Well it is getting that time of the year! Kaid is a Junior so he decided that he would go to Prom. He asked Natalie. He did not get a photo of how he asked her (mainly because he is a boy and doesn't care about it) But he got a stuffed dog and a bunch of candy and wrote a note and tied it to the collar of the dog that said "I'd Roll over and beg for you to go to prom with me". It was really cute.
Well last week Nat answered him back....This time I got photos.

I loved this- In case you can't read it, it says "Kaid no need to roll over or beg me to go, I'm all out of breath, my answer is .....(Pop the balloons to find my answer)
This is the balloons that where on the floor of his bedroom.

He had tons of balloons in his room, some of them even had glitter in them so when he popped them it went all over! But her answer was YES! So now we have to get a tuxedo and all of that fun stuff. Yeah! Nat got her dress this weekend so we now know what colors we are needing to match. I will post more after prom.

17 years and Counting

Wow, I can't believe that we have been married that long! It seems like yesterday that we were getting married. I pulled out our engagement photos and our wedding album. Man we were skinny! And I don't think I have seen Colby's hair that long since Beaver dared him to die it black. I think back to the day that we got married, it was such a special day. I am so lucky to be married to the man of my dreams. Colby has always been such a hard worker and provided for our family. We have been through a lot in our married lives; 22 moves, separations (due to work), 3 kids, 2 dogs, 3 horses, 4 pigs, pheasants and chickens, extended hospital stays, surgeries, going to college, etc.. And we have lived to tell the story! I am so glad that we take the journey together.

Here's to many, many more years together! I can't wait to see what life throws at us next and to be able to grow old with you and sit out and watch the sunsets.
For our anniversary this year poor Colby got sick (so did Brock) so we went to dinner on Friday night and then on Saturday Colby, Me, and Brock went to the Hunting Expo. It was a lot of fun, they were geared more towards kids that the other Expo that we went to last month. Brock got to catch a fish, and we watched the dogs in the big pool. We then went out to dinner and a movie, it was a lot of fun to just be able to spend time with Colby.
I love you!

The Results are IN!

That is the BEAR results are in, and yes Colby drew a tag! He is so EXCITED. He can't wait for the hunt to start. When he thinks of bear hunting he gets all excited and just has a smile from ear to ear. When he envisions the hunt he sees a bear like the one above, just a bear. Oh I might of forgot to mention it is an archery tag. So they tell me that you will typically shot your bear 15 -20 yards away!!!! WHO in their right mind would want to be that close to a bear?!?!? Not only that close but you can bait the bears, so seriously who would not only want to be that close to a bear, but a HUNGRY bear!?! I assure you I will not be going on this hunt!

This is not even as scary of a bear as what I envision it being that close. (But on line it says that this is an aggressive bear) This hunt TERRIFIES me. And the best part is Colby put me in for the hunt. LUCKILY my results said UNSUCCESSFUL. (I think that they got it wrong.)
