Today we went Rockin'  NO not rockin and rollin! 

 There are lots of purty rocks at the ranch.

 I like this ROCK... reackon I could put it in my backyard? LOL

 Rocks from the ranch really are rad!

 Everyone hauled rocks!

We almost got too many rocks though...

The RZR was rockin and rollin' here.... yep we had to go get the pickup.

My boys are so sweet for haulin rocks for me.

Did yall know the prickly pears are pink right now?  I just had to throw that in there.
I also want to thank my KD, because he likes rocks too and he's going back with tractor to get some big ones!  We found out real quick that we didn't have enough muscles.
I just had to throw this in too!  Gosh if I was his Momma I'd be ashamed. 
Their Daddy bought them sunflower seeds and he should be ashamed too!

If any of yall want to come work in the yard don't hesistate, come a runnin'!

Today I became the happiest girl in Swisher County, heck maybe in all of Texas! 
My sweet husband (that can do anything) put up my windmill!

 We hauled the tower to the house on a trailer and used the well rig's crane to stand it up!

It's tall!

 Then, KD welded it down to the metal plates in the concrete holes he poured.

 Then he climbed the tower and I told him please don't fall off, we need you around here!!!!

 Then, raising the head was a little tricky!  I thought how in the world are we going to do this???

But KD climbed the tower again and guided it while I ran the crane which was actually the scarey part.

So, there she is!  The Backwards K now has an old windmill in the yard.

I heart windmills....  I really do!

Now I need a wagon.  Anyone want to give me one?

As Sweet T would say....
Peace Love and My Windmill is Cool!

Prime Rib.... Need I Say More

On the first day of this year, 1-1-11, we were invited to supper. See I knew it wasn't just any ole supper.  This was one of those meals that you dream about all of your life.  It just so happens that this guy we know can cook prime rib.  And who doesn't like prime rib.... I mean seriously....

Prime rib, Sauteed baby portabellas, twice baked taters and salad w/a red wine vinegar dressing. 
Can I just say perfection?

 MUSHROOMS... my fav.  These baby portabellas were totally to die for....
could it be the whiskey that made them so good?
Now this is a beautiful site.... a perfectly pink prime rib..... is your mouth watering yet?

 Then, there's the sauce and let me just tell y'all.... Actually I can't.... it's so good I could never explain.

 So these are the cool folks that invited us for the perfect supper.
I'm just saying when's the last time someone cooked prime rib for you?

It was kinda awesome to start the year out right, with some extra special folks.

Thanks again Todd and Dawn... y'all rock!

Spa Girls

Do I really need to say anything?

Are you rolling on the floor laughing yet?

Well these are few of my girls!  And I love 'em. 

Now they're all gonna kill me.

Christmas 2010 Wrapped Up

Christmas break is great!  Well, it was great, it's obviously over now.   
Anyway, here's a look at some of the interesting events this season.

Pake got braces!  At first he thought they were cool, until he realized how much his mouth hurt.  The funny thing is that Tate can't wait to get them, but with any luck maybe he won't need them. Now that would make Momma happy, because her pocket book may never recover....

The boys are rotten now, well more so anyway!  The kicker is these cool electric remote control trucks, break down frequently and I'm the runner to Amarillo to get parts... thanks Hobby Time.... thanks!

And these big boys can't wait to play with this little guy.... yikes! 

Now Scouty, she's all about the cooking or is it the mess making?

Yes, that's their Mimi!  It looks like Tater's thinking WOW she's just as crazy as me!  Nice Bubba teeth Mimi!

That's my sissy.... she's crafty!  She sews!  Yeah, she makes me look bad... but she made this great soft camera strap cover and guess what yall? It's zebra print!  I know yall would have never guess it.

We had a gingerbread competition, and regardless of what Tori says.... we definetly won!
Ok what ever, they were both good! 

Anyway, this Holiday was memorable and wonderful and great, and it's over unfortunately....

When's spring break?  How many days? Hours?

Windmill Update

They worked on my windmill and I am so excited!  It was no easy task, Kerry Don informed me. 
AND the job is far from being done.

They cut the tower down.

They put the head together.

They put the tail on too!

It's bigger than I imagined.  Also, we decided to leave it all orginal with it's faded paint and rust. 
Yall I can't wait to see it in my yard!  Did I mention how excited I am?

And by the way, I think Kerry Don and Chad might be a little excited too.  But they'll never admit it.
