Roping - Athens, TX

November has been a super busy month for us and we've enjoyed it! My goal this week is to get caught up on my November blogging before December hits!

We started off the first Sunday in November with a roping that Blake went to in Athens, TX. My dad, Stella, and I drove to Athens to watch Blake compete. Although he didn't win, we still loved seeing him do his thing! I love watching my man rope and ride!

Halloween 2012

I can't believe I'm a week late on posting this, but I had to share my lil watermelon with y'all.  Halloween evening we did a hay ride with Blake's family. This tradition was started many years ago. On Halloween, they do a hay ride for the kids (since out here the houses aren't close together, so it's easier to ride on a hay ride like this - and WAY more fun!) and then at Christmas, they do a hay ride and go caroling. Last year, Stella was just still too little, so I've been looking forward to this hay ride for a while! We had a blast and Stella raked in lots of candy...which all went to Blake. I'm not much of a candy-eater and I certainly would never let Stella eat all of that! I must say - I thought she was pretty adorable as a little watermelon!

{this was the weekend prior to Halloween - we went to a friend's birthday party and Stella actually wore her hat!}

{Cutest little rodeo clown and watermelon - Stella couldn't really understand why Cutter didn't want to play with her, ha!}
