::January recap::

Feb

One more year and Mom will have all “adult” children!…First things first, Benjamin turned 17 this last month! Happy Birthday Benjamin! You bring laughter and thoughtfulness wherever you are! We are so grateful you are in our family!

For his birthday dessert mom made him a Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake…Boy howdy, that was some GOOD stuff!

Benjamin has a weakness (maybe it’s a strength) for fried chicken…and Maggie definitely makes the best around!

Does this not make your mouth water just looking at it?! It was scrumptious!

Carinna and Dad smoked some homemade summer sausage again this year!
It sure is yummy!

Look who got to go to an OKC Thunder game!

Eric is growing so fast, and his personality is showing more and more. Carinna has been helping Dustin and Hannah flip a house they bought. She comes home tired and just a little dirty. But you can’t beat good ‘ole hard work! : )

We sure love that Granny lives so close!
Granny will beat you in most games…but at least you get an ice cream bar. ; )

Abbie and Maggie do a whole lot of this when they’re home!

It’s hard to get quality time with people when everyone is going different places and doing different things…so, sometimes to spend time with them you just have to go along. : D Like, Abbie went with Hannah and Evan to Hannah’s midwifery appointment for a check up on the baby boy who is due in one month!…

…Carinna went thrift store shopping with Mom!…20170130_172222

…and Maggie went with Carinna to do some animal chores for some friends. Sometimes in a big family the best place to catch up with someone and talk about  life is in a vehicle!
It happens ALL the time around here…
"I thought so and so were back?  They are, but they’re still out in the car talking.” : D

Abbie and Benjamin started a tradition several years back…if it snows enough they build a funny snowman. You can find their other one’s here and here. : D : D
Even though Abbie had tons of homework, she still made time to go have some fun with Benjamin. : )

I think spring is a little early this year y’all!
IMG_2448 

There’s almost always a warm front that comes in in January, and I didn’t hear anyone complaining about the 70-80° weather!
One week we had 0° with snow, several days later it was 80° with short sleeves! : D

More time in the car…on the way to a wedding up by the panhandle of Oklahoma.

The sunset was gorgeous on the way back!!!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 

Sometimes in the busyness of life it takes a whole lot of intentional actions to keep your mind stayed on Him and trust God! But if you will, you will have perfect peace in the middle of all the chaos.
And that pretty much sums up the Burnett’s first month of the year!

Hunting success

Dec
30

It’s a little bit easier to sit out in the woods all day if you have a
beautiful rustic view!20161125_154817

The look the neighbor’s cows give you when you’re walking to your stand.  : )
“Are you from a different planet?”

Wide open skies.

But even better than beautiful scenery is when you get to bring home some meat.
Benjamin got a doe and buck. Dad shot a buck. 20161123_081600

Carinna shot a hog that we didn’t butcher, and a small buck that was limping.
IMG_204220161125_091324_1

These three went looking for a hog Maggie had shot at when it was getting dark.
They didn’t find it. Each year more and more hogs are coming around.

A whole lot of team work goes into the process of field to freezer!
IMG_2048IMG_2080

Carinna saw a buck on the side of the road on the way to work one morning.
It was below freezing, so she got permission from the game warden and we were able to salvage some of the meat off of him. It was a new experience for the Fenns. Homeschooling at its finest. : )

Yummy supper with fresh, never frozen deer meat!

We are so thankful to get the opportunity to hunt on Grandpa’s land.
And for a full freezer this year!

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,
and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26

We were blessed to attend the Family Connections event in OKC! And also to have the team come to our house for supper, games, fellowship, and fun stories from living in Mongolia!

IMG_1417IMG_1418

It’s always super fun to meet new families! We met this family through the blog and they drove all the way from Kansas!

Carinna has fun coming up with new things to do with “her kids”. You can’t go wrong with making flubber…unless you play with it in the kitchen and get it everywhere!

Dad and Mom took a Saturday go to an Amish auction together.

Carinna, has been working hard brush hogging and getting things ready for deer season. She loves it!

Our friend Barrie from Alaska came to visit for several days and helped Maggie and Carinna clear out shooting lanes at the deer stands.

We helped out with a project at Abbie’s school gathering items to take down to the flood victims in Louisiana.

And loving every minute with little Eric!

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”
