I'm Back and in Action!!!

Really I don't know what I'm in action to LOL!! But I am back after an unexpected hiatus on everyone!! I first off want to say I hope you all had very Merry Christmas and A Happy and Safe New Years!!

Christmas Morning!!

Me with my Beauty!!

My Handsome guy and I!!

Two Lights of my Life!!

My Hubby...Oh how I Love him!!

My Fabulous Family!!!

I have just been SO busy!! From spending most of December getting the Christmas and Birthday shopping done. Then the Hubby's Sister and family came to town to visit for a few days which was so great to see them!! For New Years Eve we went with some friends to a hotel in the city where they had all kinds of games for the kids and tables for the grownups to have food, play cards, visit, whatever we wanted and then the best part for those who were drinking their trips were very safe back to their rooms to crash!! Ingenious idea I tell you!!

This past Weekend we spent at DD's Junior Rodeo and boy was it COLD!! AND I DO MEAN FREEZING COLD!! Poor DD was in tears after her pole run because her hands were SO frozen!! And the sad part is that she was only out warming her horse up for a couple of minutes before their turn so maybe a couple of minutes tops!! But she did good the rest of the weekend! I can honestly say we have never rodeo'd in the snow before so it was different!

DD had great runs all weekend, little blunder on poles Sunday but that happens. Her barrels for Sunday went great! She beat her personal best with a time of 16.666! I've been doing some thinking and I might start looking for a better rodeo horse for her...Pete is good but he wasn't ever used straight rodeo so while he has fun doing it he doesn't always show that power that he needs to compete on these higher levels! So we shall see...


  1. Welcome back! What a good lookin' family you got there! I can sympathize with DD. I HATE to be cold. It's miserable.

  2. I'm glad you're back - missed ya! Wonderful Xmas pictures.... Congrats on your new time DD! - Great job! and yes the cold stinks! We've had 30 below - no riding here...

  3. Very nice family pics.:)

    And I have to say, that is one of the smoothest runs I have seen DD make. VERY NICE!

  4. Yay, so glad you're back!!!! We've missed you in bloggy land. Congrats to DD for the excellent time!

  5. Welcome back. Congrats to DD for beating her personal best!

  6. Glad you had such a good Christmas and New Years! Welcome back.

  7. Great video -- ride, cowgirl, ride! I love the part right at the end where her hat flies off and her hair streams out!!

    Glad you're back!! :)

  8. Yeah!! Your back! Missed ya! Figured you were busy with the holidays and all.
    Your family looks so good!
    DD's barrel run looked great! Probably the best one I've seen, and brrrr! Nothing worse then frozen hands!

  9. Welcome back! "How 'bout them cowgirls..."...congrats DD!

  10. Welcome Back!!!!! And.. Happy Holidays... and Congrats DD!

    And.. I'll trade your cold for mine 25 F is actual temp - wind chill puts us at 9 F and it's snowing sideways.... I'm longing for sunshine and above freezing!
