December Happenings

Every year Terence's Aunties put on a charity event called "Celebrity Cutting". It is a lot of fun to attend and you get to see lots of neat people riding some horses! I never knew what cutting a horse was until we started going to this, to me it's like playing chicken between a horse and a cow....see which one gives up first! You have to make sure the cow doesn't join the rest of the heard and your job is to steer it away from the rest of the cattle with your horse.

Here is Aunt Beverly & Aunt Lyn in all their cowgirl glory
This is Liz and Paul (T's brother) with Kristy Lee Cook
She was on American Idol a few seasons back and now she's a country singer
Terence's lovely parents :)
Me & Terence (I was tired...long day!)
Terence & his Aunt Loyce
Liz & Paul


Okay onto other miscellaneous and non-important stuff....
We made our first fire in the house Thursday night! I love the smell of fireplaces...mmmmm...
Does that make me weird? It snowed one morning last week and it was so pretty! I need to be spanked because I didn't get a picture and it is very RARE it Texas for snow. I made some BLT's for dinner and we just sat down in front of the fire and watched TV-good times!
Gulp! Baby Connor likey bacon!
And YES-I am going to hang that clock somewhere in the house, I just don't know where...so for right now it rests on the mantle until I find a picture I like or something. Also want to find some floral something or other for those blue vases....it's a work in progress!
Okay now I'm going to get Ter-bear out of the bed so we can do some Christmas shopping! We celebrate Christmas next weekend with his family and we haven't got a darn thing yet!
Happy Weekend Everyone!

The smell of a fire is one of my absolute favs! I've never heard of "cutting" but it looks like fun!

I love the fire smell too! We haven't cranked our fireplace up yet but I think we might tonight while we watch some football! I didn't get a picture of the snow either- my kindergarten kids were super excited about the 30 seconds we did get! Ha! BTW, I love the name Connor! I have a Connor in my class this year and he is absolutely precious. I haven't met a Connor yet that I didn't love!

Loving the smell of fireplaces definitely does not make you weird. For me its due to the smokey-ness smell.

And I definitely remember Kristy Lee Cook from Idol. Good to hear she's still singing

I bet that was fun! Cutting is one of my most favorite rodeo events to watch. Lovin' the fireplace picture, your house looks so cozy!

I love the smell of fires too...unfortunetly the bottom of our fireplace has become a graveyard for burnt up dead lizaeds so I think we might skip it.

My uncle used to train cutting horses. I love horses, but not the work involved. LOL Looks like you guys had a great time.

Once I was a horse owner and the cutting event was something I enjoyed a lot.
