My tallest Christmas tree ever!


Ever since we moved into this house, I got smaller trees. Probably because we had regular 8' ceilings at the old house -- you get into the habit of getting smaller trees! This year, I got a great deal on this tree..and it was 8' tall! It's funny though because it barely had enough room for my ornaments! My girl here is 8 yrs old and a tiny little thing.

Merry Christmas to all and don't forget the reason for this blessed season!

neighbors up the road

The neighbors up the road asked me to take photos of their bull that they wanted to sell. Well...this isn't the bull, but it's a sweet cow that was in their barn. (did you know that technically cows are female...males are bulls or steers?)...anyway they refer to their 4 hoofed hamburger as "cattle". Hamburger on the hoof we say as we drive past their place. Their hamburger is yummy though!

marriage license

We have very little left from our paternal Grandparents. A friend in the Czech Republic is trying to help us find out more about them. This document is in church latin? Oh how I wish my Mom were alive...she took Latin in High School!

The paper is longer than my scanner bed. Ah well...it's a try.

Random Acts of Kindness

A very nice person from Texas RAK'ed my 8 yr old Olivia :)
This is a photo of the stuff she sent. Livi was SO THRILLED! She is quite the trooper knitting at 8 years old!

John Gavlas

This is a very bad scan of a photo of my grandfather. I'm placing it here so that some Gavlas' in Europe can see it. I'll take this post down soon probably.

Can you find the morel?

We went mushroom hunting...my first time ever...at the neighbor's. I was also introduced to tics...yeuch! But nothing bad happened with the tics...I just got to see one.

There is a morel mushroom in the photo...they are sneaky little buggars that like to hide out in the wildflowers!

I think I'm done with the mushroom hunting for a little while!

My poor darling...youngest is more like an only child than the youngest when it comes to things like dyeing Easter eggs. She doesn't seem to mind though.

Philly cat escaping from the Aubster

Aubrey the dog attacks Phil the cat as often as he can. Phil the cat can climb trees though. Phil the cat has had a rough winter. He got clawed by something which resulted in a trip to the vet & antibiotics, then he was limping around with a swollen paw paw. He seems to be on the mend. Tom cats have it rough in the country. His sister, Lil, alias fattie, is not a tom cat by any means. She scoots into the heated garage as fast as she can to get out of the weather and to her food. That fattie cat is FAT! Photos of fattie to follow. Hopefully I can catch her low hung belly.

New great nephew

My niece, Jennifer, had a bouncing baby boy on March 1st. He was the same weight as my oldest; 9# 6 oz. I made him this baby sweater..the 5 hour baby sweater..even though it took a little longer than 5 hours :)

I have to mail it out quickly before he grows out of it!
