I am thinking about starting up this blog again. Not sure if it will last. With the addition of a new little one to our family- I figure I should give it a go and try to keep of a record of the going-ons with our little fam.

Before I really get going- I discovered a bunch of blog entries that for whatever reason- I never posted. So I am going to remove them from limbo-land and give them a life here. Even though they are way outdated- I still want to be able to look back at them. So just a little explanation in case I confuse anyone who actually may be looking at this long-forgotten blog! :D
On Trav's birthday we took a Sunday drive to my dad's house. Whit was there and offered to get Little Mare saddled so we could take a ride. This became more of an Afton day - but the birthday boy still had fun! (It's not like we can go wakeboarding in November, anyway).
I think these photos will speak for themselves, but I'll preface: One of our cute neighbors is on her school's drill team and asked if Afton would be interested in learning a dance to perform at the drill team's yearly concert. Afton said she wanted to do it, so she and about 100 little girls learned the dance in 2 or 3 nights. She had it down and was excited for the show! Well... I think performance night wasn't quite what she expected. The result was quite cute (slash-hilarious)!
Even with a blurry picture, you can see very clearly: she was SO not going to cooperate!
We knew it was going to be an interesting 2 minutes at this point.
No- she wasn't supposed to stand in the middle of the circle while everyone else laid on their bellies.
And, no she wasn't supposed to take her arms out of her sleeves, and as a result throw her mom and dad into a state of panic (I think Trav and I were chanting in a tense whisper: "PLEASE don't take off your shirt, PLEASE don't take off your shirt!!! )
The arms stayed tucked away the rest of the performance until the final bow when only one decided to reappear.
Even when it was all over- not one smile, nope, not ONE!
Well, well, well... if it isn't me posting on my what-may-seem LONG forgotten blog. You better believe it! Even though I am the world's worst blogger, I just couldn't keep myself from posting all these pics from Afton's "Princess Camp" this week. One of these days I'll post about all the other things we've been doing in our lives! Until then...
