Sophia's little mishap.

 A couple months ago we went on a sight seeing trip with my Aunt, grandparents, sister and her husband and baby. Took the day and went to the Gates of the Mountains in Montana. It was a fun trip, but quite warm, so leaving the boat we were very hot and tired and hungry. There was not much of a place to eat so we left to find a pick-nick spot for lunch. We settled on a site along the river on the way back to Great Falls, even though it was very rough and not kid friendly.

  We have had a busy summer and I am now trying to play catchup in getting blog posts done to fill in everyone on my trips. Not that anyone cares, but it's fulfilling all the same. 

My Sister's 25th Birthday

 My baby sister's birthday was today.Unfortunately I passed the year to say I was only 25 a while ago, Oh those younger years...

I was thrilled to have her agree to come and spend the day with me out on the ranch here. Her husband was working a long day and she would have been by herself otherwise. So in my excitement I decided to ask if she'd like to make her first trek to a Hutterite Colony, and she said yes. I have been telling her a great deal about my special friends and was very anxious to show her off along with my brand new little niece.



 After all the worry about Dan's tumor, Sophia and I headed to the colony for a much needed visit and dinner. We loaded up all our tons of goodies we had baked(Sophia did help me with most of them) and headed out. We were in town on Tuesday and Clara asked us to pick up a bunch of pops and juice for the work crew fixing up Brenda's house. 

Life is full of Shit

 It's been a very long last couple of weeks. It all started when we headed to Boise ID for a miniature show and along the way Dan got sick and we ended up in the Emergency Room, as soon as we pulled into town. We suspected it was a bladder infection, as Dan had one in January as well. He was in a lot of pain and we just wanted to get some antibiotics and head to the hotel. Our ER Doc was being very thorough and decided to get a CT scan to check for kidney stones.

I am a Auntie!

 My sister and her husband just had their first baby on April 10th 2010. Welcome Roslyn Ayvonne! She was a very big 8 lbs. 7 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long. I've been very fortunate to be able to spend a couple days with her. She is the sweetest little thing and I am so happy for them both! 




Eating Pizza

Sophia get her pizza eating skills from me.


Burger King Kid


 We recently went to Burger King to eat the famous Whopper and got a crown for Sophia. I am pretty sure Romi our kitten gets more use out of it than Sophia, but once in a while she grabs it and on her head it goes usually while dancing.

Eating Strawberries with Sophia

 Sophia and I decided to bake some Date Filled Cookies and before we started we just had to eat some strawberries! Needless to say Sophia really enjoyed them...




Sorting at the Colony


  My time at the colony this week was fun as usual. I have been working on getting supplies for my miniatures to use in classes and to sell at shows. It’s been a long process as quite a few of the items I have been buying have been through some companies in Hong Kong. Once in a while I get these harebrained ideas to start a project and realize the time involved, so I sheepishly take my project to the colony and get some help. And help I do get!
