365 Days of One Mountain

February 26, 2007
And I have a confession to make! I missed taking one on Wednesday! We took the boys for checkups, and went to a far away town for groceries and paint. When I finally remembered to take a picture it was dark, and the moon was not very bright. So I guess I have to fix my long as I am able and here I will take a picture (oh and if I remember!!!) ha ha ha

These pictures are also special because tomorrow these cows will be gone.


Forever In Blue Jeans

Helping Chris clean calving sheds, and reading to the boys! Hazy is snuggling my "sunkist" shirt (as Chris calls it), and I love the expression on Fishy's face. He looks like Elvis! :)

365 Days of One Mountain

The view from my house is of One Lovely Ever Changing Mountain.
Thus the reason for this post...
I'm going to take 365 pictures of the same mountain. I may not post them everyday, but I promise to write the date of when I took the picture. I think this may be a very fun adventure, and one that I will not regret!

A Normal Day...

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want, more than all the world, your return.-Mary Jean Irion
I love this quote, and want to read it over and over!!!
Sometimes a simple quote like this can inspire so much creativity and poignancy in my life. I hope it does the same for whoever takes a peek at my blog. :)

Right out of the bath after a muddy, wonderful time under the deck! Ahhhhh there is nothing better when you are a little boy!

Fly Catchers, Shirt Stealers, and my CAR

Hazy stole my Sunday shirt, and took it around the house with him for awhile to snuggle.

Fischer and Hazen have become pretty good at using Mom's napkins to kill flies.

Can you tell that I am a mother, diet sunkist drinker, and ranchwife in these pictures???

Scrapbooking, magical cups and pink cheeks!

A new layout that I have wanted to do for a long time!!!

Don't you just love his pink cheeks in this picture???

I took my sleepy head off of my pillow last night, and grabbed my camera. After a lively, exhausting day wiping my floor for the 100th time, potty training, keeping my second son out of my plant dirt, closing cupboard doors, listening to pot lids skid across the tile, saving the flusher on the toilet, saving my febreeze can from being emptied in the bathroom, saving the toilet paper (does anyone else always have to look for the TP because they have put it up so their little one does not unroll/stick it in the toilet?) closing the bathroom door for the 100th time, emptying my dishwasher, loading my washer, and emptying trashcans...did I mention I had to save my salt and pepper shaker from utter destruction?!?
Sorry I am rambling...(Tired seems to be an understatment these days)!
After a lively, exhausting day Chris and I enjoyed some Sleepy Time Tea together. It was wonderful, and then after our time together we placed our cups near one another without even thinking about it! I love it when I find photo opportunities in such simple everyday magical moments!

What a lovely end to a lively day...

Mom is in the picture!

Here are Mom's blue crocs...

I'm reading to my boys and cousin Chet in this picture!

Something Funny, Something True, and Just Normal Mom Stuff

To this!!!!

When I turn my back the mess goes from this

I love this book for so many reasons. I am sure all you mothers can understand this.

Does anyone else think this picture is hilarious??? :)

I gave Hazen and Fischer a much needed haircut today.

Fischer has been helping Dad calve our heifers.

I thought this was a cool picture of all of our Work Shoes!!!

This was the scene outside of our house yesterday evening...

Valentine's Day Company and a wonderful lunch on Sunday!

My newest layout...

I had to include this picture. I love how they decided to sit on the table when it was upside down!

Reading to the boys...
We had to show Chet some of our favorite books.

Sitting on Daddy's saddle...

All dressed up to play in the snow together.

The kids all had fun playing together on Sunday. It was great to have Dorlene for lunch too.

Our Yummy Sunday lunch...

Getting ready for Sunday Lunch...

Renee made some chocolate covered strawberries for Valentine's Dinner on Saturday.

My Valentine's Decorations...
Thanks to all of the cousins for Valentine's Cards. The boys loved them!

You just have to LOVE OWLS!

There is a Heart Sticker in Hazy J's hair. He was helping brother make Valentine's, and he must have lost track of one of his stickers. :)
