Ready set go…..

After the holiday weekend I was geared up to get a bunch of work done.

My big studio on top of Junior cheer it was a very very busy summer.

With delivery of Junior Cheer it warmed my heart to see the smile on Zoe’s face. The uniforms were a huge hit.

Luckily for me the epidurals helped my low back. Kansas was such a trooper going back and forth every two weeks for a couple of months.

Mikaila’s volleyball team was coming through Pie Town heading to a tournament in Roswell. We organized a spaghetti lunch and pie for the girls.

The girls really enjoyed their adventure.

We drove to Roswell to join in on the fun. We found little green men everywhere.

Martin picked the perfect room.

Lol one of the last two rooms.

But it work good as Martin, Jamie and I brought work.

It was a pleasure to be able to take the time to watch Mika play.

Unfortunately we have not been able to watch anymore games.

And now it’s time to get ready for Pie Festival. With taking on the souvenir shack Martin was busy organizing everything as I worked. I was able to squeeze in the special Pie Queen apron.

Martin, as I have been working so hard, as been building the Pie Rat.

He has worked so hard and it was finally coming together.

Company was coming. Special friends.

Miss Paula brought her sewing so we could sew together. It was so nice having a sew buddy.

Then for 5 days Kevin helped Martin put the finishing touches on the Pie Rat. Such stud muffins.

It was time to take her down the road.

Kevin brought his hot rod and it was so cute seeing these two go down the road.

Kevin calls his hot rod the Donkey so Martin recreated him a special shirt.

After some issues with the motor Martin got her back running again. So we took her out to get Pie. It was so much fun watching heads turn as you go down the road.

With fall here and winter approaching it’s time to get back into working on the house. My schedule is steady so it looks like finally weekends off.

Martin has been helping neighbors with their solar problems. I think he is the one to call when solar help is needed. It does his heart good knowing that these friends are safe and running right.

Till next time…..

It’s been a long time…..

I am so sorry that it has been so long since my last blog.

The kids came up for Fourth of July and it was a weekend of fun.

We entered the local parade. Brought out the old John Deere and grandpas old trailer. Martin had to replace the floor so the children could ride without being like Fred Flintstone.

With a good looking man at the wheel we were ready.

We tossed out candy and beads. What was the most important thing is the kids had a blast.

So did Grammie and Papa.

Cozy cousins!!!

Crazy Kansas!!!

We spent the evening shooting these little lighted rockets.

Shoot, run, shoot again, run again. Repeat. Wore us out.

This beautiful color could be found in our greenhouse!!

Card games are always happening. A little war anybody.

The next morning we decided to hike the ridge just outside. This was so steep.

But everyone climbed with care.

We found an old 5 gallon paint lid. Well it was an old paint lid. Now it’s a piece of art that will have a home outside as soon as we can get to landscaping.

Our bottle stock was getting out of control so more hands made quick work to organize the mess.

Always find time to do a little target shooting. We found a real nice range in Quemado. It gave Papa ideas of building our own range.

Ping goes the metal targets.

Of course we have to get pie.

It’s always nice to visit our old family table.

Then off to play at the Pie Town playground.

Then it’s back home to Pass the pigs.

Oink oink!!!!

The boys are always up for more shooting.

Well Tanner decided to practice being a cowboy in his socks.

It’s always sad when the family has to go but their life in the concrete village must continue on.

Love our family.

Till next time……
