Work Around The House This Spring

Cleaning out the gutters.

M thrilled to be helping with the gutter job.

The three little ones passing the time in the pool.

This is a lot more fun that what the rest of the family is doing!

My hubby changing all of the oil in our vehicles. He saves us money by doing this himself!

J helping to clear out some area in our back woods. There were some fallen trees, so he used our Polaris with the winch attachment to get them to our burn pile.

J hard at work with the Polaris.

J pulling out another fallen tree.

The area where the fallen tree had been for many years. So glad to have that tree gone!

A Visitor To Our Home

My husband and son went outside heading to Lowe’s to work on some projects around the house over the long weekend.  Imagine my surprise when they came right back in and said come here and bring your camera.  This was on our driveway making its way from the woods and creek behind our house heading towards better hunting grounds we guess.

A snapping turtle sitting on our driveway!

Our cat “Kitty” trying to figure out what this “thing” was. The turtle was not happy with her. The turtle raised up it’s backside and lowered its front like it was going to jump at Kitty.

My husband, my hero! He has lived on a farm his whole life and this was no big deal to him. He has taken many turtles like this down to the nearby river.

It was pretty big (to me, at least). This is a five-gallon bucket. It filled the most of the bottom as you can see.

We measured it with a yard stick. It was 19″ from snout to the end of the tail.

There is always something going on here.  Life is never dull at our house!

Guess Who Got My IPod?

A did.  Need I say more…

I have Mommy’s Ipod.

Look at this funny face!

Wait, this one is better!

How about this one!

In case you are interested, here is my shoe!

There are several more!  Life with a bunch of kids is always interesting!
