*there's only a few gory pictures! look at your own risk if you wanna keep eating beef!
It happens every year...and I know it's coming, and it kinda makes me a little sad, but then when I bite into that juicy steak with amazing flavor, I totally forget about these fuzzy cows and what happens to them!  77 was my favorite cow this year...he was the most mellow and curious of the bunch..he even let me pet him a few times...
That's a good lookin' beef... 
 And here is how you make a 1/2 a beef!  With a sawzall!  Boss-man is admiring his handy work!
 Tagging the halves...
 My last picture with 77...goodbye ol' friend!
I don't think Boss will miss them as much!

Hanging Wire

Brian needed to get wire to his drill press so he got to work last weekend....this backhoe basket he built has been so handy!  It gets even the highest places!
 I was designated backhoe driver! It was chilly!

I know I know I have a little banner obsession...I can't stop making them!  They just add so much to my mantle!  This time in the spirit of Thanksgiving I thought a burlap 'thankful' banner would do just perfectly!

The Curious Case of Cellulitis

Last Sunday morning when I called Brian from Cle Elum to tell him I was headed home he said he couldn't walk and was in intense pain (like a 10 on the 0-10 pain scale)....I ofcourse told him to call his parents and have them take him to the ER....which he did and its a good thing.  We started at the ER in Quincy where they gave him pain meds (lots of them) and then took us by ambulance to Wenatchee...Brian even as doped up as he was on pain meds was mad that we didn't get to turn the lights on or go fast in his ambulance ride...haha!  We hung out in the ER in Wenatchee and then were moved to the hospital and stayed the night and most of the next day.  The only thing they can figure is whats called cellulitis....which is infection of the soft tissue...random...everyday has been better then the last and the redness, swelling, and pain is all going down with anti-biotics and rest.  It took about a week but we are back in business and rockin' and rollin'.

Fun with Sarah

This last weekend I met Sarah up at Suncadia (which is a beautiful resort in Cle Elum) for a wedding!  It was an absolutely beautiful day and we had a blast.  Best part was the bride got us our own room so we got to stay the night!
 They even rented a photobooth.....oh the fun you can have in a photobooth!

Barn Wood

The other day Ashley, Payton, and Rigley (Ashley's Dog) made the trek to Lind to gather some wood from Josh and Lyndenn's barn. We have lots of fun projects planned for this wood so stay tuned!  Sadly, Lyndenn wasn't home, but Josh was kinda enough to help us get started and even secured our load when we left.  Thanks Josh! Payton was armed and ready with a crowbar!
In one of the barns was a friendly ol' owl.  He started at us for awhile.  
Payton's awesome picture taking skills!

Spokane- Girls Weekend

Last weekend a few of the gals went to Spokane for a little shopping, dinner at the melting pot, and a little dancing at the Piano bar, and some people watching since it was Halloween weekend! We had a lovely time.  We stayed at the Davenport which is always a nice time!
 Here we are about to feast on some cheese!
 Lyndenn and I
 Ashley and ME!
 Here's Nicole and I gawking at this giant spider balloon...

Trick or Treat

Bring on the trick or treaters!  One of the advantages of living out in the country is that the only trick or treaters I get are people that I know. Which means I get to give things like popcorn balls, like in the old days when we were kids!  I love this monster cookie bowl!  I had 7 trick or treaters!  Yay!
