This week has been an Interesting week here at The Schlatter House Hold.  Marvin's Dad had Gall Bladder Surgery this week and by the time they figured out what was wrong with him his Gall Bladder was really really infected and he was in a ton of pain so his recovery is going to go slow.  Marvin went up Tuesday and Wednesday to the Farm (3 hours away in Smith Center Kansas) so he could help his brother wean their 200 or so calf's and then he came back home for 2 days then will be leaving to go back up to the Farm and help his brother finish weaning the last of the calf's this weekend.

Piper and Willow have 4 Birthday Parties this weekend and I need to get Christmas Shopping done so when we go to Colorado next week for Thanksgiving we can do Christmas with my Family and Close Friends while we are there.  Every year we rotate Christmas at the Farm and Thanksgiving in Colorado and then the next year Christmas in Colorado, and Thanksgiving at the Farm ect... ect...  So our own Families get to spend every other year Christmas and every other year Thanksgiving.  So anyway when we are somewhere for Thanksgiving we also do Christmas that same weekend since we won't be back for the 2nd Holiday that year.

Well I have a little baby girl crying wanting her 3am feeding so I am off to Nurse a Sweet Baby Girl!!!!  Can't get enough of this sweet thing!!!
