They spent the first winter in Ennis' trailer and started to build
a cabin out in the middle of nowehere in spring. The following Christmas
was the first in a long row of holidays in their home.
Look, there's the red truck again!

One year they got seriously snowed in. They didn't mind too much however
and just took the horses instead of a truck to visit Ennis' daughters on Christmas Day.

Many years have come and gone since then. As much as they like winter and the holidays, their favorite season is summer, when they relax on their porch after a long day. This photo is from last summer, in 2012. After many years of insisting that he sees everything he needs to see, Ennis finally gave in and got himself some glasses in 2005.

Pretty cool stuff.
