Lucy's Legacy

Merry (belated) Christmas everyone!

We all had a great Christmas. Nana and Papa were able to be here and are having a good visit. Today we took a trip to Houston to see "Lucy's Legacy" at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. For those of you not familiar with Lucy, Lucy is a 3.2 million year old fossil of a pre-human called Australopithecus afarensis which was found in Ethiopia in 1974.

Check her out:

Girl Scout Camping

Remember that your children are not your own, but are lent to you by the Creator.

- Mohawk Proverb

Last month Callan and I went camping with her Girl Scout troop to Camp Robinwood near Conroe. The theme for the campout was Native American culture. We had such a great time learning about how they lived and their customs. We learned to make Indian fry bread, hair drops, and learned a few native dances.

New Babies on the Farm...

We have had a busy month with the animals. Dalton's pig "Sassy" had 12 babies, but 2 died so we are left with 10. Callan's goat "Frosty" had twins today. Today we also adopted 2 bobtail kittens. You can never have too many animals ( :


Here's Sassy with her babies. Aren't they cute!________________________________________________________

Here's Frosty with Twin Boy and Twin Girl (Callan hasn't named them yet).


And last but not least, Chloe (left) and Lucy (right).

WalMart - Phase 2 $4 Prescription Drugs

WalMart has added more medications to their $4 Rx Plan. Check it out at the link below. Maybe more companies will follow suit and force a decrease in the cost of medications in the U.S. I hope this saves you all some $$$$.

Callan's Photography

Callan has taken a liking to photography. She took this picture in front of our house and will enter it in the 4H photography show. We planted butterfly mix seeds and the butterflies truly love them.

This video makes you appreciate all the Moms in the world. Enjoy.

Evolution of Dance

This is hilarious!


Hello everyone! I thought I would get with the times and start a blog to share everything that is going on in our lives with friends and family. We are all very busy! Dalton started football (his first year) and is busy raising pigs for 4H. Callan is staying busy with gymnastics, dance, Girl Scouts and 4H. Al is busy doing jobs around the house and running the kids everywhere. I am busy working in the Newborn Nursery, still working on my Master's in Nursing, and toting the kids places. This first posting may be somewhat long so I can get you all up to speed with our busy lives.

Here is Dalton playing his first football game (#26). He plays Fullback on the defense and loves it.

Last weekend Callan and I met Nana & Papa in Port Aransas. The weather was great except for the occasional rain storm. Al and Dalton did not come with us because one of Dalton's pigs was due to have babies and they wanted to stay and make sure mom and babies were OK ; however, she did not have her babies.
