Ferdinand...The Bull

After the Christmas mayhem died down we took a walk to feed the horses, Pinecone and Oreo, who live at Arc Ridge.  They have grown quite accustomed to whoever is staying at the ranch...whether it be us or my aunt showing up with a bag of apples every time we visit.

Audrey adores the horses and would love one of her own of course.  (Not gonna happen!!)

As, you can of these things is not like the others!!

Can I get you a snack??

Gross!!  We have named the bull Ferdinand of course.  He is actually one of four in this corral with the horses.  We have named all four of the bulls Ferdinand...of course.

After the the slobberfest we took a long walk, and I actually got all five of my kiddos together...smiling!  I just love it!!!  Makes mama smile!!

Happy Holidays!!!

We Can Make That!!!

We CaN MaKe THaT!

Girl, if I had a dollar for every time I said that... I would be OnE RiCh MaMA!!  Oh come on,  You know exactly what I'm talking about!  Your out shopping with the girls and they start going on and on about how cute some one of a kind "Blinged out Crafty Craft Treasure" thing is, and then it happens:  They just have to have it, and you look at the price and before you can stop yourself out of your mouth comes these words: 
"Have you lost your flippin mind?!! You wanna pay how much for that?  
Girl, We can make that!!" 

(Now,  I am not knockin the "Blinged out Crafty Craft Treasure" items so don't be hatin.  I myself LOVE these items, and often fill a lot of my sleepless nights partakin in this indulgence.  Infact I tend to get a little wacked out and crazed if I haven't hot glued my fingers together in a while if you know what I mean.)

Anywho, I happened to open my mouth recently on our ladies weekend in Canton.  Now, I didn't count how many times I said it, but I think a fair estimation is 4, 362.  One particular item that caught our fancy were these blinged out guitars.  Have you seen them?  Stinkin cute!!!   You take old guitars gaudy 'em up and throw them on the wall.  There you have it!  ART!!!  Totally cute for a little girl's room.  Well, Lynn and Erin came over last week to bling out our guitars as Christmas gifts for our girls because:
Girl, We CaN MaKe THaT!!
Stinkin Cute!!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Tis the season to decorate, and it is beginning to look a whole lot like Christmas around our house!  Come on in and have a look around....

 There's Santa and Elfie keepin' a close eye on everyone.  Now, I'm not gonna name any names but some piles of presents may be dwindling as we speak if you know what I mean!  Uh huh!

As you can tell I have gone for a "more is more" approach this year.   Girl, if only those presents were real...I would be done.  Guess I better quit decorating and start shoppin!!!

My grandmother made this stocking for me when I was a little girl, and it is one of my most treasured possessions.

I would love to see how you decorate for the holidays.  Send me a link to your blog so I can check out your digs.  Kind of like a home style.

Pioneer Woman in Big D!!!

Three Blondies and The Pioneer Woman

Tuesday night I left Hooterville in the freezing cold rain to meet two of My Girls, Becky and Lucinda, in Dallas for the signing of The Pioneer Woman's cookbook and dinner afterwards.  What a great evening; girlfriends, dinner in Dallas, and The Pioneer Woman...I could hardly wait!!!  Becky, Lucinda, and Tony (Lucinda's sweet husband) snagged us the coveted GOLD arm bands that morning which got us into the first signing of the evening!!!  Sweet!!

It only took us about an hour to get to the front of the line, and there she was.  Sweet as ever!!    I would have been nervous as heck...I read one report that there were approximately 800 people there!  Hard to believe!!  She chatted calmly and would sign as many books as you handed her...I had 5.  Not all for me...for friends around the hood!  Her girls were signing books as well and passing out T-Shirts.  I still can't believe how well mannered they were.  Just beautiful!  Lord, my kids would have been swinging from the chandeliers like monkeys at the zoo!  I would've had to slip them a little benedryl before the book signing if you know what I mean (wink! wink!)!

 I read one blog that said they left the book signing at 1:30am.  I am so grateful for our GOLD armbands!!! If we had waited until 1:30am I'm afraid Becky might have looked like this
