The Circus was in Town!





The circus came to McCook a week ago and we got to see all sorts of things. It was a good time, Colby and I went by ourselves and really enjoyed it. Colby even got to ride an elephant. We got to see many fellow bloggers and Wauneta people. Fun was had by all! We saw elephants alligators, acrobats, tigers, clowns, an Indian and his horse, dogs and so much more!

Memorial Day Weekend

Finally I am blogging again! We have had computer problems and you just don't realize how much you use it until you don't have it anymore! Well Memorial day weekend we spent part of it down to Troy's mom and dads. Great Grandma Georgia was there along with Troy's sister Michelle and her kids. We had fun even though we could not get in the water because of all the flooding. But it was great to see everyone. Kalli got sick though and so me and her spent alot of time together. It was a short trip down there and back. We left Saturday afternoon, Todd and Troy rode there motorcycles down there and Gayle and I and the kids followed. Then Sunday afternoon Gayle and I left with the kids since Kalli did not feel well. Troy and Todd came home later that evening.
Great Grandma Georgia with her great grandkids, Colby, Lizzie and Trey!
Trey is really good at sports!
Tristen dressed up for us on Sunday, she looked beautiful!
Sierra finally started being my buddy an hour before we left!
Cutie Colby


Lizzie was wearing shorts and boots! She was excited because her daddy was taking her fishing!
Colby and Lizzie giving each other hugs, I don't know if that is a thumbs up or side ways!
Of course I thought the weather was going to be cold so I didn't bring anything but boots, so Colby was styling in boots and shorts! He is such a ham bone, he loves to pose for me!
With all the rain, the lake was up very high! The only person in our family in the water was the dogs.


This isn't the best picture but this is the only one of Kalli during the weekend. Poor baby girl was sick, sick, sick! I think she is finally about over it!

Fun in the Dirt

Well it was another FULL weekend. We have a couple of little sheds in the backyard and Troy moved them around. Our back yard looks a lot different! We rota tilled the garden and got it planted. We also rota tilled up a spot just for the kids, that way they don't play in my garden! They love it!

See the dirt, mom!
Even Troy enjoyed playing in the dirt!
Kalli enjoyed eating the dirt also!!!
This is a picture of Colby giving the dirt a HUG! He was thrilled he has his OWN DIRT!
Yes, this is Colby driving the 4-wheeler! Scary isn't it! It scares me and Troy says it is OK, he has to learn sometime. Colby is growing up too fast! We went and checked out where he will be going to Preschool next fall on Monday night. It makes me sad and nervous to let him go!

Not the typical Mother!

OK, yes I am not the most typical mother. We spent alot of time outside on Mother's Day! I did get to sleep in and Colby snuck in and whispered Happy Mother's Day. He made me a bunch of stuff and I got a balloon! We ate a wonderful lunch at Tommy's, did more stuff outside and then we went and shot clay rocks out to Bley's. It was a lot of fun and Kara is the best cook, so you always eat good out there! The whole day was great and I am so lucky to be a MOM! We almost didn't have Kalli and you think back about what your life would be without your kids and you can't even imagine! I thank God everyday for my life even the bad days could always be worse!
I don't like pictures of me, but here is one thanks to Gayle.
Sister-in-law Gayle with a loaded gun!?!
Ok so Bley's have a trampoline and I jumped in with the kids, everyone that walked by told me boy I wish I had a camera after I was done, I let them all in on a secret, I have a camera. So after a while I caught Todd and Gayle jumping with the kids!
Colby and Trace are going to be in preschool together next year and I think they are already getting into trouble!


Fun with Friends

We got the pleasure of babysitting Kendra and Collin Bley the other day! We all had a lot of fun! We took walks, looked at the river, made crafts and LOTS OF PLAYING OUTSIDE!
Showing Off!
Too Cute!
Collin was being safe!
Fun on the slide!
