Life at the Clines

I need to back up to Christmas.  Here is the Cline grands and great grands on Terry's side of the family.

 Dave and Parla were here for two weeks.  I enjoyed interacting with these precious little ones over Christmas.

 Brighton was so pleased with herself that she could
 climb this tree all by herself.

 Here are some of our activities over Christmas.
 Mother and Melissa

 Settlers and Rook

 The men are practicing their rook skills.
 Terry with the in-laws.

Hiking up Lover's Leap.

The Snow Storm
We are getting ready for the storm by putting extra braces in the two turkey houses.

 I love making doughnuts when it snows. 
Melissa was a big help in this process.

 The men are walking to the turkey house because
 the snow is too deep for the four wheeler.

Our boys came over and spent two nights to help with shoveling snow off the turkey house roofs.

The picnic table gives you an idea of how deep the snow was.

While the snow flakes fell Melissa and I sewed.

Home Sweet Home

Life as a Quilter....
Pretty cool gift from Melissa.

One day a month I get to spend a day quilting 
with the Bodacious Bumbling Bees.

 Trying my hand at a fiber arts quilt.
