Merry Christmas!

Poor Man's Toffee


This is a must try for those of you with a sweet tooth. I have seen two different recipes floating around out there and will provide links to both. The "original" using saltines, and a more exotic recipe using cheez-its. This is very rich, but oh-so-good. I have begun the holiday baking, there are so many delicious cookie/treat recipes out there ans so little time!

Weekend Happenings

Sunday was a beautiful, although chilly, day. We took advantage and did some work outside. Christmas lights, yard work, and pasture work was all on the agenda...

Wyatt looking for a mole, he had dirt caked inside of his mouth!
That dog is a little crazy - he uses his paws and mouth to assist in hole digging.
Nathan all bundled up.

The cats hanging out in the shop.

The "herd"

Trace taking care of business.

New baby testing out the forage.

Nathan checking out the lights out front - he is very interested in the motion reindeer.
