Business



hey guys! I would have posted more this past month, but WOW. we've sure  been real busy. let me see what all we did...


turned our alfalfa field into square bales (and got way stronger and now our arms are allll scared up from lifting them....)

cut and baled hay

did lottttts of silage bales with our in-line wrapper

I worked with Chorus and made quite a bit of progress (now I'm starting to ride her and I'm soooo exited!!!)

I did all of the turning the bulls out, moving the cows, checking the bulls, fixing the fence, etc. ( cause dad was in the hay field) now my horse needs a 3 month break

our cousins came from ohio came for 4 days ( I have no idea how we found time to spend time with them.....)


130 of our heifers got mixed up with my great uncles cows cause the bulls were fighting on both sides of the fence and knocked down the 2 top wires, so my cousin Promise and me had to sort the cows and fix the fence. and we couldn't find one of our bulls and the cows pushed the gate down after we had half of them sorted (idk WHY) and when we found our  bull he was lame. so yeah.... there were a lot of difficulties but that's kinda a story of its own... you can ask me about it some time. it turned out to be really fun after we got over the stress of it....


i'm planning on getting a little 6 month old filly this fall to train and sell so that will be real fun


went to like 3 graduations (I loved all the FOOD ;D) the games were fun too


Larissa babysitted two little boys under 20 months pretty much every day. I helped her when I could so that was fun


we just got back from a wedding in south Dakota. it was a lot of fun swimming in the pool with our friends


just now I was cutting our oats field but then dad told me to stop because it was gonna rain but now its not so I have to go back out





I wish I had pictures of all of it to post on here but I haven't had any time :(

Happy Independence Day





Hi People!

I wish I had time to write a long post about why we celebrate the 4th of July. but since I'm really busy, I'll just show a few pictures of the fireworks I took last year.














I really wish I could post videos without a youtube channel on here. because then I could show you my hilarious video that my little brother Lawson and me made last 4th of July. I filmed while he snuck up on our cats and shot party poppers at them. I know it sounds really mean. but we only did it on the male cats that are realllly annoying and we don't like. ;D

Summery Drinks

Hey Y'all!

Late June all the way to August is pretty stinkin' hot around here.(I'm sure I don't know what I'm saying, cause I live up north, but whatever)

So I'm gonna give you some of my very most secret recipes to my own, made up, refreshing, iced drinks.




SUMMER SLUSHIE:

( I know I spelt slushy wrong, but its my own recipe and I can name it HOWEVER I want. plus, ie looks better that y.)










INGREDIENTS:



 2 1/2 c. grape fruit juice

 2 tbsp. honey

1/4 c. lemon juice 

3 c. ginger ale


INSRUCTIONS:

step 1. mix all ingredients thoroughly together. (make sure the honey dissolved and isn't sitting at the bottom)

step 2. pour into ice cube trays.

step 3. freeze completely 

step 4. put about 5 cubes (depending on the size of cubes and how big of a slushy you want) in a magic bullet or blender 

step 5. pour into a glass cup and enjoy!


OPTIONAL: 

if you don't have any grape fruit juice or you don't like it, use orange juice instead.


ICED COFFEE:





INGREDIENTS:

1/2 c. coffee

1/8 c. heavy whipping cream

1 tsp. vanilla 

1/4 tsp. caramel extract

1/2 tsp stevia or truvia





INSTRUCTIONS: 

step 1. mix all ingredients thoroughly together with a straw in a 1 pint heat bearable mason jar 

( I like to use these jars cause they can handle the heat and the cold, and they are adorable)

step 2.  set in fridge for 3-6 hours
(I like to make it ahead if time, so then I don't dilute it out with a zillion ice cubes. I like to taste the coffee. espessially since mom and dad buy it raw and organic and roast it their selves (with dad's homemade roaster)

step 3. add four ice cubes




NOTE: 

I almost didn't put this recipe on here, because EVERYONE  knows how to make iced coffee. but caramel extract is my secret ingredient that makes ALL the difference. you just have to try it. 





ICED BERRY OOLONG TEA





(NOTE: your probably gonna have to go to a grocery store or amazon to buy some of these ingredients. but this summer drink is sooo good and refreshing, its totally worth spending your money on.)






INGREDIENTS:

1 packet of oolong tea

2 c. hot water

7-8 drops stevia berry sweetener

2 tsp. chia seeds (this is what makes the drink so fun. the seeds start to gel up around the outside, but if you bite them they are crunchy and don't taste like anything.


INSTRUCTIONS:


step 1. steep the tea with the water in a 1 pint heat bearable mason jar for about 5 minutes

step 2. remove tea bag

step 3. add the berry drops and chia seeds

step 4. set in fridge for about 5 hours

step 5. add 3-4 ice cubes, add a straw and enjoy!


ICED CHAI LATTE 
(this recipe is actually kinda Lindy's, but I altered it to my own likings.)





1 packet of chai tea

1  1/2 c.  hot water

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp caramel extract

 1 tsp. stevia

1/8 c. cream

1/4 c. whipped cream or cool whip

cinnamon and sugar


INSTRUCTIONS:

step 1. steep the tea bag with the hot water in a 1 pint heat bearable mason jar for 3 minutes

step 2. remove tea bag

step 3. add the vanilla, caramel extract, cream and stevia

step 4. set in fridge for 5 hours

step 5. add the whipped cream to the top

step 6. sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the top

My saddle. It's got a roping horn, and it's also real comfortable. those were the two huge qualifications I had for a new saddle when I was growing too big for my last one. I hope I'll be able to keep it forever and ever.









Shaving foam. Its soo fluffy and- and... its what a dream cloud should be like. its just so awesome and full of goodness. if you ever want to be my favorite person ever you can buy me 50 bottles of it and throw a party with all my friends there. but make sure to get the un- scented stuff.

What's Been Happening For The Past 2 Weeks


Hey!!! I'm so sorry I haven't posted much lately. We have been crazy busy the past few weeks with being in the field, our cows having babies, and getting ready for the wedding, and trying to plant stuffs in the garden.  Today is really super crazy windy (uh, like 30 mph.... :o :o :o) so I found some time to write a post.



Dad found a baby jackrabbit in the field for me!!! Cause I've been trying to find a local one to buy.

 He's not very old, so I have to feed him raw cows milk with an eye dropper 4 times a day. When I first saw him I was excited, but I didn't really think he would live that long. (Cause we've had baby jackrabbits before) but We can have fun and play with him for now. a hawk would most likely eat him out in the field anyway so I don't feel as bad taking him from his home.
I named him Sherman ;D

I've been making some wooden crates for Josh and Lindy's wedding (to serve the homemade bread in), so I took one of them and Sherman  out on the grass. we had a little photoshoot.






















Isn't he about the cutest thing ever????










Friday= A Rare Family Movie Night/My Homemade Icecream














testing out our punch recipe for Lindy and Josh's wedding 
















I made gingersnaps for dad's lunches we pack so he has something to eat in the field





Rainy Day= Reading These




(PICTURE COMING SOON!!)







driving this beast on an 85 degree day with no air conditioning..... haha






























working with Cory every morning before going out to the field <3 <3 <3
















we tried on our fancy clothes for Josh and Lindy's wedding (that is coming up VERY fast) to see if the fit, looked good together, etc.
it was oh so dreadful. I can't believe I'm gonna have to wear such a fancy dress allll day. what if I spill punch on it?





I've eltzo been drinking LOTSS of summery drinks.... and being outside and getting as bronze as an indian.... How bout you??







I've lately been reading the book of Ephesians.... what about you guys? what have you been reading in your bible? how has it strengthened your walk with God? how can I pray for you??
