One toy: a million uses!

Remember when it was 100+ degrees outside and we would point the sprinkler onto the trampoline and jump?

The girls have found a new fun thing to do with the trampoline. They love how the leaves crunch and bounce with them.
And look up, there's many more leaves where those came from. I think at least three more months of fun!

Kiss from the King

A friend of mine talks about "kisses from the King"....just little no reason happies that seem to come at the perfect time.

I've had a rough couple of weeks. Phillip's been working a lot, I've not been feeling good, and Emily's not been sleeping good (which means Mommy gets no sleep either).

On Friday Phillip brought home a gift certificate to get a pedicure. Whoo Hoo, that was definitely an unexpected happy.

Then I got some 'good mail' from Hollee Ann on Saturday. Man, you'll never know how much that meant to me, Hollee Ann!

And wait, that's not all.....Yesterday after church there was a bag hanging on the mirror of my van. Inside was some yummy cookies and yummy yummy pumpkin air freshener thingy....and I LOVE me some pumpkin. The little note just said, "Thanks for your ministry."

Man, any one of those would be a sweet sweet kiss from the King, but instead I got a triple kiss!

God knew I needed a triple kiss cause today I'm taking care of a puker.... Her face is saying, "Momma, why are taking my picture when I'm fixing to puke?"
Oh, and I'm taking care of another jealous, feeling fine, non-puker!
Thank you Phillip, Hollee Ann, and my mystery person for encouraging me and loving on me. I think I'm going to make, I know I'm going to make it!

Yep, still humble.

Remember this post about Emily keeping me humble. Well, here's another one....

The scene: Yesterday morning laying in my bed cuddling with Emily.
Me: (sleeping)
Emily: Mommy, your sleep sinks.

Thank you Emily for pointing out all of my flaws including my whiskers, chubby back, big booty, and now morning breath! I love you anyway little booger!

So I'm finally admiting it.

My Wordless Wednesday posts are never wordless. Instead of pretending that they're wordless, I'm just going to start doing 'Wordful Wednesday' hosted by Seven Clown Circus (love the name of her blog!)

Since Becca's birthday party was two and a half weeks ago, I'd better blog about it before I forget what happened.

We had a Pancake Pajama Party on the Porch, and had a lot of fun.....I ate too much, but it was still fun!

Looking at the pictures though, it looks like it was an experiment in how many kids is too many...

How many kids is too many kids to open presents?

How many kids is too many kids on a trampoline?

How many kids is too many kids in a sandbox?

Oh yeah, and one totally random thing....whoever gave Becca these little recorder things...ummm yeah, thanks!

Soakin' It Up

I haven't posted any pictures from Becca's birthday party because...well, I need to get to that. But if there were a dictionary entry for "Soaking up attention", it would look like this! I love that face!

Hand on the Hip

Can't you just hear her telling him how he's not doing it right? Nooooo, she's not bossy!

Oh, and that's one of Heidi's boys again. And the boy Mara always says she's going to marry.

Guess who? Updated with answers!

Ginny at 5 Texans posted pictures of her three kids at the same age a couple of weeks ago. Her kids look amazingly alike.

So I dug through some old pictures and found pics of the Three Girl Circus at about three months old.

Can you tell who is who?
Yep, y'all are right. The first one is Emily, the second Mara, and the last one is Becca Sue. I forgot to mention that there were prizes. Everyone who answered correctly gets to spend an entire month with Emily Elizabeth at their house! WoooHooo! Ya'll figure her out and send her back to me...K?!

Breakin' up is hard to do....

...well, not really.

I'm talking about Bloglines. All of the broken feeds last week have driven me crazy.

I've finally switched to Google Reader. I don't like it as much but just because it's different. I like sameness!

The plus for Google Reader? It works! Yeah, can't say that about Bloglines.

This picture just cracks me up.
Look at that face...she has no idea that this book is going to rock her world!

Look out little strong-willed one, Dr. Dobson is already working on your little self, and Mommy is only on page 50!

Tag, you're it!

Mamarazzi tagged me for this really easy meme. You just have to go to your photo file, find the sixth folder, and post the sixth picture in that folder.

This is the adorable picture I found there. Well actually the sixth folder only had three pictures in it so this is the seventh picture in the seventh folder.

Look at their little faces. I can't believe that the cute little thing on the left there is the source of so much stubbornness now....well, ok she was stubborn then too!
Oh, and our bathtub has gotten significantly smaller in the two and a half years since this picture was taken!

Oh man, I almost forgot that I'm supposed to tag five other people. Let's about Heidi, Chelle, Ginny, Jes, and Vicki.

Oh, and that's Heidi's little guy in the picture with Becca. They're just a few weeks apart and best buddies.

Is there any other job on the planet where moving some kitchen chairs and throwing a blanket over the top can make you a hero for the rest of the day?

Nope, I didn't think so.

I love this job!

Well, most days I love this job.

If I forget about the fits, failures, and whining of yesterday then yes, I love this job.

Guess that's what life is about....Keeping your eyes forward and pressing on.

Two-year-old of mine,

The next time you decide to take your diaper off all by yourself and then potty all over the place. Ummm yeah, don't!

Two-story Slide

All. By. Herself.
Man, I need to start praying now about when she gets her driver's license....the little dare-devil!


She's gone and done it again....

...made me cry that is.

I'm talking about this post from Jenni at One Thing.

Man, she has a beautiful way of writing and often describes my heart to a 'T'!
