How We Spent New Year's Day

Happy 2010!!
It is so hard to believe we are embarking on 2010. As so many of my friends have said, it seems like we were just preparing for Y2K. That was yesterday, wasn't it?
Well, for New Year's Day, hubby and the kids built a neat tepee. They built a similar one back in 2008 and decided it was time to do it again.
The kids love their tepee!

Putting pine straw on it:

Oops - an escapee!

K.C. supervising from the picnic table:
(I wonder what she is thinking?)



This poor lizard was struggling to cross an old bale of straw. I think he was extremely cold...so I picked him up and put him in the sun. Poor fellow - I think the cat got his tail.


A had to check him out:



Sam was toting his toy around:



then decided to stop and tear it to pieces:




A decided it wasn't too cold to make mud pies. Daisy keeps her company:

Happy New Year!


From our family to yours, we hope 2010 proves to be a wonderful, blessed year for everyone.
Hopefully I'll have a barn update soon...no progress since well before Christmas. Hubby's friend is supposed to come over tomorrow to work on the last set of doors. Keep your fingers crossed!

Looks like a great time was had by all. I think your girl and my girl could get into some serious trouble together!
