My class.....Video Production section

Make up & Wardrobe crew on scene 1 of filming
Bruising and lacerations look real

Realistic blood, I actually made the fake blood from a recipe..looks real, huh?

More 'fake' blood on the wall- so glad it turned out for the students filming

We used the park to film.....CSI agents on scene

Make believe predator, he couldn't believe we thought he fit the profile! Great kid/actor!

The students are doing a great job learning Video Production/ Editing. We actually set up the whole crew, director/producer; wardrobe; make-up; production crew; videographer; editor; music, so on and so on. We are having so much fun! Oh, all the students in the filming are fine and kicking!
This is where "I love my job"....

A lil rain won't slow down barrel racers!

A little rain won't stop true barrel racers! These pictures are from Sunday's barrel race, it was just sprinkling, while the day before......a heavy down poor with lightening was happening right before I ran. 35-40 feet from the indoor arena, they call my name, Bunny and I go towards the arena, she had her head ducked trying to miss the rain that was falling so hard on us. I knew there was no way around it. Getting to the alley, we go in to make our run. My shirt, hair, horse, pants, all were soaking wet, we made our run. I came out, we headed to the trailer, I unsaddled, throwing the saddle in the trailer, loading my girls and came home. What a great day! Got a call from the director, Bunny Lou and I won some $!

Had to visit the dentist

You know what stinks? Going to the dentist "A must" when your tooth breaks and is stuck in your gums by its roots! These are not my teeth in the picture, but hopefully they will be after all this expensive work is completed. After spending two hours in his office yesterday (God Bless them for working me in on a Monday), they put a temp in until my 'porcelain' tooth comes in! LOL I can't help but laugh, when you put the temp, which is a white plastic tooth up against my other teeth, I AM DESPERATE FOR A WHITENING TREATMENT.....My mouth is sore from the lidocaine and needle, he had to inject more lidoicane because the feeling started coming back before he finished grinding my tooth.

After all that was said and done, I am returning to have my porcelain tooth and get fitted for trays for whitening treatment. This is killing my Florida trip plans AND the fact that BB has 3 basketball camps in July! My best friend and I have discussed going to Branson for some days, she is bound and determined to get me away!

Went Barrel Racing TODAY!

OMGosh, I had so much fun, that I didn't want to come home! Bunny and I ran at the race today and it felt ssssooo good. I can't believe that I waited so long to hit a race. I am ready for next weekend!

Amongst all this excitement, I came home and started a headache from Hay-deees ( I think it is due to my blood pressure medicine), I got home and was starving so I fixed some pizza's and two bites into it, my tooth broke. I don't mean the filling fell out, I mean it "broke" and is still in my mouth! It is hanging from the root/skin what ever, all I know is my gum is killing me! I can't pull it out and I can't eat! It feels like I have something stuck under my gums, for example.........FOOD! Now I have to wait until Monday to call my dentist, hoping he can get me in soon!

What a day and I probably wouldn't change my day, except my tooth breaking, but I had so much fun at the race! So much I am in PAIN now!

Easter Egg Hunt'in in the house!

Had to give the Grands their bath so BB and Colby could hide eggs
One of the eggs 'hidden' well
OH, found another one mems
'look' here is another one

While the grands were here for the evening, we decided to hide eggs since the chance of rain is 90 percent Sunday. If you have not kept a 3 and 6 year old, I have found that I realize why I had kids when I was young. I am worn completely out when they go home. I can come home after a days work and ride horses, feed, go to Wal Mart and still have energy, but these precious ones, keep me going! LOL
With BB and Colby's help, I gave them a bath after supper while they stuffed and hid eggs. As you see, they were bouncing on my bed prior to the hunt!
