Brrr...we have a white blanket everywhere around here. Early Thursday morning it began an ice storm here and then it turned into a snow storm. So we have been out runnin around checking all the cattle to make sure they stayed home and keep feeding them hay. The past couple days we've been driving the tractor around because the roads are drifted and there is no way we could make it in a pickup. Thankfully we have our little green tractor to get us around to everywhere. Today we borrowed a big green tractor with a blade so we could make our own roads and be able to travel by pickup. It was really cool how much snow we could move. Justin really enjoyed that job.
I wish I would have got a picture of it actually moving the snow.
We are definitely getting tired of the cold and snow even though it is going to be really good for all our wheat. Now Gringo on the other hand...LOVES the snow! He loves to jump, run, lay, dig, stuff his face in it, eat, lick, and just about anything else you can do in the snow. He just plays and plays in it! We think he would like there to be snow 365 days of the year. Sorry Griengo, we're not moving to Anartica for you though!
Last weekend Justin went to a calf roping in Lubbock and won a little bit of money. He did really good he caught and tied all his calves.
Sorry the lighting was horrible in that barn.
Justin's friend Tyrell went and roped too. So Justin and Tyrell had their biggest fans there me, Lexi, and Griengo and Emily and Boone(Tyrell's family). Griengo was not a fan at first until he made friends with this little girl there that just loved him and from then on he just loved it. It was so cute this little girl was hugging him and giving him kisses. It was just adorable. I wish I would have got a picture. Griengo got to hang out with his BFF, Boone, which is Emily's little toy Aussie puppy. He is so tiny compared to Griengo. Griengo and Boone checking out the competition.
Sorry Lexi we didn't get a picture of all three of you.
Update on Griengo: He has now learned to hike is leg. We were so proud of him at first...but, now hikes on everything and he is not very good at it yet, he's still figuring it out. But if there is any big weed or tire close by he is definitely going to attempt to pee on it. Not too much else has been going on in our lives except I've started school back for the semester which seems like its going to be a long semester. But I just keep reminding myself only one more year...


  1. I guess I will keep up with you on your blog (since I dont see you anymore!) Bruce has got to see you guys, but it has been forever since Ive seen you!(we have texted, but that does'nt count) Ive got to come over sometime to see what all you have done to the house. I know you guys have been super busy. You know you guys are welcome to stop by anytime.
    Love your updates on the blog. Bruce said our dogs were having fun with Griengo when you guys come by on the tractor the other day. (I did not know you were out there, or I would have come out and said hi!)

  2. I'm so jealous of all of the snow you guys are getting! Sorry you had to start back to school--hopefully this year will fly by for you!
