Life at our house

Sorry that I never get on here. I have to get some pictures put on here at some point!

Miss Heidi is growing like a weed! She has become a little farmgirl who likes to do the chores: feed the cows, sheep, chickens, and pick eggs. She is also a fan of trying to put things in the stove to burn. Mommy is not so impressed! Now when she comes in the house, she spends hours of putting on shoes, socks, another pair of pants... well, anything she can find to put on!

As for farmlife... not much changed. Tomorrow night we are going to be butchering some chickens. During the day tomorrow, Shawn will be hauling home hay bales. He got about 400 round bales this year... that's a lot of hours to haul it all home! Being as there is so much hay, I'm sure he will need to go buy more cows :) We didn't do any square bales this year. I think it is directly related to me being pregnant and not being able to pick them up. I put weight restrictions on and limit it to 50 pounds, so Shawn would have had to do it all himself!!!!

Shawn continues working. The weather has been great which keeps him busy! He is still working at Rob and Amy's building a new house for them.

I'm still working... a really tough work day today... we had a fall festival and went on a train ride in Duluth. Heidi went with me and she had fun! I'm still loving my job! I can't say that I'm excited to go to work everyday, but I can say that I don't dread going to work most days!

Baby #2 seems to be growing and developing as baby should be. So far, so good with everything. Hoping it continues to go well. Trying to teach a 1 1/2 year old the concepts of a baby coming isn't the easiest thing in the world to do. When asked where Mama's baby is, she points at my belly. Then ask where her baby is and she points at her belly. Have even gotten her to do the same for Daddy's baby :)

Maybe I can get some pictures done soon. I have them, just have to figure out how to get them off the camera and onto the blog and facebook. Can't do it on my laptop right now, so have to do it the other way and it is very slow.

Take care and enjoy your fall... hard to  believe it's already almost the end of October. Deer hunting is coming up!

Happy Birthday to our wonderful Dad/grandpa!!!
Hope your day was great!
Happy Birthday to my wonderful Father in law!!!
Hope your day was great!

Just playin some more...

The last picture was a fun way to spend some time...  but this one, from the middle of a race, is a lil more fun  :-)

Just trying to see whats different now...  Isa used to be able to upload pictures...  so fast in fact, that he was on the verge of wasting coffee, before the high speed, he used to be able to sip away as it uploaded...  With the high speed, he didn't have time to sip!  Since the blog has changed, he can't upload them at all anymore.

The wind blows cold ...

there is white stuff of some variety moving in closer by the hour ...
snow is in the forecast for Friday ...
the garden hoses are still stretched out and full of water across the yard ...
maybe we'll use them for ice spears instead ...
took what was probably my last afternoon nap on the porch today ...
the scenery is slowly going to monochrome ...
it is absolutely stunning.
