So much randomness!

These are the types of posts that happen when I haven't posted in several weeks.
I'm too lazy to post on the individual events like I had intended to, so they all get lumped together in a post that ends up being very random.

So first and most exciting for T and GW, Papa's goats have kidded!
My kiddos love to go play with the kid goats.
And they are pretty darn cute - the goat variety and the human variety.

Two, or was it three, I can't remember now, weeks ago, we had John Wayne's work retreat.
Fun times in the city at a hotel for a couple of nights.
We of course all had a blast!

Family date night, the night before the retreat started.

Donuts in bed, my kind of breakfast!

T and a couple of her sweet little friends!

That Monday while Daddy had meetings, me and the kiddos got to play.
We took a trip to the park, because we were having amazing January weather!
Let's see, what else is going on with us...
It's my busy season a work - trade show season.
I was away from home all week at the Colorado Farm Show.
My schedule is better this year, I just have a couple more busy weeks with shows and I think all of the rest are just going to be day trips this year.
I just finished reading {mixed with listening to, while I was on the road this week} Unbroken
Wow, wow, wow.  Usually not really my type of read.
I usually read simple stuff, not stuff that really GETS to you.
But I am so glad I read this book.
Now I want to see the movie, but I don't know if I can handle the movie.
Have you seen it yet, how is it?
Speaking of movies, my friend and I went to see American Sniper this week while we were on the road at the trade show.
Another amazing story.
War stories are not usually my thing at all, but seriously if you have any recommendations for stories as amazing as these two, let me know, because now I want to read another history or war book.
In other news, I said I wasn't going to, but I of course caved and ordered the 3D mascara.
I secretly cannot wait for it to get here.
I'm busy planning a unicorn/rainbow birthday party, actually two parties this year.
We are having a family party AND a friend party this year.
Turning 5 is a very big deal you know.
Our weekend plans don't consist of much.
A junior high basketball tournament to watch our niece and nephews.
Annie is playing in Limon, so if time allows, I'd love to bring T up to see it.
But I just realized that that would probably be Sunday night...the Super Bowl is on Sunday night.
I don't really care, at all, about the Super Bowl this year.
I can't find good reason to cheer for either team.
OK, I warned you that this post was random.
We'll try to post a little more regularly and keep it a little less random.
Have a great weekend, friends!

you are so busy! love the pix! I just read Unbroken then saw the movie. loved both. there is no way they can show all of the book's details in the way..the book tells so much more and you're left wondering how any of this occurred? the movie is amazing but just stops when he gets home....happy January!

Your family is adorable. and those baby goat pictures are so cute! Can we just make a pact that some time in this life we will meet in real life?!? LOL

I'm a little late to comment, but try "Fighter Pilot" by Robin Olds. I normally don't like that kind of book either, but loved that one. Unbroken is on my list to read. :)
