Hey everyone!! Hope you are all doing good. Thought I would just pop in and let you know we are all alive and kicking well. My truck isn't, Page's leg was almost broke. But really life is good. I've had serious issues with my internet lately so I don't do much at all except get on and pay some bills, a few other things (like downloading a new preschool pirate pack from Dawn at Our Little Monkeys). Hopefully in like October we will have internet up and running good again, until then, I may continue my little siesta from blogging, until then.
Anyways here is a fun new picture of our newest babies.

The lambs are KaDee and Daisy (they follow Daisy and Page Everywhere, the Bull is named The Black Bull, he's just a little guy right now, but next year he'll be huge!
:) Have a great summer!!

Living like no one else.

"Live like no one else, so later you can live like no one else."
Have you heard this before?
Yes it is a Dave Ramsey saying.
It's my motto to finances.
So as you probably know we are only down to owing on our land, which we would have to sell 114 steers to pay it off as of today. Seeing how we only have 30 cows on the place and only about half are at reproducing age, that number is a little disheartening.  But really I can't complain, we have a 160 acres that we got at a BARGAIN price, seriously you can get about 5 acres for the price we paid, (ya we are lucky).
Anyways onto the post.
So since we are so debt disgusted right now (thanks to watching others make stupid mistakes). We have decided we are going to super pay our land off and then save to build our house (I'm estimating at about 300k), when should this all be completed...in about 5 years!!!
I'm so EXCITED!!!
I can handle this little POS house I live in (I may actually miss it) for the chance to build my dream house with cash, for that long.
I can handle Koda working the job he works for that long.
I will make do with the vehicles we have for that long.
Especially if we can be living in our custom built house, debt free, on our farm by the time I'm 30.
Now you may call me crazy and that this is an unrealistic venture.
But that's ok, cause it's me who will be smiling in the end. :)
Oh and yes, if I have to extend this timeline out to 10 years, I'm still doing it.
Wish me luck!

Our Life in Pictures...Well Mostly Melody.

Hows life been here?
Crazy fun with all the drama you can imagine from a household with three little girls.
They have all started into a fighting/biting each other stage.
I have no idea how to deal with this.
Some exciting news, we have paid off all our extra loans. We now only have the land loan! So happy.
Anyways Melody is fighting me for the computer so I'm going to get off.
Enjoy the pictures of our life lately.
I've started Digi Scrapping, I Love it!! This is one of my first speed scraps.

She is becoming quite the comedian!

Sorry you have to tilt your head, but I've finally got one of my can shelves up and rollin' (hehe) one more to go!

A new favorite place to play.

These guys are starting to show up. Ya!! Spring is here!!

Horsey Ride.

Melody's new favorite activity, turning the main power off to the computer.

Who says I don't live in a small town???
Bonus points if you know who's cows they are.

Climbing Trees

Blasting flying orange objects.
Have to boast here. I haven't ever shot a shotgun, I haven't shot anything in over a year and a half.
On this day I got two of my four shots.
I stopped while ahead and went and cooked lunch. :)

Exciting News

I'm so excited!!! I have one solid floor in my kitchen!!!
I've been living with three different floors since July.

The "new" floor, the grand canyon, and then the old floor.
But not anymore.
Loving my kitchen remodel!

Hey life is going good here, crazy but good.
Sorry for the lack of posting, maybe sometime in the future I'll have more energy and memory when I do sit down at the computer, so I can type out some more posts!
Hope all ya'll are doing well!!

PS I know you were all excited that I was going to tell you baby # 4 was on its way....hahaha, not yet.

Lunch Time

So today has been a rare day.
(besides the planting weather we've had in February....it's odd!)
So today Koda actually was able to come home for lunch!
So I thought I'd so something different for us and have chicken salad sandwiches.
I like them.
Plus I needed to make sure my recipe tastes good for Erica's bridal shower.
Well, it was a total flop!!
The food was great! I loved it.
The other three people in my house...not so much.
Melody is on my side (hey I'm #1 in her eyes right now)
So I made them some chicken quesadilla's.
I ate some too.
It was approved by the other three....go figure....
