He'll always look up to his daddy...




Well, I've got both kids down for a nap, Colt is roping and so I've got a few minutes to sit down and blog. Colt has been entering quite a few ropings lately and has another one Sunday afternoon. He's done really well and is loving it, who knows what that could lead to someday. Several of these pictures are from one that we went to in Abilene last week. I LOVE the picture of him sitting on the fence while Ryder is looking up at him.
My latest project has been working on a floor plan for a house that we want to build someday. We just bought land with my inlaws and will start a barn and other little things for now. We probably won't even put our house on the market for another couple years. It just depends on how long it takes to save the money that we need. We've been out to the land several times over the past month and Ryder absolutely loves it out there. He's quite the outdoorsman and would stay outside all day if given the choice.
It's amazing how fast both of them are growing up. Syndey turned 5 months yesterday and is wearing 9-12 month clothes because she's so long. She still spends the majority of her day sleeping in the swing, but when she's awake, she's nothing but smiles and laughs. She is such a happy baby. Ryder spends most of his time on the trampoline, riding his jeep or playing with his trucks and tractors. He has a new fascination with trailers, tractors and ropes. I wonder why??? I think he's going to be our little farm boy/cowboy and that's fine with me. He's so full of energy and loves to climb on anything he can find. The other day, he was yelling our names and so we walked into the kitchen to find him hanging off the fridge. We have a side by side and he had both hand on the handles and had walked his feet up to his hands. He was literally hanging vertically from the fridge.
We've been so blessed to end up with two awesome kids. Well, I better run because I've got to make a bow for Sydney's church dress tomorrow. Most of these pics are of Ryder, because Syndey stayed with my mom; more of her later. Hope everyone has a great week.

Ryder sounds just like our Cason. Watch out! We already had a broken arm by the time he was three. The Amy on my blog is not Amy Myers. It is Amy (Lynch) Carder. She went to ACU.
You make bows ?!? :)

Oh my goodness that is THE BEST picture. I love all the pictures. Ryder needs some boots for the arena--little flip flop cowboy?!

Funny that yall say that because "Super Looper" magazine (it's a roping magazine) pays $200 for a cover picture. I talked about sending it in, but Colt says theres no way because neither one of them are "Cowboyed up" in that pic. I may try it anyway. It's still going to be printed out and hung in my house!

That is too cute! I think that it is cool that they are both the "casual" cowboy. Ryder is handsome!
