6th grade here we come!

I can't believe that my baby is in 6th grade!!! It seems like only yesterday that we were taking her to the first day of kindergarten. Lexi is going up so fast. It seems like the last couple of months she has changed so much. I couldn't be more proud to be her mom. She is such a good girl. She cares so much about people and making sure that we are happy. Lexi is a very sensitive girl. She is very aware of the things that she should and should not be doing. I really think that she was born with a keen sense of what is right and wrong. I am so proud of her and her decisions. Because we were only blessed with one child, I think that God gave us one of the best!!!!

Mid-Life Crisis?

I don't know if I am going through some kind of mid-life crisis, but I decided to get crazy (at least crazy for me). My sister Tricia, who does hair, is moving to Seattle in a couple of weeks. She came over to my house to do everyones hair one last time. My sister-in-law Jolea decided that she wanted to go Red, and when I saw her hair I fell in love! My sister encourged me to be brave and look what I did!!!! She wouldn't let me see it until she had it cut and styled. I was so shocked that I screamed and my heart was beating like crazy. I think it is going to be awhile before I look in the mirror and wonder who is looking back at me! I needed to do some kind of change. I guess I got it!!!!

Stud Muffin!!!

My husband is a Stud! We had an Elders Quorum party tonight where we shot shotguns and had dutch oven cooking! It was so much fun. Lance did such an awesome job, he won the "spam" award. I couldn't believe how well he did! I got lucky on my first time up and got a clean shot off! My luck went down from there. I did end up getting another, but not like my hubby! A fun time was had by all!

Neco's surgery

Our poor little Neco had to have surgery! It was such a crazy thing too. He started limping one day and not putting any weight on his front paw. We tried to see if there was anything stuck in it, but couldn't see anything. We ended up taking him to the vet, who told us that it was a fox tail weed that had worked it's way up in his paw. He tried to get it out, but it was to far in. They ended up having to put him out to get it. Poor Neco was drugged up pretty good. He was out of it for a good day! He would run into something and then just stand there! We would physically have to go move him! We got a good laugh out of it! He is now on the mend.
