Happy New Year!

Hi, all! I hope you are having a great January 1! We are getting a break in the weather. It is up to 45º here right now. Made doing outdoor chores so much better. Our snow has melted and left us with a lot of mud though.

Most of our days last week were spent indoors relaxing and keeping warm. We started back with school yesterday doing only History, writing, and spelling. We took today off for New Years and will jump back in Wed. & Thurs. with full days of school and will take Fri. off for homeschool bowling. 🙂

Wintertime is reading time!

Our new goat, Buddy, is doing well. We were able to get a full dose of liquid dewormer down him today. It gets harder once they learn what a syringe is. Lilac and Willow now know that it means either a shot or dewormer, and they don’t like either one. 🙂

We were so happy to have the Dawsons over for lunch on Sunday. It was sort of a Christmas get together. They brought us a gingerbread house. We had fun putting it together Sunday night since we did not do one this past Christmas.

Last night we stayed up late playing The Game of Life.  It was a fun time, and we had a lot of good laughs. I made finger foods and about 45 seconds before midnight we turned on the T.V. to watch the ball drop. Then we dropped. 🙂


Have a great 2013!

  1. Glad to hear 2013 is starting off great for you and your family. I love your fire place, so cosy looking.
    I think that building a gingerbread house ( or barn) which is usually what we normally do, is the only christmas tradition we did not get to this year. The kiddies sure asked enough but I just could not find time to fit it in. Your looks great.
    Jayne got the game of life for her birthday and the kiddies love playing it too. I like your better though with all those yummy snacks.
    Take care and stay warm. It is -29 here today with 2 feet of snow on the ground. No mud for us…

  2. Your floors look great. The kids look like they had a great time. We haven’t had snow yet, just flurries. I hope you had a great Christmas and Happy New Year!


  3. What great pictures. We still have snow on the ground. Once it melts I know the mud is coming. Have a wonderful evening with your family.
