January 2019

Wow, a lot has happened since the last time I posted anything on here!!!

I'll start with my good news that Matthew David joined our family on January 20th! He's gorgeous and healthy and he's probably the loudest of all of my babies!

The other baby news to share is Amy had Colette Suzanne back in September and Cydne had Aubree Renee in October.

Christie is due late next month but she's so big she looks like she's due sooner. The pregnancy is going good for her and I can't even begin to say what a blessing that is!!!

Our really unexpected news that I will share is that Macy came back to us last August. We're really happy to have Macy and her kids home again and she's committed to staying this time and is expecting a baby in April. Things did not work out for her at home so she reached out to us and after a lot of prayer and discussion we welcomed her home.

Yes, that means five wives in the house and I cannot even begin to say how there will NEVER be a sixth!!!

I really missed Macy so I'm happy she's home.

Steve is doing well and he's got a lot of work going on and that's a good thing. I know a lot of people don't like President Trump but we're doing much better since he became President. We had a number of problems with regulations about water on the ranch that are now gone and that's huge for us.

Chinese tourists are a problem along the road. They see the bison and then come over the fence to get close and take pictures and we've had to chase them off a few times. We even had a bus come the whole two miles up our road to the house! Crazy!!! I know it doesn't get in the news a lot but these people are getting hurt up this way quite a lot. They don't understand that not all of the West is a national park. I'm hoping there will be fewer of them this summer.

We're looking at adding to the house and that's going to be a big project to make a log home bigger. Steve is saying maybe next year (2020) we'll get started on that. I know we need the space but I really hate all the noise and dirt and dust that you get when you tear up a house.

I haven't been on email or much of anything else for a while. We had problems with our internet and then it's just been so busy with so many things. It's hard to get time to do things like write on here and then write to everyone. I am sorry to all of you who are overdue for emails from me!!!

Our orchard is doing great and we're getting a lot of apples and stonefruits every year. Our few peach trees are doing okay even though this really isn't peach country. The cherries are doing great.

I'm looking forward to spring and getting the garden going again. Our garden for the house is four acres now and that seems a lot but we sell the excess and then the culls go to feeding the animals. Can't even tell you all how much I am looking forward to a salad!!!

I had to add moderation to the comments on here because I had a lot of spam messages getting posted in Arabic. Things like pest control and gay pornography. So sorry I had to do that but it does make me get on here more often!

I have a huge bison stew going right now and need to get back to it. I hope you all have a wonderful 2019!
