Here you go...

a new coat of "paint" on the blog. Needed to get that Christmas decorating done.

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Incredibly crazy things have been going on in my life, and the blog took a back burner....in the very far back.

Thanksgiving was great. We went to the rez to the in-law's house, and we all had a great time just hanging out and being together. We didn't see the boys much as they had many "HQ's" to create and maintain. Apparently HQ stands for headquarters, and with the abundance of old cars, trucks, bulldozers, horse trailers, boats, etc., there were many places for HQs. Despite the cold, they were outdoors all day except when coming in to eat, drink, and use the bathroom. As we don't get very cold here in the valley of the sun, we don't own heavy coats. So, they layered. Six to seven layers. At least. Great times. Oh, and it was too cold so I didn't go out and take pictures of the HQs. Should have sent the camera out with them but didn't think about it until...now.

Jayne stayed inside except to go with her Grandpa Johnson, her Dad, and her auntie Mary to feed the cows (including a one-day old calf), the dogs, and the horses. She mostly spent her time annoying G-ma's cat, Marshmallow aka Tom. We were so surprised that she wasn't afraid of this cat. She is afraid of EVERY animal, but not Tom. She would hardly leave him alone, and he was half her size. He was just like Garfield...fat and lazy. We DID get a few pictures of him as Jayne found my camera in my purse and took a few. So, these are our only pictures of Thanksgiving weekend. No gorgeous table setting with yummy food. No family group shots. No putting up Christmas decorations. Just Marshmallow aka Tom, the cat. (with Jayne's coat under his head for a pillow...she took such great care of him)





Oh, and Auntie Mary taking a nap. I figured she wouldn't mind me posting this as you can't see her face, so it is our word against hers that it is really her. ;)

I love the new blog appearance. It is fun. You certainly are talented. I love the Christmas picture of the kids... Abrahm really does remind me of his dad in those glasses! I'm glad the kids had fun in Nevada. ~Deb

wow love the new decorating. I just laughed reading about the jackets. When we moved to Vegas from the mountains, my girls had outgrown their heavy coats, so we didn't replace them as Vegas is always hot. Poor kids almost froze that first winter. The pics of the cat are hilarious.
