George Ranch

A few weekends ago (after gustav and before Ike) Matt & I went to visit my brother Cameron and my new sister in law Mariamgely in Houston.  We went by the George Ranch where they still have a working farm. It was really cool to see that they had  houses from different periods in time. They also had a cattle show, where they showed us what they would really do when they are roping them in. I felt so bad for the calves...but they seemed used to it. Here are a few pics from the wknd. Below is an old beautiful church, little chicks that cameron saved from the sunlight,  one of the old houses and the cowboy show. The bottom pics are of us playin around. lol.

Humming season

Before Matt and I moved we had a  little oasis in our backyard (as I like to call it). We had bird feeders, corn for the squirrels, and a resident snake matt didnt tell me about till we moved. Thank goodness. We tried to make our new apartment feel like home so we brought a few of our plants and our hummingbird feeder to put on our balcony.  Since the seasons are changing (unfortunately not in the south, but somewhere) we are starting to see more of our hummers come around to eat before they fly south.  Right before Ike came (the hurricane) we saw like 4-6 of them fighting to eat.  They are really funny birds.  Sometimes they dont see us when they are fighting and almost run into us.  Here are a few of them trying to catch a bite.

Hurricane Guests!

We had the great pleasure this labor day wknd to have matt's sister and her 3 children visit.  They came to visit because Gustav was visiting their house. I was a little nervous because we now live in a small apartment and I was afraid we might get tired of each other. But, it didnt seem that way once we all settled in. I actually had a GREAT time.  We did tons of shopping and went to the movies, and spent lots of "quality" time together. The girls are 13 and 12, and Logan is 8. We talked about boys and played charades. I took them by my work to show them the longhorn cows in the front yard of my office. I am totally amazed by these HUGE things. Here's a few pics of us playin around! I wish everyone in La. the best with the storm and I hope everyone had minimal damage! God Bless!
