Goodbye Christmas Tree!

O.k., who left the matches out where Jason could find them?!!!
What else are ya gonna do with some old Roman candles and a Christmas tree laying around the yard?

Seth solves the Rubik's Cube!

O.k., for real this time! - Seth Sovles Rubik's Cube

He uses a little more than the prescribed 20 moves (try like 57,000 or so moves) which is said to be possible in every scenerio, but the bugger can solve the stupid thing!

Hillbillies On Ice

We had a snow day this week and could my children go out and play in the snow like nice, normal children?! Joe is still trying to figure out how to work an innertube. (He has to be smarter than an innertube first!) And of course Seth turned sledding into a full-contact sport.

How Californians dress for snow

Pretty Sunrise

The Happy Couple

My cow is such a hussie!
You hear stories all the time about bulls breaking down a fence in order to get to a cow. In fact, very few fences are considered "bull proof" when it comes right down to it. Right?
Well a little while back the neighbor put his bull in the pasture next to ours. No big deal. He has a whole herd of cows over there, plenty to keep the bull busy, no worries.
So we go out a couple of days later to find the fence between the pastures knocked down. Not only is the fence knocked down but one of the big heavy posts is broken clean off!
Now that took some doin'!
Upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that the fence was broken down in a direction LEAVING our pasture, not coming into our pasture. A quick look around confirms our suspicions...there is Laverne, throwing herself all over the neighbor's bull!
Usually it's the bull breaking down the fence to get to a cow. Not around here, my cow goes fence bustin' when she sees her some good lookin' bull!
My cow is such a hussie!

'Bout time I posted some Christmas pics

We had a great Christmas in 2010.
Katie got her giant bucket of cheese balls and new games for her DS.
Seth got his retard hat which he wears proudly--and a nice horn to go with it which we NEVER hear the end of! Harpo rides again!
David received the gift of many Russian rabbits to wear upon his head while he drinks some sort of fizzy Russian drink (NOT vodka!--that's for his mom to cope with all the stupidity around here!).
Joe is permanently attached to his phone, turns into a zombie on a regular basis and is sporting a sweet new Veyron.
And Jason gave me a gorgeous wool shawl from Russia and David gave me a silk scarf from there as well.
