"The Tuffest of 'Em All" and so forth......

Okay, I have been sitting here for a good 20 minutes or so trying to think of a good excuse to the lack of my blogging skills............but to no avail. I have come to realize that I am just a terrible "timely" blogger. On that note, I feel as though we have been extremely busy this summer, but I feel like I don't have the pictures to prove it. I have been a not so good photographer this summer. I have already told myself that I seriously need to work on that. My kids are growing so fast I need to remember to take time to snap some shots! Okay, note to self: Take more Pictures.

As most of you know, the Woodward Elks Rodeo was in town not too long ago and I will say that I think I have a little cowboy on my hands! Mason is all too familiar with cowboy boots (since Dad is a "farmer".....we have like 18 cows, in the real farm world apparently that is not a lot :) He goes with Brent to check cattle every day, and check on the goldfishies that we put in the stock tank. Mason and his boots are just a good combination. Sometimes he just wears boots and that's it. It is quite a sight. :) In honor of the rodeo I took it upon myself to deck Mason out in brand spankin' new western duds. New boots (just like Dad's) a new pearl snap shirt, size 4 slim Wranglers, and completed the new look with a belt emblazened with "Combs" on the back. I love my little cowboy! He looked such the part. Needless to say, he loved the rodeo, went every night, and everytime I drive towards Crystal Beach Mason asks if we are going to the rodeo and insists he change out of his sandals into his boots.

Cameron is growing like a weed and is full tilt everywhere. She is into all of my jewelry and she wears belts like they are necklaces. Last night we went to my grandmother's house for my Dad's birthday and the kids swam. Cameron is a waterdog in the making. I think Mason will be a good swimmer, I am glad he is not as brave as I thought he was. In due time I am sure!

Also if you were wondering about the pile of orange on our living room floor, that was courtesy of Cameron. So, be sure to eat Cheeto's off the floor. I heard they were way better with dust bunnies!

On an ending note, Congratulations to Katie and Annie! I messed up somewhere and I cannot comment on other people's blogs. Katie, next time you are in Woodward, PLEASE come over and help me. Anyway, children are such a blessing and I am truly happy for the both of you!

Good to see a new blog from you! I think your kiddos look like you, but I'm sure other people can see their dad in them, they are just too precious! We are super excited about our third child, and should find out soon what it will be. I have no patience and cannot wait to find out! :)

I have been waiting and waiting for a new post...FINALLY! You have such beautiful kiddos! I love your little cowboy! I can't tell you how many times I have found piles of goldfish (the crackers not the real fish) on my floors. I feel your pain!!!
