Roger's New Puppy

Meet Bandit
aka Bandit Wrangler Rich
aka BW Rich

Poor Grandpa Lucky is having to put up with ALOT
Thatcher and Tagg came over to check him out yesterday.  They sure think he's a cutie.
Bandit has one blue eye, and one black eye.
He's doing alright so far. 
We lock him in the big dog kennel during the day when we aren't around, and we lock Lucky in there with him at nights, and they sleep together in the dog house.

Pouring Cement

Zac has started the mow strip around his yard.  He was hoping for an early start, but the cement (you pour) place wouldn't start up until it was at least 45 degrees.  I think they headed for the first "yard" at about 10:30 am. 
Zac had enough formed up to pour 2 yards.............or so he thought. 
When CJ walked across the yard, I did a double take !
She got her hair cut (for the first time in a year) and colored.  It's super cute. 
Mom and Dad (Grandpa and Grandma D) came to help.  Dad commented that they had been doing this for 50 years.  YUP, since 1967, when they did all the cement work at their old place (where I grew up).  I remember for sure, waking up in the mornings in the summer on a Saturday, to the sound of the cement mixer going out front.  Grandpa Reed Dickson would be shoveling gravel into the machine, and getting it mixed with the cement and water.  Dad would be wheelbarrowing it and dumping, and Mom would be tamping, raking, tapping with a hammer.  Dad would then finish it up.  Good memories.  Who would have thought that 50 years later (2017), they would be helping their grandson do some of the same things.  They are amazing.  It ended up that Zac needed 2.75 yards instead of 2, but he got all of it done that he had formed.  It was a little much for one guy to finish, and he wasn't too happy with it.  He's a perfectionist.  Unfortunately he had to miss Tagg's game in order to get it all done. 
Tagg was disappointed that they lost their 2nd playoff game - 18 to 12 in double overtime.  A sad way to end the season, darnit !!.  Zac tried to cheer him up.

Flag Football

Payson has played Flag Football for the last few weeks
I think this week is his last week.
Landon has been the coach.
They play at a Lions Park just off Harrison on 22nd Street.
Love the mountains in the background.
He's finally got the hang of sitting out for TWO PLAYS, every little bit.
Landon has a paper in his hand, and every two plays, 3 kids switch out and take their turns sitting out.  He also keeps track of who is in what position, and switches them around every time, so everyone gets to play every position.
There's Payson with the ball
Telling Grandpa just what he's going to do when he goes back in the game.
Listening to advice?
Hope so - Grandpa knows what he's talking about !

Fun Fall Day

Last Saturday we got together (in the rain) and gathered the pumpkins from Grandpa and Grandma D's garden.  Boy there sure were a lot of them !
There were a few cornstalks left that we hadn't fed to the goats, and Tagg was a TERROR, chopping them down with the big machete knife.  We all stood back, that's for sure !!
I gathered a few for bundles for decorations.
These two sure had a great time hanging out together.
They helped gather the old summer squash with Grandma D.
Our own personal mail man stopped by
Jarrett is a hoot !
No, he's not being "shod"
Zac's scraping off the mud (haha)
Hugs for Treyson
Landon is such a goof
Love him.
I fixed a big batch of chicken noodle soup, LuAnn made rolls,........
.......and Mom made Pumpkin Pie.
It was all so good.
It was nice to eat in the shop where it was warm.
Kacey and Brightyn came after a little while.
They had been to Ogden to get Halloween manicures
So cute.
Look at the DEVIL in Payson's eyes (haha)
He saw that Thatcher had TEN (count em' 10!!!) pumpkins in his car..........
So they proceeded to put TEN PUMPKINS in Payson's car !!!!
