So I asked Sam what his fondest memory is and here is his reply, "Being married to you" I said aww but that's not a memory because we are still married.

He then followed up with winning Houston.

For those of you that don't know my husband, show lambs are his favorite past time.  Everything from hunting down the great ones, to feeding and exercising them just right and of course stockshows.  He loves it!

The 2002 Houston Livestock Show is also the very first memory I have of Sam.  We met in passing in the horse barn where all the market animal auctions take place.   It was brief and as far as 17 and 18 year olds go it was by no means a formal introduction.  Sam of course doesn't remember this but you know us women folk we remember EVERYTHING.

Funny how ten years later we are married and Sam is chomping at the bit to have a 9 year old so he can continue his passion for showing lambs.  I keep telling him "What if our kids don't want to show" he always says they will, "it will be bred into them"

So here is to hoping for Sam's sake that someday he will eventually have a 9 year old child of his own to teach all the things his dad taught him about the sheep barn.

I showed steers and hogs and thought the sheep people smelled funny, but after being around Sam and seeing his passion and dedication to the lamb industry I have learned to love it.  Even if it does smell funny, I guess it isn't as bad as pig crap.

Happy Memories!
