Puzzles, Woodburning and CATAN


This winter, dad has found some ways to spend time with us when he is not fixing a broken baler or tractor. He couldn't possibly be a better father!!!!!

here's some pictures:

Landon, Lawson and me were so excited when Catan finally came!

Playing Catan ALL the time..... I fear we will get board (get it?) of it and never want to play it for a long while.

Dad has been putting together puzzles with me and Lawson.....

Dad bought me an awesome new woodburner cause I was using our old junky one..... I feel SPOILED. 
And the boards are just from are old windbreaks out in the corral :D Isn't that awesome??

Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawears.

// Cold Weather //

I know I'm a day late. but that's ok, right? I just forgot yesterday. :I

do you miss the nice weather? I SURE DO! Sometimes I get so tired of the -40 degrees (Seriously. I'm not exaggerating. its what the weather gets to be in the winter here.) I start to complain.

This is a conversation we had while putting layers and layers of snow stuff on:

"Its SO cold out! look at the frostbite on my cheek!"
 Then Lawson (7 years) whipped out a saying. "'As a rule man's a fool. When its hot he wants it cool, when its cool he wants it hot,  always wanting what its not.'" Such a smart kid! I don't think any of us have complained 'bout the weather since then!

Mr. Orange

Today at dinner I was peelin' an orange and I made it into a guy that ate too much.

Beef Butchering

The past two weeks we've been selling beef to people. We butcher it, hang it in the cooler, then cut it up, grind and package. sometimes I help grind the beef, and sometimes I cut the fat off and stuff with a fancy butcher knife. One time we processed 4 beef in one day.

Back to the daily 'grind'. ;D

Cory and Me

the other day  got a few pictures of Chorus and me. She kept movin' around so it was hard to get a good one. Once in a while she  would nuzzle me or stare at the camera and try to nibble it.


Aren't the highlights on her hair gorgeous?! And I did not edit them into the picture!

Lefse Making

Guess what we made.


Have you ever tasted anything so magnificent, soft, buttery and sweet and full of goodness?

One year we made TWELVE batches. And I didn't even get tired of eating it. I guess I'm a true Viking.


We all take turns flipping them on the grill. And...... I normally turn them black because my cooking skills are AMAZING.

Mom rolled patties for four hours without stopping or complaining.
