Baseball and Softball

Faith and Carson played Softball and T-ball this fall.  Faith was on the same team as last season, but they moved up to 12U.  Overall they did pretty well.  Carson liked playing T-ball and being on the Rangers.  He had a couple friends on his team from school and he really liked that.



The last game of the season Carson played catcher.  It was the funniest thing ever.  He started out sitting on his knees and never moved to stop the ball, just stuck his glove out.  Before the game was over he was sitting Indian Style behind the plate.  I was laughing so hard.




    Go Lady Horns!

Reed Family came to visit

Amber, Hayden, and Parker came for a weekend visit.  We had  a busy weekend planned with 2 T-ball games, craft show, Dateline Winking smile and Carson’s Birthday party on Sunday.  The boys had a great time playing all day and then going their separate ways at night. haha  And Parker and Jeff had a grand ole time playing together.  (maybe next time me and her can bond).





Random pictures of my little man

I want to remember the funny things Carson says and does before he is grown up and not my little buddy anymore.  It seems like each year goes by even faster and I can not believe how big he has gotten.  Carson is always doing something or saying funny stuff, and I have a file of him being silly so why not post them.



I love this boy so much!

It’s that time again

Thank goodness school is about to start, softball and t-ball have started, football will be playing this year, and cooler weather is hopefully in our future.  I really love this time of year.  I’m ready to start decorating with some pumpkins. 

Last week I took Faith to the middle school so she could get her schedule and locker.  I CAN NOT believe she will be in the 6th grade. (God help me), and  Carson will be starting private Kindergarten at his pre-school.



They are getting too big.

Colorado Trip

Every summer we plan a family vacation.  We usually stay in Texas and find different places to go for a couple days, but this year we decided to go to Colorado for a week.  We were offered a cabin to stay in for free, so why not.  All we had to pay for was gas and food.  We were  ready to get away since the weather in Texas is 100+ and in Colorado it is a lot cooler.  (Actually there were times I kept saying burrrrr I'm cold. haha)  Faith took her friend Ashley with her, and I took my friend Geri with me and made it a road trip.  Watch out Colorado her we come!!


On our way to Colorado and we made a stop in New Mexico to take a quick picture and eat lunch. (my husband was thrilled about the picture)


My parents let us take their Expedition.  Thank goodness, because we had it loaded down.  (Griswolds)


Here is the place we stayed at.  They had a BIG beautiful log house with a BIG apartment behind it.  It was so pretty there.  It was kind of breath taking. (don’t laugh)


Faith and her friend Ashley.


There were “Chick” munks everywhere. (as Carson would say)  They would come up to you and let you feed them.  Carson wanted to take one back home with us.  We told him if he could catch one then he could take one home. haha  That did not happen. they are too fast.




The beautiful Aspens!  I wish we had some of these in Texas.


We did a lot of sight seeing, walking and climbing mountains.


We had to get the crazy kids some crazy hats.


I can’t believe we found snow still on the ground.




It was really cold on the top of this mountain.


We took a horse ride for an hour.  (If I would have known before hand it was going to be up a mountain, you can bet I wouldn’t have done it)  The kids did great.


This is me scared to death on my “wild ass horse”  The lady told me if my horse was human he would be a communist.  GREAT LADY give that one to me.


We went to the sand dunes and slid down them.  It was HOT and a lot of work. 


We had a wonderful time on our family vacation and really enjoyed Colorado.
