Then and Now

:) We are a silly bunch. This first picture is Tater, Grace and my hubby. This was four years ago (I think). I was trying out my new camera my hubby purchased for my birthday.

The other day, my goofy bunch was playing on the bottom bunk in the boys' room. It made me think of the pic I took a while back. Well, I needed to get a new pic because we have a new addition to the bunch. It is very hard to get a 20 month old to sit still. LOL.

My baby bro's baby

I posted a while ago about the millions of people I know whom are pregnant. Well, there is one less. My sister-in-law delivered by c-section yesterday after a long labor. They tried to induce her early because she developed preeclampsia. Thank goodness mom and baby are doing very well now! I had been in contact with my bro most of the time. I decided I needed to be a good auntie and I rushed out the door when I got the last text. I was just finishing up making dinner and left all the dishes. LOL. My brother was very surprised to see that I had made it so quickly. Um Duh!! Here are a few photos.

My brother the proud papa.



Another of the new daddy!

Can you tell I'm proud?? He's not even mine!

He is so stinking cute. I love him. He is smaller than my kiddos. He is 7lbs 2 oz and 21 inches. My kids were 8lbs 12 oz, 8lbs 13 oz, and 9lbs 14 oz. LOL. I grow 'em big. He was so alert too. Boy, I thought I had baby fever before. LOL. Even my hubby said he was cute. Congrats guys! I love you guys and you did a fantastic job!! I can't wait to see him again.

*I didn't take any photos of mom because she wasn't feel well and I didn't want to bug her. I mean, she did just come out of surgery. I will definitely get more later though.

:) This is cute.

I was listening to the MJ Morning Show this morning on z107.7. MJ talked about a wedding video on YouTube that is becoming a big hit. I decided to check it out. I had already doomed it in my mind and decided it was going to stink. I just watched it. It made me smile. LOL. Go here and watch it yourself. Some of the bridal party was really into it! I bet their reception was a blast!

Hermann, well, Swiss

We took the boys to Swiss this weekend. I always say Hermann. It is near Hermann. Swiss is a tiny country town. My kind of place. My hubby's grandfather owns some land out there. They mainly used it for hunting during the fall. We went out to just get away. We also needed to check up on the place: clean, cut grass, etc. Grace didn't come because she is off running around the upper Midwest with my parents. They are doing a tour of "Little Houses": Little House on the Prairie, Little House in the Big Woods, etc. They took my older niece too. We didn't stay too long. There were a LOT of spiders, even my hubby was concerned with how many there were. Plus, Crash's allergies were really acting up. It was nice to get away for just a night. The boys rode the four wheeler and tried to beat the tar out of each other. :) They started early. I snapped a couple of photos.


Praying mantis hanging out. I think I ticked him off. I kept poking him with a stick.

Trees. I love nature.


Really huge spider.


Crash


Tater was tired of the photos.

I actually didn't scream and yell when I saw the humongo spiders. I tried to get close to get a pic. I was very proud of myself. I did, however, scream like a little girl when Crash decided to play with the bug in the house. He kept flicking it all over the floor and then he stomped on it. LOL. He then sat down and looked at the bottom of his sock because the bug disappeared. My hubby and Tater just laughed like crazy. I immediately washed Crash's hands. EWWWWW!

What the H?

Why am I showing you my jar of bay leaves? It's hard to tell from this photo, but there was something odd about this particular jar. When you purchase herbs or spices, there is usually a lid with holes on one side and a larger spot to pour greater amounts on the other side. Under the lid, is the safety seal. I noticed that even the jar of bay leaves gets the same lid. Hmmmmm........how many people stood their shaking the container until the bay leaves came out the tiny holes. It made me smile. :)

Sparklers and Blisters.

Grace, of course, was the victim. She had an ember burn her on Friday night. It only hurt for a minute or two. On Saturday, she wasn't so lucky. A piece fell onto her flip flop, under her foot, and burned her toe. :( I felt terrible for her. We were in the middle of nowhere without a first aid kit. I had her put some cool water on it. She is fine now though.
My hubby's brother invited us out to Lake Timberline to watch the fireworks. We decided to go. Why not?! They actually put on a pretty good show. Plus, we were so close. The fireworks were right above us. We were so close, Tater actually got scared. The kids had a fantastic time. The Paddle Club sold food and drinks. Boy, were they cheap. Hot dogs for a buck and cans of Bud Light for just over a buck. SWEET! Thanks J and C for inviting us out! We had a great time!!!

:) He's going to kill me.


Tater manning the fort.


Grace swinging away.


Crash staying cool.




Yep, finger print on the lense.

My eyes look so tired. Hey, he's actually smiling!


Our view was great.

Free water any one? Yes, please.
