Russell and I have been married 8 years, have a 4 year old son, I work as a Radiologic Technologist, Russ is a Funeral Director and Embalmer. We enjoy our farm and raising cattle, reading, and playing with our son. We like to take trips, although not nearly as often as I'd like. We try to follow God and serve him and are always learning new parts of our faith.
The pics of Kaden in the white shirt and hat are of the final sale. He walked around smiling at everyone. As you can see in the pics, people in the background were smiling right back at him. He is such a clown!
Kaden had a wonderful time at the fair this year. It was his first year showing. He got Grand Champion with his goat and 3rd place with his lamb. He was not shy at all. Thanks to everyone who helped him and came to watch him show.
Hey everyone, I haven't had time to post any pics yet, and I'm off to work right now, but I have created a album in Picasa. Copy and paste the link below and you should be able to view them, if not I will post on the blog in a day or two. Kaden did a wonderful job and we couldn't ask any more from a 3 year old. I will also be posting a video of the final show sale that my mom took. He didn't dance in this one, but he did work the crowd, you will see what I mean.... so have fun with these pics! Thanks to everyone who came to the show and everyone who helped. Grandparents: very special thank you to everything you did and helped with. Copy and paste the link below in your browser window bar.
Hey everyone! It is Fair Time again. Kaden is so excited!! He is showing a goat and a lamb. The goat's name is Tootsie and the lamb's name is Anna Lamba. We are getting ready to go pick them up from the farm right now. We are taking them to the vets office for a check up and then off to weigh-in. He will show them both tonight @ 5:00pm at the livestock barn arena at the fairgrounds at Houston. He would be very proud to see you all there. The Livestock sale is Saturday @ 4:00pm at the same place. There is a kiddie show for the young kids on Friday night @ 6:00pm also, everyone is welcome to come, it is free and the kids get a free t-shirt. You might come a little early for the kiddie show if you want to sign up.
I have posted some pictures from last years fair and the Kiddie show. He had so much fun. It is also pretty funny that the goat he pulled around last year is the same color as the goat he will show this year. Hope you all enjoy the photos from last year and I will post pics from this year soon!!!
Come out and see us at the Fair!!
I cannot believe that Kaden has grown so much since last year, he looks so small in these pics. Keep your fingers crossed, pray for us, or say some hail marys that he will lead his animals and that they behave well!!
We have been super busy as has everyone else I know. Russell and I had another birthday along with g-ma Betty. We are keeping busy with our garden and swimming. Kaden has started a new daycare, Wee Care at the First Baptist Church. He seems to like it so far. Sparky Barky is getting big. He likes to chew up anything he can. I am ready for him to settle down a bit, but I know we are a ways off from that. I hope everyone has a good 4th of July. Most of my family is going to Tennessee for a family reunion, but I have to work so we won't be going. Kaden and I are off to the farm to check and feed the cows and scope out the gardens there. Russell is having an intense craving for pizza from the Bendavis feed store, so I may pick that up for dinner. HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY EVERYONE!!!!
