Winter Happenings

Recently we had unseasonably warm weather-50's and 60's in Feb.! Looking through pictures reminded me of how it looked not long ago! (January)
But it was a good day when this girl got her acceptance into the horticulture program at a local college.

 I enjoyed a trip "out west" to help my Aunt celebrate her birthday with some of my cousins. My Aunt Ronnell lives multiple hours closer to us now, and it is lovely to be able to see her more often. Shopping, eating, talking and sleeping...a perfect weekend get away!

Christmas Visitors

My cousin Julie and family visited us over the holidays on the way to and from their family Christmas. Yay!
 We always find time to do a few crafts. These are plastic ornaments drawn on with paint pens.

A little dip into "Little House" territory with homemade molasses candy drizzled onto fresh snow.

Some pre-Christmas Christmas.


As usual when we are together, a good time was had by all.

This and That-Dec.

 Science project for chemistry class.
 Christmas party with buddies.

 Mom and Dad and I went one night to see the lights at the Falls.

We attended Christmas at the Cathedral again with Husband's brother and sister-in-law, and also were lucky enough to have my cousin and her husband visiting and able to go with us.

More Fall Catch Up

 Spent a fun afternoon helping our buddies move some furniture.

 Harvest in the night. Crops were better than expected.
 Celebrated 28 with L and I at her favorite place for lunch.
 Found our friends at college visit. M is planning a horticulture degree for college.

 Buddies home from college. A little extended girl time.

 Had time for some fall tillage.
Three of us went to Atcheson, KS for a senior art show. Cassandra was one of my art students, and a dear family friend from our home school group.
 First real snow prompted a Bill Watterson tribute in the driveway.


Shower for Annamarie, home school buddy of Anna's who is marrying another home school friend. So fun! The "kids" are growing up.
Buddies Anna, Sarah and Abby helped with the shower.
