New this week

This week we began shipping wheat pasture cattle. Monday we shipped 2 loads and on Wednesday we shipped 3 loads. Justin also began plowing this week getting ready to plant some oats. So needless to say Justin has been super busy this week!...and I have got off the hook since I have school three days a week, but I'm sure there will be more opportunities for me to help out in the future on days I do not have school.
Some of our favorite bunch that went to their new home on Wednesday.

They were rolly poleys.

Justin plowing. Just barely dry enough.

Don't worry I didn't forget about Griengo! He likes being a back seat passenger!

He's only cute and innocent until he gets a hold of his toys and then they are destroyed. I bought him 3 new toys the other day that had no stuffing whatsoever in them and looked pretty durable. Within 2 hours all three of them had something wrong with them if they were not already torn in pieces ugh! So now he just gets to play with his pieces of toys and the couple old ones that have managed to survive.

I have a model for a sister...

So recently I have been doing a lot of artsy crafty type things. I have been sewing, scrapbooking, and picture taking. The big project of mine was taking my sister's senior pictures a couple days ago. We had a lot of fun and I really enjoyed taking these pictures. She is like a model. She does anything you tell her to. She'll pose just right. Can go from smile to serious face in no time. This was always the hardest thing for me to do when I took my senior pictures. Its hard enough for me to do a serious face in the first place not even on top of someone telling me to do it on command. I also always felt like I looked all dumb. I didn't know what to do with my hands. She is the opposite and that's a good thing. So I thought I would share some of my favorites that we took. It was hard to pick so few but I managed.
This is my very favorite I think.
She talked me into letting her wear he cute little dress with hot pink rain boots and at the time I was trying to talk her out of it but I really think these turned out to be some super cute and fun pictures after all. I had to put my name on here to make me feel like a pro.

We had a wonderful Valentine's weekend. I have the best husband in the world. He bought me flowers first of all, which I had never gotten flowers before in my life so that was very special and sweet. Then on top of that he took me skiing in Ruidoso and was super patient with me because that was my first time to go skiing and I was not the best at it. I fell quite a bit actually a LOT a bit. By the end of the day or actually just by the afternoon we were both so tired and worn out we were ready to come home.

My beautiful flowers

Griengo was pretty excited to go to Ruidoso with us and was bummed out he didn't get to go skiing with us.

Goodbye white...

Since the weather has been cold, snowy, and muddy here for the past couple weeks there has not been much I have wanted to do outside so that means it was time to clean the house. Well I can only clean so much before I get sick of it. So I finished painting our house. I had already painted our kitchen, office, and guest room but still desperately needed to paint the living room and our bedroom. When we moved in to this house every single wall in the house was white but not for long. I painted our living room a burnt orange color called "Burled Redwood" but it looks burnt orange to me. Our bedroom that I just got finished with, I painted like a denim blue called "Thunderhead". I'm telling you the colors because my camera doesn't take the best indoor pictures and who knows what colors they are going to look like on there. So now I only like painting our bathroom and laundry room. I was going to start on the bathroom today which is going to be a light yellow/goldish/creamy color, but maybe Thursday I will instead.
The blue really isn't that dark or purpley but that the best my camera took. Sorry
