Lots going on!!

If I still have anyone reading this, I am still here. I guess I just took a little blog break. Just like everyone else, I can't believe that summer is coming to an end so quickly! We have been busy with our nieces and nephew and our extended families!

Tomorrow we are headed to a bridal shower for a friend in Crowell. I used to work with her at the Steakhouse while I was in college. Oh how I miss the good ole days!! Then on Sunday we are off to Castaway Cove in WF with my SIL and her husband. The girls are looking forward to it!!

Levi and I have been on vacation this week and we have enjoyed every minute of it! I am not looking forward to heading back to work on Monday, plus it's the 1st of the month so it'll be a crazy day!! I got to go shopping with a good friend, Marci, on Monday in Lubbock. I throughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next time!! And to top my vacation off- my memory card in my camera isn't working. I need a camera experts help please!! My old card says, This memory card is protected. So I bought a new one and it says, Memory card error! It has been so frustrating not being able to take pics of the girls whenever I want! grrrrrrrrrr.... Help me if you can!!!!

I will leave you with some pictures from a few weekends ago. We went to my niece's (Caelyn) rodeo and then we took my niece, BreeAnn to the waterpark. We all enjoyed it! Have a great weekend!!!! :)

Harris Family Cook-Out 2009

On June 27th the Harris Family got together at our house for a cook-out. We see everyone during the holidays, but that's about it. So this year, I decided to have something in the summer. It was fun and all the kids had a blast as well. We ate HB's and hot dogs, some rode horses, some played in the slip-n-slide and just visisted.

We are already planning for a weekend reunion next July @ Lake Luggert in Altus. Everyone should have fun at the lake! Here are some pics from the cookout!

We are off to Woodward to the waterpark this afternoon and then staying with Todd and Sheri so we can see Caelyn in her last rodeo at Canadian tomorrow morning! Then it's home to reality!!

Horses & More Horses!!

If you're still out there- I am alive!! :) We have had a wild, but FUN summer so far!! We had a family cookout for the Harris Family at our house this past weekend and my niece & nephew (Todd & Sheri's kids) are now staying with us for the week. They plan to pick them up at the Wellington Rodeo on Saturday night. And Caeyln proceeded to tell me today that she wanted to stay 2 weeks, and I told her that her Mom would miss her then! But, to tell you the truth, Levi and I were talking earlier tonight and we're going to miss them a lot! They are so much fun, and a house with 4 kiddos never has a dull moment!!! :)

Caelyn (my niece) stayed here so that she could practice barrels and poles for her next rodeo on July 11 & 12. My Dad is on vacation so he is riding with her in the mornings & then we all ride at night. David (my nephew) has been hanging out with Levi at the feed store which he loves!! Tonight was the first night that we took them to the arena to actually set up barrels & poles, and to top it off- David decided he wanted to ride (& he hasn't shown interest in it to me before now). So we had a BLAST tonight, and I was able to get some pictures and edited a couple with picnik.

Autumn fell on concrete steps at daycare on Monday and she got her 1st black eye. She is a trooper though & the purple is already starting to fade as of today. But I did manage to take a picture of it while she was sleeping last night. Lots more pictures of the cookout & swimming lessons are coming soon, but please bear with me as I enjoy the week having my niece & nephew here with us!!

I LOVE this!!
Our border collie (Kacy) just makes this picture complete!

My 2 horse fanatics!!

Attempting to trot after she begged & begged, but then was scared to death & just wanted to walk! If she only knew that parents do know what they're talking about when they tell her she isn't big enough!! :)

David loved every minute on Snoopy!

Walking the poles
*She listened to me tell Caelyn to lean her body while she was going through the poles, so as Daddy was leading her through she was leaning & turning her head sideways- it was so cute!! And to know that she was paying that much attention to us!! *

Blurry but still cute
I love it!!

Some of my pretty cupcakes that I made tonight!
