90 Years old

Today is my Mother in Law’s 90th. birthday.

Last weekend we had a big birthday party outdoors at her house there were over 100 people there.

She is very active and she says that it is to keep her mind strong.

My Mother in law is one of those people who does not bad mouth others. I respect this woman so so much for that.

She is one of the strongest Christians I know. She spends 5 days of 7 days at the church making rosaries, quilts for the bazaar and they do other odds and ends.

If that is not enough she makes quilts, lap quilts etc for all her family. She loves reading and reads a book on most days.

She has 4 siblings 3 brothers and 1 sister and 3 are in their 90’s and 2 are in their late 80’s. It is such a blessing to be able to celebrate her 90th birthday with all of them.

Happy Birthday to her today and we love her very much.

 

 

New puppy on the farm

The twin girls wanted a puppy they could hold. Something small and cuddly.

After researching breeds our daughter Jeanelle and her husband David decided on a miniature long hair dapple dachshund.

She does not officially have a name yet but we have heard the names Lady, Little Lady and Pebbles from the kids.

The first picture she is in a child’s size fedora hat I figured this would show her size pretty good.

Monday was her first official photo session with me and needless to say she was quite easy to photograph.

A little heifer is born

The first calf was born on the farm and she is a registered miniature Hereford heifer named Penny.

She is about 2 weeks old in these pictures and you can tell she is very small. Compare her to the fence post by her mom.

She loves the kids and all the attention she has been getting.

Pretty Pretty Horses

I love looking across a pasture and seeing animals being carefree. These horses belong to our daughter’s neighbors.

They love to roll in the dirt and mud just like all other horses and cows.

I try and get a few pictures of them when I can and on this day they were happy eating and posing.

Bluebell

Bluebell is a full-size Jersey milk cow. She was named after the ice cream and living in Texas it only made sense to name her that.

Our daughter Jeanelle was ready to have a milk cow she wants to learn to make butter, cream, ice cream, and cheese and much more. Bluebell will be having a baby in October.

The first picture was really good timing not that I wanted to see a cow put their tongue up their nose lol.

I love cows big or small they all seem to photograph quite well. Bluebells eyes are just amazing.
