"In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you".  1Thess. 5:18
Being thankful  in all things is sometimes hard, but there are many, many things that are easy to be thankful for.

Like these two boys,
and a honey like this one!

Be ye'll make your blood pressure lower!!

Happy 17th Birthday Cale

Happy 17th Birthday Calebob!

Sunday, November 17, 2013


I am mad.  Mad at parents who fail to parent their children, parents who only wish to play the role of big brother or big sister in the 
 little world they've created where everyone is out to get their spoiled rotten spawn. By allowing a child to never stand on his own for his actions and running to their constant rescue, a child is taught nothing......did we all not learn from the other, older children among us growing up?  Was that not education in the form of childhood justice.....oh noooooo, it is bullying, no child is responsible for his actions, it is always someone else's fault. 
Grow up and be a parent, you are ruining your kid!

Blessings Come in Many Forms

Bob, started off great, grew ornerier as the month went on.  His 2013 Pump Patch motto was "feed me or I'll bite you"....
We're going to work on Bob's bite.
Teeth or not, Bob is cute!!
He was a blessing.

I've know this family since the Mom and Dad were little, I really didn't know them, I knew who they were.  They came for the first time with their three little kids, they were blessings, glad I know them now. 

We hosted a family reunion, had a great birthday party and lots of fun school group field trips.  We were blessed to see lots of our aunts, uncles and cousins.

Little Heath....we're proud of his family.
They sure are a blessing to many.


Our biggest blessing came in the form of an email, from a Grandmother expressing her appreciation to us for what we do.  Above the door in the concession stand I wrote in Sharpie many years ago "Make Yourself A Blessing"  God answers prayer. She let us know that we blessed her, her grandchildren and her husband.  Thanks to each and every 2988 of you who came out, we were blessed by your presence.  We were also blessed by our family and friends who helped out in many ways, Cale didn't starve and Spencer never had to walk home from school during the month of October.  God Bless each of you!

Spencer won the Reserve Champion Limi Heifer at the Oklahoma State Fair.  He was also third best with his big Limi, Barbara Hines. We are blessed with good people who know much more about show calves than we do!  Thanks to all of you!   He is pictured here at the Fletcher Free Fair.

Calebob's 1st Auctioneering Gig

As a fundraiser the kids youth group did a labor auction, they raised about $2500.  Spencer sold well, looks like he'll be working some concrete and building fence.  Cale gets to build fence.
