Our Crazy Life.....

School is wrapping and people would think that we would take it easy and spend sometime together.. Nope.. We are Moving! That is right we are moving to a new place in the middle of December. We will be moving to St. Mary's Kansas. It will be a 30 min. drive to Topeka and 30 min. to Manhattan. The apartment is bigger and very cute! We will have an extra bedroom and it will be Jared's new Man Cave.. We will post pictures as soon as everything is in the correct spot.. :)

Merry Christmas From The Sutherland's

A Weekend Full of Kmart!

We did nothing that is worth blogging about! All we did this weekend was work and clean our apartment. We are currently looking for a new place to live and for someone to sublease our apartment. So Please keep your fingers crossed that we will find someone!

Since we did nothing this weekend but work. Barkley spent most of this time sleeping! He did have a great time on his walk with Aunt Jessie and Uncle Neil! Thanks for Taking him!

Until next Time! :)

Whirl Wind of a Weekend!

We headed back home on Friday and the weekend was suppose to be full of relaxation! Yeah Right! Friday night we visited my parents and then it was off to the Sutherland's for a night of fun! Jessica and Neil were caving pumpkins and we decided to join in on the fun! Well, then it turned into the Sutherland Vs. Lednicky Pumpkin Caving Challenge! Jessica was a lot more involved in their pumpkin then I was allowed! Jared decided that he wanted it to be perfect and I did not fit into the equation! Oh well, I had a great time snapping Pictures! We did not decide on a winner but I think The Sutherland's Won the contest!

Next up on our Whirl Wind of a weekend was a nice Saturday with My mother while Jared was in the timber checking Trail Cameras with Reid! We have a great time just hanging out and watching movies. She is doing great and We are praying she continues to get better each day! Keep Praying! Saturday night we prepared for a family Hay Rack Ride! We took enough clothes and blankets but in the end I was so happy that we did! The family decided to take the kids on a small ride and Then the Adults thought it would be a grand Idea to scare them! Here are some pictures from that night! Everyone had a great time and being with family is always fun!

The guys in the masks tried their hardest to scare the little kids. They got them to scream once but the next time the car was spotted prior to them jumping out of the woods. The kids then went to the Haunted House in Troy! It was a Happy Halloween for Everyone!

This weekend we will be heading back home to Troy. My mom had surgery yesterday and is doing great! So I will be spending the weekend relaxing with her and watching Chick Flicks.. I know it doesn't sound like much but in my crazy life it sounds Amazing. Jared is going to be hunting. I have yet to discover why this sport is so much fun but he loves it and that is all that matters.. We both enjoy our time that we get to spend at home with our family and friends. This Sunday my little cousin Avery will be turning 6 years old! I simply can not believe it. I remember the day she was born.. Wow how time flies when your having fun! Happy Birthday Avery! We Love you!

Last weekend I had the chance to spend time with Amazing Friends. Jared and I are so blessed to have such an amazing group of people in our lives.. We are so blessed!

This is Jared's deer that he killed with his Bow last Deer Season! He is hoping for a successful adventure this weekend!
