So Excited!

I'm so excited y'all!! I get to see my sister and niece Melanie on Thursday and they'll be here for a week!!! Woot Woot!! Yeah, I've been counting down the days. Kenzie is very excited to see Melanie too! They are only about 18 months apart in age so they have a lot of fun together. There's so much I want to show them and do when they come!! I really hope we have good weather when they are here. Its been a little rainy lately. So far, the forecast is calling for sunny and low to mid 70's for the first several days they will be here.

Another exciting thing I just heard yesterday is that my Grandma Nila (my Dad's mom) is flying in on Sunday to stay with my uncle (her son) for a few days, then staying with my aunt (her daughter) for a few days. So, we'll get to see her too this weekend. I'll try to take lots of pics so I can post them later.

Well, this past weekend, we moved to a different apartment at the same building we were in. I know, seems like we move a lot!! Hopefully now we will stay put for a while. I really hate the moving process!! Ugh!! Our other apartment was great, but it was just a little to small. We were quickly growing out of it. The living room was very small and it wasn't very open. Our new place still has 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms but the living room area is much bigger with a separate dining area. Our bedroom is much bigger too. The only downfall really is that there doesn't seem to be as much storage space, but we've made it work.

Hmmm, seems like there was something else I wanted to tell you too....?

I can't remember what it was, so until it hits me I just wanted to say what the heck is up with these gas prices lately??? Geez!! Houston usually has the some of the lower prices for gas and its still hitting like $3.34/ gallon! And that was a few days ago! Its probably gone up since I've last noticed. All this drama in the Middle East needs to chill out or something. Better yet, maybe we shouldn't depend so much on other countries for our needs.

And omg...Charlie Sheen! He has totally gone off the deep end! It's like not even funny anymore! This guy needs some serious intervention! But the sad part is people are too concerned with making money off of his antics than they are with trying to get the guy some help! It's ridiculous really!

Well, I can't think of what it was that I wanted to say, so I guess that's all the rambling I'll do for now, lol!

Have a great day folks!

It's Rodeo Time...

It's that time of year again for the Houston Rodeo and Livestock Show at Reliant Stadium. This is the biggest show of it's kind in the U.S. Danny got 4 tickets from his work yesterday and since we have never been, we decided to go last night. The performer of the evening was Trace Adkins. Outside the stadium they had a huge carnival and all kinds of food vendors.

We spent most of the time before the concert down at the carnival. When we finally went up to the stadium, the rodeo portion was almost done. We did get to see a few barrel races.

Here is a picture of the concert. My phone didn't take the greatest pics because of all the spotlights and stuff, plus we were pretty high up.

Another pic of the concert and all the lights. It was a pretty good show! The rodeo goes on for about 2 weeks and every night theres a different performer. Some of the others this year include Sugar Land, Lady Antebellum, Alan Jackson, Kid Rock, Janet Jackson, and Brad Paisley.

A picture of the ferris wheel (or "steering wheel" as Aydan calls it, lol!).

Kenzie being goofy. She was so excited when I picked her up from daycare and told her we were going to the rodeo.

They each rode a couple rides before we headed up to the concert. It wasn't nearly as busy and packed as I expected it to be but part of that was probably because it was a week night and people have school and work the next day. We didn't get home until almost 11pm. We were so tired. None of us wanted to get up this morning!
We had a good time though. I'm really glad we had the chance to go and experience it.
