Once again, it's been a long time since I updated my blog. I've just been tired so much lately that I haven't done much of anything...especially on here.

First of all, congratulations must go out to Luke's brother Matt & his girlfriend, Emily, who got engaged last week! We are so excited for them and to have a new sister-in-law! Congrats, congrats, congrats!!

Matt & Emily walking back from the Pumpkin Festival a couple weeks ago.

Also last week, Luke turned 28. All he wanted to do for his birthday was to go bowhunting and eat chili. Unfortunately, he had to travel for work all day and wasn't able to go hunting. I wasn't up for making dinner, so he had to settle for pizza...but I did get him an icecream cake! I think he had a good birthday anyways though!

Birthday lovins' from Kelly Jo

This past weekend we stayed home. Luke worked on the corral with help from his friends Kyle & AJ (which turned into a spontaneous "guys night" in the barn) since both of their wives were our of town. The corral is almost done! Kelly hurt her paw though. She sliced one of the pads on her left front foot and its still really sore. We've been wrapping it and trying to keep it clean but she is still limping pretty bad. Poor girl.

Today it rained so much and there was so much flooding that I got to leave work early (to make sure I could actually get home). Then I got a flat tire about 1 mile from our house. Luckily Luke & Steve were here and helped me put the "donut" on so I could get home & out of the rain. I guess we'll see if I make it to work tommorrow or not...

Mariah & Lyle's Wedding

On September 19th, my good friend and college roommate, Mariah got married to Lyle! It was a gorgeous setting and a gorgeous day...even though it was 95 degrees in Billings that day. I left for Billings a week early for all the pre-wedding festivities. It was so much fun to get to spend time with the girls and catch up. Here we are at the salon the morning of the wedding.

The wedding was outdoors at a garden:

Mariah was the prettiest bride I have ever seen!

The whole group! Well, Big Trev, Ken & Kassi were missing, but Joylynn and her husband were there.

I spent the week with the Kaczmareks and had a great time hanging out with them. Tucker turned 1 year old while I was there. He is such a cutie!

Congratulations Mariah & Lyle! I really enjoyed being part of your big day & I wish you two only the best!!

After Numerous Complaints...

I'm finally updating my blog! Since I started my new job I hardly have time for anything...let alone updating my blog, but I do apologize. We've been doing good, just really busy. Hope this makes up for it!
Here are some pictures from my August trip to visit my family in Montana.
Hiking to Birch Lake with Matty:

We saw lots and lots of goats once we got up the lake. They were really tame too and we got really close. The little baby goats were SO cute!

I got to spend several days riding at the ranch. My Grandpa has a new horse named Cricket that I got to try out for him. I really liked her! The cows were everywhere...but where they were supposed to be, so we had our work cut out for us.

We finally found some cows!

Matt & I also hiked to the falls by the ranch. It's always a gorgeous trip:

My good ole' Doc is still hanging in there. Age has been kind of hard on him this last year, but it was so good to see him and know that he is doing well.
