As you can see, Jack Frost paid another visit to Burlington overnight. Even though it's cold, it's beautiful. The frost builds up overnight when we have fog. Snow is in the forecast for the next few days. It is amazing country.

The kids had a blast. Preschool through sixth grade were all involved and the performance lasted two hours. Julia enjoyed playing several parts and Tyler got his picture in one of the local news papers in a role as a Russian Baker.

These pictures represent a typical winter drive from Burlington to Cody (about a 35 mile drive one way). As you can see, we had received a little snow a day or two before this. The temperature at the time the pictures were taken was up into the teens from subzero weather.

Nice Huh! What do you think of this deer. He is pretty typical for the area. I found him about twelve miles from the house. Did I shoot him? I wish but unfortunately no. I found him next to the road where he had been hit by a car. I did keep the antlers a nice 4X5.

Our Thanksgiving day has been full of thanksgiving. We had plenty of good food to eat, a roof over our heads, shelter from the cold, and each other. The kids could not wait. Just after we finished cleaning up dinner, the kids got busy putting up the Christmas tree while watching Christmas Specials. It has been very fun.

Julia's sixth grade class is learning all about inventors and inventions. Each student had to come up with their own invention and after brainstorming a bit, Julia decided on the Pet Pole. Good for catching dogs and cats on a fishing pole. Watch this video and enjoy!

Click on the video clip above to watch Robber Birds (Gray Jays) raid our camp.
Working for Big Horn County spraying weeds in the Big Horn National Forest has its advantages. Sheila, Julia and Tyler came up and camped out with me for a couple of days. While camping, we made some new friendships. Gray Jay Birds came into camp after Julia and Tyler started to feed them. As you can see, they warmed up to the kids well. Some people call them robber birds because they will take all the food they can carry off.
