New additions

Let me start by saying we survived Christmas.  I'm not sure exactly how, but we did.  Piper and the puppy are both 7 months old now and learning together.  It has been interesting to say the least and I cannot wait to get a fence in around my back yard so I can quit tying up the puppy during the day.

It would actually have to quit snowing some day for that to happen.  Yes, it has still been snowing here, BLAH!  In fact, my daughter's soccer game was canceled today because there is still snow on the field.

So everyone knows, I am a Grandma now!  What a year!  We have a new grand daughter born in December, Lynlee.  She is a doll, and I wish I could see her more often.  They are so far away!

This picture was from in January.  Isn't she adorable?!?!?!  Who could resist this?

This is Jessie, Sydney and Lynlee at Christmas.  We did not get to see them then, but we did get to visit them in January at Sydney's in-laws to see the new grandbaby.

It's been too long, time to see them again!

So we have been busy, busy.  The new house is nice.  Our yard is ghetto disaster!  Can't do much about it until spring actually decides to show up and stick around.  I'm very anxious for that because I cannot stand the ghetto mess right now, it's driving my OCD insane!  Mark knows it too, and I think he gets a kick out of watching me squirm.

So, hope all is well in your neck of the woods. 

Keep smilin'!  :)

Ok here is the long and short of it.

First of all, we had this little sweet heart August 16th.  She is the happiest baby I've ever seen, except when she isn't.  Well, you know what I mean.

Then in October my husband, yes MY HUSBAND, added this to our lot.  My life has been flipped on it's head!

Hailey has had a birthday and is now 10!  Yep, you heard me right, 10!!!

Grandma moved in across the street the beginning of November.  That is actually a picture of her with Liliah (my great niece) when she was a baby.

To top the year off we will be receiving a new house December 21st.  YES, RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!!  Um, needless to say I am NOT decorating for Christmas this year and hopefully we will survive the holidays this year without killing each other.

No, I'm serious, it will probably be our little Christmas miracle if we all survive unscathed!

If I don't make it back here before then, Happy Holidays!!!

P.S.  Did I tell you my computer crashed?  Haven't replaced it yet.....

So I've been holding out on all of you, my blogging friends.  Do you know how things kind-of snow ball and next thing you know it has been months since you blogged?

Top that off with being exhausted and sick for about 4 months and, well, motivation was not real high.  So here is the incredible news.  I'm pregnant!  Holy Crap!  We were not planning it, or trying, or talking about it, or thinking about it, or, or, or, or, well.......anyway I am.

As someone told me, I'm not sure who as I have been in a daze for a few months, babbling incoherently, with utterances of baby leaving my lips here and there.  Anyway, as someone said to me, "Everything happens for a reason, even if we do not know that reason".  Huh!

Here is a 3-D shot of new baby Lemerond.
Well I can tell you I do NOT know the reason, but we are riding the wave.  Of course, because evidently some where along the line I got old, I am considered a high risk pregnancy.  So this means more doctors visits, tests, blood being drained from my body like I'm secretly supplying a vampire colony somewhere.  OK, maybe that last bit was a slight exaggeration.  Or not.

Then........we recently found out that not only is my niece pregnant again (due in October)......but my stepdaughter is pregnant also (due in December)!  WOW!!!!  We are dropping babies here like nobodies business!

This means that Mark and I will become new parents (in August), then great Aunt/Uncles again in October and THEN.....(drum roll please).......GRANDPARENTS in December!!!  WTH?!

Our family is so hodge podge and weird, you have to love it!

So, I feel old with this pregnancy.  The nausea has pretty much gone away, but I am very tired and so SORE!  It's another large baby.  Already 4.5cm head and 14oz at 20 weeks.  I am now 21 weeks along this week. 

What I want to know is where do the big a** babies come from?!  No one else in my family has these huge babies!  They all have nice little 6 and 7 pound babies!  Not me though, nooooooo, mine have to be 9lbs and head the size of watermelons!  You laugh, but my daughter's head was 15cm, a woman dilates to 10cm, you do the math!  OK, so maybe I'm a little jealous.  Rant over.  For now.

Daisy, you couldn't have said it better, this is exactly how I feel!!!

OK, so process, discuss, comment, do what you do.....

I'll be back again,

I'm still alive...

So since we last spoke we got horses moved from South Dakota, and my Mom moved from South Dakota.  It is great having her closer, I see her a minimum of once a month now, usually two.

If it is not too blizzardy out, that is......

I got to go riding a few times before it got cold...........

Rebel was excited to explore his new digs too.......

All in all, the boys were excited to be in a new place,

I think they like a little adventure too.  Don't you?

I love this photo from Mom's move...

It was warm...believe it or not both those trailers are half full. 

We spent Christmas at my Mom's new house to sart some new warm memories for her there.  Sometimes starting over is not easy.  We had a nice quiet holiday, watching movies, eating, and sharing wonderful gifts!

Hope your hoildays were also wonderful!

RIP Coco Bean

Coco Bean died during the night last night of old age.  He was about 33 years old (which is very old for a horse). 

He made it back to Montana and was happy as a clam.  Our family owned him for 21 years of his life.  He was a treasured member of our family, and we will miss him dearly.

Love you Coco!
