Block Slacker

I should get an award for being the best blog slacker around. I know we all have our busy days or even weeks but months?? Yes it has almost been 2 months since I blogged last. Maybe more, maybe less. I honestly don't remember the last time I blogged...

Anyways, I'll make this short and sweet for ya. Since I last blogged, there have been lots of changes. 1. We moved. 2. K is getting so big and 3. I'm an official ranch rodeoer.

We moved into Alpine at the first of July, for personal reasons mostly. I'm helping my dad and T is working part time for a local rancher and day working. It has been quite a change living in town but we are doing so much better now. :)

Little K is fixing to be 6 months old! I can't believe it!

This was at the latest ranch rodeo.

We are sure sitting up good! Not quite on our own though.

He loves being outside on the trampoline.

Or in his playtime saucer ( or whatever the heck you call it!)

Oh, and he loves swimming! I'm so thrilled because his daddy doesn't like it much.

And he loves horses! I've never seen a baby get so excited over a horse!

Also since we moved into town, I was asked to join the local girls ranch rodeo team! So far we have gone to 2 rodeos. One in Happy, TX and the other in Roaring Springs TX. We qualified at Roaring Springs for the finals in Amarillo in October! We are so excited!!

The steer we had in the mugging kind of kicked out butts.

That was a last ditch effort to get it mugged...

We finally got it done though.

I got to rope in the branding and I did very well if I do say so myself. The other gals either don't like to heel or don't know how and I'm thinking that's how I made it on the team... Oh well though I had a blast doing it. The one gal, the one was was crawling on her hands and knees in the mud in the previous picture, she paid for all our entries and is the captain. All she wanted to do was mug the steer though, that's what she lives for!

Our team! Girls Night Out!!

Ya'll have a blessed weekend and I'll see ya soon! I promise...


  1. Oh gosh that looks so fun!!!!

  2. Glad you guys are doing ok....little getting so big! He reminds me of his cousin Q!! I have NOT forgot your recipe you sent...just need to get chilies...not something I've found(the big chilies) but I might be looking in the wrong place! Take care.

    Good Job on the ranch rodeo~looks like so much fun!
