Doing Laundry

I had to take pictures just to have proof that my daughter can and did do laundry at one time. Yes my busy daughter loves to help do laundry (take the clothes to the washer, put the clothes in the dryer, fold up the clothes and finally put them up). Lucky I know but I'm not sure how long this will last. So I really wanted to have proof that she did do laundry in her life time and YES, that she can do laundry. We have to work on keeping our shirt on while doing laundry-or all the time. We can only work on a few things at a time.

Dominos for All

This past weekend we had a house full of family to visit with and enjoy. One evening Kenneth, his Grandpa Harry, Grandma Nadine and Mom Janice decided to play dominos. Kallie wanted to play as well so Great Grandma Theroux gave Kallie her own set of dominos to play with and she was tickled red. It also kept Kallie out of their way! Sneaky!

Kallie verses the Dirt Clot

Kenneth and I have been building fence up front and Kallie has been helping. Kallie will help a little and then start picking up rocks, sticks and dirt clots and throwing them. Well today she spotted the perfect dirt clot, reared back and let er rip and right back it came at her. The dirt clot hit the wire on the fence and came right back at her, hitting her in the nose. So now she is sporting a few scratches on her nose. It didn't stop her from throwing more, it that hard headed or what.

Happy 4th of July America

For the 4Th of July some of my family came up to Stephenville to help us celebrate America's Day. We had hot dogs, chips, dips and laughter. What a great time. Then at 9:00pm we headed into town to the park to watch the beautiful firework show. We got to the park and finally found a parking spot-which turned out to be the perfect spot. We caught part of the concert and then the firework show started. What a beautiful show and Kallie loved it. She and my granny sat together to watch the show. It is a wonderful site to see your daughter getting to enjoy her great-granny.

Garden 09 update

I just wanted to update the pictures on our garden which is producing wonderfully. We have made Bread and Butter pickles, Dill pickles, Pickled Okra and Squash pickles. I have also made Hot Sauce which is partically made from our garden and I have made Mesquite Bean Jelly and if you have never had any.......Oh Boy you are missing some of the best jelly there is. Kallie's pumpkins are doing great too, we have one that is already starting to turn orange so we will be harvesting her 1st pumpkin soon. She is very excitted.

The New Barnes Yard

Tuesday they started the work on our new yard and finished up our yard today. We had 5 cedar trees bull-dozed and a ton of dirt hauled in from the front pasture. It looks amazing, I can't even believe the change. Now we are working on getting our grass started again and eventually planting some oak trees.....Red Oak if I have it my way. Kallie is loving the yard and runs as fast as her long legs will carry her across the yard. Amazing is all I can say.
