I've been tagged....

Stephanie tagged me a while ago and I am finally getting around to it. This picture is of Hans and I picking apples in my parents orchard. We had so much fun. Hans kept saying, "I love this Mom! This is so fun!" Even Christian wanted to start his own orchard. Hans looks so handsome in this picture (so much like Christian).

This is what you do:
Go to your pictures in the 4th folder Select the 4th picture and write about it.
I tag... Heidi, Sheryl, Misty, & Amee

Happy Birthday Hans!

I can't believe that Hans is already 5. This day seemed so far off 5 years ago when we started our little family. For his birthday, Hans wanted to help me make Spiderman Cupcakes. The only other request that he had was going to Kangaroo Zoo with his cousins Callin , Trey, Else, and Eliza. We decorated the house with Orange and Black Crepe Paper that Hans picked out and we made a big sign for him. Later that night we had Cupcakes and at Grandma and Grandpa Bronson's house with all the cousins. It was so fun being able to really spoil him for the day! We love you Hans!

Our house Before we fixed it up!

When we first found our house it hadn't been lived in for over a year and looked like a squatters paradise. After a lot of hard work and money we finally have it fixed up. The bathroom had mold and was completely gutted. The washer and dryer hookups were in the kitchen and are now downstairs. We have had this done for a while, but I thought it would be fun to post the pictures.

After the Remodel....

Here is our little country house. There are still a couple unfinished places (like my Pot rack to hang above the kitchen sink). But for the most part it is done!!

This Little Piggy....

Our Little Piglets were born on Feb. 13th. There are 10 of them. I never knew pigs could be so adorable. They are growing so fast. Whenever I go out to their pen they are all snuggled up together and look like the laziest happiest pigs!

My New Hair!

Fun Winter Days with Family!

It has been so fun having Stan and Amee living out here in Vernon with us and of course the boys love having their cousins close by too. The boys kept jumping on each others backs when they were going down the hill. It was so funny to watch.

Christiansen's Hog Heaven

We are full fledged Pig Farmers. We started out right before Christmas with the idea of just getting two pigs. Now here we are a little over a month later and we are up to 19! Yes, you heard me right. Somehow this pig business has fallen into our laps and expanded before our eyes. We specialize in Registered Purebread Berkshire pigs. Berkshire is the elite quality pork, usually you can only find it in resturants. So I will be putting together a special blog for our new family business. I will post a link when it is ready.

That Dreaded Manilla Envelope

I recieved that dreaded manilla envelope. Hans' Kindergarten registration papers came and I didn't know whether to cry or to cheer. He is so excited to go to kindergarten. He is already telling me that he can walk all by himself and that I don't have to pick him up from school either. . Hans has grown up so fast... So I will cherish the time that I get to have him home with me all day long. I love you Hans!
