~Careful how you write it!

January~

~My Husband and I have been together for 2 1/2 years now!!

~We start off every January with a birthday... No, not Jesus' birthday, that's at the end of December... I'm referring to Tbug Poor girl, her birthday is just 8 days after Christmas.

~We got some BEAUTIFUL sunsets!!

~My {step}daughter said she wanted a phone.... She's 9 (see above).
~I received some words of wisdom from my dad.
~I "helped" my husband cut woodOk I did more than that but while I was taking photos I was less than helpful.  But I like to be warm so I put the camera away and actually helped.  No really, I did!

~And who doesn't like to think?!?!
~Don't believe me that Farm Kids are a different Breed?  Check this out and you may think differently...
~You know, after a bunch of the kiddo's in my life didn't know who John Wayne was, I found a paper I wrote in college and gave everyone a lesson on "The Duke"

February~

~ Hubby and I got excited about some Banana Bread!! But who wouldn't?  Right?

~Sometimes you have to go sit in your old blue chair and ponder life....
~I stepped outside my comfort zone and felt a Breast Cancer Tumor on a Cadaver no less.
~Tbug loves to take over my kitchen and cook!
She's Making Ande's Mint Cookies
~February 12, 2012 - 2 years to the day after my husband proposed to me at 10:15am.
 ~We hauled Squirty down to Texas so that we'd get our baby in 2013.
~Our last set of baby lambs were born as we sold out of the sheep business later on in the year.

~I swear I have some of the weirdest dreams to boot!
~I told you the girl loves to cook!
Here she's making Homemade BBQ Sauce

~And then one of the worst things happened this month (ok maybe that's a bit over exaggerated but still!!!) I dropped my external hard drive and have lost or messed up over half of the photos... there were 40K on the hard drive too :(.  I'm still sick about it!
~Since being Chicken Farmers didn't pan out, we've decided to try our hand at Bee Keeping...

~I had my first Blate with Stef from Too Much To Do So Little Time
Stef, Hubby, Me, Stef's daughter, The Offspring
~And seriously... Anatomy & Physiology II has you doing weird things like dissecting cats or cow eyeballs or even cadavers.  It's not a class for the faint of heart, that's for sure!

~March

~We learned how I describe my writing style circa 2003.
 ~And I gave you my Camera History which has been outdated since I wrote this...
~We got some much needed quality puppy lovins!
~Now that we're coming back around to cold dry weather, it's so time to share my secret to soft hands, again!  Yes, that is in fact chap stick.
~And you have to love funny conversations with your spouse!
Me: What are you doing?
Hubby: I'm inspecting the back of my eye lids.  One of them is needing an alignment.  The other one has a bent   tie-rod and the horn is wired backwards.
M:  I think someone is a little sleep deprived.
H: Why are you tired?
M: No you're the one talking about tie-rods and you don't have tie-rods in your eyes.
H: But I do have rods.
M: You have cones too.
H: Yes, that was the problem.  The tie-rod hit a parking cone and everything went downhill from there.
~Attention Span, what's that?!?!

~Seriously, you'll never buy jarred Alfredo sauce again after this recipe!
~Tbug got her first membership into the AQHYA.


~Tbug did a guest post about her Spring Break with us.
~I got into a minor fender bender on my way to class.  To say I was a little shook up when I got there would be an under statement.  I did find one small screw dent in my bumper where she hit me.
 ~Later that week I sliced the tip off my finger while making a cute hair flower.

~And I found a recipe for Hot Corn Dip that was dubbed (advert your eyes if this will offend you... I didn't name it this, but I did laugh) Boner in a Bowl.

Love the rear view mirror pic and the chapstick tip!

Mrs. Match said...

aw, Tbug is adorable. I love that she cooks and bakes at such a young age. That's awesome! Those lambs are adorable-I bet you miss having lambies around sometimes. I grew up on a farm and I definitely miss it, but not all the work involved!

Heathers Happenings said...

I love the sunset picture, beautiful. Now the words of wisdom from your dad is something I need to remember!

Jill said...

Call me crazy, but once again, I think I remember pretty much ALL of these posts!! haha! Love all the Tbug in the kitchen pics and the beautiful sunset one too! OH and baby lambs!!!!

Connie said...

I forgot that Marley used to be small....

VandyJ said...

Ugg. WE have a nine year old boy at home and he was going on and on the other night about when he would be able to get a phone.
Eventful march--sounds a bit rough on you though.

McVal said...

Wowza! You had a busy winter too! Just going to browse around in here for a while. Thanks for stopping by!

HickChickBritt said...

Haha you had a much more eventful couple of months than me. While on maternity leave I think I only left the house, maybe once a week!

Emmy said...

When I get some more time I am going to be back to click a bunch of those links- I don't think I really read your blog back then. Those baby lambs are so so cute!!

So do you still raise/keep bees? I don't think I could ever do that.

And what a great idea for soft hands!

Thanks so much for hosting and recapping with me :)
