oh, I'd love to have me a little chicken coop like this! I wonder if there is a breed of chickens that doesn't crow before say 10:oo a.m. :)

~~Updated~ yes that is the pontoon boat floating where you would normally park when you come to the pond ! Compare the 2 photos
For you that have been down & fished with us over the summers have seen the pond very low due to the drought!! Well, looky here she up to the "rim" & with "bream" ! It was just in the late summer I would weed-eat, walk around & keep the bank under the pier good & clean! Take a look for yourself!

Well, I bought a book about a year ago "First Time Quiltmaking" SOOOO... with the help of Hobby Lobby. I am starting my first quilt! It's really their fault cause they had to go & put the holiday fabric on sale! yep, 66% off! Couldn't turn it down! Nope! I was weak! HEHE! It's a smaller quilt, called "Single-Patch" it's finished size should be a "hair" bigger than 36x48. Most of it appears to be very simple, except the "binding" or the edge. I'll keep you posted on it's progress, maybe it will resemble some geometrical shape of some kind when I'm done :) ~If it goes well I may get a call from the "Women of Gees Bend Quiltmakers" a community in south Alabama to join them on tour!
We had a wonderful visit from the Hayes clan late on Christmas Eve in between some of their stops! Miss Maddie was excited & couldn't wait for Santa Clause! We are always tickled to get to see them, that is Doc with his helmet on! He needs it cause he is always getting in to something. Emily just hangs around to see what them 2 is gonna do next!!!! Miss Maddie & me also played a few rounds of Whac-a-mole! You should've been there! Maddie had to take some pictures also, when it was your turn you had to say "CHEEZEEE & WAVE !
Christmas eve we went to my mothers, she had everything all "doodled'' up as usual. It's never quite when we all get in the same room together, Jeff now knows where my talkbox comes from! (hehahe) My mothers sister Susan & my uncle JQ were there along w/ my cousins Derrick from Key West, FL & Denise was in from Washington D.C & Shala & Herb lives here in Boaz, as you can see Shala (red glasses) had to jump in with her 2 cents while I was about to take a picture !
~We had a house full of hungry folks! We feasted on crock-pots full of homemade chili & veggie soup & all the snackin's to go along with it! We had plenty of deserts too! The little ones we so excited & helping each other with opening their gifts!

We have gotten over a great weekend & busy week! We was fortunate enough to get to go to Atlanta for the SEC championship game. It was a great game , but the Gators pulled it out in the end. It was very exciting the town was filled w/ fans from both sides & alot from other folks in the SEC. Judy& I roamed & shopped while the boys were gone. It seems like the season went by really fast this year. I hope if your team makes it to Atlanta you'll get to go! It was SO fun & alot of stuff to see & do! ~ROLL TIDE ROLL~
