What a year 2012 has been for the Poe’s!!! We have been blessed beyond belief! Last year we were about to start showing pigs at this time, well boy howdy have we done just that. Price is a big time pig show-er!! He really enjoyed showing his pigs last year, but is just so grown up in the show ring this year. He has already shown three of his pigs at the Shattuck Jackpot last weekend. This year we have four gilts; Jessie, Grass, Angel, and Cocoa.
Other than pigs, Price stayed busy this year with going to Miss Becky’s daycare and playing t-ball with his friends this summer. After refusing to leave the dugout at the first practice he became quite the little player. Of course every hit was a home run, but he did great stopping the ball and throwing it home. Price also got to attend EVERY home football game at OU this year. He loves the ponies and the drum major of the band. The highlight of the year for Price was becoming a BIG BROTHER!!!
Perry Lund Poe joined the family on June 8, 2012 at 12:43pm weighing in at 8 pounds .8 ounces. He has been the perfect addition and is the happiest boy. It is nice with our busy lives to just slow down and listen to Perry laugh at Price. They love each other very much! Perry is a growing boy starting solid foods and is on the verge of crawling…watch out world!!
Daresa loves her life as mom, wife, and teacher. She stays busy at school with her active FCCLA chapter. She has a state officer this year which has added a few more overnight trips to her schedule, but she is really enjoying it. She was event chair again this year for the Woods/Alfalfa County Relay For Life which fell just two weeks after Perry’s arrival, but the event was a huge success. She likes to hang with her boys, do pinterst projects, and have friends and family over.
Allan continues to enjoy his job at Northwest Technology Center. He stays busy with his growing cattle herd. The goat herd has really grown this year. With another buck on the place, breeding season is in full swing!! We might be to the point of officially saying we live on a goat farm! J He enjoys buying animals for kids in the area and attending stock shows as well. Price is a huge help when sorting goats and feeding cows. Allan loves his boys and that Price can go with more all the time.
We hope that you and your family are doing well. We are looking forward to spending time with friends and family this holiday season. We hope that you and yours have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed New Year.
