Last Show!!

We had our last show of the season this morning! Merritt got 1st in Halter, 5th in Leadline, and 2nd in Walk-Trot! I think he will end up 2nd in Halter, 4th in Leadline, and 2nd in Walk-Trot for the year!! We are so very proud of our little buckaroo!

They had such a fun time with their buddy Kayle today!

Just a little pick me up before Leadline!!

until next year!!! :) 


One Last Hurrah!

I wanted to have one last fun day before we head back to school next week,
 so we went with Lydia and JoJo (and baby Claire) to the zoo!

After the zoo, we got some ice cream, then headed to Walmart! I told them they could both pick out a prize, so we went down every boy isle twice while they decided between Rescuebots and Legos! McCoy ended up picking out a small Lighting McQueen Lego set and Merritt got a new Rescuebot figure! McCoy declared he wants all the Cars 3 Lego Juniors on his Christmas list, I must admit they are pretty cute! Merritt also got to see all the new Jungle Legos in person and LOVED them, but they were out of the small set, so he chose the Rescuebot, and decided to put the Jungle Legos on his list! Yes, we are already thinking about know me!! haha!!

Then they got to do a ride, I think they are getting a little small for this one!!

I had to get a pic of this beast of a cart they made me push!! I only hit a few people!! hehe!

Great day with my boys! We will miss you summertime!


This Week!

Finally got the boys pics with the corn! Love doing this at the end of each summer!

Then they played on the earlage pile!

Both boys have really been into playing rodeo lately...this is their extensive arena setup!

Love playing Yeti In My Spaghetti!

On Friday, we froze sweet corn! 


Little stinker!!

McCoy Everett 3 Years Old!

Yall! My baby is three!! 
I'm not sure how it happened but his little attitude proves it every day, he is THREE!

He weighs 36 pounds and is 38 inches!

He wears mostly 3T and some 4T clothes and has been potty trained for almost a year now!

He no longer takes a nap, unless he is just really tired and falls asleep watching tv!

He still loves being a cowboy, farming with his Daddy, The Lone Ranger, and playdoh! His new faves are playing rodeo, Legos, Imaginext pirates, any kind of pretend play/dress-up, and Rescuebots! 

He loves arts and crafts or "projects" as we call them! 

His favorite shows are Umi Zoomi, Bubble Guppies, any Lego shows, Rescuebots, Miles From Tommorwland, Alvin and The Chipmunks, Lone Ranger Cartoons, Peppa Pig, and Blaze and The Monster Machines. His favorite movies are Wreck It Ralph, The Three Musketeers (Disney Mickey Mouse Version), Despicable Me/Minions, and Sing!

His favorite foods are pizza, any fruit, lunchables, nuggets, hot dogs, nutrigrain bars, cheese, lemonade and frosty freezie freezes! His favorite candy is Laffy Taffy ropes (which he calls haffy taffy), Air Heads, fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls, and the list goes on and on!!

He starts three year old preschool and Sunday School in a few weeks and couldn't be more excited! He can not wait to horse show next year and ride a sheep just like Merritt!

He can sing the ABC's, count to 15, knows his colors and shapes, can spell his name, knows he lives in Iowa (although sometimes tells you he lives in South Dakota!), knows Whoop and Honey live in Mississippi, and Rex and Maddox live in Louisiana! He has a crazy good memory, so don't tell him anything you don't want repeated!

He still loves to read and never met a book he didn't like! His current faves are Crankenstien and Dragons Love Tacos! And he continues to love all the Eric Carle books as well!

This summer, bedtime has been around 8:00/8:30pm and he usually is up by 7:00am, but would really sleep in, if his brother was a little more quiet in the morning!! He wont shut an eye unless he has his puppy, wubby, and blankie!

Our little CoyBoy is definitely strong willed, sassy, demanding, bossy, and impatient...but he is also hilarious, sweet, and kind when he wants to be and we love every bit of him to pieces!! 
Our family wouldn't be complete without our little Toot...Coyzie....Tiger!! 
Can't wait to see what the next year brings!!

Weekend Re-cap!

We actually had a weekend at home and we enjoyed every minute of it!!

I switched out the baby swing for a regular one and I had two happy boys and one sad me!! 

Enjoying their favorite snack! Nutella!

We had a little picnic outside...sweet corn and BLTs!!

Kubota ride!!

He loves to drive...I mean stop growing up already!

Ended Friday night with a "campfire" as McCoy would say!!

It started to rain after the picnic, so we brought the fire into the garage!



Saturday was "Honey Do" day!! hehe!! The Farmer got this laundry sorter built for me!
I am slowly but surely re-doing the laundry room and this is going to be soo nice!!

He also built this Ikea storage I got for the Legos! 

Made the labels with my Cricut! Love how it turned out!

Such a great weekend, now bring on the last full week before school starts!! 
Summer, you are just never long enough!!

10 on 10!!

I had the best 10 on 10 yesterday! I met up with some besties and we had a fabulous girls day!!

spa pedicures!!

fall toes!!

They were having a cake decorating challenge at the mall! So fun to watch!!

loved this bbq one!

my color loving heart was drawn to these icing bags!!! #rainbowlove

Next we went to Bath and Body Works! Got some fall scented wall flowers, a Marshmallow pumpkin (my fave!) body butter, a smores anti bac, and a Hello Beautiful fragrance mist!

After the mall, we headed to Micheal's! They had Happy Planners on sale and I wanted to check them out! Fell in love and opted to get one this year instead of Erin Condren...i LOVED my Erin Condren planners but the price difference was just too good to pass up! Oh and like I was going to leave this minty/turquoise pumpkin on the shelf!?! No way, he came home with me!! :)

 Finally lunch at Mackenzie River...our fave!! :)

When I got home, it was time for ReFit!! 
After a day of indulging (Dark Chocolate Frappuccino and Lodge Pole bread sticks) 
this was a must!! :)

MOPS planning is in full swing! Our Steering Retreat is in a few weeks, 
so I am busy personalizing all these goodies! Can't wait to share with you!! 

And how cute is my latest creation?!?! Can't wait to sport it this fall!! 

Hope you had a great 10th!! :)
