Kaden Michael Feeler

Here is a few pictures of my cousin Kristen's little boy, Kaden. He is a cute little guy and wish we could see him more, they live in Arizona with my Uncle Russ. Too cute of pictures not to share... enjoy!

Weekend Recap

Friday Mike and I headed to a friend's house for a fish fry and to play some pitch.

Saturday I headed home early to attend my great Uncle Merle's funeral. It was a nice service and I thought the preacher did a good job describing his life and stories. That evening Mike came over and we watched The Blind Side. I highly recommend seeing this movie. Sandra Bullock did a good job playing the part of Michael's (Big Mike) guardian (or adopted mother).

Sunday I woke up to the aroma of bacon. Mike had fixed us bacon and egg sandwiches. Made a mess with the grease, but it's the thought that counts. I think it must be a guy thing as my dad always gets grease everywhere when he cooks. That afternoon we watched the race and Desperate Housewives. I believe I've turned Mike into a TV drama person. He loves to watch Desperate Housewives and Army wives, I think he gets more excited about a new episode than I do.

Legends of the Fall

Over the weekend we watched Legends of the Fall. It was a very addicting movie to watch.

Colonel Wlliam Ludlow and his three sons (Samuel, Tristan and Alfred) live in the Rocky Mountains of Montana, USA, at the beginning of the 20th century. When Samuel brings with him his fiancé Susanna, the fellowship of the 3 brothers is about to be broken. The eldest son, Alfred, falls in love with Susanna, and she falls in love with Tristan. Thing becomes worse when the three brothers decide to join the first World War in Europe in 1914, despite their father's objection. The bond of the brothers is about to be broken forever, and so is Colonel William's heart.

Saturday on my way home from Mike's house I was greeted by these three deer starring at me. I had barely noticed them since they blended in so well with mother nature. We used to have several deer in our field almost every night until my dad put up a fence for our horses. It was always a routine for us when we got home late to shine our headlights towards the top of the field to see how many deer we could see.

Weekend Recap

Friday I met Mike in town at St. Elizabeth where we headed to the local bar where they had a DJ party. Didn't stay very long and headed back to Mike's house.

Saturday I headed back home to take some photo's in St. James for our Newcomers magazine. I wasn't impressed with the photos since it was a dreary day. St. James is a beautiful town, for next year's I will try to remember to take fall pictures for the cover and inside. Here is two cover possibilities... let me know what you think! I'm not entirely sold on either one and knowing me I will probably change it at the last minute.

That evening I took Mike out to eat for Valentine's at Matt's Steakhouse. I tried to get a reservation last week and they were already BOOKED! Just my luck, so I knew no matter where we went to we would have to wait anyways. Our food was very good, they are a little on the expensive side, but it was well worth it and worth the wait. Afterwards we got a few groceries and headed home to watch Grey's Anatomy recorded from Thursday night. I don't know what I would do without my DVR!

Sunday we headed to my grandma's for dinner where she made homemade Chicken and Dumplings. That afternoon Mike watched the Daytona Race while I cleaned and took a nap. Mom had fixed a heart shaped meatloaf for supper.

... and finally my shoes came in the right size from Christmas. I love them!

Love this idea!

I recently came across this tutorial online and love the idea. I plan to make one for both my grandma and grandpa for christmas. Yes it is a little early to be thinking about Christmas gifts but I would love it if all of the grandkids and great grandkids could write a fond memory they had with them. With some of us in other states it's hard to see one another, but maybe once a year.

I think this idea would also be great for a new baby with cards, little sayings you hear, words of wisdom, sympathy cards for a loved one, birthday cards & bows, wedding & baby showers... list could go on. I plan to make my own, but you can purchase one for $25 at this website.

The Bachelor

I've been tuning in every Monday night to the Bachelor. Usually I don't watch these kind of shows but this season has me hooked. I am really hoping that Tenley ends up being his fiance in the end. She seems the most genuine and down to heart even though she just went through a divorce this past year. Last night I was blown away by Ali, she was my other choice to win. Her work forced her into an unbareable decision between work and love. Which is a hard choice to make in this economy and with a 4 to 1 chance at winning in this rose ceremony. I believe she would of made it to the final two.

The previews for next week shows Jake getting a phone from none other than..... ALI! So this had me stumped on what was to happen next. I always want the scoop even if that means spoiling the end so I did some snooping online and well I found out who gets the final rose. I won't spoil it for everyone!

Weekend Recap

Friday I stayed home since the roads were horrible! Mom, Dad and I went to eat at Randy's Road Kill BBQ & Grill. I had a pull pork sandwich and fries. It was very good and tender. Here is a small ad I did for our paper.

The owner of Randy's Roadkill used to have a small log cabin on a trailer where he cooked BBQ in Kroger's parking lot in Rolla. Afterwards we watched Sherlock Holmes, overall it was a good movie just not as good as I thought it would be.

Saturday we watched Nathan while his mommy and daddy took Blake to see Monster Jams in St. Louis. That evening I did laundry and got my house clean before Mike came over. Once again with the weather we decided to just stay at my house and play with the baby.

Sunday Mom had gone to church early to attend Sunday School so Mike and I took Nathan to church. Needless to say I couldn't tell you one thing the sermon was about. Nathan was very good in church, a little restless, a little or well a lot of gibber gabber... overall a happy baby. After church we headed to my grandma's for dinner where she made meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy and for dessert she made blackberry cobbler! I'm glad my grandma is feeling better and able to do her tradition of cooking a sunday dinner after church. Mike and I watched the Super Bowl at my house, we're very disappointed with the commercials and the Colts not giving it their all. Mom had fixed Ham & Beans with cornbread and fried potatoes for supper.
