Nothing like a White Christmas!

That's right, it has snowed as most of you probably already know. It didn't really snow that much down in West Texas, but this year T and I went to my in-laws for Christmas in New Mexico. And did it snow there!!

I love this picture! My sis-in-law took it for us.

It was snowing when we got to T's parents place in New Mexico.

I love Hereford bulls so I had to get a picture of one.

We also went sledding and had snowball fights.

Doesn't he look handsome! I thought so too! :)

T's dad made us both a pair of boots for Christmas. I love mine!

I also drew this picture for T's parents. That is a picture of his dad. I'm very proud of this piece, I tried some different techniques and I think they worked!

We had such a fun filled, busy Christmas and I had lots to tell, but I decided it would be better just to post pictures. I think people would rather look at pictures anyways. Hope you enjoyed!

Birthday's and Baby presents

Who would have thought that I'd be getting baby things for my 19th birthday? I sure didn't, but I love it! Tuesday was my actual birthday, December 7th, but Sunday night my parents and grandparents came out to the house for supper. My mother cooked me lasagna, a tradition for my birthday for as long as I can remember! It was fun, My grandparents hadn't ever been out to my house so I was excited to pick things up and decorate. Just ask T, I think he was a little put out me for cleaning so much. Only because he made the mistake of getting all of his things done and I put him to work when he got home. Oh well, it's good for him!

My parents got me a new car seat for little K when he gets here. Just the first of many baby things we are going to need I imagine. My friend is working on putting a baby shower together for me, sometime in January but we are still pondering ideas. I can't wait for it!

Today I had to work and boy let me tell ya, I'm tired! My helper wasn't there today so I had to do a lot of cleaning by myself, and I didn't even come close to getting it all done. Luckily I have tomorrow and my helper should be there to get the rest of it done. But for now, I'm sitting here with my feet up!

I wanted to add a lot more to this post, but I'm to tired too.. Sadly. So I'm going to say good night and see ya next time! :)

Windmill's and such

I know I blogged yesterday, but it's Sunday afternoon and I wanted to share some pictures with ya'll.
T took me to see a windmill yesterday on our way over to some friends. It's not just any ol' windmill though, this one is really old and is completely forged!

T says that it has a span of 20-25 feet, he couldn't remember which but I had him stand in front of it to see just how big it is. I also thought the sky is really pretty behind it.

This is a leg of the windmill and you can see that there are no welds or anything.

Pretty neat huh? I thought so!

Well, I just had to share and I needed a break from cleaning. (My motivation is still MIA but I've been forcing myself to pick up the house.) T went with the hunters that are here this morning so I was able to get a lot done. I thought we would get to spend the afternoon together, but the hunters came back after dinner and asked if T could go play. So I'm here by myself, trying to get out of cleaning :)

Ya'll have a great week!

No Motivation!!

Nope, nada, none! No motivation whatsoever. This past week it has just up and left me and it's not a good thing! I have a house to clean, presents to wrap, a yard that really really needs picking up. Not to mention a truck that I've been wanting to clean for some time now because there is a "happily hitched," sign still painted on the back window. How sad right? Yes indeed, very sad. I have all these ideas and no motivation and it's driving me crazy! Maybe tomorrow I can get some things done, since I don't have to work and T will be around to help. I doubt it though, that has been my excuse for the past week.

I am very proud of myself this year. I have all of my Christmas shopping/crafting done for the season, save wrapping everything but that shouldn't take me very long. We also have our Christmas tree picked out, but we are waiting to cut it down. I don't want it to dry out this early on, although I'm excited about getting it up. Of course, it would help if I would take down my fall decorations, but no motivation is responsible for that. I haven't gotten my Christmas cards done yet though, still waiting on pictures.

In other news, I'm 26 weeks today! Doesn't that mean I'm in the 3rd trimester? Or at least really close to it! Little K has been kicking and kicking me like crazy, and seems to like the right side of my belly. It always bulges out more on that side.

Not a very good picture huh? I thought for sure I'd be bigger by now, but to me it looks the same! T says I've gotten bigger. I disagree... In my hips but not my belly.

Well, not much else has been happening around here. It's hunting season out here so work has picked up and T has been in a really good mood lately. Since he doesn't have to see certain people everyday. Tonight we are going over to eat with some of the other ranch hands and it will take us about two hours to get over there. So, I'm going to force myself to do something.. wish me luck.
