What Have I Been Up To

Oh how my life can get crazy is a hurry.

Halloween has come and gone, with the candy being gone I think in record time.  With hubby still in a cast it really lets you know what a relationship is made of that is for sure.

First of, the day of Halloween we weaned our calves and loaded them on the liners to take to the market.  The next morning Hubby, Roy and me all got ready and headed to the auction to watch our calves sale, this is a new family tradition since Roy was born.  Well this year I was finally not the only lady there with that made it so easy as my friend also brought her son whom is older then Roy but still plays and let's him hang around.

Then we had Roy's school photos which were quite interesting that is for sure.  But I can't wait to see his face.  As well I am also the school's scrapbooker so I really can't wait as I have started working on it with the Halloween I really can't wait to see what the parents say about it.

Next, I was approached by the preschool teacher to head up the Christmas Concert... Well that is not a little task but I took it on, I just keep saying "not for me but for my child" As I do quilting and curling for me.  So I have been working like a little be thinking and the making and figuring.  I have called in a few other mom's for assistance, our name - Santa's Little Helpers.

This has all been happening still while my Hubby has been in his cast - still non weight bearing - which means I am still nurse, made, EVERY thing.  It is wearing on me to say the least, but good news, we went to the Cast clinic on Friday and the cast is off Whoo Hoo.  But he got an air cast for the next month - but he can walk etc on it... But while in the house he does not have to wear it.  Hubby is getting EXTREMELY antsy.  Today he just said that tomorrow he is going to try and do chores, which will be nice for him to get back into the tractor, not so good for me, this means that I have to swing gates for him, our currently weather is -20 BRrrrrrrrrrrrr.  Hubby is still not all that happy as the Doctor won't let him ride for another 6 weeks.  Well that is OK as our weather is not nice for riding.

Now for some important blog stuff - SSCS - I have finished mine along time ago and just waiting for the 19 to come around to get it in the post...  Well, last minute I decided that I did not like my ornament that I made so I remade it and I actually like it so much better.  Now I am on the hunt for a box that will fit all gift to send to my new friend.

Till Next Time,

Halloween came and went, now we have a lot of CANDY to help Roy eat.  This is not a good temptation for a diabetic that is for sure.  For my little guy he got 2 huge bags full, and each stop hand a bag of candy for him not just a handful but an actual paper bag full of goodies.

Then we had a stray in our yard... Well not so much a stray but my son's pony decided that he did not want to be with the other horses and jumped the cattle guard or we are thinking that he jumped the cattle guard.  He then found his way down to our place where he stayed for some time.

Till Next Time,

Camping-Never too late to post

So at the end of August we went up to Rocky Mountain House for a friends Birthday and to help pull the Bulls - well hubby and Roy helped pull the bulls and I was just there for the party hehehe.  It has been a long time since I was last up to Rocky - Roy was about 6 months old.

There was a lot of riding -which my hubby did not bring my horse (very well broke) so I did not feel comfortable to ride someone else horse.  The boys were fishing and the big boys went for a drive to the other place to check things out, while the girls went for a ride.  Which left me, Roy and Uncle and a friend back at camp.

The Girls were great with Roy they would lead him around the campsite on a horse named Peaches.  He really enjoyed himself on the horse, at the campfire and just being there.

The mornings came early at my trailer, with a hubby that could not sleep and a son that woke up at the first light.  Thank goodness to Generators - we brought ours just so that I could have Coffee in the morning and just in case our trailer batter went dead.  It was just so peaceful in the morning having coffee and stitching away on my Raggedy and Friends (yes, I am still working on that).  Uncle was up early too as he had to run his Border Collies and such and make sure the horses were fine and such - as I am not that horses so I just try and stay clear, but will pet and such and occasionally get on one... But not this trip

Well this might have been my last trip of the season and it was a good one.
