We just received confirmation that India's mother Kenya will be having babies! (Finally! I guess that the third time is the charm... we have been trying far too long to be funny any more.) That means another little stinker to fill our house with puppy kisses and wrinkly skin. We are excited and can't wait to have her home. Kenya is due on or around March 9th and we'll just have to wait to see what the new little one looks like!

So I am finally writing, again. And to start with, it has been an absolutely crazy winter. (Cue run-on sentence:) The work at the bank has been long and seeing as how I work at a financial establishment, very high "drama", and with the delight that is Ty's commute and the daily trauma of his classroom, then to run home and quickly feed and water our horses in the dark, in our pasture that is completely inaccessable in the THREE FEET of snow that has fallen on the ground and purchase hay at night, in the dark, when all the hay is going to Japan or China, with horses that are dropping weight and wont even let us touch them because of all the HUNTING (ie people, dogs, a battery of gunfire with untrained unaccustomed prey animals) that is going on IN THEIR PASTURE and not to mention the overall engulfing decision process that has a deadline of a month from now, in which I have to decide my future career from among my many majors and ridiculous number of minors. So after all that, sorry that we have dropped off the face of the planet. We both have new resolve to be better about communicating with family and friends.

I am just going to include a couple of the pictures of our lovely snowy house. The second picture down is actually of us driving in the middle of a white-out. There actually is a road there, and a huge set of irrigation lines just to the right of said invisible road, I think you can barely see the tops of the wheels. And I will try to update more. ASAP.
