The "Twinfants" are home! Is that not cool? We're so excited. Now we can cuddle them whenever we want to! Yay!

Rach was telling me today that Mooky had a GREAT day! That's so neat! I'm so glad for him. I hope he has more like that. Send pics of Erinn's Grand!

Welp, I guess I'd better go call Katie and see if we can get her any time this year. Literally. Since next year isn't very far away.


LOVE TO ALL! -allie

I did Okay

My sweet friend Katelyn.

Me, Misty Cloud, and Katelyn Boone.

Me competing with Marty Elmore on the left and I think the guy on the right is named Riley.

I suppose I did okay. Yesterday was my fiddle competition in Glen Rose! It was a bunch of fun, but I was shakin' like a leaf in the wind when I got up there to play. My tunes were Allentown Polka, Kentucky Waltz, and Temperance Reel (my personal favorite). I messed up at the key change in the middle of Allentown, but recovered, so it turned out okay. Sadly, the judges caught it, duh, and it cost me a couple points, I'm sure. After all that practice, I only got 4th. Grr. Oh well. The girls that beat me were: 1st place, Lesley (Ward?), 2nd place, Maleika Nugent, (she beat me last year.) and Faith Nugent (Maleika's little sister). I think that if I hadn't messed up on that one part in Allentown, I could have gotten 3rd, not 4th. But that's okay.

Husband Brag

Recently Rowdy's current bosses and former bosses (in Nacogdoches) and probably others got together for a fishing trip. His current boss, Sean, has only been here a few months and he came home and told Rowdy that former boss, Jerry, got to telling "Rowdy stories." Rowdy's reaction, and later mine when he related it to me, was one of confusion. What on earth kind of stories are going around about Rowdy?!

Here's what Jerry said: There are two things you can always count on with Rowdy. One, he'll always have a bottle of ketchup in his truck. (Take some time to laugh!)

And two, if you need a job done, give it to Rowdy.

I am so proud of my husband!!!

Thank you, Allie!

Wow, Allie! I just got finished looking at your re-done website and I was touched to see that you credited Tana with the picture she took of you! That means a lot to me. Thank you!

Yay! I love the new look - go check it out. (I KNOW. I've told you to do that so many times, but really! check out the pictures page. I like that page the best.)

Love to all, Allie

PS - if you want to listen the music, it takes, like, 5 minutes to load. :-) Sorry.
