Happy New Year!

A lot has happened in 2011...

I moved to Nebraska in March where I interned with the Heartland Cattle Company Crew! I had a blast during my 3 month stay and would go back in a heartbeat!

I committed to grad school at Mississippi State in May.

I graduated from Kansas State University in May with a degree in Animal Science.

We lost my Uncle Maynard in May. I will always remember him rooting for me at the county fair livestock shows and supporting me in all my activities!

In July we lost my Papaw. Things will never be the same without him...I will never forget standing in the Wichita airport with him at 6AM and him pulling his pendulum out of his pocket and telling me he had to see if the plane was safe. If it wasn't, he wasn't getting on the plane! The plane was safe. Thankfully.

I moved to Mississippi in August and have been there ever since! I am learning to like chicken and adjusting to being beef deprived. I miss the supply of beef from my parents freezer. Think I could sneak some into my airplane luggage?

I am excited to see what 2012 has to never know what road life will take you down. Hope every one has a happy and blessed New Year!
Upon my arrival in Kansas for Christmas, it was snowing! We had a white Christmas...I was just a little bit excited.

I'm praying for a very blessed 2012 for you. I'm hoping for more smiles than tears this year, but whatever God has planned for us, we will face together. Love you much, Mom
