The boys got to tell Santa what they wanted at our ward Christmas party. Heres Baby Boots trying to look around. (4 months old)
John Wayne (2 years old) was really scared to sit with Santa. But he did it after all his brothers did.

Of course Jr. Red (4 years old) was the first to sit on his lap. Need I say more?...

T. T. (6 years old) was second to see Santa. I think they all told him that they wanted Transformers for Christmas. Its funny cause they have Transformers already...

I am so greatful expecially this year for our warm home. On Monday our breaker poped, so MyLove turuned it back on and we heard a huge pop in the kitchen. We looked where it came from and one of the outlets was extremely HOT! So we fliped the breaker back off and let the outlet cool off. A litte later MyLove unscrewed the outlet and found it had been toasted! Luckly out house didn't start on fire. That is one of the main causes for house fires. So we changed that one a checked a few others for faults. I dont want to ask Santa for a new house this year!

The Herd or should I say Flock?

Heres Peanut and her 2 babies. Along with Sweet Cream down by the fence.
This picture is my prime milker, Ginger. Shes the best goat that we have. Eventhough she has horns, she is so gentle and loves to be pet by the kids.

This is Ginger and the baby she had this year, Zena. MyLoves dad loves the baby cause she so nice like her mom. She also is the only goat that the horses like. She can play and eat right under their bellies.

Here is Sweet Cream, the goat Brooke raised, and the 2 other white babies Peanut had this year.
The babies got named by the neighbors, Mike and Mary. But I prefer not to name ones that we will butcher. Goat meat is one of the healthest red meat you can eat. So is goat milk. It truely saved John Wayne, from his asthma. He loves warm, "freshly squeezed" milk now.

Back in the back is the seventh goat we had pastured out in Vernon. She is a pigmy goat that MyLoves cousin gave to us. Since she is so little all the other goats pick on her. So we will sell her soon for someone else to enjoy.

3 months

Heres Baby Boots at 3 months. He is sitll a good boy, thanks goodness, we don't need another thing to go crazy about. He always has his eyes wide and alert and doesn't miss a thing. Just wish he would grow some hair, he he. He still so darn cute!

Cookie Monster

John Wayne decided he wanted to help me make cookies. I tried a couple times to help him stir it and he said, "No! Me do it me self!" Ok, he still loved helping and did a great job.

John Wayne

Ok, I know all boys seem to go through a "cowboy" stage, but I think my John Wayne hit the hardest out of my boys.
He got ready for church, put his spurs on his boots and proceeded out the door. "Uh, John Wayne, I dont think Jesus wants us to wear spurs at church." I told him. Oh my goodness! That was the fight of the week. And finally we got him convinced that when he comes home he can put them back on. He was later fine with that.
So the next day I took these pictures of him and it seemed to satisfy him for a little bit seeing himself on the camera.

Big Man in a Little Body

Heres my sweet baby. The boys found this hat for him and I just had to take a picture. He looks so much like his older brothers. When he was born he looked more like Jr. Red, now I think he is favoring towards T.T. more.

Diaper Cake

This is the diaper cake I made for Whittney Solomon. I wanted to make a "John Deere" theme but the ribbon selection here in Taylor is pathetic. So this is what it ended up like. "Country Sunflower" theme don't you think?
There is a huge baby wash inside it and little lotions and washes, pacifiers, and diaper cream that I stuck on it also. Hope she likes it...

Outstanding Citizenship Award!

T.T. was choosen from his kindergarten class to recieve the Outstanding Citizenship Award!

He looks really thirlled...doesn't he?

He was supposed to go up infront of the whole school when his name was called and stand by his principle with the other kids. It was really hard for him at first cause he is extremely shy but he did it!

Heres a shot from behind him looking at the other students.

Happy Birthday T.T.!

Heres Jr.Red and John Wayne eating Birthday cake!

T.T. turned 6 on September 19th. We are so proud of him! He is such a good boy!

Apache Co. Fair

At the fair there was a booth with this race car. It was to show the effects of drunk driving. So MyLove wanted to try.
MyLove put on these silly glassed that distorted his vision and had to drive on this video game. He was doing good around 15 mph so we told him to go faster. He his around 70 mph and went all over the road then eventually crashed. Good thing he doesn't drink!

To make sure the kids didn't run away we had them hold each others hands. Here is JohnWayne, Kessie (cousin), and Jr.Red. Aren't they cute?

Here's the boys in James Blacksmithing trailer he had at the fair. Of course Jr.Red is looking for something to get into...
