Spring Has Sprung...




I apologize to all my readers that I have not posted more. We've had alot going on in our family and that along with taking a break to get my school ducks in a row have afforded little time for blogging. We'll be on a year round schedule , so I figured I'd start back May the 1st. That's when Jody is scheduled to go back to school, seemed like a logical jumping off point. Well, last week the weather was glorious. We all stayed outside most of the week. Saturday it was so nice, then Sunday, it snowed. This weather is freaking me out. I was so looking forward to the ceremonial burning of the knee high socks and the purchase of the first new flip-flops of the season. Glad I didn't burn my socks last week...
Here's a quick rundown with pictures of the going ons since last I posted. Better be prepared to sit a bit...
Jody , for our 6 year anniversary (May 30th)bought me a six string banjo. I have wanted one for a very long time because, though I love the sound of a banjo, my mind cannot learn another instrument. Going from the guitar to the mandolin back and forth makes my brain short circuit. Here's a picture of the little beauty which sounds exactly like a banjo, but can be played like a guitar.
On Monday of last week, we had my nephew Tanner spend a couple days with us. I love that kid. He makes me laugh. Jack really struggled with sharing however. They bickered back and forth like old ladies the whole time. But they had fun. And it was a good learning experience for Jack. Here's a pic of the crew I snapped...
Lets see, what else...Chloe is a full fledged crawler and is having to struggle with the concept of "no". Lillie actually likes to wash dishes...
Literally throwing herself into it...

Lillie likes to sew as well. I might just have a domestic diva on my hand.

I have decided that Jack's future will not be in medicine or pro wrestling (thankfully), but in corn eating, to which he has perfected a technique. They have hot dog eating competitions that ESPN actually covers. These people are serious...I wonder if there might be a future corn eating champion staring right at me at the dinner table...
Look at the poise, the stance, the technique...it's awe inspiring (not to mention a little messy)
Coming down the home stretch...
It's so good to be the champion...
Makes a Momma so proud...
