My youngest brother, Jason turns 27 today!!! Here he is with Dylan at his wedding 3 years ago!!!

I wasn't super happy when he was born, as I was really wanting a sister since I already had a brother. But, I knew if I waited long enough, he would come in handy!!! And that day has come............. :-)Here he is helping put on trim on in the basement.

He re-did all of his house a couple months ago, so he was in the mode of doing trim so he brought his tools up and helped us!!

So I promised pictures of my basement........here's just a little sneak peak.... I think it turned out great.

Happy Birthday Jason!!! And thanks for all you help in our basement!!!

Kitchen Helper

Not only do I have a helper outside but he also likes to help in the kitchen!!! :-)

Here he is rolling out some cookies!!

We had lot of fun cookie cutters...his favorite was the sheep and the carrot!

He didn't eat a very good lunch after we got done...don't know why?!?!!?

And he even helped decorate them!!!

Thanks Dylan for all your help!!! :-)

I always love to have some projects to work on. Right now I have started my yearly scrapbooking gift for the senior football boys. I have 4 scrapbooks to get done before graduation!!!

My other project is working on a new cookbook for our church. It's been since 1978 since we've had a cookbook done and it's all out of print! It's been quite the project typing all the recipes in on-line but have I a great committee helping me with it!!!

Dylan's main project lately is keeping these darn calves in!!! I think they get out just so Dylan can chase them right back in!!!

I also have been working on finishing up painting my basement and also working on my back patio outside!!! Not quite done with either yet, so pictures of those will have to wait a little while!!!

Field Trip

Today Dylan got to go with Grandma and her kids on a field trip to the hospital for their Teddy Bear Clinic. All the kids have to bring a teddy bear or some sort of doll or stuffed animal with them.
Here is Dylan getting checked out first......yep, they heard a heart beat!! :-)

Next it was George's turn! George got hurt and broke his arm, so he got a cast!!! We can't take the cast off until "church day", Dylan said!!! :-)

Mommy wasn't able to go along today, as I had an appt. but he had a wonderful time! Thanks to Grandma and all her helpers for taking Dylan!!! :-)

Lawn Boy

I have quite the lawn boy!!! He trims the bushes and trees in our yard....

He even loads up the clippings and hauls them away.....

We had a calf get out and he chased it....

And he even got the calf back in.....

And then went right back to work..........

Such a wonderful helper!!!! And he had all this done by 11:00 this morning!!! :-)
