The county guy in his payloader calling it a day!
Chris had to use the snowmobile on Wednesday to move the heifers because the road leading to the heifers had gotten so bad. The guys had to use the cat Monday and Tuesday to break tracks for the tractor. The county guy tried for an hour yesterday with his payloader to open it, so that Gerry could drive his tractor down to lead the heifers towards the cows, but then gave up because it was so bad! Luckily, Chris was able to use the snowmobile to move the heifers far enough that then Gerry could lead them the rest of the way to the cows.
This video was taken Tuesday (January 29).
And now everybody knows why we are hermits! :) It is not by choice, believe me!!! We would have loved to have Aaron, Candy and Mia out on Sunday but it was too terrible. And we would have loved to go to Dante's birthday on Saturday. I just cannot leave my house. Okay Okay maybe I have cabin fever a bit! :)
There are some good things to being snowed in:
I have organized and reorganized my house.
My boys get undivided attention because we don't have internet at the house right now either. They sure enjoy all of the mommy attention.
And I get lots of laundry and dishes done!!! I have to do something. Oh and Fish and I finished all of our thank yous for his birthday. Hopefully I can get to the post office soon to send them.
A picture a couple of hours later on Monday morning...
It is crazy because there is blue sky, but just a terrible ground blizzard. We only have had snow on Monday (January 28) and Wednesday (January 30), but the wind just keeps blowing.
And when the wind blows it means terrible ground blizzards and huge drifts!
This was the scene outside of our house on Monday (January 28) evening! The wind started blowing on Friday (January 25) and has not stopped since, except for a short lull on Sunday afternoon. That was the last time I was able to leave my house until today! And even then, we had to walk out to the county road because the road to our house is impassable.
My best friend Jen called me during this terrible storm to inform me that she was stuck at Walcott with about 30 other cars waiting for the county to open the highway. You can imagine I was very scared and worried. She was able to make it home, but it took her six and a half hours to make it home. It usually takes her about an hour and a half!
He now wishes us "sweet dreams" before we go to bed!
A few mornings ago he told me to "take a picture of the pretty sunrise."
Fischer gets "stuck in the snow" all the time with his trucks. I wonder where he gets that idea from...:)
Last night he told "Clayt" (Clayton our hired hand) "bye bye see ya love you."
A few days ago, I found him loading his baler full of goldfish to feed his cows upstairs. He then informed me that he was feeding "hay goldfish to the cows in the tractor."
Our nurse practitioner Marcie said that had never happened in all of her years of working with kids. Chris held him while I took Fish out of the room. Chris just kept making faces at him, and he would grimace when she poked him, and then would keep trying to smile at Daddy. This just goes to show Hazy J's temperment. He is so easy going and happy. He weighed 17 pounds 7 ounces, and is doing great!!!
Fischer Lee also had a two year check up. He now weighs 29 and a 1/2 pounds. He is in the 80th percentile for two year olds. This is great considering his slow start. Marcie kept saying that he was so stocky! He doesn't look like a preemie anymore. :)
Hazy J trying hard to sit up!
Fischer has been busy "cookin" for Daddy lately. He puts rotel cans and diet sunkist popcans in my roaster oven, and cooks them for lunch. Then he takes them out of the oven, and sets them on the table.

I think he falls daily! He seems to heal up from one injury, and then the very next day he falls and usually gets a bruise!!! ugh
Brooklyn and Fischer had to wear their carharts together.
