Christmas 2012

Kelsey is the picture taker in our family....She does such a GREAT job.
Our Christmas was captured by her camera on her blog....that being said, I will put her blog info and you can look at our Christmas through her blog.  Thanks Kelsey!

Everyone got new cowboy hats and boots.
 (those who wanted them anyway...why would you want anything else?)

Some already had cowboy boots from last year so...they got different shoes.

Be looking for a nice cowboy picture at the farm this summer!!!

Halloween Party Oct 2012

 We had so much fun...we ate lots of fun food, played fun games, had a hay ride in Grandpas trailer, and partied until it was late at night.

We froze a glove with water for the ice cube and put it in Hawaiian punch.  Looks spooky, huh!

Cooke City August 2012

 Rilla and her new Orange Shirt and new Pink Gun...hilarious...No one will shoot me and I can't shoot anything else either. 
 Fun in the mud...mud 4-wheeling after rain...funnest thing to do at Cooke City.
 Clear the river of debris...using the truck and 4-wheelers.  This is the working crew.
 Horse riding or what!!  The kids were so cute riding this year. 
 The Great "John Wayne" Hawkins on a horse...My Hero!
 His birthday...just like every year we are at Cooke City for his birthday.  He is getting up there.
 Cleaning the stove pipe...long stove pipe.
 Hike to Lake pretty.
 Cutie family at the falls.
 Badmiton competitions in the fun and lots of room.
 H showing Grandma how to play games on the Ipad...
Catching the soot from the stove pipe....BE CAREFUL and DON'T FALL.

Cooke City is really a fun place...All the kids came to visit this year.  They brought their inlaws and other side of the family and it was so fun.  It was fun to get to know them better and enjoy loving them too!  We did lots of work and did lots of playing.  We enjoyed Eric's friends from school (semester abroad to Jerusalem) and we ended up hosting 56 people in the month we stayed here.  How is it then that I brought  home more food than I went up with??  When we just seems to grow. 
I am so thankful for family and in-laws, and friends, and relatives, and just everyone and love them all.

Bahamas Trip

So, I get a week break from school and we were going away. I always say that but it seems like we are so excited to go away excited to come back home. I think I was made that way. Sorry to say....but, there is no place like home! We did have a great time and enjoyed the ocean and nice weather.

Christmas Cactus 2012

So my Mom gave this christmas cactus to me years ago when she moved from her condo. I have been taking care of it for years...she took care of it for grandma Jackson took care of it for years...or was it our neighbor, Mable. Whatever...this plant is like over 50 years old. I have given starts of it to my children and they are taking care of it for years.

It is so beautiful! I love the feeling it gives me to water and take care of it...the memories of my Mom...I love and miss her. Many generations of loving beautiful plants.

Thank you ...Jackson women!
