Another Fair Year is Over

Well, the fair is over for another year. The steer is gone and I just hate to think about where he is going. We had him for almost a year, and he was just like a big puppy dog. The kids did a good job of showing their animals, and they learn so much about responsibility in taking care of them. Lindsey made the premium sale and Ace purchased the steer. Lindsey says, "Thanks, Dad!"

Fair Days

Lindsey showed her goat today. I just want all of you to know that goat did a fine job being led around the ring! The only problem is he got 4th in his class. (too much fat) Todd needed to work with him on the four wheeler a little more! Lindsey shows the steer tomorrow. Wish us luck!

Easter Pics

Grandma and the great-grandkids present posed for a picture. Grandma will be 80 in May. Doesn't she look great?

Saturday we spent the day in Kirbyville with my family. Mama wanted pictures taken in which no one really cared to have a their picture taken. I tried to make light of the situation and have a little fun with Lee!

I added some stones to the garage walls this afternoon. The Lord blessed us with great weather this week, so the flower beds are weeded and mulched. I can't believe it is already Friday.

Another day of country living!

Lindsey had to get up early to take her goat to get trimmed. Since Meagan was with Lindsey, she had to get in on the act too. I can think of alot of things these girls would much rather be doing! Have fun girls, I am headed to College Station shopping!

Productive Day

This is what my garage looked like this morning at 9:00 am. I looked at it as my empty canvas.

By 3:00 pm I was finished with the color wash technique. I plan to go back and add faux stone or brick in places on the wall later. I will rest a few days before I try to tackle that! On to the flower beds!

Sunshine Day

It's Spring Break and this is what I feel like singing!!

Stubborn as a ........Goat!

Okay, Todd is not being cruel to animals. Lindsey shows this goat in a couple of weeks and it will not lead and it is getting too fat and needs exercise. So, Todd devises a plan. He ties the goat to the four wheeler and takes it to the corner of the pasture.
Please don't make me do this again!

Once Todd unties the goat, it runs all the way back to its pen!

After 4 or 5 times, the goat is breathing pretty hard, so they call it a day. Cheap entertainment when you live in the country and you are in your forties!

Class Picture

Our class pictures came in today. I have gained 2 new students since then, and now I am up to 20. Aren't they a good looking bunch?

Mmmm Peanut Butter!

No snow pics, but Lindsey and Raynie came over with their ag class and presented a lesson on peanuts. We had been learning about products of Texas and the girls told us that peanuts are big business in Texas. Lindsey could be on the Magic Bullet infomercial! Everytime that program would come on, she would ask for it! The kids tried peanut butter with and without salt. Alexis thought it was pretty good. By the way, salted peanut butter was the winner.

Snow Day!

It's snowing today and the flakes were huge! It has been snowing for a few hours now, so there may be more accumulation later. I want to take my students out and take more pictures. Stay tuned!

Hacker, BEWARE!

Don't mess with Mama! I might have a few more pictures of my favorite oldest daughter up my sleeve or some stories like driving to Alex's with no radiator!

Goods from the Girls!! in Ashley...(just for Carrie) won 2 tickets to the Houston Livestock show and rodeo! So Lindsey and I set out last night to see all the cowboys and Faith Hill!! We were able to ride to the rodeo in style by taking mom's car, but unfortunately for her she was forced to spend some quality time with old whitey!
As we are on our way, Lindsey gets a frantic call that mom is stranded at Fantastic Tans! We are already in Huntsville and dad is in a meeting, so poor mom is left sitting in the parking lot praying that she can pry the key loose from the ignition and start the truck.
Oh but it gets better!! A few minutes later, after I am trying to run down Daniel or someone to help this damsel in distress, Lindsey recieves another phone call that the poor dear did not put the truck in park!!
Needless to say we had a great time at the rodeo and Mom had an eventful afternoon!!
By the way...she has no idea that this blog is being posted! I am headed back to College Station and will avoid the wrath!! What can I say...I'm a hacker!!
Love you back for my burrito and bird's pecker!!

I Told You!

Working Hard, Ha Ha!

Okay, I don't have any pics of the family, but I wanted everyone to see my look when I am reading blogs before school, at lunch, and at conference! (notice the bold print ) Angela suggested that I post a picture of what I look like at the end of the school day. I promise, it won't be pretty.
