Went and tried calling coyotes tonight after work. This is were I set up. Its so nice to get out and do that. Give me a chance to think and reflect on life. Didn't see any but it was nice to be out.

Then I came to this, the human monkey.

This little girl is just amazing. Being a parent is the best job ever. It's tiring and fustrating. But when Ruby smiles at us or laughs it just melts our hearts.
Until next time take care

Christmas day

We had a very nice relaxing day here. Ruby let us sleep in. It was soo nice not to get up till 8. Opened presents had cinnamon rolls and coffee. Just really enjoyed my girls. I got to read and finished the book Sharon got me. Enjoyed a mimosa.

When the turkey was cooking we went out and played in the snow. So much fun watching my girls laugh and the dogs play.

It was just a nice day. Wish we could have been with family. I guess there is next year. Until next time take care.

Christmas eve

Five years ago tonight I asked this beautiful woman to marry me. I still have no idea why she said yes. But I'll take it and run. I must have got her at a weak moment. ;-) Sharon is one of those people.....The only word I can think of is amazing. We went for an evening walk tonight. Just like when I proposed to her. On a clear cold snow covered evening.

Now we have the termite aka Ruby. She is opening her Christmas eve present here. It was socks but she liked the paper more. This little girl has taught me more about life and what is really important than I have learned in 40 years. Sharon and Ruby are the best things to ever happen to me. These two are what I am so thankful this Christmas.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy Merry Christmas.

Still alive

    Ruby is growing like crazy. She ishelpedt amazing. We are getting her figured, we think. The dogs are doing  with her in the house. The sure like to smell her. Ruby and I cuddling last night.
We are calving now. The storms really helped get the cows going. We are about half done now. Heres a heifer I had to help. She gave up, she stopped pushing. I got the chains out and gave one big pull and here the calf came.

Out feeding cake to cows yesterday and eating my lunch. Thought I'd share my BBQ chips.The girls weren't really into chips.
Untill next time take care

Waiting for baby

Our baby's due date was the 4th. Nothing has been happening. Guess we had to wait for the big storm to bring the baby. We came into the hospital this afternoon to get checked out and see how the baby is. We got here thinking it would be a quick check up. Find out Sharon is in early labor. So now we wait in the hospital as it snows outside. We are so excited about being parents. :-) until next time take care

We had date night. We just went to the Pizza Place in town last night. It was nice just to get out and talk. It will be the last time we do that as acouple, next time it will be a family of three.
I took a picture of our wedding picture.
Until next time take care

Baby Stuff

  Sharon has been busy making baby stuff lately. It's soooo cool to watch her take some fabric or yarn and create! She really is amazing!! And she is really modest about it. So here is a bunch of baby stuff. Sharon made the orange and green striped rattle and and friend of her's made the elephant. Not sure about the others.
Sharon made this quilt.
She knitted this little blanket/wrap.
My Mother-in-law and soon to be Grandmother made this really cool needle point.
This quilt is one Sharon did with a quilting bee block online. People did a bunch of the blocks then sent them to her. She sewed them together and now she is putting the backing on.
Sharon just came out and showed me the cover thats NOT quite done yet so I shouldnt have taken a picture of it. Its a cover for a Boppy. Its a  baby holder/ nursing deal.
She has made more stuff but has sent it to some of our friends that just had baby's.

Birthday/Baby shower

   Here's a self picture I took yesterday. This is what 40 looks like.
  Sharon had a really nice baby shower. They used the Skype deal so Sharon had a party in Long Beach with her Mom and friends there. Sharon had 8 people here. Sounds like they had a lot of fun! We hooked the computer to the TV so it was a big screen so everyone could see. Here's a great picture of Sharon opening gifts.
My Aunt made this great quilt for Wiggles.
Sharon's friend Jen made this quilt and stuffed toy.
 The baby shower cake.
We got lots of really cool baby stuff. Diapers and swaddles and onesies.
I took the men out with me and showed them some of the ranch. So the gals had the house to themselves without guys around. Until next time take care

Wedding Picture

  Ok see we had our wedding pictures taken but just never got them printed. Sharon found this place that prints them on canvas. I really like the way it turned out. Sorry the picture is kinda fuzzy.

  We have been cleaning up and going through stuff. We found these cross stitches that my Grandmother made for my Dad. It was kinda tough finding them. We will cherish them and display them. They say alot about our life.

Just goofing off here.
Until next time take care.

Snow day

  We had a pretty good snow storm blow through last night and lots of wind. So we have some pretty good snow drifts. I took this picture this morning feeding my horses.
 I took this one this afternoon. The drift is about three and a half feet tall.

This is our front yard, you can see the lenght of the drift. Sharon's car is kinda trapped next to the house because of the drift.
So we  stayed in today and enjoyed time together.

Great weekend

  This is just a quick blog update cause its late and I need to get to bed. But.... We had a GREAT weekend. I entered in my first ranch roping/3 man doctoring in Thermopolis. That was fun. I enter a picked team with a father and son. The other team I was on was a draw team.
 Here's a shot of El Gato with a calf on the line.
Then Sunday at the Chariot race's I outrode. After the chariots were done they had a outrider race. Heck yea!!! Any chance to go fast. El Gato and I placed 8th out of eight riders but we had fun.

It was so good to go home to Dubois for a visit. We stayed at my Aunt and Uncles home. They are the best people. On our way home we stopped by and visited Dad and Darwins graves.

30 Weeks

  I haven't really felt like blogging. I dont know why. I think just the winter blahhs. I'll have a couple ideas but by the time I get home just don't have the energy.
  Here's the baby's crib. I didn't think it was gonna be so HUGE! Its like a really nice peice of furniture. It went together really easy though. We still have it in the living room because not quite sure it will fit in our room yet.

Some of the blankets that we have for the baby. The one on the left is one my grandmother knitted. The other three are from Sharons Quilting/Knitting friends.. We have been getting baby presents from Sharons friends. We just got a cute washing towel/wrap.

I made this bridle today. It's not the best, but it will work good and it's on a bit I don't use that often. And the practice was nice. I'll do better on the next bridle I build.
Here's what I know you have been waiting for Sharon!! I think she looks great!! Just look at the glow she has. She is gonna be the best Mother a child could ever have.
