For Ashley!

I have been in Owasso the last couple of days. It was a multi-purpose visit. It is always great to get to see my kids and grandkids that live there as well as the rest of the fam. This was also a working vacation. My niece, Ashley, and her husband, J. J., are expecting their first child. Ashley is a little bitty thing and she has had low amniotic fluid, so she has been on bed rest for the past several weeks. Kain, that's my great nephew, is having an OSU nursery and they wanted a Pistol Pete painted on his wall. He could arrive anytime now, so we needed to get the painting done soon, just so Ashley would have one less thing on her mind. I'm so glad we did, too, because she got put in the hospital again and will stay until Kain arrives. She is 32 weeks now, so the baby may be small, but he should do well, it just would be nice if he could wait a couple of weeks to make his arrival. Please remember them in your prayers.Here is Ashley with her little baby bump. Isn't she a cute little mama?
Pete is going to stand right over the changing table. Yes, an OU fan like me can be persuaded to paint some OSU things (if someone I love asks :D) All of the kids thought he looked scary, so hopefully he won't scare Kain to pieces!
I just had to post a picture of my precious Ryder. He is so close to crawling! What a precious little man!

Oh my goodness! I now want an OSU room! Cory wouldn't go for it though! Pete looks absolutely fabulous! Ashley looks so tiny!

For the record, I like Cole Gregory, just hadn't mentioned it to Cory yet!
