Fun in the sand...

My cousin Denise watched the girls yesterday so I could help my sister-in-law with the twins. This is what I came home to...
So Funny!!

Adam and Kyle...

Some recent pics of the twins.
Kyle...
Adam...
I am working on other pix from their newborn session. I will post them when I get them finished!

Have you ever wondered??

The last two months B has been on a Dr. Seuss kick. After reading several of his books I found myself wondering, "What did Dr. Seuss look like and what was he "on" when he wrote these books ?" Well, I had a few minutes today to Google him and this is the picture that I found....
Not at all like I had imagined. He actually looks normal and intelligent!!

the girls...

Some recent pictures of the girls...mostly of melaney. We did this spur-of-the-moment, and I am so glad that I did. I really captured her blue eyes in these pics.



























the "brad look"...
















another "brad look"....









The best picture I could get of B and Mel...










Same facial expressions...











It was so hard to get both of them to look at the camera at the same time! I think mel is giving me the "what for" in this pic...:0)


























Brad was in the fields that evening so after we took the pictures we had a picnic...














Gotta love Lunchables!! I don't think I have had one since I was in grade school!!

Have a safe and fun Memorial Day!!!!!!!!!

One of those days...

Have you ever had one of those days where you just need to go back to bed and start over??? Today was that day for me!! I was an hour late getting lunch to the guys in the field today!! It is so hard to get two kids ready to go plus pack lunch in the car! This afternoon I locked my keys in the car....WITH THE GIRLS IN IT!!! Thank goodness for living in a small town....the towing guys was here in no time to unlock it. I was trying to talk B through unbuckling her carseat, but she couldn't do it! Now I am paying bills and I just voided my 6th check!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to take a shower and go to bed and pray that tomorrow is a better day!!! Good night everyone!!

Garden work...

I am so behind at editing and posting pix because every chance I get, I am outside. We have had several rainy days around here, but I was finally able to finish planting my garden (except for sweet corn...that is brad's job) on Tuesday. I finished just in time, as it rained all day Wednesday. Brittney is enjoying the garden this year!!





Radishes, potatoes, and broccoli...


I planted 75 tomatoes this year...same as last year. 69 Better Boys...3 Sweet Millions...and 3 Delicious. I am not sure what the delicious tomatoes are. The company i order my seed from just sent them to me free. I put buckets and tile around the tomatoes to protect them from the wind and birds while they are little. Last year we didn't put the tile around them right away and it stormed that night. It shredded the leaves. I was sick to my stomach because I had started them by seed. Luckily, our neighbor is a tomato farmer and he said if there is a stem they will come out of it. He also gave us some fungicide to spray on them. They did come out of it!!





And because of this little girl, I decided to do an impromptu photo session...I will post those pix as soon as I can!!!






Introducing...

The twins!!!! My brother and sister-in-law had their babies on May 12, 2009.

Oh, and by the way...sorry for the lack of posting lately. I am so far behind at sharing pix. It has been crazy around here. When you see my next post, I think you will understand why!!

It's beginning to look like a jungle around here...

Our yard has become invaded by these... :0(
We had our lawn mower serviced this winter when the dealership was running its winter special. We mowed with it one time and it didn't run right. So the second time the yard needed to be mowed, I couldn't get it started. Brad called the dealership and they were understanding and said they would pick it up and would not charge us a pick up or delivery fee. How thoughtful of them!! So, we borrowed my parent's mower. But with all the rain we have had lately the yard has grown so fast. When it was dry enough to mow, we didn't have a mower to use...so the yard just kept growing. B decided she would mow it the other night...
Don't you love her matching outfit? She took a 3 1/2 hour nap this day and had an accident in her sleep. I wanted to her to wear another pair of jeans, but she insisted she wear her Minnie Mouse pajama pants. You cannot reason with her when she first wakes up from her nap!!

I know what you are all thinking...Why don't you spray those dandelions?? Well, we like for our yard to look nice, but we don't really see the need for that added expense. We would just rather deal with the dandelions and spend the money elsewhere!! We got the lawnmower back yesterday, but there is rain in the forecast until next Thursday, I believe. So, if you drive past our house and see our "jungle" of a yard...please don't judge us!!

Have a great weekend!!
