Friday Picture Dump

Just admit are impressed. I'm even impressed with myself. The deal or maybe I should say motivation is named Kaitlyn Smith. I have this crafty, sweet, technologically advanced sister-in-law that keeps me on my toes.

So now that I'm an "Instagramer" my phone is full of pics and I'll admit it's kind of cool just to see what you snapped all week.

We did a little Christmas shopping (redneck style), played outside, learned to make funny faces, rode bucking broncos, posed in our Hannah Montana gown, and of course relaxed in a bubble bath.

We hope your week was just as SWEET!!

WCRR 2011

We've been at the WRCA Finals in Amarillo all weekend. Lots of cool things happened.

1. We got to see Saylor Quinn for the first time.

She is precious!! Absolutely, positively, 100% precious. She is very much a Smith baby just like Scout and Reno. You can tell that she's going to be a hoot.

Little Miss Attitude!! Shortly after we snapped the photo above she got angry at Reno for touching her arm, well and maybe for digging in her belly button a little. lol

2. Summer designed Sandhill shirts for us to look "cute" in.

Summer, Mimi, & Kelsey

3. The Jumpin Jackrabbits kicked some tail. They placed 2nd in Pokey's Jr Ranch Rodeo.

Hunter, Coach Tandy, Pake, Matthew, & Bray

4. We got to see lots of family and friends. Thanks especially to Chris & Mary Beth and Kenneth & LaRue for being such supporters. Ya'll are much appreciated.

Like Mimi, Like Scout (don't you think?)

5. Sandhill didn't do soo hot in the rodeo, but Trail showed for his first time and Autumn and Tripp usual. Trail was so level headed and did super for his first time.

6. Kaitlyn got me all hooked up with Instagram. Yep, I'm in love now!! Instagram is a photo program that you can do super cool editing and sharing. I think I love it as much as Pinterest.

7. Did I say anything about pretty?

These two had every single cowboy within a 2,000 mile radius drooling this weekend. lol

8. My friend Jennifer didn't get to come. Darn it, I was looking forward to meeting her.

9. Oh, check out Tandy's and Summer's blogs for some other cool pics, etc.

Seamless Dough Sheet

Maybe you all already know about this. I am pretty well known for being "behind the times" on news type stuff.

The other day I had in my mind that I would make sopapilla cheesecake sometime soon. As I reached my little hand up to get Crescent rolls what did I pull down? None other than this Seamless Dough Sheet.

What was my little mind thinking? Wow!! Surely this will be perfect. No more pulling the dough, mending the tears, or trying to smooth out the seams.

This is what it looked like going into the oven. I call that lines and no cream cheese poking out.

Waa Laa!! Love me some sopapilla cheesecake. I know everybody has this recipe but if even just one person didn't know about it then I am helping. lol

Sopapilla Cheesecake

2 cans Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet

or plain crescent rolls
2 - 8 oz pkgs Philadelphia cream cheese

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup cinnamon sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 pan. Spread one dough sheet or can of rolls in the bottom of pan. Whip together softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla and spread over dough. Top with second dough sheet or can of rolls. Pour melted butter over top and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake @ 350 for 35 - 40 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

Ha ha.....I have some left overs in my fridge!

A Normal Day for Us.....

Quick despcrition of a normal day for us since I accidentally captured it (with my phone camera, of course).

Prissy Lady, wearing a pj top of mine that she robbed out of my closet, in her bathroom "doing her hair".

Hmm.....what could have happened? There are hair clips all over the counter and the floor. The drawer it all came out of is chunked in the sink.

Oh and shall I even try to explain the nastiness on the counter? Being the good, patient mother that I am, I allowed her to assist me in dipping strawberries. She was promptly sent to wash her hands. Should I have helped her since she is only three and had it smeared half-way up her arms? Probably so. Did I? No, because.....

I was probably chasing after the little stink that made the other mess.

Have a beautiful, brown, blowing-corn-stalk kind of Saturday!!

Reno - 1 year

Reno is a Buffalo Gap baby....that is he was born on the weekend of the Glasscock Family Reunion in Buffalo Gap. My mom and her cousins are so cool, and weird. They like each other and get together every year. We went this year and arrived home just about an hour before the party started. Yikes!!

I've had a sticky note on my computer for a month and a half that says the things Reno was doing at 11 months. He says, "uh-oh" and usually says it right before he throws something down. He also says, "thank you". He gives 5, plays peekaboo, and waves bye-bye. Mr. Reno is such a monkey and climbs on everything. Most recently he climbed into a chair at the foot of our bed, then onto the table by the chair, next onto the bed, and finally ended up stranded on Riley's bedside table. He has also been able to stand up unassisted in the middle of the floor for at least a month. Just recently he has started this hilarious, wild walking. He'll stand up in the middle of the floor and take off going 9-0. Of course after a couple of steps he goes splat right on his face, stands up and goes again. It is pretty funny. He is starting to last for about 4 or 5 steps now. Not sure when he will officially be walking. I thought he would have at 9 months since he started pulling up at about 6. Never know!!

At his 12 month well check he weighed 19 lb 5.5 oz. Unfortunately I don't remember his exact height. I do know that he is in the 8th percentile for weight and around the 50th percentile for height. He for sure isn't a hoss like his sister.
