Summer Fun

Yes, it's true, summer really stopped by here for a few days. Of course it's gone now but lets not try to think about that. It came and I have pictures to prove it.
Josie got attitude...wait she already had that

I got to sit back and let the outdoors entertain the kids
1 Baby
2 Babies
3 Babies

Haylee had a photo shoot....but she got a little tired

Payton learned to mow the lawn

Landon started training his new colt
This is the first day and he almost made it on

Happy Mothers Day to me....

I'm going to attempt to make a quilt for my bed and I'm so excited. Just think of the hours of entertainment this little stack of material is going to give me, now if I can just find the hours. Today Josie asked if we could paint her fingernails and I said "If we have time." She looked at me like I was stupid and said "We do have time mom, lots, look at all our clocks, see the time." We see things a little differently. Oh, and I still don't have a pattern for the quilt so if anyone has some ideas please share!!!

My Little Vampire

I'm speechless and a little scared...

Bear Hunting Weekend #1

Landon drew out a bear tag this year and he is sooooo excited! So am I, doesn't bear meat sound delicious? Do you think it would be good for food storage. Unfortunately weekend #1 was unsuccessful, but Landon did get in some good exercise. I'll keep you posted with future hunts. If you look really closely you can see Hayden and Kaleb following all the hounds.
This was the long hike. They started at the bottom of the canyon and walked all the way up to this ridge.
Landon liked this tree and so do I

Random Thoughts

*I think I'm a real mom now, I cut off my hair. Yes, I've cut it 3 x's in 3 months. I usually average once a year.

*I work Mondays and Tuesdays. The weather has been beautiful on Mondays and Tuesdays for 3 weeks and sucks the rest of the week...go figure.

*I took charge and bought myself a mothers day gift this year....and it's early.

*Some of my favorite quotes from Josie this week:
"This is not a rocking chair...this is a bed." (while sitting on my bed sunday morning)
"Relationships" and a sigh
"Thanks young lady" in response to me helping her get in her car seat.
"Jesus is nice. Jesus died. Now he lives in the church, but I never see Him."

*I took my kids an a exhausting bike ride was about 1/4 mile.

*I'm having issues with my braces. I thought I was almost done and I woke up this morning to a a diastema between my two front teeth. (Diastema: a big fat space)(ok it's small but come on)

*Cinco de Mayo has come and gone with not so much as even an arriba. Last year we partied hard, today I didn't even eat a taco or wear my cinco de mayo shirt.

I am in love with my Snuggle Peach Blossom fabric softner but I think they quit making it. I can't find it anywhere!!!!

I got released from Young Womens. It's sad, but now I don't have to feel guilty about skipping it on Wednesday night to watch the Jazz game.
