Aaron and Kristi Ewing and their twin boys, Lane and Landon invited us to a Christmas Party at their house. Kristi is the owner of Heaven's Angels, a consignment shop in town, and Aaron works for Southern Star Gas. All employees of these companies, family and close friends were invited. We had a great time. They each received Santa camo hats with their name on them, stockings and gifts from Santa. Lots of fun - hayrides, baby goats and lots of food. Lane and Landon are in Dalton's 2nd grade class. Kristi and I have been hosting their class parties. Aaron's brother, Adam was one of Jon's groomsmen. So, Jon enjoyed relaxing and chatting with an oldtime friend. Thanks Aaron and Kristi for a great evening!
Dathan and Lightening, the RAT catcher. We don't just have scrawny little mice, we have huge rats. Lightening was a blessing dropped off by my brother-n-law, Donald. He knew we needed a barn cat, but we were not informed - Until, the boys found a cat in their live traps! They were excited they caught something. Jon was telling his mother about the catch when mom started laughing. The secret was out. The cat was unhurt and she is a great rat catcher. I've seen some of her catch. Gross!
Dalton loves Papa Charlie's tractor.
Jon and David looking at the treasure. David came up with my parents to look at the farm. David killed the first rat in the barn! Good going!
My daddy bringing up his Farmall.
The boys just found out that we bought the farm. They were excited! There is sooo much to do - mowing, tearing down fences, cleaning up, building fences and sooo much more that does not include the 'ol farm house. (Excuse the order of the pics)
