Capitan, USA

Here is a picture I took during Smokey Bear Days in Capitan. This is our main street Smokey Bear Blvd. We are across the street from Smokey's Country Market and down the street from The Smokey Bear Motel and Cafe...sensing a theme here?

A few Kinsey things

I keep meaning to post pictures of Kinsey's end of the year awards. Here she is with her Perfect Attendance for the Year Award (she also got a 4th quarter perfect attendance award that looks like the other 3 I've posted).
Kinsey also participated in an art show at the Hubbard Museum of the Southwest that I was not aware of until the picture came home. We were sent a note home but it was not clear on weather our kids had art displayed or not and Kinsey didn't know either. I wish I could have gone to the art show to see it but here she is with her picture.

We went to the dentist yesterday and Kinsey got a great report! No cavities and her teeth are coming in great. Then dentist said she should be loosing her other top middle tooth this week but he doesn't know how long Kinsey's teeth like to stay in ;-) Anyways, she did great for the dental hygienist and dentist. We were in and out in 20 minutes for X-rays, exam, and teeth cleaning. I'm so proud of her.

It's a Texas thing

It's a Texas tradition to have your picture taken in blue bonnets. Here is a picture of my brother, sister, and I in a field of blue bonnets. We went to my Grandmother's funeral over the weekend and found several beautiful patches of blue bonnets along the way. I'll have some more pictures from our trip to Central Texas later. I need to catch up on laundry, dishes, and other stuff first.

Old truck

This old truck was parked in front of the library Saturday. I thought the different colors were interesting. It reminds me of the old black truck my Grandfather used to drive.

I've been at it again!

I've been playing with the look of my blog again and finally think I have it how I want it. I've always liked this template but couldn't find a picture I liked for the top. I saw this one and it just fit. Maybe I'll keep this look for awhile.

Finally a picture of Kinsey's teeth

Here is what Kinsey's mouth looks like now. Her other front tooth is getting very wiggly now. I just love the jaggedy edges her teeth have!
