Losing the Battle

My hormones have been raging a war against me the past few days, and I have been losing to their wrath over and over, which unfortunately comes out as wrath on my family.
I've been grumpy and mean, whiny and pouty and cry-y.
Yesterday at the rodeo everytime people cheered tears would well up in my eyes.
Tyrel has also chose this point in time to test the boundaries and make sure they are still there. He was not feeling well the past several days so I let him get away with stuff I shouldn't have, and now and reaping the fruit of my laziness.
Normally I am an easygoing, not over emotional person...unless happy to the point of hyper active is overly emotional.
Anyways I am alright right now. There has been plenty of happy in between the not so happy of this roller coaster, hopefully I will get it under control soon. I certainly haven't been able to do it on my own, but with God's help I'm sure I will.
In other news, Here are some pictures.

Just woke up. He didn't want me taking his picture


Self Portrait of Tyrel and I


Yesterday we went to the rodeo. It was fun. Poor Stephen as much as he loves rodeo's, everytime we go to the coliseum he gets a headache. One of the saddle bronc riders was named Tyrell Smith, I wanted to get his autograph for Tyrel but we didn't.

I also got to clog in public for the first time the day before yesterday. I only knew one of the dances they did, so I only danced once, but it was fun. It was to "Amos Moses".

There were monkeys and kangaroo's at the fairgrounds. The spider monkey looks really evil.

Well anywho, I can't really think of anything else.

Have a nice day.

Setting the stage for the future?

The other day when we were going to bed, I asked Tyrel if he wanted to kiss the baby and got by him where he could kiss my tummy if he wanted to. He looked up and me and grinned, then punched my belly. Fighting with his siblings already. He DID kiss it after that though, and got a lesson in NOT hitting people.
I know he doesn't really understand right now what is going on, with us talking about a baby, and probably won't til the baby is here, but we are still talking to him about it.

Oh and I don't know if anybody noticed the little baby thing on the side (Its gone now, so don't look for it) but just letting you know that if you did and noticed it was gone, it is not because we have lost the baby, I just thought it was creepy and took it off.

Farmer Boy

These pictures remind me of the "Been farming long?" picture. The one from like the 90's with two little boys in overalls.
Anyways, the scrapes on his nose came from him falling off the porch swing and breaking the fall with his face. He is a tough hombre, that one.
In other news, we went to pick up a load of cows yesterday. I almost never go with Stephen anymore, but since he was taking James' gooseneck and pickup, we figured there was plenty of room for Tyrel and I to tag along. It's a good thing too.
As they were shutting the gate on the second cut of cows, one turned back on Stephen. From my point of view outside the pens with Ty, I saw someone come flying backwards out of the trailer, trampled over the top of by a cow, with others streaming by. I thought he had been stepped on at least once if not more, but praise God he wasn't. He did end up hurting his knee really badly, so I drove back.
He is off driving the big truck today, although he said once he gets in he is not getting out until they are done for the day, which means extra work for Tommy, but that's all right. LOL.
