Guess dogs like the Internet too.

I was working on my on-line classes and left to go get something started for dinner. When I came back Jake was sitting at my computer watching the screen. This crazy dog thinks that he is one of the kids.

The deer were back!

They didn't come up to the house today. Instead, they stayed across the street in the neighbor's back yard.

Can't believe...

...I didn't have my camera ready. A 4-point buck was just minding his own business walking past our house when the dogs went wild barking. He seemed confused about where the noise was coming from, so he walked right up to our front window. The window is tinted so we can see out from the inside but you can't seen in from the outside. I have never been so close to a live deer and thank goodness the window was between us. I am so bummed that I didn't get a picture.

Another Semester!

I started another semester this week. Only 5 more to go. I think that it is going to be much better than last semester. I am taking Developmental Psych, Human Sexuality, Scientific Study of Foods, and Photography. I was also placed on the President's Honor Roll for last semester. James has been very busy with work. He is in Denver, CO this week and will be in Williston, ND next week. Tyler got a part in the High School's production of Oliver Twist. He has practice every afternoon after school and is working very hard. Kayla has discovered the phone and now we can't keep her off of it. Sierra and Brooklyn have just been having fun being kids. They go through a ream of paper every other week just drawing, coloring, and writing stories. It has been very cold here. Our high today was 10 and this morning it was so cold that it froze the fog and looked like it was snowing. I hope that all of you are warm and enjoying your new year.

Family Photo

We had a family picture done for the first time in about 9 years. Now I remember why we haven't had one done since. It takes forever to get everyone to smile at the same time, no glare on glasses, and hair out of the faces. This is the one that we finally just settled on.
