Time Flies When You're Having Fun!!

We have been resting comfortably at home this past week.  The WRCA Finals usually get the best of us.  This year we got the sickness out of the way prior to going.  We have still been a little on the tired side though.  The weather sure cooperated for us.  Well, it cooperated as much as it possibly could considering we are in the panhandle of Texas.  Notice Reno is sporting his Sandhill t-shirt as he and Papa take in the first performance on Thursday evening.
This is Mr. Linc!  He is the grandson of Aunt Tandy's BFF, Judy.  He is so cute and outgoing too.  Reno was being grouchy so they didn't really play together.

On Friday, the Little Queen B arrived from San Antonio.  Can you tell how excited my kiddos were to see her?

This child definitely has a mind of her own, kind of like her cousin Scout.  Later on as we shopped around the trade show, Kaitlyn tried some little handmade boots on her.  Good thing they fit, because I'm pretty sure they were getting them regardless.  I'm not sure if she wore anything else the whole time.
I tried getting a pic of she and Scout in their matching shirts, but she wasn't having it. **See the boots?  Love them!

Gigi and Papa swam with them Friday and Saturday evening before the rodeo.  That was nice, because I would disappear into my room to get ready all by my lonesome.  I did take any pics of my outfits, but don't worry, they weren't that great anyways.
Reno was OK with swimming with Gigi.  Of course I didn't get a picture of that.  This one cracks me up because he blends in with the chair cushion.  White Boy Camo!!
I think this picture turned out so good.  When we asked Reno to go stand by Gigi and Papaw you can see that he didn't exactly get anywhere near them.  Everyone is looking and almost everyone is smiling.  
Have I mentioned that Saylor Quinn wants nothing to do with me?  Little Squirt!  I may have to remind her of this someday.  She really only loves Papaw, well and her Uncle Riley.  One night after the rodeo he had her and she didn't even want to go to her Mama.  That made me feel a little better, or wait...maybe worse.  lol
Excuse my fabulous photography!  It is starting to get serious.  I must start toting my good camera around.  Unfortunately I probably can't do much better with it.  Who wants to do a guest post about photographing in the dark with bright outdoor lights?  I need you.
How about lets talk fashion for a minute.  I got this shirt at the Rusty Rose a local boutique owned by my sweet friend Andrea. It says "Property of Texas USA" and is so versatile.  Put it with a blazer or my new favorite Wal-Mart Aztec thermal.  The possibilities are endless.
Speaking of fashion or fashionable....I'll bet if you looked the word up in the dictionary you would find this girl and her sister's name.  These two dress so fun and are beautiful to boot.  Boot, don't get me started on boots.  Summer is quite the artist.  She can paint anything you'd like.  She even sells a few clothes too.  Look Cherrycow Headquarters up on Facebook or go to her blog from here.  Oh wait, she updates her blog less than me.     

Reno is finally learning how to hold a pen.  He was busy writing all one afternoon during the ranch horse competition.  Saturday morning at the horse sale the squirts found the dirt.  That probably helped them feel a little more at home.

See Mimi's great wild rag?  I didn't get a pic of the coolest outfit that she wore.  Forget blogging about my own outfits, I need to start posting about my Mama.  This lady has style.  She always has cool, custom or handmade accessories.  She is sporting a cool new custom engraved ring this year too.  Love it!!  

So now I realize that I haven't even touched the surface.  I haven't told you how the rodeo went, about the colt we bought, the blogger friends I met up with, the ranch horse contests, mine and Scout's new Kansas friends....What am I forgetting? 

There's more to come!

Where did they get Miss Saylor's boots? Just curious because a good friend of mine builds boots, and always has a booth with her dad. She started making her little girl boots, so made me wonder if she brought some to sell! I never ran into her while we were there!!
Love your style, girlie! And Summer's too, wish I could do the headband thing, but alas, its not to be for me. ;)

Wow, y'all had a good ole time, can't wait to hear about the rest of it!! Love all the pictures, the kiddos are too cute! ;)

Yes, I love your style, too, and Summer's, as well! There is plenty of cute stuff out there, I just have a heck of a time finding it, and pairing it. Ha! ;)

Thphose boots, the turquoise ones.. yeah Miss Teale needs some!

And Summer (right) I love her stuff on instagram and 'liked' her facebook page. I am going to order a bag for myself as my birthday present next month. She always looks SO cute!
