Hey Readers,

Hope you all enjoy this weeks newsletter!


Progess on our house.


People ask all the time about the progress on the house.  Well, things are

finally happening inside.  This is the old attic.


This is the view out the front window.




Christina & Bruiser


Christina and Bruiser have been like family to us.  Now Christina is making a her own family!  (Baby due in July!)

Bruiser is now living at my grandparents' home in Missouri...Watch Out Missouri Squirrels!

Prom Dress Shopping


You can't tell by my face but I really liked this one.


This one looked great with the socks.




Grandma Rita helps me pick out the perfect dress.


This one is mom's favorite.


Trip to Grandpa and Grandma's House in Missouri

We went to my grandparents' house in Bolivar, Missouri last weekend.  They have a huge yard

for the dogs to run in.  Joe went fishing with Grandpa and Vince while I went Prom Dress shopping

with Mom and Grandma.  Found the perfect dress, too!

Barn Quilt Tour



This barn was built in 1916 by Henry and Sophia McLaughlin. It was used for milking cows and boarding eight horses. Hay was stored in the center of the barn loft. The original roof was replaced with steel roofing several years ago.

Owner: Bob and Alma McLaughlin




This barn was built after a tornado destroyed the original barns that were constructed in the late 1800's. The current structure was built in 1942 due to the typical Nebraska storm weather.

Owner: Ted & Joann John Farm







The Nebraska Windmill quilt pattern hangs on Rick & Mickie Clements' recently renovated corn crib. Mickie has headed the Cass County Barn Quilt Project. Mickie's father-in-law, Dwight Clements, had the corn crib built around 1955. Dwight hired an Elmwood cornhusker to pick and shuck corn by hand here for 2 or 3 years until picker combines made the corn crib obsolete.

Owner: Mickie Clements
