Just Catching Up......

No, I didn't fall off the face of the earth. LOL. Since my last post in July we have been so busy going everywhere at once it seemed. My life during the week was nothing but cleaning, cooking and laundry, then we were gone again the next weekend.One of the weekends we were gone in August fell on Chad's 3rd birthday. It was a lot of fun. He got to celebrate with my mom and dad, my brother, his wife and the cousins Codi and Garrett.
After he ate his cake he opened his presents- one of his favorites was this Transformers costume he wanted to wear right away. What a face! He was pretty excited!

That same weekend we drove up the road from our campsite to double cabin which is in the mountains north of Dubois. This is as far as you can get with a vehicle- from this point on there are trailheads you can hike or ride horseback to go even further into the backcountry. Very pretty country. I was glad to see we still have some bits of snow/glaciers in the high country. The last 5-10 years when it had been so hot and dry in the summers the snow didn't stay up there in the summertime.

And yes, Sage is officially a kindergartener now! She was really nervous- I think mostly because her best friend from preschool moved over the summer, so now she had to make new friends. She is doing very well. They go all day every day here and are reading before first grade. Boy things have changed since my school days! I remember half days and taking naps in Kindergarten- not aymore!
A few weeks ago we took the kids and my inlaws to Thermopolis (my hometown) for the weekend. We took them swimming in the warm mineral water and went to see the Wyoming Dinosaur Center. It has come a long way since I was in High School. They now have a supersaurus skeleton that is the size of the whole building. I made Craig pose next to a cast of one of its rib bones. Can you see its skeleton behind him?
Then this last weekend me and the kids went hunting with Craig. The kids wanted a picture taken with it- they thought it was pretty neat. I normally don't like Antelope meat- it is extremely gamey tasting, but it does make the best breakfast sausage! We make our own and it is tasty! :0)

So now that school is in full swing and I only have one kid at home I have finally been able to work on some things. I am trying to work on my supply for the 12 Days of Christmas show I have in Nov and Dec, but I did manage to squeeze in a few dolls for ebay which I did get listed on ebay last night. I have to go get Sage up and ready for school now, but I'll post them here in a few hours or so. Be back in a few..... :0) -Jody
