Chyann's beloved pup came outside with me this morning and I got the pleasure of seeing her get up and "walk" around some.

Shoot, it's almost the winter solstice - December 21st! The days will start getting longer and so really spring is just around the corner!
Doesn't even look like Chyann has a hold of the reins here, does it?
Special thanks to Caden for coming out to take some pictures.
As I sit here to type this post the weather has changed from rain to sleet and now it's snowing big fluffy flakes.
Maybe I wont be going to the grocery store today. I can't stand driving out during the first snow. Seems some folks forget how to drive and are an accident waiting to happen.
Lots of stuff to do here at home anyway. The regular house cleaning and everyone is getting a hair cut too.
Still putting in the OT for work and full nights here so it's been busy.

Chyann and I had so much fun riding horses yesterday! We had competitions doing barrels, cones, jumps and even a short race or two. We laughed so much my cheeks hurt! Caden even came out with the camera to take some pictures of us. A few were decent, most were half a horse pic or half a head with lots of sky shots. I'll post a few of those soon.
Chyann was unsuccessful in talking her Daddy into riding with us. He was pooped from all the wood hauling and took the day off. Although he did play some video games with Caden, which thrilled Caden to no end.
Haven't seen much of Colton lately. He seems to think since he is 18 he should be able to do what he wants, when he wants. I'm thinking a come to Jesus meeting is around the corner for him. Because really, he may be 18, but if he's living under our roof there will be rules to follow! And I don't need "but I'm 18" thrown in my face every time I say something he doesn't like, because no shit I know you're 18! And that's another story completely..................
Where is the parenting manual when you really need it?
Toddles.. Back to surfing the web.. Currently looking for exercises to do at your desk that might help me stay bendy and not get so stiff..

Last week was long, 10hours of sitting on my arse everyday.
I rode Jenny and had so much fun. She has progressed so much since last spring and I am loving that. Hopefully we can keep all the horses ridden throughout the winter. It'll be hard though as Chyann will be unable to ride for about 3-4 months come January due to an operation she is having. More on that later.
Caden had a buddy over and they wanted to take down the sunflower stocks and can we use a hatchet? Sure you can take them down, but not in this lifetime will I let you use a hatchet to do it. Not that I don't trust Caden with one, but the buddy -- I don't think so.
Here is what I'm left with now.
A look from the back pasture South.
Jeez, I sure with the neighbors would hurry up and get this corn harvested! Almost all the corn in our area has been done, but this field and the one across the street. What's up with that?
Caden and Chyann under the willow.
What a pretty boy.
The Hubby and Colton got a bunch of wood hauled yesterday.

I didn't get any good pictures of them jumping, but they sure had fun.
Definitely not approved riding apparel!
And had better not be worn again!
I mean HELLO! you are wearing a hat, gloves and coat!
It's cold out! Not to mention it could be dangerous wearing slippers!
Hope the weather is nice for this weekend.
We've got wood to cut and haul.

Took Chyann, who didn't dress up for Halloween at all and Caden, the Packer football kid, trick or treating in town for 2hours. The weather was pretty nice, very sunny then turning cold when the sun went down.
Caden got 3 pounds of candy!
Was a nice anniversary for the Hubby and I.
p.s. Colton just called me at work to let me know he voted today! Imagine that..
