Friday, December 18, 2009

Finally, home from Indianapolis and able to post. It was a busy birthday week this last week...

Sharing a birthday on Tuesday is our niece Kayla - who heaven help us - will be driving next year.

Then on Thursday, Jackson celebrated his first birthday with his great-grandma Cook.

They're letting everyone help with harvest this year.

I don't know what's scarier - Maddy driving with one hand...

While this little combine isn't the most recent model off of the assembly line, it got the job done.

Now to get the data analyzed....
