It's a...

Today was ultrasound day!

Everything looked and measured good.
The tech couldn't get him to cooperate and get into position for one of the heart measurements, so we'll have another one in a month to get that last measurement.

So thankful for a healthy baby boy!

Let's hear it for the weekend!

I don't know about you, but I was pretty darn happy when the clock struck five on Friday afternoon.

Saturday, we headed to the big city to celebrate my little cousin Lauren's high school graduation.

I love Lauren...a lot.
You see, it was me and a bunch of boys...and then came Lauren.
Thank you, God.

The Little Lady loves Lauren, too.

There were lots of "big girls" at the party and the Little Lady had a big time being the center of their attention!

After the party, we ran some errands.

Love these pictures of the Little Lady in the car wash! 
{And guess what, we found out that our Suburban is really maroon, not tan!}

Then it was time for dinner at Red Robin.
These cute pictures are right before her royal meltdown.
She always makes eating out a challenge.

{Cell phone pics from here on out...I don't know why I feel the need to tell you that, it's pretty obvious...}

We've just spent a lazy day at home today, no church or anything.
I did get entertained by a cowgirl and pony show.

And the good news is...I still have one more day of my weekend left!

Thank you to all of the men and women who died protecting our country.

Mother's Day

I hope that all of you Mamas out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I sure did!

Thursday I got this very special delivery from the Little Lady at the office.

Saturday evening we had dinner with my Grandma Hammer {but I didn't get any pictures, fail}.

Sunday we went to my Grandpa and Grandma Chisman's house.

Sunday morning just as I had started to blow dry my hair, the electricity went out.
That kinda makes for a grumpy Mama, not being able to do her hair.
I had threatened to kill anyone that took my picture.
My Mom begged.
And now here I am posting it?!?

And then tonight when we got home from work, there was more for me in the mail! John Wayne scored big in the shopping department this year and impressed me with this cap that I've been wanting with our brand on it.

As all of you Mamas know, sometimes being a Mama is hard work, but it's the best job we'll ever have!

The Weekend

Hello friends! I hope that you all had a good weekend.

Saturday, the Little Lady and I went to Pueblo with my Mom and Dad to my cousin Josh and his wife Chevy's college graduation party.
{John Wayne opted to go to our neighbor's branding. Hmmm, imagine that! : )}


That evening when we got home, we spent a little time outside.

The Little Lady is so funny with Poncho.

Yes, Poncho!  I just realized that I forgot to give you all that "more information" post, including his name.  Poncho it is.  That's the name he came with.  We debated changing it, but nothing else stuck and Poncho did.  I like it.

Anyways...some days the Little Lady is all about Poncho and some days she prefers a little more distance.  She's two, she's pretty much day-to-day with everything!

Today was a distance day : ) 

Then it was on to see Tressie's heifer and her calf.  She calved just a few days ago and Grandpa called to let us know that they were in the corral getting a drink if we wanted to get a look at them.

We gave the Little Lady her heifer for a first birthday present.  John Wayne named her Lasty, because he said "that's the last thing we're ever giving her."  {I like to say "yeh, right" to that : )} 
Anyways, I named her calf Uno, since that's the first money that the Little Lady will ever earn for herself.

John Wayne and I both had a nice savings account when we graduated high school, in part to our parents and grandparents giving us cows over the years and helping us to get a start.  Now, we're thrilled to be able to do the same thing for our kids.

And a parting shot of the Little Lady.
Her cap and boots are pretty much staples in her wardrobe, she doesn't want to leave the house without them.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and here's to a great week!
