Cracking walnuts

We gathers walnuts in the fall. They are now ready to crack!  The three of us worked diligently and will now use them in our banana bread!

Apple trees

We planted two Apple trees in our land today!  We also made a small clearing to make it easier for us to get in and so they trees could get more sun. 

Fuji and Granny Smith were what planted as they will cross pollinate each other!

Snow and snuggles

When we got up it was 14 degrees and snowing. 

Clementine wouldn't  stay on her bed. She preferred being next to the Iike heater by my feet. That's my girl. 

Slava's Snow Show and dinner

Wow is all I have to say. This show was so amazing. 

We went to the club afterwards and had a Mardi Gras themed dinner and ate way too much!

Tender heart

Today I watched john Lleyton ride his bike "five driveways down".  As he rode back to me he picked up everyone's trash cans and placed them on their driveways. Then he rings me this leaf shaped like a heart. "Mama since its heart shaped I thought you should have it".  This boy is amazing and one day I will have a hard time sharing him.

When the high is 20 and the temps are supposed to steadily drop all day......the furry child gets to go to work with mom.
