Snow Fort

Gram and Pop in Stockton bought us all block
makers and we got busy
Gram managed to find packable snow under all the
feathery snow that was falling.

We used water to wet some areas so it freezes
stiff overnight and perhaps we'll have a chance to
add to it with packable snow.

Santa came

Our stockings were filled
We left Santa 3 cookies and he ate 2 and a bite out of the third
and he helped himself to the milk in the fridge, as our note to him
suggested. Tristen and Bo even left Santa a gift from each of them.

No picture just GREAT news!!!!!

We have been in prayer for months to be able to quit milking before the snow flies and working on finding a new job to replace the income of the farm. We were blessed by GOD and his faithfulness with Fred being hired at Doc's Excavating on October 12,2009. We are now in the process of dispersing the cows in a couple weeks or if possible by local dairy farmers expanding their herd with some of ours, time will tell. We are happy to know that we are following God's will for our lives because the Bible says in 1 John 5: 14-15 This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us--whatever we ask--we know that we have what we asked of him.

Still under construction....

In the beginning, there was dark tar paper and then came
sheets of lathe.
and then there was daylight and the mortar was applied
as chores allowed.

we've waited weeks and now we have stone going on and staying on.

Bo and daddy are quite the masons.

Our experience

We arrived when one bus was leaving and this is the 2nd bus.
From the bus window, driving up to the drop off
for spectators.

We found out upon closer spectating that they were digging
a 9 foot deep pond.

We finally arrived.

The fire dept was called to spray water to keep the dust

Up close

She did finally get up and Bo darted away.

This specific cow is very different. She stands in the stanchion
with her front feet/legs crossed every time.

Tristen playing T-ball

Gram and Pop walking with Tristen after his game.
Each team congratulating on a game well played.

Made it to 1st base! Tristen did real well this game
hustling to get the ball while in the field after the opposing team
hit it.
