Could it be....

Down the road from us.... we couldn't believe what we saw....
SHEEP......And there wasn't just a few...
The following week we were biking along a canal....
and...
 More sheep....
maybe the same sheep...
but they had been moved...
Could this be the way they are now mowing the fields??

First Desert Christmas...

Living in Central Alberta....
Christmas is a time of cold, snow, skating, skiing....
this year we experienced our first Christmas in the Desert....
We spent time swimming and in the sun...
We had a fun Christmas Eve with other park residents with Santa, a gift exchange
and Christmas Dinner on Christmas Day!!
We had a wonderful Christmas in our little southern home...
It's not to bad...being away from snow and cold....
but we did think lots about our children...back home.
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day!!

Tamale Festival

Down the road from Yuma...in the town of Somerton....

Main Street was Packed...
With people and over 40 Tamale Booths.... 
We wondered what a Tamale Festival was...
and it is Tamales... 
If you like crowds...and Tamales you have it made!!!
It was a fun experience...even thought I don't like crowds...
and the Tamales...were ok:))

Cotton Field

Yuma is the Winter Vegetable Capital of the World.....
but did you know cotton is also grown in Yuma....
We didn't know that until last spring...apparently they grow the cotton in the summer when it's to hot for the veggies....

This fall we came upon a .. Cotton Field...


This was a first for me.... I had never seen a cotton field!
