Beef expo 2017

It was a beautiful weekend for the Beef Expo!
We could not have asked for better weather.

One of the best parts this year was the craft contest!
Peighton entered a super cute bag and WON!
She's already planning what to make next year.

She had some of her biggest fans there cheering her on and helping her out.

Waiting to go into the ring...Dad and Grandpa making sure everything is perfect.

Miss Anastasia is Peighton's current fave.
Peighton loves her some red heifers.
She hugs her every time she's in the barn.

Peighton did a great job showing her.
Unfortunately, she chose to eat and drink very little the whole weekend-we've decided she's a bit of a picky princess.

Then there is Drizella.
She drank an entire bucket before going in and enjoyed the all-you-can-eat buffet!
She is the complete opposite of Anastasia.

Peighton did a great job with both of her girls.

It's been fun watching her confidence grow each time she steps in the ring!
Can't wait for the next one!

BEST Christmas break EVER!

We had the best Christmas break ever.
These two are so much fun right now.
Peighton had a list of activities for us to do over break and we almost got to all of them!

Peighton had 4 teeth pulled the day they got out of school, but she was still up for ice skating on Christmas Eve, two days post teeth!

She has become quite good at ice skating!

Preston has improved a ton since the last time we went!

Christmas morning gets better each year.

Peighton had a really hard time thinking of anything she needed this year.
She finally came up with a few items.
One was a hot pink show comb.

Another was a rhinestone covered halter-LOVE.
It's hard to see in the picture but the sides are covered in glittery stones.

And Santa threw in a hot pink water bucket too!

She will be hard to miss in the barn and the show ring this year.

He wanted a real cowboy hat-he still has a thing for bull riding.
He got a semi with a grain hopper from Santa but I must have missed a picture with that.

Preston also asked Santa for camo gloves...Cy enjoyed them as well.

New chairs for camping and showing got delivered as well.
They were great for Christmas snacking too!

All the boys got a service truck like Tish from Grandma Sue!
Suddenly EVERYTHING is broke down and needs repaired.

Then we headed to Fun City for a night of FUN!
Go Carts, Laser Tag, more go carts and swimming were some of the faves.

We had to grab a quick Icee before we were done.

On New Years Eve we decided to take the kids skiing for the first time!

Preston was SUPER mad at me here because I made him wear a face mask under his helmet.
I'm pretty sure he appreciated it eventually while he was skiing. ;-)

They both did amazingly well and had so much fun in Ski School!
They loved skiing as well as the hot chocolate break and riding from slope to slope behind a 4-wheeler with tracks!

They both said they are ready to go again!
I think a trip to the mountains is in our future!

Now they are back to school-they were both ready.

Well...we enjoyed the snow while it lasted!

These two couldn't wait to get outside after church Sunday morning!

They got right to work building a snowman.
The cats, Charlie and Cupcake, were their assistants.

Cupcake hung around the whole time.
Black blob = Cupcake.

They decided on a "Sinclair Tractor" hat for their snowman.
They came in for a hot chocolate break and went back out again!

That afternoon Santa came to West Chester!
 We make sure to see him at Grandpa's school in West Chester each year.
There's crafts and snacks and Santa always brings a bag of goodies for the kids!

Peighton...super tall next to Santa!

Preston looks as big as Santa this year.

And of course, Christmas jammie pictures.

Love this one.
He really does love his sister.
She tolerates him.

The whole family.

Peighton is TEN!!!!

She's TEN!

And Awesome.
And Amazing.

I spent the better part of a day baking and decorating about 48 rainbow cupcakes.
They were awesome but it'll be awhile before I make them again!!!

The birthday girl wanted another skating party.

No complaints from this guy!
He is getting to be a really good little skater!

I loved when I looked over and saw the big girls helping Hayden!

Pretty sure this was the YMCA!

He's "fast like lightening."

She didn't win but we all had fun!

Everyone loved their slice of the rainbow!

She has been working on her skating tricks and is getting awesome!

Super fun skating party celebrating our most favorite ten year old!
