Hurricane IKE Weekend!!

Okay, so while everyone from Texas was headed up north....... We headed down south to Athens, TX for my High School 10 year reunion!! Yes, we were crazy! I graduated from a tiny town called Malakoff, and graduated with 57 people. So here comes hurricane Ike to try and spoil the fun. Luckily the wind was not as bad as predicted!! Although, it did rain close to 4 inches on Saturday, we had a great time!!
Class of 1998

On Saturday, since it was raining so hard, the family took advantage of some good quality FAMILY TIME!! We played on the Wii (which my little nephew Zane is so competitive). We laughed so hard at each other, and had so much fun!! Even my dad got in on the action. I woke up with my arms sore the next day.
Nana read books to the grandkids. Aren't they so cute!!

I'm so glad that we got to spend the weekend together. We always have an eventful few days, and we come back 10 pounds heavier due to my mom's great cooking!! My family is the best, and I'm so thankful for them!! Love you guys!!!

Miss Cleo

Miss Cleo is my very first dog that I bought all on my own!! I bought her 7 years ago, and she is my baby. Cleo is a puli. They can be seen on the dog shows! And yes those are dreadlocks that you see. She is very protective, and is great with Ava. I have another Puli, and his name is Doc. I couldn't get a good picture of him, so maybe you can see him some other time!!

We are very proud to say that we are Oklahoma State fans!! Andy and I both cheered in college, and have already started to train the little one. A family friend bought Ava her first cheerleading uniform, and it is so cute on her!! Right when I put it on her she was dancing around. She was so funny!! Here are a couple of pictures of daddy stunting with her.......

3 things to talk about...THE ZOO, FISH AQUARIUM, and OUTDOOR KITCHEN!! We are so excited that our outdoor kitchen is finally complete. We love to entertain, and this new space is just what we have been wanting. This new grill is massive, and Andy is pumped about grilling some yummy food on it!!
Ava and I have been busy playing!! Within the last week, we have been to the zoo, and fish aquarium. She loves the zoo, and we have SO much fun looking at all of the animals. The fish aquarium is beautiful, but I think she is still too young for it right now. She did however get to touch a stingray. CRAZY!!! I was to scared to touch it, but she was just laughing.

I really am enjoying this age!! She is learning so much, and she is so curious!!

Keeping Me Busy....

Well, I'm still trying to capture that really good photo of Ava. She is always so busy, and I think I panic when it comes to taking these pictures fast. Everything that I have learned in my class goes out the window, and I just start snapping. Needless to say.....I think she is the cutest little girl in the world!!

I love this picture even though it's dark. She loves to swing!!
