Sunday School Picnic On The River

Saturday afternoon, we headed over to the river for Mommy & Daddy's Sunday School Picnic. The kids had a blast playing with their friends.
Corey & Cheney enjoyed hanging out on the dock & throwing the football.

Allie & Chandler always have a good time together.

Sorry son, I don't think you are going to be the center on the football team!!

Best Part Of The Game.....

Friday night was Homecoming for our high school...sadly, the best part of the game was seeing our friends!! The Matadors lost BAD!! It was painful to watch. However, seeing our friends made it fun!!
Chandler & Keagan had a great time as usual.

Madison attended her 1st football game and had fun cheering with Chandler!!

Homecoming Parade & Pep Rally 2010

Tonight, we headed out to watch the annual Homecoming Parade & Pep Rally. It is really fun!!
Chandler got to see her new friend, Lane. They go to preschool together.

We watched the parade with our good friends, Micayla & Justin. I can't believe how big they have gotten!!

At the end of the pep rally, the traditional Burning M is lit. It is still cool after all these years!!

Tomorrow is the game....stay tuned for more pictures.

Soccer 2010

Soccer season kicked off with a bang last is so much fun!! Kase & Chandler are on the same team & Karson & Cheney are on the same team. They have a large cheering section!!
Kase is so fast....he goes after the ball!!

Karson & Cheney sitting, talking.....I wonder what about?


After the game, they were all smiles.

When you are concentrating, you must stick out your tongue....

Wonder what they are looking at?

Birthday Party Fun

On Saturday afternoon, Chandler went to a birthday party for one of her friends from school. She had a blast playing with everyone, but she especially enjoyed hanging out with Madison. Madison will be at the deer lease this year with us because her Daddy is on the same lease!! Once again, living in a small town has some benefits: Mommy went to school with both of Madison's parents & Madison's grandmother is Bubba's GT teacher.
Aren't they cute?

The cupcakes at the party were pink with black & white polka dots....the kids thought it was funny that their tongues turned BLACK!! It looks like she has a disease!!

Friday Night Football

While there are no guarantees for a win for the Matadors each game, there is one thing that is sure to happen.....C & C will see their friends. Last week was the home opener. Sadly, the Matadors lost, but Cheney had a blast running around with his friends. We hardly saw him the entire game!!


Chandler was reunited with her friend, Kadie. She is in one in the middle. Kadie started Kindergarten this year. Brynlee was at the game too!! These girls have fun no matter where they are or what is going on.


Chandler got her favorite squeeze from her favorite teacher! We love Ms. Emard!!

Another Visit To The Snake Farm

MeMe & Pop took Cheney & Chandler to the Snake Farm a few weeks ago. They had a blast but while they were there, they found out that the alligators & crocodiles get fed on Sundays @ 3 pm. So, yesterday, we headed over there right after church. We got there just in time to see the Albino Burmese Python. Cheney held it & said it was heavy!!
He thought this was so cool, but Chandler wouldn't get near....

While he was holding it, the snakes head started going between his legs....ooooo, this freaks me just slithered down his back!!

In the petting zoo, Daddy & the llama had a talk about being rude & greedy....the llama won....he grabbed Daddy's bag of feed out of his hands!!

Chandler loved the miniture "baby" ponies!

Waiting for alligator/crocodile feeding

They brought around a juvenile alligator so that the kids could feel it. Chandler got up the courage to touch this one!! YAY for her!!

The guy feeding the crocodiles is trapped in the corner--he is holding an orange Home Depot bucket of raw chicken. You can see some chicken flying through the air & if you look below it, you will see some big, sharp teeth!! It was a cool show!!

Perfect Afternoon!!

It was Saturday afternoon & we were all just sitting around the house...being bored, flipping channels & suddenly, I thought: WE SHOULD GO TO THE RIVER & GO FOR A SWIM!! So, we packed everyone up--Lance included & headed for the Guadalupe River. It was so fun!!
The weather in Texas today was about as perfect as you are gonna in the morning & warm in the afternoon with beautiful blue skies!!

Jumping in for the perfect swim!!

The area by the dam is the perfect place to drop an anchor & swim.....she loves posing for the camera...sometimes her sassiness scares me!!

Daddy & Bubba diving in to coax Lance to join them.

Lance finally went for a swim....he had fun!!

After we swam, Cheney decided to ski. Honestly, I had my doubts about him skiing. He hasn't skiied since May, but he proved me wrong & popped up on the 1st try!! WAY TO GO BUBBA!!

Lance watching Cheney while he skis....yes, we are missing a windshield. It was a casualty of the flood. We are in line to get it fixed but there are other boats ahead of us!!

Lance enjoyed his 1st boat ride!!

Chandler loves riding in the boat & looking cute. I have no idea where she gets that from!!

Saturday was the perfect TEXAS day!!

Not Scared

This summer, Chandler has been known to run screaming from grasshoppers & frogs. I realize that she was scared, but it was kinda fun to hear & watch her when her Bubba found a critter to make her scream. But for some reason she decided she was no longer scared of grasshoppers the other night. Maybe just maybe it had something to do with the fact that Keagan was there & she wanted to show off for him.
However, I asked her if she was going to pick up a frog now.....that is a definite NO!!

Chandler has been begging to be home in time to see Bubba get off the bus. The other day, I hurried to pick her up to see if we could make it home for the BIG EVENT!! We made it!!
She patiently waited.....

.....and waited with her lemonade!!

Sadly, she missed it though--SHE HAD TO GO TO THE BATHROOM!!

We will have to try again another day!!

Check The Soccer Fields!

Soccer season has started and if you are looking for our family, just check the soccer field!! We will spend all of Tuesday evening there and Saturday mornings for the next 10 weeks!! It is going to be fun. Cheney & Karson are on the same team and Chandler & Kase are on the same team. Daddy is Cheney's asst. coach & he is Chandler's coach. Our Dad is AWESOME for volunteering!!
Cheney has turned into quite a serious soccer player. He says this is "his sport!" He loves it.

The little ones having a team meeting with their coach....wonder what they were talking about?

My sweet soccer player....she was very nervous about practice tonight but she did a fabulous job!!

I wanted to take a picture of them together but this is the best I could get....Cheney was upset because Chandler was hugging him. She loves to hug her brother but it really annoys him!!

Check back later for more action shots!!
