gotta share

 My to pool sharks.  There's a story here.... Caib and I were shooting pool while Oaklee waited her turn.  She kept coming in with her que stick and chalking up while she waited.  One time she comes in with her little stick and picks up the chalk yet again and holds it up looks closely at it and instead of chalking her stick she puts the chalk to her nose and twists....Caib couldn't resist he had to join her.
Finally her turn gets here

She and Caib played a round with their green noses...the funny part was on Oaklee's second turn she walks up to the table looks at the  set up and says, "I think I'm just gonna hit this one with my nose."

What a girl!!look at that concentration.

Random pictures of the holidays.

New years day  Braden with his dislocated collar bone

 Fixing fence. Busy hands. The best picture of Caib I've gotten in a long time.
 Trying out my new camera at the Holiday tourney at Wayne.  Warming up for the game.
 Christmas Morning. Caib is checking out his new leather tooling kit.Braden and Caib generally get about the same stuff for Christmas each year.  So when opening presents this year, we usually open in turn youngest to oldest, they were alternating back and forth and laughing about how they were taking turns being surprised.  I love their ability to laugh and enjoy our traditions.
 Chance trying out his new roller skates.  Oaklee got some as well.  They spent a lot of Christmas on their behinds but by Christmas night they were zipping all over the house on the wood floors.
 Oaklee shooting her new Rifle.  She out shot every one of the rest of us. and she even learned how to load her gun all by herself.  Oh all right Caib had to help her a little but she was just sure she hit everything she aimed at. and of course we had no evidence to prove other wise.
 Chance, on the other hand, was learning that the closer you got to the target the easier it was to hit. 
 Aubree is Daddy's girl so she is going to learn to shoot no matter what, with her new 22. 
 And here are the two boys with their new pistols.  We had them wrapped under the tree but the bullets with their stuff from Santa.  They never said a word until Dad finally grabbed the packages for them to open. Then Braden piped up with "I was wondering what the bullets were for."
We had a great Christmas!  
My favourite present this year came from my Father, He taught me, as Roger and I were shopping for Christmas this year, How truly remarkable the man I married is."  Roger's middle initial is S. and I'm starting to believe that it really does stand for Santa.  I Love him for his desire to shower gifts upon his children especially at this time of year, just as our Father desires to shower gifts on us. Sometimes all it takes is just asking and trusting.
