Treehouse Thursday, December 24, 2015 (Christmas Eve) We opened our Christmas presents this morning. Mom and Dad are building us a treehouse for Christmas. We started building it today! My Grampa helped us with our treehouse the rest of the day. In the evening we went to church. It was a candlelight service. When we got home, we fed our animals and did our chores. — By Morgyn Friday, December 25, 2015 (Christmas Day) I was going deer hunting with my Daddy but it was too foggy to go this morning. Later this morning we did work on the treehouse. I put Scooter, my rabbit, in his grass pen so he could watch us do the treehouse. We fed our animals early so we could go to MeMe and PoPo’s for Christmas. MeMe and PoPo are my Daddy’s parents, Alfred and Joy Hempel. — By Falyn Saturday, December 26, 2015 This morning it was windy and rainy. I helped my Mom make chocolate covered pretzels. It was fun! Then I did some homework on my computer. I helped make lunch. I made pea salad. Falyn made cookies for dessert. This evening, I helped my Dad clean out the bulk feeder for our yearling bulls. We put extra boards where the feed comes out because too much was coming out at one time. Now, smaller amounts will come out and the feed will stay fresher. We played board games until bedtime. — By Morgyn Sunday, December 27, 2015 Daddy sold some Brahman heifers this morning. I helped him separate them for the customer. Then I helped Mommy in the offi ce by copying the customer’s check and fi ling it for her. Before lunch, I watered and fed the quail. We raise Pharoah quail for their eggs. I brushed our new Hereford bulls we bought from Canada. They got so hot after they came here that Mommy had to clip them from head to tail. Their names are Buddy and Midgit. Now we have four bulls from Canada. They will be our new herd sires. In the evening, I watched Daddy and Grampa put the walls up on the treehouse. Next will be windows and the roof. — By Falyn Monday, December 28, 2015 This morning we sold more Brahman heifers to a new customer. I copied the check for Mom and helped her in the offi ce. In the afternoon, I fed our horses, dogs, hog, and put fresh hay in the chicken pen. We have peacocks, turkeys, ducks, and chickens in our indoor/outdoor pen. I held the baby Bantam chicks and youngest peahen to make them tame. Mom and Dad fed the bulls and heifers while I jumped on the trampoline with my boxers, Brody and Dixie. After supper I folded some laundry while Falyn and Caden Joe helped clean the kitchen. Before bed, we watched a rodeo on T.V. with Daddy. — By Morgyn Tuesday, December 29, 2015 Today Daddy worked at the fi re department so this morning we had friends over for pancakes with chocolate chips. In the afternoon we went to our friend Sarah’s house to see her animals and to go exploring. We found a Morgyn and Falyn with their friend Sarah, closely examining a spider egg sac that they found.
