Happy Halloween!

We squeezed in a little pumpkin carving just in time for Halloween!

They decided we needed to use cookie cutters on their pumpkins this year.
We had to get out multiple tools to assist the process and I'm pretty sure we ruined a few cookie cutters!
But we had fun!

Peighton did not want a traditional jack-o-lantern and just hammered shapes into hers.
I think she liked the hammering.

Charlie the cat joined us for some pictures too.


This boy LOVES soccer!

He had another great season and is sad that it's already over!

He's an intense goalie.

He got quite a few good kicks in this year.
It's fun to see how much he has improved since last year!

LOVED watching him be the goalie!

He can't wait for next year!

A "Royally" Good Time at the American Royal!

We had a fantastic weekend showing at the American Royal for the first time!
It was a tough show but she held her own and showed her heifers like the champion that she is.

Dustin left with the heifers earlier in the week.
The kids and I left Friday after I picked them up early from school.

It's a 4 1/2 hour drive from our house.
They watched cartoons for ONE HOUR and then told me they were "SUPER BORED."
They aren't big TV watchers but I had hoped they would be just this once!
The next 3 1/2 hours were filled with Peighton making up the funniest games with random items from the back seat.
It was very entertaining and I wish I could have joined in!
They had me cracking up the whole way there.

I don't have any pictures of Preston and what he did all weekend but I wish I did!
At one point he was so dirty he had to be blown off with the blower that we use on the calves...including his hair...
He made a new friend that was his partner in crime all weekend.
We'll be seeing him at many more shows to come!

Peighton did a great job with Princess Anna once again.

These two have had a great year of shows.

A picture at the backdrop was a MUST.

Cinderella got to go on this trip too.

They did a good job for their first time.

One last trip back to the barn.

We didn't come home with any banners but we did bring home some ribbons she's pretty proud of and lots of great memories.
She told me on the way home she's ready to go again!
