It's been so long....

It's been so long since my last post I thought I should write something. It's just a really busy time for me right now. Mostly because of kiddo stuff.

We have decided to put our house on the market in mid-Feb so we are busy cleaning and getting things ready for that. It is a very nerve racking process. We have found a few pieces of land in Comal County we are interested in so after the house sells hopefully we can purchase something else fairly quickly. I have to stop stressing about it....I know God will work it out for us.

Rodeo is right around the corner and that is always a busy time for us. Last Friday Ashley finally purchased her rabbit that she will be showing this year. She is so good with animals- I'm so proud of all the hard work she puts into her projects. This year Alexis will be showing a Llama at the Houston show. That should be interesting.

So Alexis has been in tumbling/gymnastics for about a year now and last Tuesday she finally did a back handspring by herself. Now she won't stop doing them. It's so cute to see such a little person flip flopping like that.

Not alot new with me and Robert- just work and school. We have decided to do something for my b-day this year. Some dancin and drinkin sounds good to me. I can't remember the last time I celebrated my b-day. I'm really looking forward to that.

Well, that's about it for now. Life is still good!!!!

It's been a long time......

Well Christmas has come and gone so fast once again. Every year it's the same thing, there is so much build up and excitement and then poof it's over in one day. This year we went to San Angelo- we were there from the 22nd until the morning of the 25th and then we went to San Antonio and stayed there until the 28th. Needless to say I was glad to get home. While in San Angelo we all went hunting one last time before the season ends. None of us had any luck. Alexis went for the first time with her dad.....lets just say it's not really her thing. She has a hard time sitting still, let along keeping quiet. But she was excited she got to go with daddy.

Now that the holidays are over,we are starting to get our house ready to put on the market. So, while in San Antonio we went and looked at properties in Bulverde and Spring Branch. (Yes, Shanna you read that right.) We actually found some we are really interested in. I can't wait to get the heck out of Katy, TX!!!!!! I am so nervous about this whole process.....will everyone please pray for me and my family that everything goes smoothly and peacefully and that we will find the perfect place for our family. Thanks!!!

All in all we had a pretty nice holiday......except Robert and I didn't get to go see Eli Young Band at Gruene Hall like we had planned.......it's okay though, when you have kiddos you kinda have to roll with the punches.

It's been forever since my last post....

It's been a long time since my last blog...lets see what's happened. We went to San Angelo for Thanksgiving and Robert shot a deer so now we have to go back for Christmas to pick up the meat and for some more hunting. The girls are getting pretty excited about Christmas. At the moment they are helping Daddy put lights on the house. It seems the older they get the more expensive their Christmas list gets. I told them to narrow it down to one thing they really wanted and they both said they wanted new four wheelers. Apparently they haven't got the memo that money doesn't grow on trees.

This past Saturday my wonderful husband bought me a new shotgun......I know, I know, he is soooooo romantic!!! Anyway, we went to the gun range yesterday and lets just say my right arm and shoulder are still killing me. That stupid shotgun kicked my butt!!! I feel like such a wimp because before we got there I was talking about what a good shot I am.....I had to eat my words.

Oh I can't wait for this weekend. My high school alma matter is playing my step sons football team. This game will determine which team will go to the state game so it should be a good one. I have decided to spend the first half on Katy's side and the second half on Smithson Valley's side. I am trying to be very diplomatic.

So Robert and I went to see the comedian Ron White last night. Let's just say we won't be doing that again. Now, I did expect some vulgar and inappropriate stuff, but he just way over did it. He drank from a bottle of whiskey the whole time and the more he drank the more disgusting he got. About half way through the show, a girl fell from the balcony. Yes from the balcony onto the concrete floor. It was crazy!!! The medics came and took her away- I have no idea how hurt she was or even if she was alive. Ron White was so put out about this women falling. Like she did it on purpose just to interrupt him. He was like, "why does this have to happen at my shoe, " and "who the hell falls from the f*cking balcony?" He was so insensitive. He wasn't even concerned if she was okay. What a dissappoint- I'm sorry but this Ron White guy seems like a total Jackass!!!

Friday evening......

Wow I finally finished my microbiology paper this morning at 10am. That stupid paper has been haunting me for a week. Although it's not due until Tuesday, I went and turned it in to my professor today- I just wanted that thing out of my hair now that it is done. Now I have an anatomy and physiology lab exam on Tuesday so I will be spending Sunday and Monday studying for that. Tomorrow will be a fun day though, we are taking the kids to see the new Madagascar movie in the morning and tomorrow night Robert and I have tickets to see the comedian Ron White- you know that guy from the red neck comedy thing. One of his buddies just gave him the tickets and they are 4th row from the stage so woohoo for us!!!! I love to laugh so I'm looking forward to it.

I am completely consumed with my microbiology paper. I thought I would have it done this past weekend, but I'm just now finishing it today. I did have a nice surprise in micro on Tuesday, I had a test last Thursday and thought I bombed it and it turned out I got a b. That was a relief!!

I am so looking forward to Thanksgiving next week. It will be nice to have a break and get away. We are going Robert's sisters in San Angelo. He's going to hunt- but I haven't decided if I'm going to hunt with him or not- it depends on how cold it is....I hate being cold.

Robert is so cute lately, he now is proclaiming that Brad Paisley's song "waiting on a women" is his theme song. I always tell him he has it easy, compared to a lot of women, me and the girls are pretty low maintenance. I have such a blessed marriage- it's hard to believe that after almost 13 years together we're still crazy in love.

Well, now I have to get back to that pesky micro paper.
