The Infamous 1988 Hat

If you know Ben, you know he loves a good hat. You also know he has this 1988 beanie he cannot live without. It's not really a hat. He got it from his cousin Nicole's Christmas bear I do believe (Nicole if you read this, please verify....). Anyways, he has worn this puppy forever. This picture was taken in 2005 around the time we got engaged. He wears that dang thing everywhere, even to bed....ugh!

So I was under the "impression" that book was closed forever when he "thought" he lost his hat snowmobiling a couple of months ago. I was so thrilled that I even blogged about it, big stuff people!

Then we went over to his parents house for Easter. We walk in the door and say our hellos. Then Jeff tells Ben to come look at something in the bathroom. Well, it was late and I wasn't paying attention. THEN, LO AND BEHOLD, OUT STRUTS BEN WEARING THAT DARN HAT!

Only one thought swept through my mind, that hideous thing still lives! WHAT GIVES!

There is only one bright and shining hope in all of this. Ben is amazing at misplacing stuff, so I am opting it will be lost again in the future....fingers crossed. He says he is making sure to take extra care of his baby this time...whatever.

I couldn't pull all the pictures I have of Ben and this hat off my computer because I simply have A LIFE! I guess the good thing about Ben and hats is he looks DARN GOOD IN 'EM! Life could be oh so much worse I suppose:D

A rare thing happened to us, my parents came and stayed for TWO nights. Yeah, that one has not happened, EVER! Don't get me wrong, they do love us. They are just busy. We were thrilled to have them see what we are doing here in Pokey. THANKS MA AND PA! Charly loved every moment! Grandma Bennett gave her some cute clothes, treatsies, and a fun book. Dad took us out to dinner and we were very thankful for that rare occasion!

I unfortunately didn't take a lot of pictures when they came. I was in my usual routine of slackin'! I did have these two pictures of Charly and my dad. I don't have any of my ma and her lately. I must say I just love my dad. I was a major daddies girl growing up, thus why I am kosher with Charly being one...

Things that make your day

The Tippetts Fam really doesn't have much going on these days. The weather is getting better. A dirt bike ride would really make my day right now. I don't think a day has gone by that neither Ben or I say we need to go dirt bikin it. Ben needs a way difficult ride in which I am not good enough to go, which I am totally OK with because I am PRO LIFE. I am lusting after some open hills with good climbs and not too many rocks. They can be killers if not negotiated properly.
I have posted a lot of pictures of things that make my day. Mostly Charly right now. I hope you enjoy them as well as my new background. Ben is gonna flip at how "GIRLY" it is. Oh how I love pestering him:D
This is the jewlery my Aunt Carrie makes. The pic does not do it justice. When I say she makes the most amazing jewlery, I mean it.

One morning I woke up and found the Gremlin had torn the binding off one of my piano books. She reached over her crib and had an early morning snack...

This is Tif and her Dad. I think he is hilarious. One of those guys that is clever and funny beyond words.

We are just having a good time in Kemmerer. Rusty and Roudy, yes that is there names, are off to the left.

What a goofy kid! Tif is a great babysitter, and Charly just loves her to death.

We went and flew a kite last month. It was pretty fun, and cheap...ah yes, we love cheap!

I got lucky with a good lookin man who puts up with my frumpiness!

I hope she likes dirt bikes as much as we do. A girly girl will be challenging for me, but I am up for it...I guess. She just better like dirt bikes!

When you say, "arms up," she puts them up.

Ignore me, just look at thos eyes!


Bath time is a little more challenging as she will not sit still! I would discontinue them, but she loves them and I hate putting her to bed all grubby. It just isn't right.

This one is good. She threw up within seconds of me takin the picture, and is examining her work.

My baby loves to share. Always putting stuff in my mouth.

She looks like she got caught diggin in the cookie jar. Her Grandpa Tippetts bought her these little toys a while back. She loves the turtle. She throws a major melt down whenever I take it away. It is pretty funny.

I love her hair in the wind. What a beauty.

If this doesn't make your day, you are too far gone my friend!

I love her eyes. So intense and BIG!

If the wind would have been strong enough that day, she would have blown away with the kite!

This is near where we live currently. Ben took it. I like the shot, looks good. This one craps me up because she looks just so different. Oh how I love pictures! Hope all of these brought you up to speed on our little one!
