Snow-time Fun on Christmas Day!

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, but I just haven't been that ambitious. Plus, our computer crashed upstairs, to I've had to deal with my laptop downstairs, and it runs on Vista. Not so fun for me. I do have other things to post, though, like our Christmas pageant fun, and being snowed in (not really, but I'm REALLY tired of shoveling!) I can't post pictures from our 2nd Annual Chick Run, because our friends with the chickens had them slaughtered before we could do it. Dangit! Maybe next year she'll wait for us to have our chicken ya Jane!

Anywho, on Christmas day, we took the boys out to the sand dunes and went sledding/tubing. It was a lot of fun. Of course, I first had to be a dork, and put the gator (that goes around the neck) on my head, and have Doane take a picture. I also took a picture of Dean running up to the top of the hill.

Here are some shots of the boys on the sled and the tube.

Me, being the genius that I am, decided to take the sled down face first, and this is the product of that poorly-thought-out idea. Can you see the grit on my face from my run, plus my plow into a snow drift at the end? It was great! But I wanted to do it again, you betcha! The second shot shows how covered my shirt got from that run.

Following are pictures of us enjoying our ride on the innertube, being pulled behind Doane's truck, although the first shot is Doane getting it set up.

After our fun in the cold snow, we all piled back into the truck. But we couldn't pass up a chance for another photo op!

Another Christmas spent far away from our family, but we made the best of it! On a sad note, as Dean and I were riding on the innertube, Doane drove over a rock, and popped the innertube. And we're not just talking a small hole that you can put a patch on it, and it's all good. This hole was huge! Dangit, dangit, dangit!

3 Down, 2 to Go!

I have a schnoodle puppy update, for all my faithful followers - I've sold 3 of the 5 schnoodles! Unfortunately, the first to go was my favorite little girl, that I named "Midge". She is the runt of the litter, and she's just adorable!

Here she is.....

And here's the little boy we sold, to the same person as the girl. He's one of the biggest, competing with a black sister.

And we sold the smallest black girl today, to a nice lady. Here she is....

Here's a picture of the group altogether. They are all so adorable, but I will miss my little Midge. My only consolation, which may make it harder in the long run, is that we are keeping the two white ones until Christmas Eve. Strangely enough, the two people who have purchased my dogs are both getting one for their mother-in-law's, and they both live in Wenatchee. Crazy, I tell ya!

Jacob's 9th (YIKES!!) Birthday

It is pretty handy to have a husband that is talented at drawing and building and cooking and, and, and..... you get the idea. His latest creation, after Patrick's spectacular Transformer cake, is Jacob's Pokemon cake.

Our oldest child turned 9 this year, and the poor kid's birthday landed on a holiday. But we celebrated the day before, with a few friends and family - no, wait, we don't have ANY family up here - just us! But it was fun to have some of Jacob's friends over.

Here is Doane, slaving over his latest masterpiece....

And of course he had to add some detail to the sides, so it didn't have boring, plain sides!

Then Jacob opened presents, and had fun getting lots of toys and action figures...

One of Jacob's friends gave him a Nerf gun, which is cool, cuz we like those, but it you look at Patrick's reaction (on the right), it's hilarious!

And here's the gift the Jacob was most excited about - a box of Caprisuns! Hee-hee!

Oh, silly me, there was really a movie inside there - who did that?????? (Naughty parents!)

And the last shot I'll share is Jacob blowing out his candles. Look, you can see the smoke rising from the candles. Pretty cool!

Happy Birthday Jacob! We love you!

Which of the 5 Senses Are You?

You are the Sense of Sight

You are a very observant, detail oriented person.

You are able to take in a lot of information at once.

You often see things that other people never notice.

You have a good eye for design and aesthetics.

You love to be surrounded by beauty - natural or not.

When you imagine how something should look, you see it clearly in your mind.

I'm not too sure about having a good eye for design and all, or being surrounded by beauty (if you've seen the inside of my house, you know what I'm talking about, especially with disgusting puppy refuse on the floor!). The rest is okay, I guess.... If you want to take this quiz, go here.
