"Fair Enough"

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!

Happy Birthday Cousin Dray!

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?"

Introducing the newest member of our family....

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......

Just a Reminder

Contrary to popular belief, eating and sleeping do not work together very well. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
