The Cowgirl

So, this weekend was the rodeo here in Neshoba County.  So we went last night.  I froze to death.  But as obsessed as Bailey has become with her hat, boots, belt, and horses, we could not wait to take her.  She had fun running around and dancing to the music before it started and she also had tons of fun with her fan club:  Mammaw, Pappaw, Mamie, Big Mammaw, Sid, and me.  When it started, Bailey was sitting in Nene's lap and she looked at me and said, "I not like it Mama" while she was shaking her head no.  (When we got home, I told her to get on her horse and ride.  She just looked at it and said, "I not like it Mama.")  I don't think she knew what to think at first of those horses and cows and men acting silly.  But she so enjoyed herself.  I tried to get some good pictures before we left the house but she was not having it.  In fact, she ran around the house saying "no pictures mama, no, no, no pictures mama" and slamming doors in my face.  Haha!  So, I just had to catch her when I could at the rodeo.  She shed the hat soon after we got there and the vest too.  I think because they keep falling off or down while she was trying to dance. 

Checking things out when we first got there, probably trying to figure out just what in the world that smell was!

I do not know why this picture is blurry and would not let me fix the red eye!  But I still thought it was cute!

Can that smile get any bigger?

Doin a little dance!

I think this is the cutest picture  EVER!!! Just hangin out!

Sweet Angel!

Well looky here!  I have pockets.  She LOVES pockets!!

This was when the horses first came in the arena in the very beginning.  This was right before she told me she didn't like it and was clinging tight to Nene!

Nene was still holding her in this picture, but I zoomed it in because she's ringing those hands.  That's how we know she's unsure of something or the situation.

Still watching!

Once again, I do not know why this picture turned out blurry, but I thought it was cute!

And towards the very end, she climbed up in Mamie's lap and just about went to sleep.  But, alas, she found her 2nd wind and was up and on the go again before we know it.

We didn't get home until about 11 and she didn't fall asleep until about midnight.  I didn't fall asleep until after 1, so we slept in this morning and then Sid had some work to do for some things set for tomorrow.  When he got home, we went out to Nene's to see his grandmother who is still in town.  We skipped nap since we slept so late and it's 20 til 8. I can't believe Bailey is still awake.  I guess I need to get her in the bed.  I hate it that I didn't get pictures of Bailey with anyone else but who you see pictured, but I like I said, I had to just catch her when I could.  I have more pictures to post of her one night last week in a different attire.  And I went to Mason basketball game yesterday morning and took pictures. I have TONS of those, but I'm not going to post them all, just a few.  Maybe one day before next weekend, I'll find some time.

Have a good week ya'll!!
