Hello people! Yes, I am still alive and my family and I are doing well. We apparently have a nasty little virus on our computer. It is supposed to take at least six weeks for the computer man here in Woodward to get to our computer problemo. Ewwww. That's all I have to say about that. My camera will not upload pictures or anything fun. So, this will probably be a fairly boring blog, hence no pictures. I swear, it is always something.
We have done a bunch since my last blog. Brent and I attended our good friend Shelby Weston's wedding in Cabo San Lucas last November. It was absolutley gorgeous and glamorous and all that Cabo entails. The bride (Kristi) and I even had a Speidi sighting while we were there. Those of you that keep up with all of that trashy hollywood gossip will know who I am talking about. Heidi and Spencer actually got married at our hotel the day after we arrived. And yes, she really is that skinny. And yes, he really is that dorky. Brent and Shelby were like ," who is Speidi?" all the while Kristi and I were squealing like little 12 year olds. I get so fired up about the most random stuff I swear!
Moving on. Cameron is almost as tall as her brother. She really is an Amazon woman. She is taller than most of the two year olds in her class. Mind you, she will be two in June. She talks non-stop all the time. And Brent and I have decided that our lives would be super boring and quiet without her around. We love you little Macaroni!
Mason is wonderful. He is such a joy. He is becoming such a smart little guy. I will have to say he is the only 3 year old I know that has mastered Playstation3 already. I'm not sure if that is a good thing or not......but it has been really cold outside, so I guess I will allow it. He gets to start soccer this summer and I am beyond excited. I will officially be a soccer mom!
This one goes out to my Harrell and my Karn girls...congrats! Babies! I swear you make the cutest and biggest babies on the planet. I applaud you. Leia, the bows are adorable! Hence the first paragraph and my camera debaucle. No proof of Cameron's cuteness. I guess I will have to do it the old fashioned way and send you actual pictures. Billie..aren't you proud I blogged! I will see you on the 15th.
For now, farewell. Hope everyone is doing well and I have one last thing to ask my favorite twins:
Would you please help me judge cheerleading try-outs this year KANDACE & KRISTEN? Let me know. Love you guys! Have a great weekend :)

TUBES!! Not exactly what I wanted to hear, but I know it is for the best. Here are some pictures of Miss Thang. They are supposed to be One year old pictures, but she is about 14 months here. Sometimes it takes us Moms that long to get stuff done. Holla all Moms! Cameron Rea......she enjoys long baths, her blanket, snack time, and sunset strolls around Briarwood at night. Guys, the quickest way to this girl's heart is jewelry. It doesn't have to be fine jewelry.....belts used as necklaces, hair twisties as bracelets and so forth. Better watch out, she's a pistol!
Also, thank you to all of your nice comments. We are blessed and feel honored to know that there are so many people out there who have taken the time to pray and think of our family. Thank you to all, it means so much!

Well, as some of you already know, Cameron has had a horrible ear infection for the last 2 months. We have taken 3 rounds of antibiotics and tried 2 different types of ear drops to no avial. This whole ear infection thing is very new to me. Mason never had any ear problems whatsoever. Dr. Kirkendall is our family physician and I trust every word he says. Today when we went for our checkup, he recommended that we see Dr. Scott for Cameron's ears. Apparently she has ruptured an ear drum and the infection is just not going away like it should. I am not too sure how I feel about tubes in Cameron's ears. Just the whole thought of anesthesia scares me. I have heard extremely great things about Dr. Scott and I have no doubt he will take excellent care of my precious baby girl. Tuesday is our appointment to see whether or not he thinks Cameron needs tubes. So, if you would, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. I know everything will work out for the best. I will leave you with a picture of my "favorite" daughter, Cameron Rea Combs. Isn't she sweet!?

Yes, I admit it. I did it. I dragged my entire family to the Fair this weekend. We went on Sunday (the last day) and I can actually say with confidence that we had a good time. I had a blast because I got to people watch for 5 hours. One of my favorite past times I might add. The Fair is even better than the mall or an airport. I guess in airports you are probably more likely to see a celebrity than at the Oklahoma State Fair. Well, we did see Courtney Paris. She is a celebrity in my book! Mason had a great time. He rode the choo-choo trains with me, airplanes with Brent, rode a pony with me, and a camel with Brent. Yes, you heard me. A camel. I will leave you with the picture of "Rocket" the camel. Brent on a camel is priceless in itself. Enjoy!
This past weekend we went to Choctaw to celebrate our Nephew's 1st Birthday. We had ever so much fun. Mason was totally in his element the entire weekend. Kristy and Darrin live on 10 acres with lots of trees, water, dirt, animals and all sorts of other creatures. Kristy worked her tail off to have Dray's party be a Barnyard theme. She even went so far as to get 2 goats, 2 miniature ponies, 3 ducks and 3 chickens for the kids to have a petting zoo. What a Mom!! Cameron and I helped her out in the kitchen getting ready for the party (pigs in a blanket, cow and pig cookies)etc..while Mason was outside with the guys. Anyway, the party was a hit, as you can probably tell by the pictures. Drayden is a happy, loving, wonderful little boy and I am so proud to say he is my nephew. We love you Dray!! Mason would say, "We love you Cousin......where did the chickens go?"

Say hello to Peanut. She is quite the character. Brent brought her home to "show" me before he took her to the shop to be a shop kitty. Needless to say, she never made it to the shop. So, she has made Leaning Elm her permanent residence. The kids are pretty rough with her. It's a good thing cats are so resilient, otherwise I would probably have to invest in a kitten neckbrace because Cameron refuses to carry her any other way. Mason is too funny....he calls her Catty Cat. I keep telling him that Catty Cat is not her name, but he just ignores me. You can't imagine how many times a day I hear "Catty Cat...where are you? It's me, Mason! I won't hurt you (wink wink)" So, it is crazy around here. What else is new?
Oh Catty Cat......
