Well, my girlfriends are out at the rodeo - me - hmmmmm - home with the grandson. Wish I was watching Brooks and Dunn - but life goes on!

On a high note, I was able to get 12 bails of hay in my little truck - what a good truck I have!!!

Going to go riding with Charley in a little bit - he is napping right now. Kristin is out riding and I don't want to miss this beautiful day - I need to ride! :)

I am trying to get the laundry done.

Oh, my son, Tim, just bought a very amazing a wonderful game! Scene It - for X-Box - I am addicted already! We played before he had to leave to the recording studio (school).

I have dinner in the oven - laundry in the wash - well, at least I am making progress in my house!

Hope my girls have fun at the rodeo! I miss you gals!!!

One Today!

Charley is one years old today!

He loves music! He has a piano and 2 drum sets! He plays the drum sets like bongos - it is amazing!

He loves his new piano as well! It will be amazing to see what the Lord does with his love of music!

Riding with my Grandson

Here we are riding!

I thought since he was 1 it was time to take him on Princess!

He hated getting off! He is a cowboy! Yeah!

Here is an updated picture of Baby

Here is Baby in front of the stalls.
I was able to "mess" with her today - it was such a beautiful day. To get out there and play with the horses was just so wonderful!

I guess I will have to have an update picture of Princess as well. I don't want her to feel neglected! :)

I now have 2 horses!

This is Baby! She was born on our property May 2008. Her owner, Kristin, wanted to sell her, so I bought her. I will have to wait another year before I can ride her, so I will take this time to work with her and get her used to me rather than Kristin.
I am so very excited! Tressa is excited! Albert is - well - ok with the transaction! He said it can be my birthday and Christmas presents for years to come! :)
This picture was taken back in September, she is much bigger now and I will put a new picture up as soon as possible.
Wow - I can't believe it - 2 horses! I love it! No worries - I am still getting a cow this year! Bovine in '09! That is this year's motto! :)


Well, Charley had a wonderful time eating cake and opening presents. I can't believe he is going to be 1 tomorrow - where does the time go???

Getting all ready to have a house full of kids and parents for Charley's first birthday party.
It is the "Cars" Theme - from the movie. We will even show it during the party.

I can't believe Charley will turn one on St Patrick's Day - where does the time go?

I love when Charley and Grandpa play together - down below are some pictures I took this morning.

Tara got home last night from Army School - Charley was happy to see her!

Well, off to do some more cleaning and prep work before the party begins!

Playing with Grandpa

Ready to rumble, Grandpa?

I'm going to get you!

I can keep on top of you!

Ha - I got you!

Look at me - I am the winner!

Walking in our Boots

Walking in boots was quite an adventure

Charley was trying to get the hang of it, but he truly loves walking barefoot
