A couple pictures~

This was a nice day and not quite as run around-ish as yesterday was! :)

I soooo much want to show pictures of Andrew's new, used pickup that he brought home tonight, but I think he should have the privledge of posting about it first, so, sorry, you'll have to be patient. Perhaps he'll have time to blog on Saturday...?

Mother took this picture of the bales Dad and I moved in yesterday. They look pretty disastrous currently, as my dad hasn't had time to stack them yet. They do make a really nice place for our barn cats to crawl around in and find mice this way though!

I spent most of my afternoon in decorating this cake for our friend's 30th wedding anniversary that's tomorrow. Mrs. K. requested a covered wagon going into a valley, with mountains surrounding it and a few Sego Lilies and some gulls. The oxen look kind of fake, but I was happy with how the rest of the cake turned out. Here is the end result:

I have a birthday cake to do tomorrow for another friend, (I need to go take it out of the pan right now....Be back in a minute....)

I'm back... We had family prayer in between there too, as we wanted to pray together before my dad headed out to bale alfalfa. He'll be out for a few hours he thinks. That sure makes me appreciate my nice, soft bed all the more! Speaking of which, I think I'll post this and crawl in...

I've been so busy with our farm this week, since we (my sister and I) had to do extra work because my other sister and brother were away!!!!
Hopefully it'll be better this week, and I'll have more of a chance to keeping in contact with you!
