Cowpoke’s New-Old Horse, Smokey, Rainy Days, and Wet Boots

We haven't seen rain in FOREVER around here so the nice shower we had the other day was absolute heaven.  We let Truett play in the rain puddles all evening, fully clothed and all, including his Mickey Mouse ears he got from Disney World.  Those are the little moments I enjoy most. Remember Sparkplug?  Well, we still have him and Truett … [Read more...]

Sparkplug and Truett

P1020297

It's been a while since I showed you photos of Truett with Sparkplug. Remember the last time?  He's grown soooo much!!  Now he uses a bridle to stop, turn, and even spin Sparkplug. It really is the cutest thing and I just love to watch his facial expressions when he's riding. He's so proud and he loves to see you watching him. Anyways, I'm gonna … [Read more...]

Bareback Ridin’ and Gun Practice

Truett has grown so much and is exactly like Tyler, 100% cowboy.  Today, he took advantage of the pretty weather by practicing shooting his BB gun.  He can shoot too, never once missing the beer can. Obviously he enjoyed the weather today....clearly thinking it was a warm day. He also felt like  tryin' a little bareback riding.  He … [Read more...]

Cowpoke Underpants, The Horse Whisperer

cowpoke

Oh Truett...he reminds me so much of oldest brother that it's like I'm watching Tyler grow up all over again.  Truett loves horses, loves the outdoors and loves to ride.  Sometimes he just pulls his little chair onto the front porch and sits and watches the horses outside.  It's the sweetest thing ever. When the horses come close to the … [Read more...]

A Cowpoke and His Horse

P1010352

A while back at a rodeo, a super nice fella that we've known for awhile now, gave Truett a miniature horse. Horses in general aren't cheap and for even these little boogers they can still be thousands of dollars. For Mr. Butler to give little man Sparkplug, well, it meant a lot to us and to Truett. From the day Truett's Uncle Andy sent us a … [Read more...]

Terror of Tiny Town

It's hard to believe that it took 10 years for us to be blessed with this handsome lil' fella but it did and now he's a three year old terror.  Can someone tell me who the heck made up the terrible two's because they were wrong. It's the terrible three's.  Three--where they can do everything by themselves, start talking back, understand that 'no' … [Read more...]

Dandy’s Western Wear One Man Rodeo Show

Temp 569

I've always gotten the cutest little comments about my boys when they were growing up. I guess there's just something about seeing a little fella in Wranglers, boots, and a cowboy hat. Anyways, we headed out to the Dandy's to buy Toby some Cinch Jeans that are SUPER cheap ($20 in fact because he buys them in s HUGE bulk), when the cowpoke spotted … [Read more...]

Just Like Dad

I don't go very often when the guys are working so closely with the cows because I have terrible allergies when I get around them.  I know huh..married to a cowboy and allergic to cows and horse hair. geez. Anyways, little man loves to be with dad and becomes quite the helper during the works.  I think he needs some leggin's though don't you?  … [Read more...]

Little Man Packin’ his Saddle

The last time I used this vintage look, I got people telling me how hot my 15yr old son (14 at the time) was....ew.  Anyways, I thought it would make for a cute photo using the vintage style on my little man who was struggling to keep a hold of that saddle.  He kept saying, " I do it, I do it".  LOVE HIM! … [Read more...]
