rachel's big day ~ wedded bliss

rachel and weston's marriage day ~ 

it was a perfect day!  slightly cooler temps, a light breeze at about 4 miles per hour {= no mosquitos!}...  with slightly cloudy skies, and soft diffused light!  

 there's the beautiful wedding planner!

 sparkling cider for all ~ the olders and the youngers!

footnote:  and the beautiful mother-to-be wedding planner {cousin to the bride}... she got married in this same spot... in what you could definitely say less than ideal conditions {cold, rainy, windy}... but just look at the laughter and love on her face!
 just a few years ago... and the weather was {quite a bit} less than perfect on that september day, but it didn't stop this sweet couple from enjoying their special day one little bit!

a legacy of love and promise 
future generations to come.
thank you Lord, for the gift of marriage.

{New} Puppy Love ~

hi there~!

no... we are not getting another dog ~ {but i want to!}  

these are the latest pics from the litter that was born six weeks ago ~ brothers and sisters to our Georgia!

i promised to take some pics and post a few to facebook... trying to get the word out, and hopefully help find some good ranch-style homes for these sweet-tempered border collie pups! 

boy was it fun!  {i swear i could live on puppy dog kisses!} lol

now this is quite the face... {see below} i call him "yoda"  {may the border collie force be with you!}  lol!  he is quite a character... don't let the face fool ya!  he actually has two blue eyes, and you can see them much better in the last photo on the post. he has a spot on his head, too. what a handful he is going to be!  {his little nose was dirty with sawdust!}

they are sweet, friendly, and soooo funny!  i have such a good time!!  oh gosh... my hubby patiently waited while i took many, many pictures!
and take a look at this doll face ~ sweet, newborn baby calf born in the snowstorm the night before... getting warmed up in the same shop where the pups are.  i call it "early border collie training!"

some will be smooth coated, and others long. 
sam, the mom... taking it easy!  she has raised some very healthy, and good-lookin' pups.  they are so so chubby!!!  and such shiny coats. 

it was a tail-waggin' good ol' time!!!  {and yes.... they're all for sale!}  all eight!

well... weekend fun over.  time to get back to work!

spring loves ~

hi everybody ~ how's it comin' in the spring department in your 'neck of the woods?'

our weather has been just a tad bit unsteady ~just like a new born calf~
 and just as serious {at times} as a mamma cow!

the snow drifts are thinning ~ much like the long winter coat from the cattle as the fence does double duty!  

 these were all taken on easter... it was a gorgeous spring day...
 spider, the {mostly retired} old cattle horse is taking it easy... nonchalantly ~ which is what spring seems to be doing on most days.  taking it's sweet time...
it's all good... and so spectacular.
 and nothing quite as sweet as a new bunch of baby pups!  {border collies}, that is!  same mom and pop as our sweet georgia girl.  there is eight in this litter.  anyone want a pup?  i know how you can get one {or two!}  lol  {seriously though ~ i do!}  i call this picture the 'puppy wars' ~ taken at easter when they were only 3 weeks old.  how cute is that?  uhhh well, it will only get cuter... gotta get back out there soon... now they are five weeks old!  already biting each other, playing and testing who's boss...
 speaking of easter... we had a BLAST.  sweet, sweet time on the ranch.  here's a shot of the easter egg hunt!  lisa {the older kid} trying to beat the {youngers} to the goodies!  what joy and laughter.

 precious memories!  

what a beautiful easter at the swan ranch.  thank you thank you thank you!!!!
 and before we know it ~ summer will be here.  but in the meantime, we can enjoy all that sweet newness of life!  cold, snow... blowing.  bring it on.  spring is comin' down the pipe, and we're ready for it!!
 as we left the ranch, this new baby just happened to be by the road, and i was lucky to get close enough to snap this picture without spooking the momma. 

ahhh... spring!  so glad you are here... 
even though you change your mind so very often!
we're so thankful ~
have a great weekend!
