Swing set fun!!!

For Christmas this year, Nana and stinky pop got all the grandkids a swing set. Well, there is one of the grandkids that absolutely LOVES it!! McKinley has so much fun on the swings, and sliding, and "she can't reach the monkey bars". I guess time will help that! But for now, look at the smiles on her face from just the swings!! THANK YOU NANA AND STINKY POP!!!!

Emily went to cheer camp about 2 weeks ago.....at "her school".. How cool is that? And as an added bonus to going to cheer camp, she got to do a halftime routine at the VARSITY football game... Now that is cooler than cool!! Here are some pics of her and the varsity cheerleaders and some of her classmates. Needless to say, she had a blast!!

GO SPARTANS!!!!!! EEE with a B, BBB with an A, E with a B, B with an A, EBA!! (this is all I hear!!)

Meet Ruby

Emily has been wanting a puppy for awhile now. The catch was she didn't want the puppy to grow to be as big as Harley. As luck would have it, Shane's aunt's dog which was a shihzu-pekinese had puppies. Ruby was promised to someone else, but that someone wasn't able to take her home, so...........she came home with us! Ruby loves Harley. Harley tolerates Ruby. But occasionally when everything is quiet, we will find them snuggled up together. Right now she needs to go to the beauty parlor!

Actually, I had a dog, Daisy, that looks just like Ruby. I loved her so much. She is living with Granny blue and Robin now, getting fat and sassier!(as they say). I had to give her to them because she didn't like the snow.
Anyway, here they are: Emily and Ruby! Neither one could be happier! They are like 2 peas in a pod. They go everywhere together!!!

I am guessing that anyone who is anybody knows who Hannah Montana is!!! But, just in case you have been living in a sheltered world, I will tell you......Hannah Montana is Miley Cyrus..yes, she is the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus of Achy Breaky heart.... Well, any person who is between the ages of 2 (Mac) and 16(Emily thinks she is) is a HUGE fan of Hannah Montana... Well, last weekend we attended the Hannah Montana 3D concert movie, just me and Emily!! We had a blast.... This is a picture of her before the movie...She was so excited!!!!

This is her afterward!!! She thinks that she would like to become a rockstar just like Hannah Montana when she grows up!!! I told her only if she gives me backstage passes!!!! So everyone start saving your money now.....Because here she is THE ONE THE ONLY EMILY MATTHEWS......

Well, I got a lot of flack for not blogging!!! (You know who you are, GrannyBlue!!!) So, I found this picture and I thought it was a really cute one!! Sweet!!! These are the most precious days, having your baby sink into your arms and loving you. This one was taken in Alaska!! Hopefully, I will get my camera back into my hands and start snapping again!! Things have kinda started slowing down a little!!!! So, Lord willing.......I won't get fussed at any longer!!!

Jacob's first deer

Hey guys, I am back!!! Mom let me use her card reader while I am still searching for the cord for my camera uploads!!! Thanks mom!! And quite frankly I forgot all about blogging until I was reminded!!! The Saturday after Thanksgiving, Jacob killed his first deer!!! He saw it, aimed, and took the shot all by himself!! I am so proud, as is his daddy!!!(and Pop)!! You probably can't tell by the look on his face, but he is pretty excited about it too!! HAHA This deer actually ended up weighing in at 150 pounds, he was an 8 point with a 14 inch spread!! Pretty good for the first one! So, congrats baby!!!!

ALL I CAN SAY IS YUCK!!!! It is so a guy thing!!!

Proud cousins!!!!
