Mid Summer 2014

Summer is here & we are loving it. :) Dale & Micah stay busy with lawn care everyday. I am still sewing for the country store as much as I can. Briana is my #1 babysitter for Reagan. Plus she has turned into a lover of all things tidy! She keeps the house all picked up & the other children can get a bit irritated when she puts things away that they aren't finished playing with yet. I am not complaining. It is super nice to have help with the work around the house.
 In July Sierra, Reagan & I flew to PA along with my sister Inez to spend a few days of quality time with my parents. It was a wonderful time, but I was oh so ready to come home with my family again!!!
 Sadly my little camera was on the fritz while I was gone so the only pics I took were with my phone.

My evening with these two lovely ladies was so much fun!

  Speaking of camera...
 A new camera has a way of bringing out the desire to take & share pictures. :) I am absolutely loving my new camera & Briana is the delighted owner of the old one. Believe me she documents every part of her day with pictures. :) Why that little thing doesn't proclaim lens error for her like it did for me I surely don't understand. But no regrets here on getting a new camera!

Why why why do I have trouble every year with petunias withering up & dying???
Some look nice.

And some look like this. :( I water faithfully, feed them bloom booster & still some do this!

My boys & Ashlyn love throwing ball. I didn't get any pics of Ashlyn tonight but here are Micah & Shane.

Sierra has officially entered the "she can keep any size shoes on her feet stage."

Give him a broom handle & he is a happy boy... Its a gun, no its a sword, its a????

Poor baby must have needed his nose wiped. This was right after she "shared" her gum with him! Micah fished it out of Reagan's mouth before he started gagging.

Just for fun...

A morning that starts off with remembering your baby was only up once during the night & then a dear friend delivers this to your door just because... Well that's bound to be a great day!

And because I know everyone wants to see who is in charge of security around here...
