Traditions are important to every person I know or have come into contact with. Our traditions usually come from our families, but once you get married you usually come up with some of your own. One tradition hubby and I do is try to have all our gifts bought by Thanksgiving or the week after and then have them wrapped by this time each year. This year hubbys family was here right after thanksgiving so we sent all that side of the families gifts back with them last week (saves on postage). Usually the pups hang out with me while I wrap, and this year I had a little extra help…


Its been a fun and interesting experience to have our first cat as a married couple. Our Grayson has his own crazy yet sweet personality and he is like a little kid… he has to be in the middle of whatever I do.


I have been having to figure out how to wrap when he gets on the paper and decides to take a nap or use the paper as a scratching area….


Even with something that could seem like an inconvenience I find myself finding it funny and hubby and I giggle at all his antics (except scratching the paper… that’s a bad habit to let start). So the tradition hubby and I started 8 years ago now has a new twist with Grayson in the mist and we have to be okay with things sometime take a little longer when he decided to “help” πŸ™‚

Hope your Christmas season has started out with traditions, old and new, people you care about, and memories that will last.

  1. We have two cats in the house and they are truly a barrel of laughs. It is all a matter of perspective and seeing the joy in their antics πŸ™‚ Glad that you have added that “twist” to your lives!

    Have a blessed and Merry Christmas!

    • Merry Christmas Anne and a blessed new year to your family. Hope all the feed yard changes are going smoothly now. πŸ™‚ I will miss your feed yard posts. Enjoy this time with your family before your oldest goes off to college. And enjoy your kitties too πŸ™‚

      • Things are going very well at the feed yard, and our family is looking forward to both the holidays and the transition. My new job will allow me to still post about feed yard life, it just will be different Nebraska feed yards where I play a new role in animal care/management. Our farm will only be “cattle-less” from February to April when we go to grass with calves. My girls are looking forward to the spring and their roles with our ranch operations πŸ™‚ All the best to you, hubby, and all of your critters!


      • So good to hear that. I remember you saying you would probably do grass cattle so I’m glad it’s working out. Merry Christmas πŸ™‚

What do you think? I would love to hear from you :)
