Elmo Rocks!

I had a blast yesterday at the BOK Center in Tulsa rocking out with my grand babies at the Sesame Street Live Concert.  It was so cute to watch them dance and clap, especially our little Clara Jane.  She's only nine months old, but she was mesmerized by the characters and music jumped around and even clapped herself a few times! Yep...she's a rocker.  And Elmo is her favorite rock star.

Forrest's count down to graduation from high school continues, and he is going to be participating in Donkey Basketball tonight at a fundraiser for his class of 2012 Project Graduation.  They will be riding, pulling, pushing, coaxing, and dodging little cow-kickin' hoofs as they try to get the ball in the goal.  My nephew Jerrad played Donkey Basketball back in 2000, the year he graduated from Coweta.  He's actually a bonafide cowboy that won a reserve world championship in team penning when he was in high school.  Well...he fell off his donkey and completely dislocated his index finger to where it formed a 90 degree right angle jutting to the side (uggh.)  We called for Ricky Bryan in the stands to see if he could un-jam it (lots of the finger jamming stuff going on in the NFL and all), but he was even afraid to try.  One whirl wind trip to the emergency room and his finger was fortunately popped back into place and a splint was put on it.

Hold on to your little donkeys kids!! And tuck and roll if you get bucked off!
