Work Horse....

We had a Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you were able to share yours with family and friends. We're hoping to be finished harvesting this week. YEAH! Then its on to more chiseling and hauling manure. This is by far our latest harvest, nothing to be proud of, but things could always be worse. I took my brother and his girlfriend to the farm where Nathan was working and snapped some pictures. This one I did alot of work to, but love the outcome.

Life is Beautiful...

So I haven't created a quilt, but someday it is a goal of mine....and hopefully MANY quilts! Almost everyone in my family quilts or sews, my mom, sisters, aunts and my grandma. I LOVE quilts! Any way, I came across this entry and wanted to repost her giveaway. Helen has designed this wonderful piece of art and shes wanting quotes to giveaway her pattern to some wonderful artists...so enjoy!

He didn't like what I had to offer......

So I was out driving yesterday and saw this deer. A BUCK to be exact. And he wasn't afraid of me. He ran towards me bright red tahoe, ate some grass. Danced around a bit. Posed for some pictures. I stayed safely in my car-behind the windshield photographing. Tessa was freaking out. It was pretty neat. I had my zoom lense on and he was about 30 feet from my vehical.






Happy Trick-Or-Treating!

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

Hope everyone had a happy trick-or-treat night! Here's some pictures of the kids....Tessa was a kitty cat...... My sister makes amazing costumes and she made RyLee and Madison's outfits this year. RyLee was a Giesha, Clay was a Super Hero, and Madison was an Ice Princess. Dad was able to come along from ALL the rain....here we are trick or treating around the square.

Clay was done with pictures...




Beautiful Fall Sky

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

This one I'm ordering! The colors on my computer are beautiful....and they were the other evening when the kids and I were outside playing. I'll be sure to add our Halloween pics ASAP, but I have the lovely head cold and would much rather curl up with a blanket and hot glass of tea in the evening! I never realized the difference in skies during Iowa's seasons until I commissioned a private winter scene painting by Sean Miller of Washington a few years back. So enjoy the skies:)
