Well, I can see I'm once again, WAY BEHIND! So, here's wishing your home a Merry Christmas from the Fishback Household.....and hoping we've all remembered "The reason for the season." And its hard to believe, our little "Sweet Pea" has turned the fabulous "2" today!

Today we enjoyed Tessa's birthday at the Atkinson Christmas in Wellman, sharing her special day with my Aunt Deb. I don't think Tess knew what to do with the big group singing "Happy Birthday to them":)

Its that time of year....

Sorry, no Christmas trees or cookies just yet. Its deer season! Let the chiors sing and everyone rejoice! Yeah, I know you can all hear my joy. Okay, enough about my sarcastic pouting. I should be grateful Nathan shot his on opening day. Which worked out, he went back to field work. Booo nasty Iowa weather for our growing season......I'm sure thats what Nathan was thinking! Now, let us all enjoy jerky and deer bologna!
And thank you to Rick Fulton for sending this picture to me....you wouldn't catch me in one of those fashionable vests with a gun in my hand. No Sarah Palin wanna-be here!

Happy Birthday, Madison!

Today at 4:20 PM, Madison officially turned 8! Its crazy...I wonder where the time went. For lunch I surprised her at her school and ate lunch, and this evening we made her favorite meal....Cheesy Potatoes with Ham and French Bread. Topped off with birthday cake and cotton candy ice cream, that is. She's been asking for a radio so she can play CD's in her room...so TA-DA.....A stereo! Happy Birthday Madison:)
