Big Day

      Today was a very special day for us three...

We were all baptized today! All three of us at once. Last year Tristan was saved in February and on January 29th, Eric made the choice to be saved at the Outdoor banquet. He did not grow up with a church family, so this is just wonderful for him to be making this choice! I am very proud of both of them. I was sprinkled when I was 12, but I felt like I have grown so much in the last year, that I wanted to make a new committment, so we did it together! We are very excited about this new beginning in our lives!

Braxton and Tristan- Best Friends, nothing better...always there for each other.

And the same goes for their mom's...the sister I never had, she truly is a blessing in my life and I thank God for both of them, for being a part of this day and our lives, you both make our lives better...

And I want to thank all our family, my mom and dad, Eric's parent's, my grandparent's, and some other very special friend's, the Hobb's, thank you so much for being a part of this day with us, it is so nice to look down and see these people that you know care about you and your family.
I got several text's and phone calls too,  from some very special friend's, MW and SW, I know you were with us...thanks for your kind words!

Blessings to all of you and your family's!

Boot Love...

      For Christmas my mom and dad got me a gift card for Cavender's to get some new boots. I haven't had a pair of cowboy boots since high school, which I did  wear while I sported my Rocky jeans! Ha! But since the cowboy boot comeback, as I like to call it, has come back into style, I decided to get some. I went and ordered these the day after Christmas, took 4 wks to get them in, then they were too big!!! So back to reorder and finally I have some "boot love"!!! I can't wait to wear them! Now I wonder if I can find any of my old jeans.....just kidding!!!!
I haven't been this excited about something to wear in a long time!

I kind of feel like I need to do a line dance just to break these babies in...

Valentine's Day 2011

      Valentine's Day...what can I say, I really think this day is overrated! Ha! I know my kids love it though! Eric and I, we just get a nice card and each other's favorite candy and call it good!
My Valentine flag, I really do love this flag. I have had it for years.

I did make a Valentine wreath for my door, I need to add some more to it next year.

A closer look.

I have made all the treat bags...

and the sugar cookies, per Tristan's request, no store bought he said!

And well, this little goodies here, they are getting me in some TROUBLE!!! I think I have ate my weight in them, and I am not kidding!!! It should be interesting when I go to my yearly next week and have gained 10 lbs since last year, I think I will just bring the empty bags and clip it to my chart, so we won't have to discuss it!! :)
I worked at the school delivering Valentine orders and oh my, I was just amazed at what some of these kids I said, over-rated!!!
We did have a nice day though.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Superbowl Fun

      We went over to the Carter's for the Superbowl, and we had a really great time, nice and relaxing and the food was really good!!! And the Packers won! Tristan is a huge Packer fan, funny thing he didn't watch any of the game though!
Stacy and me

I made homemade sugar cookies, this could be why I feel like I have gained weight lately???!!!

I made a cheeseball, soo good! And Stacy made Taco soup, yummy, and Sweet Roll sandwiches, it was all too good!!

Easton and Cooper watching tv.
The other kids were there and the husbands too, but for some reason they didn't want their pics made!!!
We had a really great time, thanks Carter's!!!

Snow Days....

      I am behind on my posts, so for my memory I am going to go ahead and post. First, yes the snow is pretty, but I am so over it!!! With 3 kids and a husband home, well, that can make a mommy crazy for days!!! My bunch went sledding several times, Coop did not like it, so he and I stayed in where it was warm!
Snow Day February 2011

Making the walk up the Vache hill for some sledding!

Tristan... and who is that behind him, I think it's James from like 1995, skinny guy!!! Really he has lost a lot of weight and looks like he did back in the day! :) 

The Curry Clan fixing to hit the slope! Evidentally this orange sled Eric bought, was the bomb!

Madi Bell with her snow ball....

Big kid and Madi Bell

Coop on the backhoe, as usual.... :) This kid loves him some backhoes and dumptrucks!

I think everyone enjoyed the snow, I just have seen enough for this year!
Bring on Spring!!!

Prayers needed...

     I have a prayer request for all you praying momma's out there. My brother's step-daughter has been sick for awhile now, she has been tested for all the regular things like flu, strep, etc... they admitted her to the hospital today because her white blood count is very high. I, my sister-in-law, and brother would appreciate the prayers for this young girl, she is such a sweetheart. Thank You!

Look What I Found

      Yesterday, boredom got to me and I started going through a few things and found this! A sweet gift from a sweet, sweet, friend I really miss seeing....
I pulled out a frame and framed it up, and now I am trying to decide where to put it???

For now, it has landed on top of the fridge...we'll see if that is where the little bunny stays.
This is the first bunny I think I have in my house, I have admired them in TH's house and SW's house, and one day SW decided to give me this, and I love it! Thank You!

I have been trying to shop my house lately, moving stuff around, I'm not totally in love with anything yet, but we'll see!

Dreaming of White....

      I am dreaming of white sandy beaches...the snow is pretty, but I am over it, the hubby has not worked in 4 days...and there is a chance of snow 3 days next week...
Maybe we should move here...

Where there is white all the time, but it's warm and windy...

Just yesterday....or so it seems...wouldn't it be...
so nice and white!

I am rambling....I a dream world, as I take a break from my newly addicted soap's, haven't watched soaps on a daily basis in 3 years, but now I can tell you what is going on, on all of them!

Monkey's at Our House

      Lately at our house a few monkey's have shown up....maybe it's the weather, wanting to be hanging from tree's instead of stuck inside...

This was the first monkey to appear, "baby monkey"...

Baby Monkey watching football, must have been a touchdown!

And then "Disco" monkey appeared, busting a move.

Still busting a move...

Then "Mommy" monkey appeared, looking a little stiff if you ask me???

There that is better...looks much more comfy watching tv!

And then "Daddy" monkey showed up, looking a little serious...maybe it's the pink bow he doesn't like???

There is another monkey running around here too...but he has not been "caught" by the camera yet...but it's a coming, no hiding from me!

Fun times here!!!
