Preschool Graduation

Skylee's graduation was this week and I have to say that I cannot believe that I have a preschooler. Time has flown by way to fast. It seems just like yesterday that we were learning to crawl, then walk and talking.
Sky has turned into such an amazing little girl. She is so sweet and kind hearted and always thinks of other people first. I just love her!
So while in preschool her friends were Kenna, Brody, Carly, Cohen and of course Cole. Everytime I would pick her up from school I would have to hear about Cole and how he liked Lightning Mcqueen and blocks. And Cole would always saved a place of her at the table next to him. I just loved it!!
Anyways Congrats to my graduate!! You Rock!

WOW its been a long long time!!

Woah so I finally realized that I have been way, way, way behind on my blogging. Sorry everyone...
So here is the one of many reasons. Mine computers hard drive went A-WALL and I couldn't download any pictures.. That is enough to make anyone crazy. So anyway I had to by a new computer.
Okay, okay enough complaining let me tell you what we have been up too!!!
Lets see in March Josh, Skylee, Grandma Lisa and Grandma Jod all loaded up into the truck and went for a 8 hour drive to Colorado to pick up the Coolest Pony Ever!!. As soon as Skylee saw her she fell in love. It was kinda of funny when we saw Miss Dandy we knew immediately that she was ours. Kinda weird but her and Skylee share the same birthday. Coincidence???
In April it was Miss Skylee bug BIG 4 Birthday!! We had a party at grandma and grandpa Brown's complete with the Lightning Mcqueen Birthday cake!! Lil miss spoiled walked away with a new rope saddle, pop up barrels and toys, toys and more toys!!
In May Josh, me, Kelli, Chad, Stepahanie, and Heath decided to do the Red Rock Relay in Moab. Going into this 70 mile relay I didnt know what to think of it. But I would have to say that it was probably one of the funnest times I have had in a long time. 11 hours in the truck with 5 other people was a hell of a good time. I would seriuosly do that again in a heartbeat with the same group of people!
So anyway that was a super,super short recap of the last couple of months.

Okay its been a Loooong Time!

So I didn't realize that my last post was in October! Wow time flies when your having fun or chasing a 3 1/2 year old around!

I will try my best to get you update with the Cowdell Clan!
The first week of December Skylee had her Suzie Snowflake dance recital! She was full of it! Giggling, singing she loved being on stage. So we have her back in dance and she keeps asking when she goes on stage again!
Oh then Christmas all she wanted was Mater and Lightning McQueen monster truck, dolphin pillow pet and a dinosaur, notice not ONE girl thing. I was going to throw in a Barbie under the tree but then I thought this her and no way am I going to change it!
Josh spoiled me again for Christmas with a beautiful china hutch, entertainment center and Gorgeous set of Nettle Stirrups! (he told me he couldn't believe that he would ever spend that much on stirrups!). So needless to say he doesnt use my saddle to heel on!

Oh we sold Lightning Mcqueen the goat. She has gone to a weird goat farmer in Carbon County and they are going to use her to breed. Adios Lightning!! But now I have to get a pony.

Josh has been roping as much as he can in the winter so he can be ready for spring. Skylee has been riding Ms. Flicka with mom.

I'm getting ready to run more half marathons this year and my crazy running friend is insisting that I run a full marathon in June. (thanks Kelli). So here I go! Oh Josh is going to run his first half marathon in April! woohooo.

And finally Skylee has moved on from the toddler bed to the big girl bed. So I have been taking down all the baby stuff and changing to little girl stuff. Its kinda sad to see all the stuff go.

So there is the low down on the Cowdell Clan!! Adios Amigos!!

Dance recital (FYI dont let Josh run the camera)
