A "lot" of 5 nursing bras, in my size for $30. ebay of course, yes, new. I thought, what the heck. It's $30. I got them yesterday. I am so excited! two actually have lace! I've washed them, and I'm wearing one tomorrow.... Finally. I can think about something else. Hmm. I wonder, If I was an astronaut out of the ship, working on the equipment and drifted away, how would I die? lack of oxygen? freeze? carbon monoxide poison....

A kitty. A lot less scary than a AHH BUG!
No animals were harmed during this adventure.

We had Boer goats. Spanish goats, meat goats, milk goats, red goats, black goats, old goats, new goats, this one has a little star, this one has a little car. MY! what a lot of goats there are! (sorry. couldn't help then either.) They've since moved to Arkansas. They prefer a warmer climate...
I was excited when these arrived though. My comment to the kids was: "Oh look, they are brown cows". Both Elle and Will replied: (in unison) "They're COLORED cattle". (excuse ME. brown is a COLOR).

I hear her shuffling the camera around, navigating the couch, bath towel placement...
And every time before she pushes for the shutter, I hear her say "Cheese"
These are the best 3 out of 58. Don't you just love digital??
This is one she wanted me to take of her. What a "Cheese" head.
This is the one she wanted to take of me. She would NOT take it until I did the total cheesy grin. We've NEVER told her to say cheese when taking her photo. SMILE, yes, but not cheese. Where do they get this stuff?
This is how she and her daddy fell asleep the other night. She was rubbing her foot on his goatee, and he was kissing it, and 'poof' both of them. Out like a light.

This is what was waiting for me when I got home from work today... I have to say, my husband does a FABULOUS job of making sure there is flowers, cards, dinner on special occasions. And today was no exception. You can't tell, but they smell good too!
As I sit here with Bea on my lap, and the baby jumping in my tummy, 14 years ago I would have never guessed this is what it would be like, what a pleasant surprise! I wonder what it will be like in another 14?
On a funny note, today I saw cocktail napkins that read: Love is blind. Marriage is an eye opener!

While the big kids practiced, Bea and I went to the bank, got water for the kids, coffees for the parents, and stopped at the farmers market. mmmm. Sweet corn, green beans, cantaloupe, beets, and yellow tomatoes....
Bea playing on the equipment during the game. She is "cheesing". This is right after she told me: "Mommy you no come up here." "It's dangerous". Ryan agreed. "...in your condition it probably is."
After the game we went and met Bea's new babysitter. She is very nice, she has a son that is just a few months older than Bea. And a baby due anytime. I think Bea is going to have lots of fun there.Saturday afternoon we had house work...outside work... and then to the neighbors for a bon-fire.
Sunday morning we were at church at 8 am to make the coffee and doughnuts... We stayed at church for lunch, and then attended a seminar given by Tim Shoemaker.
It was a great seminar on easy, fun ways to have family devotions with your kids.
By the time we got home, it was time for dinner, baths, and bed....
This coming weekend we are leaving the kids at home and having a REAL relaxing weekend at our favorite get-away...hopefully next week at this time I'll be void of this haggard look I'm wearing....

Callie moved these under one of our cars. Elle put them in the box to save them from me...
Bea thinks they are Fabulous. I just think she's cute holding them...
Somehow everything on this farm reproduces like rabbits, except for well, the rabbits...

A messy house...
