Camo Christmas

Seems like this Christmas was all about the camo.

Mimi bought all the kids camo and don't they sport it well. 
Of course, Scouty had to be coaxed to wear hers over her princess dress.  
 I'm proud to say I was the one that convinced her. 

Back at the Backward K, Mr. Pake got his first .22. 
It's a Henry and it's so cute, I think I want one in pink!
(btw to explain Tater's greasey atire... well he'd been working at Roll-a-Cone)

Soo all this holiday break, it's been all about hunting jackrabbits. 

To sum it all up, I just had to put this picture in of KD sporting his new camo and fur Elmer Fudd. 

I hope Santy came to see all y'all,  and come to think of it Santy would be cute in camo too!

Two Sweeties

Yall guess what?!  I got another dauschand!  I did! Isn't she a doll just like Miley?!

Not really.  This is Tootsy, Miley's real sister.  She came to visit and they played and played and they are adorable.  But I've decided for now, one dauschand puppy is enough.

Snow Baby

We got some snow last week and boy howdy were we happy!

Two days we started school late, so what did the boys do?

Yep they went sledding.

It was like sledding in snowy dirt but it was fun anyway, even if it was like 5 degrees.... brrrr!
I stayed on the porch to shoot this picture.

Sled?  Yall don't think this looks like a sled?  Well Pake made it out of a chemical tote.  He cut the metal cage off of it and then cut the top off.  It made a great sled, and adds to the rest of the junk my boys drag up in the garage.  Now, we're just waiting  for the BIG snow =)

Alittle Red Paint

K Dawg (aka Kerry Don) went to Wakeeney, Kansas to pheasant hunt last weekend.  He had a great trip!  They had some great hunting and got to see some snow too!  Thank you Cousin Wade for taking him away! Oh not really I don't mean that, we missed him =) 
While he was gone, I had to have a project.........

I started with this old armoire that has been sitting in the corner of my living room.  It really wasn't anything special, constructed of cheap thin wood, but it was old and alittle ornate.  It didn't belong to anyone in my family, I picked it up at a junk store years ago for a 100 bucks. 
 So.... I got alittle crazy with some RED paint.

Half way through I could tell I liked it.  So I went ahead and slapped two coats of red on
and I do mean slap because I am quite possibly the messiest painter EVER.

Of course I couldn't just leave it plain ole red. 
So after getting a little crazier with a sander and some glaze. I was happy with it.

Then, I got to thinking about that little dresser in the guest room.  It wasn't anything special either (wood wise anyway), it was special in that my Momma gave it to me, but I figured she wouldn't mind.

And you guessed it, I slapped some red paint on it and sanded and glazed it too!  I have 2 new pieces of furniture and it didn't cost me a dime, because I already had left over paint and glaze from other projects.  By the end of the day, I was alittle worried and I knew someone needed to take the red paint away.  Did I mention I like red?  But I might have painted enough stuff red for awhile ;) 

K Dawg was sooo excited and impressed when he got home! 

 Ha/Ha, he barely noticed but he's not really into interior decorating.
