Who says women can't use power tools?

Today was working on the barn day. The temperature was in the 60's and beautiful! We finished one entire side as you see here. One of these days April, Larry and Bob will be able to sleep here rather than at our neighbor's barn. Pictured above are Kevin - our neighbor, Jeff - my husband and me along with the finished side of the barn.

This "Faith" is from our dear neighbor. She made it for me this past Christmas. When we were gone and she was watching our house she took note of some colors. It proudly sits on our mantle. The Bibles belong to my husband and I. I just thought they made the perfect addition to the photo.

Meet Colorful... He's the only chicken, well rooster, we have left after a very hungry coyote ate the other 13 chickens! Our middle son named this one as he does have pretty feathers! We will get more chickens to replace them but want to do some changes to our coop. This will probably have to wait until the weather get s a little warmer!

Well, this is my shot at a night time moon. It just looked awesome. Too bad this photo doesn't do it justice! It was too cold to keep trying for a better shot!

This is my oldest son in red. It was his second basketball game this year. I'm not sure if he was bored, coughing or saw something going on with the ball on the other end of the court. Hard to tell, but thought this turned out pretty good as I have very little experience with sports photography!

This was actually taken yesterday, but since the snow is still falling today I thought it could still count :) I haven't felt well today and didn't get my camera out but if I get behind in posting I won't ever catch up! The background is an iron chair on the deck of the hotel where we stayed. Someone else in the group had taken one similar and I'd never tried it so thought this was my chance.

Hello snow and squirrel :) Since we had baby sitters for all night we spent the night in town at a great resort hotel. We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow and this little guy out our window. The snow was beautiful and this little squirrel looked so cute outside our window how could I resist the photo opportunity?

This is Flash Cadillac and the Colorado Springs Symphony. My husband and I got to go on a date last night thanks to some great friends who watched our kids all night. What an awesome treat and blessing! Thanks C&M! It was so nice to get away and reconnect! We had some pretty awesome seats to this concert. We were in balcony side seats 1 & 2 right above the stage. No heads to block our view. This band has some history both as they are about to celebrate their 40th anniversary but also because one of the guys in the band used to work for us in our other business. If you enjoy good 'ol rock and roll music as well as some good slow dancing ballads you should check them out.
