Vegas! Here We Come!

Hopefully not eveything that happens in Vegas, won'ts stay in Vegas. We are hoping to bring a little money home with us when we go.

We weren't going to go to the NFR this year, but Shaun quilified to rope in the World Series Team Roping Championship down there, which is the last week of the NFR. I'm am just as excited to go watch Shaun rope as he is to actually rope. To win the roping, it pays out $90,000 a man. Even if he gets 20th place (which is the last place they pay out) he will win more than his money back. I'm so proud of Shaun, he has come a long way this year. This summer wasn't his best, ok he didnt' do good at all. Then Septembet hit and he was on a roll. Hopefully he will keep that roll going through December. He has a really good partner heeling for him, so I'm not too worried. I know they will do their best.

So, if you are going to be down in Vegas December 10-13, give us a call and we can get together or come out to the South Point Cassin/Hotel and watch Shaun rope. I could use some company!!

Where Were You?

Today is the 7th anniversary of 9/11. Do you remember where you were? I do. I had gotten up at my apt and was getting ready to go up to morning classes at USU. I was listening to the radio and it came on and reported about what had happend. I didn't know if it was a joke or what. I didn't have TV because I had the cable turned off because I was getting married next week and getting ready to move. So, I hurried up and got ready and when to school early and got on the computers to find out what exactly happened. That is when the 2nd plan hit the other tower.
I remember Shaun not wanting to go on our honeymoon because he didn't want to fly. I told him to bad we were going.

Shaun and I had a friend back there that was suppose to go to the Trade Towers that day. Well come to find out plans changed and for some reason they ended up going the day before. They were being watched over and protected thats for sure. But do you ever wonder why some people were "lucky" and for some reason didn't get to work on time that day, but others weren't so "lucky"; that just goes to show that there is a plan for us that we don't know about and anything can happen at any time.

If remember what you were doing that day when you found out, write it down.
have a great day and keep those families that weren't so lucky in your thoughts and prayers.
