A Rainy Day

Just some pics of our rainy day on the farm.
Comet getting another shower.
Very foggy on top of the ridge. The cows don't seem to mind the rain too much.
The mom fervently working on the blog her psychotic sister set up for her. Now she has to keep it up. Great!! :)

Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever - the kids have had some good times at the grandmommy and poppy's cabin. They try to spend the night there once a month. They read old comic books, work puzzles, lay around, play cards and games, and just read and draw. Grandmommy working on breakfast.
Build a bears at the cabin-they're having sooo much fun!
Poppy taking a break from work and kids.
Eating popcorn and spending some good ol' time together.

Wild Turkeys

We have had around 80 wild turkeys on the farm these past several days, and they roam from one side of the farm to the other. Pretty cool, huh? These are right outside our back door.
This time they are at the cabin and all in the yard. I couldn't get a good pic of them in the yard, but they were also all around the calf feeders. They are just everywhere, of course, it isn't turkey season, I believe they have an internal calendar that tells them when to go hide. :)

Build a Bear Christmas

It looks like we have enough BABs, but divide them by 4 and they add up quickly. They have soooo much fun with them. This year Unky, Auntie, and little cousins got them BAB gift cards, so we had more fun. They generally stay on the stairs, and they change their clothes periodically.
The 1st step has Sari's BABs, JP has white kitty (didn't know she only had one, she has clothes, but may need to get another later), the next 2 are Juju's and the top step has J-dawg's.
