Well today was Colt's first dip in the pool. I've had him at the pool before and put his feet in but today he got all the way in and what a big boy he was. As you can see in the pictures he didn't cry a bit, before I know it he'll be jumping off the diving board with Riley.

I know I told you that I wouldn't take a picture of myself in my bikini and I told Kim to just get Colt and Riley, but now you can see why it's time to shed poundage!!!

Here's a few pics I forgot to post and I would hate for you all to miss these. They are some of my favs.

Throwing myself back!!

Ok so I saw everyone else doing this so I had to try too!!

People say I look like my mom. What do you all think?

Ok so before I get started on my throw backs I wanted to give a shout out to my Aunt in law Karen!!! She's an awesome lady with a great laugh and beautiful eyes. I've felt so comfortable around her from the minute I met her, I think because she's a great mixture of my mother in law Debbie and my Aunt Debbie and you just can't get any better than that. Her and her husband Tommy are just awesome people. I wish we could spend more time with them, I really only get to see them at Thanksgiving and being from the Settle/Allen family that just doesn't cut it for me (we of course get together for EVERYTHING, and most people think that is strange. So I wanted you all to blog meet her and maybe we can get her started in the blog world.
Introducing.......Aunt Karen!!!

This is my other Aunt in law Pam and her husband Roger. Also really great people to call family.
This is Riley and Briley (not sure on that spelling) Karen's grandbaby.
and Addison (ever the poser) and Lexi, Karen's other granddaughter (Lexi that is).
Briley and her momma, Erika.

Now just a reminder to keep watching for the throw backs (especially the Wild Boar Posse, that includes you too half breed. I've been going through the high school pics and found some pretty good ones.) Blog you soon!!!

Ok so I'm going to try and follow in Mandy G.'s feet, it's time for me to start shedding the baby weight. I have started the Adkins diet and have been working out now for 3 days. I know, I know it's hard to believe I've kept it up for 3 days. I'm looking to lose 15 to 20 pounds, so like Mandy I'll try and keep you all updated on what is coming off or going back on. I would take a picture of myself in my bikini but I dont' want to make anyone sick and I left my camera at mom and dad's. So my next posts are going to be some funny throw backs...funny for everyone!!!! So keep checking you never know who will pop up on my blog!!!!

I know it' s been forever but here I go. This is going to be a major photo overload so just keep scrolling down. I'll try to explain the pics as we go. And the story begins......
These are just some cute pics from the long hospital stay and I had to share them. We start off with Casher and Ri playing, yes they are finally starting to play together. As a matter of fact Cash came and stayed with us one morning while he was in Woodward and Riley just cried and cried after he left, it was very sad.

Precious little Nater. He will always give you a smile.

A very smart Riley.

This one is after we got home. We were watching the Miss. Universe pagent and the evening gown portion was up, Riley got to watching and she decided that she wanted a pretty dress on. So all on her own she ran back to her room and got this shirt out that her Mimi had just got for her, which is just a tad too big, she put it on and began to model for us.

Here she is being Miss Oklahoma. If you can remember she fell on her way down the steps.

Here we are at Cashion's big #1!!
Riley playing with her Uncle Spence.

And the Birthday Boy himself!!!
Cashion Ray

Here's Riley jumping off the diving board. Can you believe this is the same girl that at the beginning of the summer through the biggest fit you have ever seen because she was afraid of the water.

After Cash's birthday Gregg and I decided to take Riley over to the lake for some big girl time. We took her took the travetines over in Sulphur one day well the water was soooo cold that I wouldn't even get in. Riley had nothing to do with swimming but I did get some pictures.

Fishing with Dad.

Aunt Stephanie and Addison came to visit and to meet Colt. Riley and Addison had a great time playing and Addison loved taking care of baby Colt.

Bath time!!!

After bath time.

Here the kids are at Boomer Media Day.
Gregg's not coaching varsity this year but he is coaching the Freshmen. It's so great. He still gets to be involved but he's home a heck of a lot more, it's wonderful.

And finally....this weekend and week we are in Duncan. Since I'm not having to go back and forth to the doctor anymore (I had some complications with my incision for those of you that didn't know) and I'll be headed back to work next week I decided we would come and relax at Mom and Dad's for a couple of days and of course we had to go to the choo choo and yee haws.

Waiting for the train to start up.

Riley waving to all the people as we ride by.

Nana and Ri on the "Yee Haws". Riley yelled that the entire time she was on the carousel..
She wanted to go again so I rode with her this time.
And here's some video of the ride.

And here is Riley and Pop Pop after the fun time at the park just pooped out.
So there you go, updated almost to the day. Hope all is well with everyone and I'll try to stay on top of the blog from now on. I'm still checking everyone's so keep the new pics and stories coming. Talk to you all soon. Lots of love!!!

Colt and the delivery from HELL!!!
Ok so most of you know already that Colt and I are both great. I know, I know I'm a little late on getting some pics up but you know any free minute I get I'm sleeping, doing laundry, cooking or cleaning up some cooking and most of the time trying to get some play time in with Riley. Everyone is sleeping at the moment so I thought I do some posting. Anyway back to the D-day.... I'll try to let you all know what happened. Everything was going great, I wasn't feeling a thing they had gotten Colt out, I even got a chance to see him, Gregg took some pictures and out Gregg and Colt went to recovery to wait on me. Not 3 minutes later I "crashed". I started to get a horrible headache and see spots and by the time I could tell them that I wasn't feeling right I couldn't breath. It was a horrible feeling, my lungs had begun to fill up with fluids and my blood pressure sky rocketed. Finally about 1 hour later they got me somewhat under control and brought me out to recovery and about 2 hours after that I was feeling good, then I got the news that they really didn't know what had happened but it certainly wasn't normal so they would be mediflighting me to OKC to the heart hospital for more test. All those test came back pretty normal they found one thing and I'll have to have it rechecked so that they can keep an eye on it. Anyway I'm doing and feeling great now and Colt is precious except for the fact he doesn't sleep well at night. Here are some pics and I'll try to keep updated a little better. Hope all is well with everyone!!!
Here's my little man just after he entered the world!!
Here's me just minutes before I thought I was leaving it!!!
But as you can see all was well!!! ONE HAPPY FAMILY!
Riley is sooo happy to be a big sister. She has been sooo great with Colt.
Colt and cousin Nate. We only thought Nate was little!!
Just a funny picture.
Getting ready to come home FINALLY!!!!
