My Little Cowboys!

Yesterday was Kansas Day.  I don't remember when I was growing up (a LONG time ago) ever celebrating Idaho Day or Colorado Day or any other state day in places I've lived, but having kids in school here in Kansas, a pretty big deal is made every January 29 in honor of Kansas Day.  The kids learn all kinds of interesting things about the state and about famous people from here.  In preschool, Taylor's school had a fun western dress up day in honor of this great state and its history.  They have a little feast of things like hot dogs, crackers and such and do some fun activities.

I don't consider myself any kind of a country western kind of gal, but THIS is one dang cute cowboy!

Ya'll come back now, ya hear?!

Hey, Grandma, Sam wanted to tell you that he is such a big boy he doesn't have bah-bahs anymore! (finally)  He got to go pick out two new sippy cups today.

He's been such a trooper about it and though he still wants one, is doing really well.  Even when we put him to bed and naps, he just cries for a very short time.  We're so happy about this.  And (knock on wood!) he's been sleeping all night until we actually wake him up at 8 o'clock  to eat breakfast with everyone before the boys go to school. 

Yeah for Sammie!
