YM Walks

My baby is taking steps! He is nearly walking.
I caught a few steps on my camera while we were waiting for his sister to
finish her activity Wednesday at church. He is so very adorable!

Through the Eyes of a child

We all have a visual picture of ourselves.
I see myself as a pre-kid size and
keep trying to fit pre-kid clothes in my closet LOL.

So the other day the girls are designing Miis on our Wii
So we are making one for me. I'm
thinking long reddish hair, green eyes
dimples, rosy cheeks or freckles
My Mii is lookin' good....

Then I hear "NOoooooo Ma-om
You HAVE to put on GLASSES
and HAVE to PICK the BUN hair
Poof I'm a Old Lady!
There you have it the truth about how I look each day...
I need to stop putting my hair up in those buns
and start wearing my contacts more LOL!

Know when to hold 'em

Today I was rejoicing that my daughter is finally potty trained.
Then I noticed I was singing a song to her in my mind.
"... you gotta know when to hold it
Know when to walk away and
Know when to RUN!"

I started giggling, yep potty training is sorta a gamble.
And she sure does need to know when to RUN!

~~~~ for time & eternity

Some days we don't remember but others stick in our minds so clear and don't really fade.
The day this picture was taken was one of those days for me. I remember exactly how I felt.
Engagement Photos on the north Fort Collins Bridge over the Poudre river.

Reflecting on the last 9 years I am so glad L proposed to me.

oh........What a day....

Lets start with a nice bit
our chickens are laying eggs
here are some eggs to compare
a new little brown one a nice size white one
and then a huge double yolk on on the right
Then here are the scary stories

at first glance I didn't know why my kitchen was so warm
came home to find my water warmer a.k.a. teapot
had been left for 13 hours on the stove top with the burner on
the bottom glaze was melting and the inside of the pot was bubbled up and blackened
just really glad my house is still here

Here another scary thing
caught Juju about to step on this fellow
these are post mortem pictures ( L crushed his head)
yep its a rattle snake on the sidewalk in front of our house

This last set of pictures is just exactly why we were outside the morning of the rattle snake...

L found a really big moth
this guy was about the length of his palm
and hiw wings span was wider than his palm
don't know why he didn't fly away
maybe he was too big?
anyway.... we thought he was neat
What an exciting life

mother daughter chat

today for social studies M and I talked about Urban, and Rural communities
in her text book the urban community was Chicago

I told her I had been there
saw the Sears tower and had dinner with her dad in downtown.

Then I told her that in Chicago her dad had proposed.

It also is our 9th anniversary today.
I asked her, "aren't you glad dad asked to marry me?"

Then she says to me
"now you have 4 kids and its nine years later,
what a success!"

I loved it! She's right we are a success.

sweet baptism
