Grandkid Day.....

So we decided to get all the Grand kids together and take a picture for my mom. One of my friends was nice enough to come and give it a try. Her name is Candice and she is way good with kids and makes it really fun for them...and us too. So just to give you an idea of how this was going to work, Collin is the oldest Grand kid out of 8. And he is just 7. So she was in for a treat....

After bribing the younger ones and threatening the older ones and just putting the babies were we wanted them. This was how the first couple attempts turned out.

Some loved it and some really didn't want to be there.

But Candice didn't give up. Here are some of the rest

We had her do individual ones of the kids as well but that's for another day.

So I've been meaning to do this for a while. These are some pictures of my little sweety. She's been really fun. My friend took these as a baby gift to me. She did an awsome job. Candice is 5 days old in these. I'll try to get some more up to date pictures posted too.

Ole Chevy

Finally!!!! I've had the ol girl home since December and finally putting pictures on the blog.

This has been a long time coming. I've been working on this project basically since 2004 when I got done building the engine for it. It took a lot of work, and criticizm, (like why are you putting a good motor in that old piece of crap?) Because this is my high school sweetheart. And yes I am pretty sure it's worth it.

Dual batteries, K&N air filter (boo), 6-speed tranny, NP205 t-case, even wired in a wait to start light, and very soon, air conditioning (Yeah). and used all the stock gauges, except for the oil pressure, but replaced it with a manual gauge.

Wheeler Ride

Last weekend me and Collin went for a little ride up through the ranch and up to East Fork. Aparently there has not been any wheelers go on this trail for a couple of years between the trees in the trail and logs over washes that were broke (the ones that your supposed to drive over) it was an interesting ride. here are a few pics.

She's Here!!!

It seemed like she would never ever get here, but on July 9th at 3:13 pm Candice joined our little family. She weighed 8 pounds and 8 ounces and was 20 inches long. She is the best baby, she is so easy going and very laid back. She has been alot of fun to have here with us. Collin can't walk by her without stopping to give her a kiss. He loves her alot. He gets kinda mad at me when I let her cry at all. It's fun that he is that protective of her.

A Day At Grandpa's & Grandma's

Collin is always wanting to go somewhere, and lately it is either to Grandpa Brent's and Grandma Jeri's or Grandpa Leon's and Grandma Sally's. Since we live close to my mom and dad, he goes there all the time. I'm bad and don't really ever take pictures of him while we are there. Grandma Sally is always finding something to entertain him. But a couple of weekends ago, Lance and decided to go to his mom and dad's for the day. Collin loves it over there cause everyone lets him boss them around. Especially Uncle Craig!!! Who lets him play his Xbox all the time. We got there and it was so nice out side we went out to play. Lance and Craig decided to hit golf balls at the people running at the park from the back lawn. It was kinda funny to watch. They never hit anyone, but watching them try to find all their golf balls after they hit them was funny.

While Lance and Craig were doing that, Grandpa decided to teach Collin how to play Croquet. It was quite funny to watch as well. He never did quite get the rules, but he did learn how to hit the ball the right way. He had alot of fun "being on Grandpa's team."

After they played Croquet, Collin found a hole in the back yard. So he begged and pleaded for his dad to bury him in it, so of course he did.

What can I say the kid loves DIRT!!

And now for the baby news...I still don't know what we are having. Stuborn little thing! I do have another ultra sound. So hopefully we will find out.
