The Way My Hubby Does Fencing

A Country Wifes Way of Fencing

Yesterday I went to feed the pigs and saw that our Boar knocked down the fence in between the two pens. I didn't want Christian to have to worry about it when he got home, So I poured them some grain to keep them busy and nailed away at the fence. I know this is a bit overboard...but I had some motivation.

My Motivation....

This is Dozer he is our 750 lb. Boar. I am scared to death of him. This is the reason I fixed the fence the way I did.

My Little Pig Farmers

I had Hans and Dane help me feed the pigs this morning and I let them get in with the little ones. They loved it. Hans asked me if being a pig farmer meant that you fed them and petted them. I said yes. After that he kept saying that he loves being a pig farmer.

Our Afternoons

Yeah! The snow is back. My kids love to go to the park and tube down the hill. This kept us very busy last year.

Our New Pet... Ok not really

This Praying Mantis was out to get us one day. I was watering the horses when Hans yelled Mom there is a huge bug on Dane. I looked and sure enough there was this Praying Mantis on Dane's Back. Of course Dane started screaming, crying, and running around in circles, but I was on the other side of the fence and couldn't help him. Finally he got it off. Dane was hysterical. I had to run around the fence and calm him down. I explained to Hans and Dane that it was just a bug and that they didn't have to be scared of him. Then we went back into the house. About 10 min. later I was making lunch and had my back turned to Hans. Hans yelled, "Mom the Praying Mantis is on your back." Of course I started yelling and jumping around trying to get him off. After a long battle he fell to the ground and I was victorious. Then Hans reminded me that he was just a bug and that I shouldn't be so scared. It seems like I have to eat my own words alot with a 4 year old.

My Photographers

One day I was out moving pipe for a neighbor and I left my boys in the car. They got my camera out of my purse and took about 30 pictures of each other. Here are a few.

Runaway Kitten

I just can't figure out why our kitten ran away? (Are you feeling my sarcasm). We did find him a few days ago and he has adopted a new family. We miss you Oreo.

A Child's Prayer

I asked Dane to say the blessing on the food for lunch today and he prayed that our baby could come out. Hans and him are both so excited for our new baby.

A Nutty Morning!

I woke up this morning to the sound of a crack followed by a chomping and then Hans saying mmmmm! This continued to go on for a few minutes then Hans ran into my room and said, "look Mom, I found a puzzle nut." I asked him what he was up to and he told me he was cracking nuts for breakfast.

Best Buddies

My Apple Pickers!

We went to my parents house a few times to help them pick apples. We really did have a fun time. Hans and Dane loved being up on the ladders and knowing that they were really helping. Hans kept saying, "This is the funnest thing I've ever done. I love picking apples." Even Christian was talking about putting in our own orchard. (My dad was pretty proud)

Happy Birthday Dane!

Dane Turned 3 on Halloween! He is getting so big. He got this little bike for his birthday. He was so excited for it.
When he was born we called him our little goblin.

Dane loves to play outside and follows Hans wherever he goes.
He also loves: anything spiderman, helping me in the kitchen, trains, all animals especially cats and dogs, Riding our pony, playing legos, and fixing things.
When Christian is home Dane will not leave his side, even if he is working outside in the cold.

Dane you are the sweetest little boy.
We love you! Happy Birthday!

And Baby Makes 5...

We have been really excited for a new baby at our house. I am only 8 weeks along, but I can never wait to tell people. I figured if both our families know then we might as well post it on our blog. So it is official I am due in June.

Here is a look at what we have been up to!

I have been a slacker... My sisters keep telling me to get with it and update my blog, so here you go.
For most the month of October we have been hunting. Christian drew out for the mozzaloader hunt, but we couldn't find anything. Hans and Dane loved every second of it and hiked all over the place with us.
Christian's family came out to our house for the week of the Rifle hunt. Stan and Niels each got a deer! Yeah!

My deer!

I did not draw out this year, but our neighbor gave me one of his permits to shoot a doe on his land. So we walked across the street and waited in the alfalfa fields until a deer popped up on top of a hill and I shot it at about 160 yards. It was the coolest thing ever. I was kind of nervous about shooting bambi, but I was able to do it.
Christian was pretty proud that his wife could get a deer and he was nice enough to gut it for me. What a guy!

Butterfly Kisses.....

These boys are always catching bugs. Hans spends hours a day catching grasshoppers, butterflies, flys, moths, and anything else that he can find. We constantly have a mason jar on the counter top with some kind of new discovery in it. Oh the joy of having little boys!

What is all the Hype About?

I have been wondering for the last little while, "What is all the hype about Stephanie Meyer's books?" All the while I have been getting a hard time from sister in laws and anyone else who found out that I haven't read them. Whenever I saw someone put it on their blog I thought how trendy. Well Heidi let me borrow Twilight and I started reading it.... In fact I can't put it down and now I constantly think about Edward. So thanks Heidi and I just want to say I have joined the Bandwagon.

The Catch of the Day!

For Family Night last week we went to our reservoir and went fishing. We were about to go home and I told Christian, "just a few more casts." So of course on the last one I caught a fish and let the boys pull it in. They were so excited. We caught a good size brown then we went home and ate it.

My Sunshine

I was passing by the bathroom and found Hans like this. He is such a goof. I just love him. I call him my little Sunshine, because he is almost always happy and making me laugh.
