We haven't had a lot happening around here lately.

Mason did have Parent-Teacher Conferences on the 13th and is doing very well. I can't believe that he is already through the 1st Trimester of 2nd grade. He is growing up way too fast.

Jose is working steadily which is such a blessing. He works in Jerome for Liberty Companies doing a little bit of everything. He was originally hired as a delivery driver, but since then he has been put in charge of the yard. He also works in the shop when needed and does a little bit of sales plus doing all of the deliveries. He loves his job which is a blessing in itself.

I am babysitting kids out of our house which is great because it allows me to stay home and make some money at the same time. I am also one of the room moms for Mason's class again this year. We have the first class party this Friday for Halloween. Mason is so excited about his costume. I had all of my teeth pulled 6 weeks ago and I go back to the dentist on Thursday to do the impressions for my dentures. Hopefully it will only take a couple of weeks to get them made and fitted. I also graduated my MRT class which means that I no longer have to drive to Twin Falls every Wednesday evening! I am so thankful that I graduated last week since we woke up to snow this morning!! I hate driving in the snow and bad weather.

That is pretty much all that has been going on with our family. I will post pictures of Mason in his Halloween costume next week. Hope that things are going well with everyone!!

Happy Halloween!!

Looking back

9 years ago tomorrow Jose & I were married. It is hard to believe that it has already been 9 years!! Time sure flies when you are having fun!! I thought that I would post some of our wedding pictures on here.

Jose, I love you with all of my heart and am so thankful that I have you in my life. You are my best friend and an amazing father. Thank you for everything that you do for Mason & I. Thank you for standing by me when it would have been so easy to turn away. You mean the world to me and I don't know what I would ever do without you! You are my past, present & future...I love you so much!!!

Outlaw Day 2010

Outlaw Days this year was very eventful!!!

Mason & I entered a 5k walk that morning that ended up being more of a 10k! It was a lot of fun...Mason rode his bike & I walked. I was able to walk 6.5 miles in 1 hour & 17 minutes!!! I was really proud of myself, but I was hurting & barely able to walk for almost a week!!!

Mason then rode in the parade with my dad on the wagon while I took pictures of everyone! Jose was able to watch the parade with me, but spent most of the day hauling water to the arena for the mud bog pits. We were both not very happy because he didn't get to enjoy any of the festivities! Down at the arena Mason rode a calf & entered the Barrel Racing. I ended up having to run in front of him & his horse because Ridge didn't want to go! He would chase me if I was running in front but if I stopped then he wouldn't move!!! I told Mason that I didn't know that I was entering the Barrels too! Mason had a lot of fun because he was able to spend most of the day in the arena with his Papa on his horse!

My birthday was the day after Outlaw Day and so Outlaw Day night Jose took me out to dinner at Jaker's in Twin. Mason stayed at with my mom & dad for the night.

On the day of my birthday we had a family bbq at my mom & dad's. My brother smoked a couple of roasts in his big smoker, plus we had a ton of other food! It was great to be able to spend time with my family!!

Here are some pictures from Mason's Outlaw Day adventures!! :-)

Long time no post!

A lot has happened in the last year, but I am glad to be back with my family and enjoying life again!! I will try to get caught up on the happenings of my family!

Mason just finished tball last week and he is really bummed out. He really loves to play and now he doesn't know what to do with the rest of his summer!! Thank goodness he starts swim lessons on the 12th!!

Here are some of his tball pictures from this year :)

Outlaw Days

The Richfield Outlaw Days was held on Saturday and it was definitely a very wet and interesting day!! I have never in all of my life seen it so wet at Outlaw Days! Usually we are dying of heat stroke!! We actually cancelled most of the arena events because it was raining too hard and the arena was just too muddy! Although the events that we did do were quite comical because of all of the mud! The kids had a blast during the calf riding falling of into the mud.

Mason decided that morning that he wanted to run the barrels, something that he has never done before! My mom and showed him the pattern on a piece of paper and then had him show us a couple of times how he would run it and then that afternoon for the first time Mason ran the barrels on my brother's horse! He had an absolute blast and can't wait to do it again! It was raining so hard while he was running them, but he didn't care he was having fun! I was so proud of him, he handle the horse so well and acted like he had done it a million times instead of it being his first time ever!!

Jose and I stayed busy helping make sure that everything ran smoothly. Jose helped time the events and I helped take entries, plus then we both went out into the muddy arena to run the kids events. Jose and I didn't even go out for the night festivites though. We were way too tired both Friday night and Saturday night.

Saturday was also my 30th birthday. I can't believe that I have turned 30!! It doesn't seem like it should be real, but yet I don't think that I should have a son that is going to be 7 and going into 1st grade either!!! I am getting really old and I don't like it!!!

Random Pictures

I have been into taking pictures lately with a variety of subjects. Jose bought me a really nice camera for Christmas two years ago and I have really been into playing around with it lately. I have been getting some pretty neat pictures and I thought that I would share them.

After 4 years, Jose finally cut his hair!!! I never thought that it would happen and I have been bugging him for so long to cut it, but he finally decided that it was time. With him out of work and trying to find a job he decided that it was time to get rid of the long hair. He has had it long for so many years that Mason can't remember him ever having short hair!!! There are a lot of people that Jose is friends with in Richfield now that have never know him without the long hair. After he got it cut Mason had a t-ball game and so many people were surprised that it was actually him!! I think that he looks so handsome and I am so happy that he cut it.

Of course we had to take pictures of him with his long hair before we cut it so that he could have them for memories! Jose's mom was so happy when we stopped by her work after he cut it that she almost started crying! I am actually very proud of Jose because he has donated his hair to Locks of Love to be made into a wig for someone with cancer. This will actually be the 3rd time that Jose has donated to Locks of Love.
