You might be a Redneck…………..

Using the line from Jeff Foxworthy was the perfect way to start this today.

It is January, a time of year that is typically very cold. And when it is cold there is really not a lot to do. I could go skiing, but I am really not that in to it. What else you can do is go and watch Lawn Mower Races on the lake. That is when you take your lawn mover soup it up with a better motor, remove the deck, and  tires, and a wheelie bar. And you have got a racing mower.


Here we have races on the lake. Yes, on the lake. I do not go out on the frozen lake. Especially when you have this many cars and trucks in such a small area.DSC_0041The weather was really crappy.  It was raining. Yes, raining in January. Which made it really hard to get any really good pictures.

DSC_0010  We found a nice place to sit and be warm and dry to watch the races. Sometimes it got a little boring as you can see by my little mans faceDSC_0028 He really wanted to be out on the ice and watch. But with the rain also came sleet. And if you have ever been out when it is sleeting. It hurts really bad when it hits your face.

We still had a good time and there will be another on coming up within the next month. Hoping the weather will be better and just maybe I will go out on the ice.DSC_0035

Tasmanian Devil

See this peacefully sleeping puppy!  One would never think there was a full grown attach dog here.195

The other day my hubby told me that this peaceful puppy can not sleep with us any longer. I looked at him puzzled.

He then began to explain to me how when the alarm clock goes off she full bore runs at HIM. Not the alarm clock but him. He says teeth and all. He says she turns in to the Tasmanian Devil. Now, as he is telling me this I am laughing so hard that I have tears coming out of my eyes. He looked at me and said. I am serious she is biting me and all!!!! I could do nothing but laugh!!!!

Family Time

Friday we stayed a hotel in the city’s. It was my husbands company party.

The kids and I checked in early so we could swim in the pool and hang out in the hot tub.(no pictures due to I was not getting out of the hot tub.)


The kids got to hang out up in the room and swim at the pool while we were at the party. 


As you can see Michael was in a weird mood. He was making face the whole time.

The party was fun. Lots of fun was had. Last year I had taken a class with some of my hubby’s co-workers. I had made a comment to my hubby that one of the guys in the class gave me the first impression that he was a “DICK”.  So, how does one live this down. Of course what does my wonderful hubby tell this person. “Hey, my wife thinks your a dick.”

So needless to say his girlfriend say to me “ It’s ok, I thought he was a dick when I first meet him!” OMG, to funny. I guess after my hubby told this to him, he went to his girlfriend and asked her if she thought he was a “DICK” and was shocked to hear her say “Yes”.

So, that was entertaining to deal with at the party.


Here is a picture with me and my hubby for the

night. His wife and I exchanged name tags.



The woman in Green was me for the night. The man with

the blue collar the man I called “dick”


This woman won a big heavy Weiner.

Needless to say it was fun. We laughed a lot and

can not wait till the next get together.

Trying a new set-up for my blog

So I am using a writer tool for my blog now. I wanted to see how it worked out for me. I have been having issues with Blogger and my laptop wanting to work together on setting up my pictures and the layout of my blog.


This is a photo of the newest addition to my family.(don’t worry it is our last). This is Kilo. As you can see she is no bigger than my book.


Here she is with out the book next to her.

Well I have to say I really like the way this is working for me.

So hopefully I will blog more now that I have better control.


This weekend I had to drive to Southern MN. It was a beautiful drive. The only problem I had was I was driving. There fore I could not take photos of the churches and the landscape around me. Yeah, I know I could have stopped. But it was a long drive.
So I have this awesome camera and could not take any great photos.
So another day I will be able to.
