Wonderful White Wet Stuff!

This is what we woke up to this morning....

Wonderful white wet stuff!!

Now I am NOT a big fan of snow, but we have been so dry and haven't had much moisture, so we will take all of this wonderful wet stuff that we can get! The good thing about wet snow this time of year....it will be gone in the next day or two!

And the more snow/rain/moisture that we get....The better chance that we will look like this again this summer! I LOVE GREEN!

Pizza Night!

Emily and Justin have started a nice tradition that I really like and appreciate! Occasionally on Friday nights they will bring pizza home from Pizza Hut for supper.

First of all, I LOVE pizza! It's on my list of favorite foods! Pretty much any kind of pizza! No, I'm not too picky especially if I don't have to cook it!

Another thing that I look forward to this time of year is fresh strawberries! Yum! Today I took out my angel food cake pan that used to be my Grandma Chisman's, and made an Angel Food cake. No, it's not from scratch but it's still pretty tasty!

I'm not too picky about how I eat my strawberries, but this is definitely one of the best ways!

Sunday Night Favorites

Sunday night is my night off. I don't cook supper. That in itself makes Sunday night one of my favorites! We usually eat popcorn or something out of a Schwans box. But, one thing that I will make is Butterfinger milkshakes! One of our favorites!

Take the following simple ingredients....

Add to the blender that we got 30 years ago as a wedding gift....

And, you get a yummy shake! Almost better than Sonic or Dairy Queen! Almost...

Another favorite for Sunday night, is watching The Amazing Race! I love this show! We are cheerin' for the cowboys from Oklahoma! Come on Jet and Cord, make us ranch people proud!

Happy Green Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day from the little leprechaun who likes to remind everybody that she is "one"!

I think that she is thinking about saying something here...

And, she has learned how to climb into the recliners. Thinks she is pretty big stuff!

Big Birthday Bash!

Yesterday was the big birthday bash for Tressie's 1st birthday. What a fun day it was with lots of family and friends coming to the party! She got this nice rocking chair from Great Grandma and Grandpa Chisman. She thinks she is pretty big stuff having her own chair!

We took a few minutes before most of the guests arrived to get some pictures to remember the day by. I think that these are the only pictures where she kept her hair bow and shoes on! They looked nice, but she really wanted no part of them. Oh, and in case you were wondering, she never did attempt to take the necklace and bracelets off that her Mama made her!

She loves birthday cards! Her Mama had to keep taking them away from her so that she could get her to open the gifts that came with them!

Grandpa and I got her this Dora play tunnel. So today, Sunday, we had time to let her play with it. She really likes it!

She had a great time playing peek a boo with her Mama!

And in case you get tired of crawling inside it....you can try climbing on the outside of it!

It was a great party and a fun day!

Birthday Girl!

Today is the Birthday Girl's special day! She is a year old! Grandma is having a hard time figuring out where the time has gone! It has been quite a busy and fun year! We started the day out by going to Limon to have lunch with her Mama and Daddy. Before lunch we visited with her Mama's co-workers at Farm Credit. Then went to Ruby's for lunch. We had to make a short stop at Alco. Can't go to Limon without visiting the Alco store!

When we got home she watched a little of the cattle sale on the internet with Grandpa. We decided since it was a nice day we should do one of her favorite things. Take a wagon ride! About half way into our ride, we found Hannah and Gabby's dog food dish. These two silly dogs take a notion to carry their dish off at times. I have even seen one of them carrying it around with dog food in it! Anyway, we decided to pick it up and take it back home.

We also made a trip to the goat barn. We usually don't have baby goats coming at this time of the year. But, several weeks ago a nanny had kids. Hmmm..that shouldn't be happening... After a little more investigating, Tony found about 40 nannies that were going to have kids. Oh.... I'll let you figure out how that happened! The last nanny of this un-scheduled kidding time, it kidding right now! We have 50-60 little baby goats running around. That is in addition to the 35 to 40 kids that were born in January for 4-H projects. I kinda got side tracked, didn't I?

I hear that Tressie's mama has made a cake for us to eat tonight after supper. She will have the "official monster bash" on Saturday.

Happy Birthday sweet baby girl! We love you more all the time!
