Check the different rates of progress on these deer's antler growth. I bet it doesn't look like much difference to you but it does to me.

Wynn Wright's grandson, Bryan, is taking his grandfather for a spin. It looks like Grandpa is mighty proud.
Here is a young buck in his "boxing" posture. All the while a racoon gobbles up feed.

Here they are Lindsay and Lex. Lex flew to Singapore to visit with Lindsay and Greg on his way home from Taiwan. I know Lindsay showed Lex a good time. She is the best tour guide. I only wish Kristi, Sandra, and I could have been there too.

Getting ready to go to the baby shower for Kristi and Lex's Baby GIRL was SO much fun for Grammy Sandra---she decided to do a pretty floral wreath in the colors of the baby's room. At the shower, Kristi thought that they might take the wreath to hang on her door at the hospital. And, it can go on the front door at home to announce her arrival or it can go on her room door or on her room wall---so many options!
Grammy Sandra also got creative with a simple 8-frame collage frame for 4 x 6 pictures---each frame has a coordinated ribbon or rick-rack trim in pinks, sage green and brown with little pink and white buttons to add that extra 'pink touch'! Hmmmm.....I imagine there will be lots of pictures can go in the frames when Baby Girl Poth comes!
Here is the darling musical mobile that Nanny Swierc sent to the shower with Sandra. Little pink and brown flowers plus a little lady bug will float above the crib for entertaining times!
This pretty photo album is for Lex to store some of the many pictures we know he will take of his baby girl! Imagine finding a chocolate, pink and sage green suede cover!! What luck! Sandra forgot to take a picture of the "camo" baby set she decorated: a one-sie with a cute pink bow at the neck; a bib and burp pad with pink rick-rack; a pair of little booties; and a baby bottle ALL in camo material decorated with touches of pink for our baby girl!
Here are "The Kilgore Girls": Cindy Fleharty (Kristi's older sister); Kristi (with Baby Girl Poth); Channing Kilgore (Kristi and Cindy's cousin) and Taylor Kilgore (also Kristi and Cindy's cousin) posing right before opening all the presents when the shower got underway!
Sandra attended a lovely baby shower held at Valarie Kilgore's house in Haslet on Sunday May 24, 2009. It was a great event with a ton of ladies attending and Baby Girl Poth (attending with her Mother!). Here is Kristi holding up the darling cake her very talented cousin Mylynka made for the "Ice Cream and Pickles" Baby Shower!
Look at all the goodies on the refreshment table! No one could say they left hungry!
The 'drink center' with lovely pale pinks and greens in balloons and all the rest!
What little cuties Kristi and Lex were when they were little! Who could have guessed they would find each other and now are bringing a baby into their lives soon?
Kristi and Taylor are checking out the cutest 'diaper cake' make of tiny diapers and all sorts of little baby items----a soft hair brush, pacifier, toothbrush, teething ring and so much more---so clever!
Ninety-nine years and still counting. When we talk about the ninety-nine years she says, "Oh, that's only one from a hundred, am I that old"?

I took Sandra out to the ranch to show her my water project and, while riding around, she spotted this shed antler. It turned out to be the shed of Bruto, our six and one half year old buck. It is his left side antler. I told her I had driven by it at least six times since Bruto lost it and never saw it. She reminded me that, when we were a [lot] younger, I used to call her Eagle Eye!
