Sale and Awards

Last weekend we went to Idaho for the State Sale. Brandon had decided to sell one of his heifers. As you can guess from this stupid economy, it was a pretty low sale and he didn't get nearly as much as we were hoping for.

The next day they had a Holstein convention in Twin Falls. I skipped out on the boring meetings ;) and just came for the luncheon where Brandon's parent's were receiving two very important awards!

Norma was awarded "Dairy Woman of the Year" which was very much deserved. I love how she really is a big part of their business and the way she raised her 8 children to be hard workers from a young age.

They showed this really neat video about Alan before he received his award..

2009 Master Breeder of the Year!

With 6 of their 8 childrenWe then spent Sunday in Burley with his parent's. Before we left to go home, Norma stocked us with fresh apples, a box of potatoes, homemade salsa and jam, canned food..and much more! It was sweet!
I am so blessed to have such wonderful In-laws! They are some of the kindest people I have ever met and are great examples to Brandon and I. (Not to mention the fact that they raised "such a good boy" as Norma likes to put it ;)
