God is GREAT!

I just wanted to share how wonderful God has been to me! My family is amazing! I don't know why God chose to bless me so abundantly with my husband and children, but I sure am thankful He did! The 4 of us have so much fun together. We work side by side to keep our place running, we all work together to help each other practice for whatever event is coming up, we encourage and pray for each other, listen to each other, and share in whatever joy or sorrow we are having. Last night, after a long, HOT practice session in the roping pen, Cody, Michaela and I "plotted" against Randy to start a water fight. We had the water guns stashed behind the shed and got him when he wasn't expecting it. Of course, it turned into a full blown water fight among us all! It really hit me afterward when Cody came up, put his arm around me and said, "We have a lot of fun together, don't we Ma". And, yes, we do! So, cherish your family. Spend time with each other. Love and encourage each other. Most of all, thank God for every minute you have with your family!

State Rodeo Finals

Girls will be girls! We spent the week in Jackson, MS and it was HOT! Michaela and her friends found a way to cool off! Yep, that is a tarp in the back of a truck and filled with water. Aren't they smart!

Cody and JD on their way to help at the Special Needs Rodeo that was sponsored by the Mississippi High School Rodeo Student Officers. We had a great turn out! We had 16 special needs contestants and 14 high school students willing to help out. They all had a great time.

Many sides of Michaela!

My sweet baby girl has many sides!

She can go from glitz and glamour to dirt and sweat with no trouble at all.

And, she's beautiful in them all!

Two Beauty Queens

Crazy girls! You never know what Michaela and Mark Anne are going to get into! One minute they are wearing crowns, the next they are headed for the mud on the 4wheeler!!!

The Clan

Here we are! Randy and Cody in front of the fireplace for Christmas. Why do we always pose in front of the fireplace???? Michaela and I getting ready to go to a Mississippi State football game!WE LOVE OUR DAWGS!!!! It's hard to believe that my babies are growing up. Cody is 17 and a junior in high school. Michaela is 13 (almost 14) and in the 8th grade. They keep us busy! Michaela just made the volleyball team at her school. Way to go baby girl! We are so proud of both of our children!
