My absolute favorite TV show. I only really watch TV two nights a week... Sunday, Food Network, and Tuesday, Biggest Loser and then Chopped.

The throne

Trelawney prefers a chair on the couch over just sitting on the couch. :)

My secret to being able to sleep with a snorer...


I met my mom halfway between our towns today to pick up Hannah, who spent the last week at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We met at a quilt shop. :)

More Little People

Trelawney is getting in on the Little People act, too!

Little People

I love that my kids are crazy about my own Fisher Price Little People toys from the early '70s. They have no use for the new sets, but play for hours with the old ones!

Peanut butter ice cream

Homemade peanut butter ice cream with hot fudge sauce! My new favorite thing to make with goat milk. :)

Did someone slip me a Puking Pastille?

I spent the day horribly, painfully, violently sick. There was nothing else to photograph today.

My pet project

The remodel and addition of the Haskell Township Library, a project started by Bev, Erma Lea, and I about 7 years ago, and continued by Deb, Paul, and I for the past the years... And it is almost finished!

Also at IHOP... After Mark, Hannah and Elizabeth had dental work. Then we met my mom in Scott City and Hannah went home with her for a week to help out.


A rare outing for brunch, after the dentist this morning.

Fred and George, spying on the neighbors. I think what few hours cats aren't sleeping, they always seem to be watching out the window.

Hope went to the Snowball dance with her friend, Rhett. They looked so nice!

Ten Dinners!

I went to a Wildtree food prep party tonight and came home with ten meals all ready to freeze and pull out on a busy night. Awesome! I am going to host a party Feb. 12 and guests will make 10 meals ready to freeze and throw in the crockpot. It was a lot of fun to do the food prep and talk to friends... And it only took about an hour!

Hannah's Pet Peeves

Hannah gave a project talk at 4-H tonight on commonly misused or misspelled words. She took a "self-determined" project this year on Creative Writing. We learned that it drives her nuts when people misspell "definitely."

Sparkly, tinsely awesomeness

Happy Epiphany! Enjoy these views of our parish nativity set in all of its shiny glory!

Terrible fire

A gas leak caused a home in Sublette to burn down after an explosion. Two girls and a man were flown to Wichita. We spent the day praying and hoping they will be okay.

Fist bump, Mom?

The older siblings taught Trelawney how to bump fists, then "explode." Here she is offering to bump me. :)

In other news, she attempted to say her name... Tee-la-la!

Chocolate chip cookie bottom, oreo middle, brownie top... With vanilla ice cream and hot fudge. January 4 is my least favorite day of the year, so we tried to end it with something fun.

Got Milk?

We do... Goat milk, that is. Hannah slept way late this morning, and the goats, Padma and Amelia, were eager to be milked. Out it's amazing to me that the milk tastes like any other milk, but doesn't make us feel ill like cow milk does.

She sleeps

After acting out-of-sorts and tantrumming for the past several hours, Trelawney snoozes.

New New Year's Tradition?

We met my parents for New Year's weekend at a hotel in Garden City, enjoying swimming and exchanging gifts. The kids had a great time this morning playing with new toys from Grandma and Grandpa. I think we should do this every year!
