THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE-THEY HAD FLASHLIGHTS AND THE LIGHTS WERE TURNED LOW! (looked better in person!!!!)
On Sunday April 22nd Dickie was in the Audrey Owens Memorial Ranch Rodeo in Mixon, Texas. The proceeds from the rodeo go to the Audry Owens Memorial Agricultural Scholarship Fund. This year they were able to award five scholarships to students. Now let me get down to happenings that day! Dickie was real excited about getting to participate this year in the rodeo, in years past they have always scheduled on the weekend he is working. His team mates were Shannon West, Mike Morrow, Charles Lee Ashby. They did well in each event and worked good together, had some tough luck in the sorting. The last event Wild Cow Milking-this are "wet" cows! And of course my camera battery went dead and I have no pics!! Well anyway, Shannon roped the cow and off Dickie goes to the head and right before he grabbed her head, she head butted him in the right side. They finished the event and got a time, I went to check on him and he was hurting from the hit. Well, we left and came home and feed, ate, etc. When he went to lay down in bed, he was in allot of pain! So long story short, we spent Sunday evening in the emergency room! After it was all over he has 1 broken rib and several dislocated!!! I was very worried it was something major, he has such a high tolerance for pain. My prayers were answered! And oh by the way, it was my birthday!!! He feels really bad about spending my birthday night in the ER, but you know what I had a great day with my family/friends at church and at the rodeo. What more can you ask for??

Happy 25th Birthday "Peskie!!!" The Old Man (aka "Peskie") turned 25 years old today! He is Savannah's horse and her best buddy. To say the least she is horse crazy!! But she comes by it honest as I am too! He used to be Dickie's old roping horse and he retired him a few years ago and gave him to her. Savannah has been using him for her ranch rodeos where she competes in barrels, penning and our church play days. They get along so well and he takes good care of her. She has been riding him her whole life. He is beginning to slow down some and show his age, but I believe he still has a lot of years to go. As my husband says, they (the horses) are treated like royalty around here! He is a extraordinary horse and we have been blessed to have him for her. He is one of a kind. Thank you God for him and allowing him to be a part of our lives. "Peskie" to many more birthdays!
We love you bunches!

Jeremiah Charles Jordan
Born at 3:43am on Palm Sunday, April 1, 2007
21 1/2" long
The name “Jeremiah” means “whom Jehovah appoints.”
My sister called Sunday morning before we left for church with the news. They were at the hospital and had a healthy, beautiful baby boy. That made my day, what joy God gives us with children. And of course I was a Aunt again for the 6th time!!!!! They now have there own baseball team! They have 4 boys and 2 girls. They are (oldest to youngest): Nehemiah, Mordecai, Hadassah, Deborah, Barnabas and now Jeremiah. I do wish they did live closer, so we could visit and raise our children together. They live in Duluth, GA. They are great Christian parents and I am honored to call them my sister and brother in law. Anyway, just wanted to brag on the newest addition to the family!
