How are ya'll?  I really am wanting to start blogging more consistently.  I miss you all.  How can it already be almost February.  Steve and I had our 25th anniversary on January 9th, but due to a beautiful family wedding in Texas (my neice) and over two weeks of sicknesses we still have not "celebrated".  We received enough gift money to stay in a cabin in Estes Park, Colorado.  Hopefully by the end of February we can go.  

Steve turned 50 on the 28th, and the children and I had a wonderful surprise for him.  Jace and Karlie flew in from Fort Worth to surprise him, and boy was he surprised ... there were even a few happy tears.  His family also came down from Denver, so we had a wonderful, fun weekend.

I have been totally obsessed with fibers to spin lately.  Last week the children and I had the joy of taking care of some Alpaca's for a local rancher.  It was really fun, and I "adopted" my first fiber animals - two English Angora Rabbits.  

I can hardly wait to spin me some Angora fiber. 

My camera is broken - sadly it will cost quite a bit to fix it.  One day it was working, and the next - not.  The camera guys say that "this" just happens with these older models. 

Also, the dishwasher is broke.  Boy, do we miss that sucker!  One meal for a family of 14 creates quite a mess. 

Would you please pray for Dandy ... tomorrow morning he will be having surgery to replace his knee.  A whole lot of fun and trying to keep up with Gommy finally wore the thing out.  

Well, that's all for now.  Talk to you again soon.


  1. Always good to hear from you!

    Happy Birthday, Steve. I celebrated my 51st on the 24th. :) So fun to surprised him with a visit from the Big Kids.
