Pifer Life --- with LOTS of Pictures!!!

Countdown With The Pifers

Only
11 days until Halloween!!!

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Family Updates

Zach- is doing great, his knee is wonderful--he has started to work out at home and is looking into which gym would benefit him better as far as getting his knee/leg back into tip-top shape. He is leaning towards the 'YMCA', it has a pool and his physical therapist told him (back on his last day there) that pool exercise would really benefit him in the beginning.

Me- I am hanging in there--issues at work have not disappeared--I can only keep on praying that hopefully soon things will indeed get better. I have had my moments this past week of 'sadness'. I personally think I am just overwhelmed with so much right now--the fact my heart longs for a child but I feel we can't do anything about it at this moment is hard, it's hard letting go and leaving everything to God; I know he has our best interest in mind! Then there's the fact that work isn't going great...I've had this same stress headache for about 2 weeks now; thankfully my sweet honey rubs my shoulders almost every night--it really helps! I really don't know what I would do without him; he truly is my rock!!!

Big events over the weekend…

(Y'all wanted pictures and I hope I've fulfilled y'alls picture craving, haha!!!)

Friday--Zach and I went and ran some errands and then came home to relax and do a 'whole lot of nothing' haha!!!


Saturday morning was the MS walk, it went great.


Lorri is my co-worker (she is the one holding up the green bandanna) she found out about 2 years ago that she had MS, it hit her extremely hard in the beginning; she is in my department and I've seen first hand how MS can effect your life--she is def. a strong women and starts each day with a positive outlook on life. I am honored to walk for her! Our team was called 'Accounting for Hope' (We are in the accounting dept, and everyday is a day you 'count on hope' to get you through it!). We had a lot of fun; Zach and I ran some of the 5K, which was nice :)


Saturday night we went to the Fair and Rodeo--it was finals night at the rodeo; here recently I've really gotten into watching the rodeo--we went 3 times this past week, so I was eager to see who would walk away with the 'big win'. Half way through the rodeo I was traumatized--Please excuse my lack of knowledge in this description; but you know the men who pick up the riders when there 8 seconds is done? There are 2 men who stand by on there horses waiting to help the riders off of there horse/bulls...well the man and his horse was just 'standing' there waiting for the next rider to come out of the chutes; the horse collapsed--and appeared to be having a seizure. It's legs were twitching and it was the saddest thing I've seen, all sorts of cowboys and the vet rushed out; they sedated the horse so they could move it. Then this tractor came out and pulled the horse out of the arena; they later came on and said it had an aneurysm and sadly passed away. That put a huge damper on my night, I had tears in my eyes and just prayed that beautiful horse didn't suffer.

After the rodeo, we went out to watch Tracey Lawrence sing and OH MY he sounded amazing. The Heard's met us out there, it was great getting to see and hang out with them for a little while--it was freezing, so most of the night was spent huddling up next to each other trying to steal each others body heat--ha!. I also saw my sweet friend Rosemary from a distance in the rodeo, I sure wanted to see her cute little belly (she is about 13 weeks pregnant with her first child after beating infertility!!! If you get a chance please hop over to her blog and give her a huge congrats!).

These pics are some from every night at the fair...

My 'cowgirl' gear... :)


My honey and I and our self portrait pictures... (we take these things seriously, haha!!)

We have to take the most 'self portrait' pictures out of everyone in the world, haha!
Me and Ashley!!!


Sunday we slept in since we didn't get home till late, then we cleaned the whole house--I rearranged some things and moved some of my decorations around; feels like a whole new house, haha! After the house was spotless Zach took me out to dinner, we ran to Lowes to get a couple things then came home and crashed...

Our weekend was pretty good (minus the horse fiasco---poor thing!!!). I hope you enjoyed our slide show of self portraits :) and have a great week!!!!

Poor Horsey :(.

I'm glad you had a GREAT weekend! I love the self portraits. You're turn out great!! I always get an eyeball or an eyebrow and nothing else. HA.

Stephanie said...

I can't stand to watch the horses get hurt on tv so I can't imagine what it was like seeing it in person. So sorry you had to see that!

Glad you got your car back...I know that makes things much easier on you.

Veronica said...

That was pretty sad what happened to that poor horse. That would have upset me for sure!

You continue to be in my prayers and I hope that things will improve at work. As much as you have to be there...it really stinks when things aren't well there. Hang in there!

Lauren Kelly said...

The rodeo sounds like a blast despite the horse.... man, how sad is that!!!!!!!! Loved all the pics :)

KJ said...

Hey sweet girl! I just want to give you a BIG hug- I so understand how the waiting and allowing the growth of your family completely in the Lord's hands can be tough. I'm right there with you. I'm PRAYING for you. By the way you look beautiful- love the pics of you and Zach. You guys are way better at self portraits than us!

Rosie said...

Man! Zach is Gangsta in that MS picture! lol. And I loved ya'lls self portraits too. Such a pretty couple. I wish I could get D to take pics like that w/out making faces.
I'm still praying that things start to look up. You def. deserve it!
And I'm so glad I got to see you in 108 w/your bright orange shirt! And even better, I'll get to see you again soon face to face! Yay!
Love ya!

Those guys are called 'pick up men' for obvious reasons. LOL.. I am sorry that you had to witness the horse incident. When I was younger, I used to HATE watching the calf roping and steer wrestling. They'd make me cry! I felt so bad for the animals! Cute pictures though.. Glad you had a good time. Keep the faith. Things will come through in their own time.. I know it's hard to hear that...

Ashley said...
