Sale Barn Day

Owen sold his calf today...this was right when he woke up this am.  Excuse the ants in pants, hands in pants, tongue sticking out, and the messy background.. He was just a little excited.

Waiting to go to Sale Barn
Climbing the gate

PS-His notebook to keep track of the steers and heifers he sold/bought  is tucked under his hat and his phone and pen were right inside the back door all ready to go.

Maddison is 8

Maddison turned 8 on Monday.  We had our family bday party over the weekend.

.Maddison's Cake (last one until June 2011!)
This cake was acutally pretty easy and it was the first time I worked w/fondit.  It was pretty easy actually.
The topper is a wooden M from Hobby Lobby that we spray painted white and then dipped in glitter
Topper Sprigs were from Hobby Lobby 50% off (i actually bought too many because we couldn't decide and then I was going to return the ones we didn't use.  well..maddie wanted all so the "leftovers are now in her room waiting for just the right vase to be put in)
Opening presents...clothes, clothes, boots, shoes, cd's, and a coat, plus some cash..

I know the men and boys were BORED to death if Maddie opened yet another box of apparel

Just an FYI out there for ya.  When you purchase gifts for your children, make sure its not something Santa Claus tried to give last year, but was too small.  Atleast this time the size was right...
Sigh..don't even ask
