The Wedding!!!!!

We just got home from a week in Az getting things ready for Clayton (Trav's little brother) and Mary's wedding and reception. We worked our little butts off getting things done for the reception but it was worth it, it turned out AMAZING thanks to my sis in laws incredible talent and vision.  She had almost everything already planned out and just needed the man, and woman, power to pull it all off.  It was a beautiful day that started at the Temple with a sweet sealing by a sweet man.  Then we had the day to finish up the details of the reception and then the PARTY started!
Ally and her DADDY, she is so in love with her dad it melts my heart!

 Some of the cute pictures of the two love birds and some of their cute decor
 The cake. It was so stinkin cute. It was upside down ruffles and my sister in law Amy is amazingly talented!
 The groomsmen waiting for their turn with the photographer!  Pretty sure the one second from the left is HOT!
 Sweet BOYS, even with Grady having both fingers in his nose, ha ha
 Angel Girls
 More Cuteness!  My cute husband did this sign and the other wood sign, he is adorable!
 See, he IS adorable
 Hillary made the perfect little table to honor Kristi and Phil!!! They would have been so proud of the whole DAY...

 This room was the talk of the night.  They had their receiving line here and their "dance" and it was so elegant and gorgeous and we got so many compliments on it, it made the 3 days of figuring out how to put it up and putting it up all worth it!

 Their sign in table

 The whole gang! Clay's side of the family

It was a wonderful time with family and friends and we are so proud of Clayton and Mary! Welcome to the crazy Sherwood Family Mary, we love you!

Family Pictures Dec. 2010

 Our House before we started remodel

 Cayden's football team won the Super Bowl for the second year in a row! Go DAWGS. We are so proud of our Dawg, Cayden, he is a GREAT little running back.

 The "big" snow storm we had Jan 2011

 Our Beautiful Ally on her first day of 4th Grade.
 Cayden at a baseball tournament in Ruidoso, NM.  He was on the Thunder team.
 Cayden was one of the kids chosen at end of 5th grade to compete in the city track meet. He ran a couple single races and a relay. He did really well. This is the group of Tombaugh kids that got selected to go.

 This was at Clint Black concert
 So Sweet! Grady and Grandpa Rowley
 Grady and dirt and mud and bugs are one in the same so you can imagine how much fun it was for him that he got to go with mom to the 5th grade "water-day" and get as muddy as he wanted. 
 Grady was a FISH this summer, he is a great little swimmer now

 At horse race in Ruidos, NM
 Kids had a blast at the Lake this summer, I love their faces in this one.

 Travis turned 34!
 What a stud!

Where does all the time go????

What happened to the days of "spare time" and play dates at the park and going to the gym????? I don't know how but they have seemed to completely disappear. I can't remember the last time I have been to the gym (this is  kind of a big deal if you know me) or had a day where I have thought to myself "what should I do today".  Schedules, practices, games, homework, more games, essential oil classes, conventions, training meetings, canning, planning, and preparing are the only things on my to do list these days. I am not complaining, everything that fills my time right now is GOOD and I am enjoying it all, it just seems so strange to me that the days, weeks and months literally seem to be slipping by.
Cayden is playing football again, they have to defend that superbowl title from last year, and LOVES it. He is playing really well and has improved a lot from last year. He is running the ball smarter and harder. He is a running back and seems to score at least once every game. Last game he scored ALL 3 of the touchdowns. We couldn't be more proud of him, he is doing really well both in school and football.
Ally is our same sweet little girl she has always been. She has joined the Dona Ana Youth Choir and really enjoys that. We were all very surprised at how well they sounded the first concert we went to, harmonized and everything. She also tried out for all state choir and we were really proud of her for doing that. Regardless the outcome it took a lot of bravery to do it and we are really happy with her for sticking it out. She is also taking a scrapbook class after school on Mondays and she really enjoys that as well. She is our little social bug and ALWAYS wants to have friends over. I think I remind her every week that we don't play with friends during the week only on Friday or Saturdays!
Grady is HILARIOUS, he keeps us laughing daily. He is so sweet and I just love that kid. Every morning he wants to come snuggle with me and I love that. He is in preschool and growing up way too fast. I look at him and start to see this change as he turns into a boy and not a little toddler anymore, makes me sad.  He says the cutest, funniest things and it surprises me how smart he is when he talks about something I had no idea he even knew what it was.
Travis and I are good, busy buys. Travis got done with a 2 month Jury Duty. He served on a murder/death penalty trial and it was NOT fun. He heard and saw things he wishes he never wanted to but it is finally over and we are really happy about that. Being in jury duty all day and working some nights and weekends was a very stressful thing for him. He handled it like a champ though and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband. I am doing well.  I am working for a company called doTerra. It is an essentail oils company and I teach classes for people to educate them on what essential oils are, how they work and how to use them. I LOVE it, I love the oils and I love helping people have an alternate way to care for their families. It is such an empowering feeling to be able to treat something yourself and rely on the tools you have to take care of some basic needs. I feel this is important and another aspect of becoming self reliant and I LOVE doing it. It keeps me pretty busy, which is good. I enjoy having things going on that keep me from being bored, but I wouldn't mind a day here and there to relax and read a book, ha ha yeah right huh?  Here's a few pics from over the summer!
Grady at the end of last school year, I was helping with 5th grade water day and he joined right in.
