Just a few pics...

Just a couple pics to let you all know that we're still alive & well. Sorry it's been a while since the last update. I haven't been the best about getting the camera out. Busy, busy...

Joe had a control burn a couple wks ago & when he came home - I just had to get a shot of this! Do you think he needs a shower? LOL!

Happy Belated B-day Papa Jerry!

We hope your birthday was great! Glad we got to celebrate with you yesterday!
Love you...
Joe, Sarah & Peytie

(By the way... this is really sad that I didn't have a more current pic of you. We definitely need to fix that problem!)

The rest of the Christmas pics...

Well, these are the pictures I couldn't get off my camera disc. Our good friend, Jason took the disc home last night & was able to get them off! YAY! Thanks Jas!

Anyway, unfortunately they're all pretty blurry. I would imagine that had something to do with the disc error. Oh well... I'm just thankful they were recovered!

Christmas morning

The 'ONLY' thing she asked for this year! (A $3 bouncy ball!)

A visit from The GI Vrbi!

Uncle Dave, Aunt Amy & Jack Parker traveled to Palisade & stayed with us this last weekend. And boy did we have fun! Peytie & Jack played like there was no tomorrow! ('Course, they don't get to see each other NEAR as often as we'd like, so it was much needed!) They got along so well. I am absolutely amazed at how much Jack has grown & developed. Seems like he's a totally different kid since the last time I saw him... which was WAY too long ago. The weekend brought a whirlwind of activities. (A visit to see the newest addition to the Blackman family, Jacob Kent; a trip to Wauneta to watch our neice Tori 'whoop butt & take names' at her W/P basketball game and last but not least... we helped sister Heidi celebrate her 28th birthday! Ha Ha! Luv ya' sista'- but you're not foolin' us! ;o) Oh, and we did our little 'Christmas present opening' with Jack! Unfortunately, like all good things... this fun-filled weekend had to end. Peytie was very sad to see them all pack up & leave on Sunday... as were we of course!

Anyway, here are some pics from the weekend... (I surprised myself by actually getting my camera out & taking some 'kodak moments'. ;o)

I just have to say 3 words here... CUTEST. PIC. EVER. (Don't you agree?)
Thanks for coming down & staying with us guys! We had a blast! I know, it's def our turn to come visit you now!

We always miss you & love you guys!

hApPy bIrThDaY aUnT hEiDi!!

We hope you had a great day! We sure had a blast helping you celebrate!
We love you!
