"Rock-a-bye 5 babies in the tree top".............She won't have it any other way now.
Also thought I'd go ahead and share the latest. She stayed with Hope and the kids while Riley, Reno and I went to Amarillo on Monday. We didn't get home until 9 that evening. When we got to our house she was hungry and claimed that she had only eaten ice cream all day long. We pretty much believed her but we knew she had been offered something better.
I asked her what Hope ate for supper just to get some sort of answer. Nothing. Next I asked her what Autumn ate for supper. Her reply, "crap ham".
Turns out that she and Autumn had a snack while they watched Nemo together. What could possibly be called "crap ham"? beef jerky
There will never be a such thing as beef jerky ever again. Oh and they really had quesadillas for supper but I still haven't heard a word about them.
Peace, Love, & somtimes Scout tells big "windys"

Andy, oh Andy....we left him in the dust a long time ago. I think Reno weighs about 17 lbs now. This boy is very spoiled and pretty much only eats table food. I'm certain he would chow on a chicken fried steak if we'd let him. He likes refried beans, potatoes, fruit, raw veggies. Maybe we should try listing what he doesn't like. ha
We discovered that he can drink out of a straw. One day I offered it to him and he just did it. It has also been brought to my attention that when Tripp was "babysitting" at Hugo.....he gave him Dr. Pepper. The contest is over. Tripp is the winner so he won't need another drink of coke until he is at least 2!! Thanks!!
Reno has figured out the chasing game. Scout gets down and they crawl all over the house chasing each other. He also thinks it's fun to go under stuff...your legs, the table, the side of sister's teepee. You get the idea. Another trick he knows is to shake his head back and forth as if saying "no". I'm pretty sure he has no clue right now, but that'll come soon enough.
He is already discovered how to throw a fit to get what he wants. Scout did the stiffen up and scream thing at two weeks so we were already used to it with her. This guy has been alot more mellow than she is/was up until this past month. Boy has he cut loose!!This is exactly what I'm talking about!! He also wrinkles up his nose and snorts, which is a Tandy/Tori Townsend trait. Let me tell you, he sure looks ornery when he does it.
This boy is near impossible to bathe. All he wants to do is stand up. I pretty much just dunk him and call it good. Then once he is out, all he wants to do is dive head first back in with sister. Just imagine. It isn't usually too pretty.We have two happy, beautiful chillin' and are sooo thankful for them!!

was the title of this picture in the e-mail from our banker. We use First United Bank Earth branch and sure think a lot of Mr. Phillip York.
Riley tells me...."Oh yeah, I wasn't watching Scout very good when we went into the bank and they should've sent you an e-mail with her picture."
I guess Crystal was letting her be a teller while Riley was "taking care of business".
Happy Tuesday!!! BTW....it's raining a little here. Not sure how much but we'll take anything.

We met the rest of the bunch there on Friday afternoon. It has become tradition to camp out there and we always have a great time. There are two rodeo performances, a ranch horse competition, and this year a friendly game of Dollar Tree plastic baseball. I'm sure people thought we were drinking a little early in the afternoon!
Four guys horseback, two 500 - 600#ers turned lose from different ends of the arena. Full-blast-it to the cattle, you and your partner take one, the other two guys take the other, duh. Head and heel your steer.
Play peek-a-boo with your auntie to pass the time...
