A Bit Preoccupied Right Now

Text Messaging
Well, we were gonna see some great shots of Haley sweet talking the new spring calves, but she appears to be a bit preoccupied right now.

Canadian Geese
So, while Haley is busy texting, let’s take a peek at these gorgeous geese. Okay, I am just a Southern girl, so maybe I have missed something here. Are those Canadian Geese?

Are they lost? Or, do they instinctively prefer life in the South too? 🙂

Yup, Haley is still preoccupied but we get this great shot of her knee in her favorite old jeans. Can anyone tell me why we pay so much for jeans that the kids are just gonna rip up?

Haley sweet talking the horses.
We had to make a quick stop to visit the horses Haley met last week because she PROMISED she would be back to visit.

As soon as we pulled up they came running in from the field as if the recognized her. She had to take time to sweet talk each and every one of them before she was ready to move on.

So, how did they manage to capture her undivided attention?

The cell phone seems to be out of her thoughts as hunger sets in. Yup, if ya want to get a Southern girl’s attention, just mention barbeque and she will drop most anything.

Except maybe her cell phone. Lord have mercy, hasn’t that battery gone dead yet? How does she do that so fast? It takes me 20 minutes to find the letters to text message 3 words!

Still texting
Wouldn’t it just be easier to TALK on the cell? Should I be worried when the text messages start making her grin like this?

Okay kid! Close the dang phone, put it down, and let me see you smile. This will only take 5 seconds. I promise!


All that text messaging on a warm Spring day leads to a quick change in hairstyles. How can such a messy ponytail look so dang cute?

Does she still seem preoccupied?

107 text messages later, we had an incredible day! 🙂

    They’re “Canada Geese”, and until I moved to the Chicago area, I thought they were wonderful. Here they’re so prolific and so many remain here year-round that they are considered a big, messy nuisance.

    Also notice that Haley is no longer upset with Moma’s picture takin’. And that’s got to be one of the sweetest noses I’ve seen in a long time (smile).

    Good old fashioned BBQ will get a Southern girl’s attention. It takes a bit more than that to capture her heart thought. 😉

    Im really like the face on this picture…

    She look like a model 🙂

    If she do the hair bit more to updo, she will be a nice haircare model.
    Anyway, she look VERY beautiful 🙂

    Thank you for the comment Sara, but she will not be doing any professional modeling as she is very focused on her schooling and just enjoying being a kid.
