Happy New Year.

For New Year's we went to my mom's house. She lives in a little town called Munday, Texas. There's not a whole lot of things to do there. You wouldn't know it from all the pictures we took.

We went to Knox City, which is about 10 miles West of Munday:

Memories! From the corners of my mind...! My grandma lives here and I basically grew up going to Knox City and doing country bumpkin stuff.

We went to this store in Knox City (it's called Pepper's, if you ever want to go there):

Where you can buy stuff like this:

We also rode a Ryno. It's like a souped up golf cart. And camo!

We went all over the cotton fields behind my mom's house. It was so fun, especially going over bumps.
Jose told me to take a bunch of pictures of him on it (this isn't even all of them):

How many pictures did he take of me, you ask? Well, I'll tell you.
The flatness:

These are cotton modules:

See our tracks?

Amber rode it too:

And we saw some pigs:

Since we didn't go for Christmas, we opened Christmas presents:

Amber in the jungle:

On New Year's Eve, we played an eternal game of dominoes and ate grapes (a Spanish tradition). Jose said "boobie storm" (ask me about it). There are no pictures from that momentous occasion.

On the 2nd of January, 2007, my mom was sworn in as Treasurer of Benjamin County. Congratulations Mom! In the afternoon, we went to Witchita Falls. On the way, there is a camel ranch. That day, three of them were out by the road. So we walked up to the fence and, lo and behold, one of them decided to come closer and check us out. Unfortunately, we forgot the camera so we didn't get to take any pictures (I got this picture off of Flickr). The camel that came up to see us was white. It let us pet its nose, but it tried to bite me twice, too. It was so cool!

On our last night there, we ate ice cream at Dairy Queen:

I can see that he is really my cousin because nobody write this kind of stupid things... "coming soon" (it's so sad).
