Were still rocking on

Well were still rocking on. Weve been busy but were having fun.

Still rocking on with karate. Daddy has joined back in classes but of course I cant get pics of that.  They go to class together and me and Dakota stay home.  Dallas has been teaching daddy his next few katas and he is learning really fast. My man can do anything if you ask me.   photo IMG_20131107_183922_447_zps8e87e2f2.jpg  photo IMG_20131107_183909_475_zps234c7e19.jpg

Opening Day of gun season we all split up and went to different blinds. Dallas went with Daddy, Dakota was in his favorite blind and I was in my Tajmahal blind.  It was cold. I had my heater but I only turn it on long enough to get the chill out and turn it back off.   photo IMG_20131123_092111_363_zpse04db90f.jpg  photo IMG_20131123_095456_815_zps43427cf9.jpg Only a little spike came out in my field. Go on little buddy, grow up. We went back that evening and Dakota got us a doe. David wanted to process this one himself so we quartered it up and we are going to smoke some shoulders. He cut the backstrap in steaks for me for grilling. 

I just could not wait any longer, I bought myself Ms. Kays cookbook. photo IMG_20131126_174014_184_zpscc12a901.jpg

I let Dallas loose one day and let him bake some homemade buns. He did awesome, I didnt do anything but supervise.  photo IMG_20131115_162329_373_zps1a038b1c.jpg  photo IMG_20131115_183704_201_zpsa4bb2029.jpg When we ran out, Dakota told brother he was going to have to make more. lol My little baker. 

Me and Dallas finally have deer on the wall. We got ours back from last year.  Our taxidermist stays busy.  photo IMG_20131109_193112_520_zpsd29abe46.jpg  photo IMG_20131109_194420_215_zps8c72872b.jpg We killed ours on the same day last year. He got his that morning, I got mine that evening.

This whole month we have participated in the 30 days of Thankfulness on facebook. Although I am frustrated that fb has lost alot of my posts in cyber space and I cant find them.  I will try to do the best I can to say what all Im thankful for.

First and foremost on my list I am thankful for God creating me. Im thankful for his Salvation, Mercy, Grace, Forgiveness, Protection, Provision, and Promises. Without him I could do nothing.

Im thankful for my family. We had it rough growing up. I remember when it was just me my sisters and our momma. My momma did what she had to do to take care of her girls. She sacrificed alot.  photo IMG_20131108_174927_329_zps10b2e2f5.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_154854_315_zps1e638703.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160934_417_zps58d3cd08.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160320_540_zpsb304002d.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_173237_154_zps25eb352e.jpg

Im also very thankful for my grandparents to whom I learned so much. They helped mold my early childhood years and more. While my momma was working hard providing for us, we were always with them. This is where I get all my gardening and old fashioned ways of doing things from. I miss them so much.  photo IMG_20131108_173152_798_zps0c8409ce.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_173715_448_zps28d5b230.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_173823_180_zps59c3161a.jpg

Next, Im so glad God finally brought a man in my mommas life so I could have a daddy. He took in not one but three girls at one time. Talk about glutten for punishment.  photo IMG_20131108_155729_955_zpsa18ed092.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_155958_339_zpsbef58db1.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160014_536_zpsf73be122.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160032_475_zps7caf2be1.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160047_685_zps07ca3dd8.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160337_154_zpsbfc7f522.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160423_768_zpsebdf3207.jpg  photo IMG_20131108_160555_510_zps21d35311.jpg

Next is my whole life and soul. My husband.  photo IMG_20131108_160242_287_zps80ccdd44.jpgGod knew exactly what he was doing when he brought me this man. Im thankful for his loyalty, dedication, devotion, provision, love, compassion, and his all around awesomeness. Most of all he loves me.

Then God gave me our two blessings straight from Heaven. Dakota Quentin and Dallas Quaid. They are also my life. We are learning so much as parents in this world. It is hard. My kids will make mistakes but they will learn with God and our help and prayers as parents.  photo IMG_20131108_154831_697_zps7caa03c1.jpg Im thankful were going to Heaven together as a family. I dont have pics of mine and Davids baptism but I do of our boys.  photo IMG_20131122_194659_548_zps31ced244.jpg

Im so thankful for my husbands job which always provides for us even though it may call him out of town some. I love our new home and the things we have been able to pay off.

Im thankful for my church. It is not a local hang out and I dont go to keep up with the Jones’s or catch up on the latest gossip. I go to give thanks and praise to God for what he has done for me and my family and to get not only my cup filled, but let my saucer over flow too.

We celebrated Thanksgiving with family. These kids think my boys hung the moon and just love them.  photo IMG_20131128_170722_251_zpsfa8d1a1f.jpg  photo IMG_20131128_164736_971_zpsc4848df8.jpg  photo IMG_20131128_164955_356_zpsaba89dcb.jpg  photo IMG_20131128_143300_760_zps1a0fd4d8.jpg  photo IMG_20131128_143314_317_zpse46aab1d.jpg

This has been a good weekend. It was opening day of Duck Season. This is what Dakota lives for every year. His eyes are always to the sky. I told yall hes been blowing a duck call since he was 7 mths old. He traded his pacifier in for it. photo IMG_20131115_213116_538_zpsb3fac8a0.jpg Daddy and Dakota went by theirselves this weekend because it is so crowded and me and Dallas would never be able to compete with 30 something experienced duck hunters. They are having a blast so far.  photo IMG_20131129_164543_739_zpsa647739e.jpg  photo ResizedImage951385766516598_zps52ccc705.jpg  photo ResizedImage951385853769200_zpsd20ab845.jpg  photo 996034_10200706537455700_1570400246_n_zpsced5cabe.jpg Daddy is going to take Dallas during the week so it will not be crowded and he has a better chance. Hes got to practice his calling. 

While they are gone, me and Dallas are getting our Christmas groove on. I have waited all year to decorate since this is the first Christmas in our new home. I also wait til after Thanksgiving til I decorate. So yesterday we got out all the stuff and started decorating. We will have to wait til the boys get home to decorate the tree cause we are going to get a live one this year. We decorated a few things. I got my manger scene out.  photo IMG_20131129_181250_078_zpsc650e74c.jpg I will take pics as I go and post them when were done or maybe as progress goes. I want plenty of bows and garland this year. We always start our movies too and make treats, so last night we made cake in a mug. You can google it for the recipe.  photo IMG_20131129_201948_537_zps6c46d546.jpg

I have a wreath from my other grandmother and I fixed it up.  photo IMG_20131129_180453_365_zpse2365e0b.jpg

I have a Christmas village that finally after 11 yrs I got to put it back up. Ive never had the extra room to put it up.  I will be adding to it and take pics.

Well, its time for us another movie so I guess im going to sign off for now.

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.
