We moved to the farm!

It's been a busy summer and fall for us. We sold our house, had an auction where we had lived for 30 years, moved to our farm, totally remodeled our new house, (it's almost done) oh sure, I keep finding more things I want done. Our new house, we call it the farm house but it's not really an old farm house but a ranch house on a full basement that I needed to put my own touch on. When you look off the front porch all you see is land and cattle. We are at the back of the farm so our only neighbors are the cattle. We haven't moved the sheep but we are working on that. I miss seeing them in the field everyday so hopefully we will get them out here soon. This is my husband Richard's family farm where he grew up. It's a total of 600 acres, 200 hundred of it ours. Now that we have moved here the whole family lives here. There are about 100 cattle here that we all take care of. We love it here and I am loving this house as it becomes our home. I will post pictures soon as the decorating is about to begin, so until then here are some pictures of the farm.

New Project

I bought this little wood dome at the flea market for $1.00 a few weeks ago and this little pair of shoes for $1.50, painted it, sanded it a little, printed out this french saying in reverse, decoupaged it on, sanded a little more, and waxed it. Isn't it cute???

Baby Harriett has arrived! Loving Farm Life

Big O had another beautiful baby. We named her Harriett because she has a H on her side.

A sad time for our family.

This is a post I have been dreading. They tell us within minutes, hours, or a few days my Mother In Law, Hazel Aaron will leave this world and enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. She will walk through those gates into the waiting arms of our Almighty God. Her and my Father In Law have been married almost 72 years and he loves her so much, we all do. She has been the best Mother In Law or "Mother" to me that any woman could have. She always has a smile and encouraging words for us, never complains although she has been in pain for so long with her arthritis you would never know she is hurting. Her family is her greatest joy and we will all miss her so much. We all love you Hazel and it is time for us not to be selfish and let you fly. We have all learned so much from you. I have a wonderful, caring, and loving husband who you taught how to treat a woman he loves and it is all because of you. We will meet again one day if I can be half the woman you are.
Love You, Deena

Another new girl and I get to play with this one.

Cinnamon has a new cousin to play with but she got on the other side of the hot wire and we had to help her get back to her Mom. Richard got her started but she got side tracked so I went to help. The pictures you don't see are the ones of me on  the ground. She was stronger than she looked or maybe I'm not as strong as I think I am. Anyway she finally gets back with her Mom but was a little confused. After trying to suck everyone and anyone she finally gets it right. I think I will name her Ginger. Hey. I got the Spice Girls going on here.
