A Work In Progress

Who would of thought that a barely understandable rendition of I Am A Child Of God could bring a tear to your eye? This is what life is all about.

Woman Power

I got this forwarded to me and thought I would share.

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never needs or wants to...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
a youth she's content to leave behind...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
one friend who always makes her laugh...and one who lets her cry...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone in her family...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
a feeling of control over her destiny...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
how to fall in love without losing herself...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
how to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
when to try harder...and WHEN TO WALK AWAY...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
that she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
that her childhood may not have been perfect...but it's over...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
what she would and wouldn't do for love...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
how to live alone...even if she doesn't like it...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
where to go... be it her best friend's kitchen table...or a charming Inn in the woods...when her soul needs soothing...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW:
what she can and can't accomplish in a day...a month...and a year

City Slickers

This weekend was Atomic Days in Arco. It's a fun little celebration they have every year. They have a parade that starts out with a plane flying extremely low overhead and dropping ping pong balls on the street. All the kids run and get the balls and then when the parade is over they can take them to the Sheriff's Office and get a fifty cent piece for every ball they got. After that, we head to the park for food and games. There's always a big softball tournament, a mud volleyball tournament, and a horse shoe tournament for the adults. At night, there's always a big rodeo. So, Jaxon decides he wants to do the Mutton Bustin' at the rodeo. All of the other kids are there in there boots and wranglers with their cowboy shirts and hats. Well, Jaxon shows up in gym shorts and a tank top with sandals- and wins it! This was his first time ever riding a sheep and he was a little nervous when he actually got there, but Papa Steve was in the pen with him and told him he wouldn't let him get hurt. His first ride was great. He rode until the whistle and got 90 points! Then, he had to do a "ride off" in the actual rodeo for first place. That time he got too far up on the sheep's neck and the sheep rolled him pretty hard, but he just jumped up. He got 77 points for that ride! He won a pretty nice belt buckle and a new love for the rodeo. We are going to have to try and find some more rodeo's- he's hooked!

** Watch the sheep on the second ride. He rolls so hard he thinks he's dead and throws his legs straight up in the air. We keep watching that over and over and laughing our heads off! :)

My Disgusting Little Monkeys

Roudy got a horrible sunburn on Sunday. So horrible he had to stay home from work on Monday and I had to go to the store at 11:00 pm to buy him multiple aloe vera gels and listen to him whine. (I know I should be more sympathetic, but seriously? WEAR SUNSCREEN!!! You're not too cool, babe.) Well, today he's all "will you peel my back?" I don't know why he even asked me because everytime he gets burned he askes me to peel his back and the answer is always the same....HELL NO!!! Gross, right? Well, the kids were all over it and actually freakishly excited. I just hope they get done soon so I can vacuum the floor and they can get in the shower....

I'm The Meanest Mom Ever

We were given a full size mattress, so I took the old twin out of Jordy's room. I propped the old mattress against the wall until I could get it to D.I. Well, I came around the corner and saw Jordy hugging the mattress and sobbing her eyes out. I couldn't help but laugh- she didn't think I was a BIT funny!



***Keep in mind that Jordy never slept on this mattress- Trason did. Jordy sleeps in bed with her best buddy, Jaxon. I never knew girls were so emotional!!! :)

Splash Fest 2008

A guy on Roudy's crew had his 3rd annual Splash Fest today. Basically it's an adult water party. There was no way in hell I was getting in a swimsuit in front of all Roudy's friends, so I was the picture taker. Roudy had tons of bad wrecks on the water slide, but he kept getting me all wet so I quit taking pictures!

How many site workers does it take to fix a Keg?
Answer: One actually working and two standing around watching!

Notice the poor guy in the jeans that Roudy takes out not once, but twice!!
