Camera fixed!!

I got my software reloaded and everything works fine again. Here is a picture of Jonas with the saddle he won. If you know Jonas very well then you know I had to beg, borrow and steal to get this picture. I am just so proud of him. His horse is only 4 and he has done such a good job bringing him along.

This video is of Noah and Belle playing the other day. Noah loves Belle, but I am not sure the feeling is mutual. Belle loves how Noah gives her food and that is about it. You can see in the video how Belle never takes her eye off his "suck suck" (translation sucker).

We are in the process of a nasty ice storm. They are predicting us to get anywhere from 0.5 to 1 inch of ice. We haven't lost power yet (praying we don't). Luckily Mike and Susan have a propane stove so if worse comes to worse we will at least stay warm over there. While it is nice to stay home and get some things done I am really ready for spring. I don't do cold, that is for sure. Hope everyone has a good day!

Computer Trouble

I am sorry that I haven't posted in the past few weeks but my computer got a virus. When they cleaned the virus off my computer they somehow messed with my camera software and I am having trouble downloading my pictures off my camera. So this post won't have any pictures but hopefully I will get that fixed soon.

Things have been business as usual around here. Noah is getting a few new teeth and that combined with his "ba dems" (translation...bad dreams) have made for some sleepless nights around the Gattis ranch. His dreams have made him not want to sleep in his crib. Our bed was getting really small, really fast, so we borrowed a twin from Susan and he likes that much better. He calls it his "big cot". The sleep on cots at school and he really likes that. I guess he is growing up (tear). His vocabulary is amazing lately. He is now speaking in four and five word sentences. Pretty wild considering he isn't two yet.

Jonas and I had a big weekend and Noah was in heaven between both sets of grandparents caring for him. Jonas went to a roping in Little Rock. He won the roping and won a beautiful saddle. I took some pics and will post them when I get my camera fixed. I went to a barrel racing clinic. It was three days and I learned a ton but boy and I tired.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and I will post some pictures as soon as I get that figured out. I am just too tired to tackle that tonight :)

Sicky Sunday

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week. It seems like the week goes by so fast and then the weekend goes by faster. On Friday night I left for a women's retreat with our church. Although I was dreading leaving my family (I miss the boy's so much when I am gone) I had a wonderful time. We have found a great church and the women are all so much fun.

I took this picture this morning when Noah and I were getting ready for Church. He was fine this morning and then all of the sudden he got sick this afternoon. I am ready for spring so all the winter sickness will go away. He got progressively worse (fever and snotty nose) as the day went on and I am thinking we will have to make a trip to the doctor tomorrow. I am afraid his cold has turned into bronchitis.

Jonas has worked all weekend helping our friends lay water and sewer line for their new house, but Mike and Susan kept Noah today so I could get my horses rode. I am sure my horses would perfer me not getting to ride but I am so thankful for Mike and Susan. Without thier help my horses would be fatter then they already are, ha ha! The weather was beautiful today and I wish it would stay this way a while but I think it is supposed to get cold again tomorrow.

I took this picture when Noah fell asleep in the chair. Isn't he so precious when he sleeps!

This is his "hat". It is actually the box that all his play food for his kitchen came in. But he perfers to wear it as a hat. I call it his "chef hat". He is very into his kitchen. He is always cooking me hot dogs and the other morning he cooked me a donut. I would have given anything for a real chocolate donut, ha ha!

Mount Magazine Trip

We had such a fun day yesterday. My niece Breanna and her boyfriend Luke are here visiting and we thought it would be fun to take them to Mount Magazine for some scenery and a little hike. Although it is much prettier on the mountian in the fall, the weather was perfect (70 degrees) and we had a really fun time.

Then we came back to the house and ordered take out from a great steak house down the road. It was such a fun day. They are planning a trip to Tulsa to visit some museum's and although it would be fun it wasn't a "noah friendly" trip so we decided to stay home.

This last pic was taken on New Year's Eve. I rarely have a picture of Noah and I because I am always the one taking the pictures. Jonas and I were invited to a dinner party at our friend Natalie's house. She fixed her grandmother's famous spagetti and meatball recipe and oh my it was SOOOOO good! We had a really good time.
