Emma is sooo cute, Julia, Emma and Mikey did not stay because it was also Julia's B-day on the 22nd so they went home after the ceremony, but we stayed and went to the Keg for a very good supper.

My graduation day

I have finished my two year journey to becoming a LPN. It was quite the trip, and now I enter into the work force on Monday as a nurse. I only have one picture to start with, but when I get more time(ha ha) I will post some close ups and more family oriented pictures from my big day. It was a good day.

The best flax seed peanut butter cookies

i found this recipe on the back of a western family bag of flax seeds and I think they are the best cookies I have ever tried. Easy to make too..

1/2 c. butter or margarine
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. br. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c. peanut butter
1-1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. flax seed
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
oven @ 375 bake for 10 Min's or until golden brown. it says you should get 30 cookies, but I never got that many I did not use the egg and it turned out great still and it calls for ground flax seed but I did not do that I like the seeds whole you could ground half and leave half whole. You will not regret making these cookies unless you eat them all after they are ready.. You can't just eat one!!

the cutest ever

This is cody's funny face he learned from Douglas he
sure thinks he's cute. Douglas always gives me this look when I
am giving him trouble. Or when he wants to cheer me up if I am
feeling grumpy...

This is Jevan, Sydney, Cody and Douglas at our Christmas dinner they all get along so well and they sure look cute for this picture. Jevan and Sydney are Douglas and Cody's cousins they also live here at Rosebank Ranch.

Ice Fishing

we went ice fishing a couple of weekends ago we did not catch anything because it was so cold. we had lots of fun look at the size of ice cube Doug chainsawed out of the lake. the cold wind was blowing but the sun was shining and there was a slide out on the ice. we made snow angels and made a small fire that took the chill off.
