Santa on the Square

After waiting in line for almost 2 hours in freezing temperatures, we got to see Santa. I think their noses are as red as Rudolph's!

His Name is "Rango!"-No wait....It's "Denver"!

After 11 long weeks, our family has  finally chosen a name for our new puppy! His name is "Denver"!  Daddy couldn't live with "Rango" and Mommy's favorite ("Dash") was eliminated out of fears he would get called "Dasher", like the reindeer!  The poor guy has no idea WHO he is right now, so I just hope we can quickly acclimate him to his new name!

County Fair

We just completed the horse riding portion of this year's county fair.  The weather was beautiful and everyone had a blast!  Seward's county fair only offers two English riding classes so both girls decided to don some Western riding gear and participate in the Western classes and games.  Both horses and girls were a "bit" confused at times, but overall they were really glad they participated.  The most complicated part of switching back and forth is the steering because in Western  you "neck rein" (one handed) and in English you "direct rein"(two handed).  Gracie and Gemma earned ribbons of all colors throughout 14 different classes so while they didn't take all blues and purples, both kids and horses learned a lot!  Here are a few of my favorite shots or click HERE for all of Day 1 and HERE for all of Day 2!

Storm Chasers

My little storm chasers camped out on Grandma and Grandpa's lawn this evening to witness quite an amazing storm cloud display. We kept checking our phones but there were no tornado warnings so we hopped in the car with Uncle John to get a closer view. Before we knew it, the mountain of clouds was right on top of us!

Nyla's First Bite of Sweet Corn!

Thanks to Mark and Liz Owens for sharing their delicious sweet corn! This was Nyla's first time to try it and she absolutely loved it! After we pried Grandma's piece out of her hands, she enjoyed two more of her own.  Oh, and that's her new bike helmet. She wouldn't take it off so I just left it on her all afternoon! The way she climbs, I'm thinking we might just make it part of her daily attire.

We Bought Nyla A Horse Today!!

Aunt Karen, Patty and I traveled all the way to Lincoln with the horse trailer today to buy Nyla a new horse! Haha!!! Well, we actually went to look at a real horse but first stopped off to pick up a "Today's Kids Rock-n-Bounce Pony" I purchased for Nyla on Craig's List. Couldn't pass pass up the photo op!

Mush Brain

I am wondering if in 10 years I will have a brain left to ponder life with 5 children at this stage.  I was solo at bedtime tonight because Scott had to help put up hay at the farm.  Within a 5 minute period, Nyla needed a diaper change, jammies on, bottle made, story read and put to bed, Marshall needed a bath and stories, Gemma wanted a cut on her finger boiled out with hydrogen peroxide (which had me worried because a farm cat scratched her pretty deep), Gracie was waiting for me to get her some Mucinex(she has me worried with a wet cough), and Luke comes into the room screaming at the top of his lungs that his eyes are burning and he can't see!  Seriously??? What could be in his eyes that could be burning so bad??  Oh but wait! He and Marshall just finished playing with two slimy tree frogs on the back deck!  As the burning became worse instead of better, I started to wonder if I should take him to the ER or first try to Google whether the slime on a tree frog would irritate your eyes. For a moment I thought my head would surely explode!  But in the end, Luke's eyes stopped stinging, Gemma's finger got rinsed, Gracie got her Mucinex, and Nyla and Marshall got to bed with no stories. I just don't remember how!
