Kolin Turns 5!

Last Saturday we had a birthday party in H'ville for Kolin. I can't believe he's already 5. In 9 days he'll celebrate his 6th Christmas! He had a great time at his party. He said what he liked the best was opening presents and eating cake. I was proud that he shared his new toys with his brother a friend, Ian. Of course there were many to choose from. Today we met Konrad for lunch and had Kolin's official birthday lunch at one of his favorites, Captain D's. And I even let him get the normally-off-limits-loaded-with-sugar-and-fructose-syrup red strawberry drink. I figure if you can't pick out your own drink on your birthday what kind of birthday is it? Tonight we Skyped with Grammie T. and Bonka all the way up there in Washington. Kolin opened his gift from them while we were on the video call. I think he has enjoyed his birthday celebrations.

New Barn

In case you haven't been out to see our new barn, here are a couple of pictures, front view, back view and a picture of Kash's new house, made to match the barn of course.

Putting up the Christmas Tree

We finally got our tree up. We delayed
putting it up a little bit so it wouldn't be brown by Christmas when all the Kaul's arrive.

Me wearing the tree *skirt*.

We got our first snow of the season. Not much compared to some, but it made a beautiful morning here at the Rocking K Ranch.
