Where have we been??????

Has May has been a crazy month for you all as it has been for us.  
We have not blogged in a while and that is due to our very EXTENDED schedules!!!
Now that schools out we may have a little more time on our hands
We have had some milestone events going on in our lives and here are just a few of the  things that have happened.........

 Easter Sunday...

Maddie, my oldest, got Baptized! 
I am such a proud mama

The Easter Bunny brought Mary Richard her OWN baby doll that talks. 
 She has a new best friend

 Hunting Easter Eggs

My 2 oldest girls were playing T-ball and kept me on the go.


Mr. Biggs has been planting corn
More on that to come...

Maelee has a new boyfriend
I know she is young (4 yrs old) but you can't tell her nothing.
I foresee her being the death of me!

My girls started driving Green tractors
This is a joke.. we only buy red
We just borrowed this one and Mary Richard really enjoyed the ride 

Look in the wagon at the little 1 yr old holding on for dear life
and the crazy Nanny running behind to make sure Mary Richard doesn't fall out!

The Rhinestone Cowboy turned 21!
I know my little Brother isn't little anymore.  We surprised him with a party. 
 I think he really enjoyed himself...

Does he look surprised??

Mary Richard went swimming for the first time
She really enjoyed the big bath tub

Maelee and her sweets.

All this swimming wore her out

Maddie graduated from Kindergarten
Again, I am so proud of her

Here are our 2 graduates.
  1 from college and 1 from kindergarten

As you can see, we have been VERY busy this month and it's not over yet!

I (Ashley) graduated from University of Arkansas at Little Rock on Saturday, May 21!  I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Health Science.  

I was able to share this special day with my friends and family.

We all gathered at a restaurant in Little Rock called Cajun's.

My mom and dad celebrated their 28th anniversary on the day of my graduation.  It was such a great weekend!  :)

Dia and Mrs. Brenda were so sweet and gave me a graduation party at Brenda's house.  All of my friends were there to celebrate and eat delicious food prepared by Selene Schumacher, "In a Bind Cooking."

Our wonderful Cook!
Mrs. Brenda, Dia, and I took the night off from cooking....
How nice it was!

Watermelon Salsa

These are a few of my favorite things....

Pork Tenderloin  with Watermelon Salsa

Southwest Egg rolls


 Shrimp Quesadillas

One of my best friends from Arkansas, Megan, came to visit Texas for a couple of days.  I took her to all of Dalhart's boutiques and to the farm.  She was also able to meet my wonderful Texas friends!

We all went to Maddie and Maelee's guitar recital. They did so good!  They both sang a song and played three songs!  Look out Judd's....the Dean's are taking over country music!

May was busy but so much fun!  God has truly blessed us with so many abilities and loving friends and family.  I hope June is a little slower.....we shall see?!?!

One more GREAT thing happened in May.  Keep looking at the blog the next few days to see what happened!
