Getting ready for winter

This past week I have had no internet due to my hubby trenching our water and sewer lines in. He had to disconnect it bc the line was in the way. So I been using my mediocre MTS signal. The day Corey started digging for the water trench he found the power line that comes from our pole to the house......needless to say we were out power for a couple hours. :( Had to call an electrician and we did not get water done that night. It had already froze on us once the night before. Anyways, our water and sewer are complete now. The trailer and porch are gone. I have a beautiful view!
Yesterday we brought more cows home. Fall cows w baby calves. Still have mares to come home from that pasture too, they were not keen on coming in yesterday morning in that raw wind.
Plus I got my lawn mower put away! And it's snowing here right now. Oh yes and it's Halloween this week!
Anyways, that's all for now. - O yes, I got new glasses, what do you think??

Busy day ahead! - Updated

Cows coming home today, selling calves and there are supposed to be guys coming to move the house trailer at 9 am this morning. The kids are hanging with grandma so I can go help sort. I am already looking forward to my bed tonight...will post pictures tonight.

I started off the morning at 6 am by drinking coffee and digging out my winter woolies to keep my feet warm. I then proceeded to go outside while the kids were still sleeping to help my hubby finish getting the trailer ready to move. The movers showed up here shortly after nine and it was gone two hours later! The porch still remains, they are coming to get it in a week or two. 

After lunch I left the kids with Grandma and I headed out to help sort calves to sell. We ended the day with Chinese food and drinks. I'm absolutely beat and ready for bed. But so so so very happy to have the trailer gone! Hope you are all having a fantastic wknd.

Autumn sky

Beautiful view in the corn field and pasture behind our house. I would have a better view if it wasn't for that honkin dirt pile at the back of the house. Still gorgeous nonetheless!

Thanksgiving 2013

This was a much anticipated weekend for me (us). I feel like my husband and I have both been going opposite for a few weeks now. We both get up around the same time usually and then we haven't really been seeing him till 9 or 10 at night. So I have been eagerly awaiting this weekend and even more so the moment I knew the crop was complete. It has been great. Friday night we went to a wedding in town here, it was beautiful! Although it was supposed to be outside it got moved indoors bc of the rain. Here's Ali all dolled up for the Wedding.

 Saturday I puttered away with odd jobs and then went to my brothers for his birthday cake. He turns 25 on Tuesday. I really enjoyed hanging out with my family. Sunday we actually had two family gatherings to be at for lunch, so we chose my side this time. Can't be everywhere! It was in my Aunt and Uncles barn and it was beautifully decorated!!!

Thanks to my cousin Sonya for the above and below pictures.

Had Dad over for supper and he even brought a saskatoon pie for dessert! Mmmmmmm. Today we got a lot of odd jobs done around home that have been on the to-do list awhile. One of them being digging up and bagging all our potatoes that we planted at my Dad's place. When all was said and done we probably have about 15 sacks. Dad kept some for himself as well. Needless to say, I don't think we will be buying any this winter ;)

Tanner was a great little helper when it came to bagging the potatoes. He loves to help (for now anyways).

All in all we had a spectacular weekend and I have been savoring every moment. I am sooooo Thankful for my Husband, my children, all our family, our health, our home, our lifestyle, our friends and so so so much more. We are so blessed.
