Divas in training

Here are a few pictures of Abby and her cousin Kaylee. They are about 7 months apart in age, although you can't tell it from where I'm sitting!!

You say this will make our skin soft??

Already fighting over the cell phone!!

I can't believe you just said that!!

What are you lookin' at??

Jump Around

These are some pictures of Braden and his buddy Shawn. They are really having a good time on the trampoline, as you can see. They jumped forever it seemed like. They didn't get tired, but I had to go in and take a nap from just watching them! [No, not really!]

This is how you do it.

They are getting some air on those jumps!!

Evidently jumping is really funny.

Crash landing.

And they all fall down!!

Here comes Peter Cottontail...

Ok, so maybe it isn't Peter. But I'm pretty sure they are related!! These are pictures of the kids when they got their Easter baskets [or this year they were more buckets!] This looks familiar. Braden got Reeses pieces for Christmas too. Just like Christmas, he had them ate pretty quickly!!

Logan can't decide what to play with first!

Abby and her "baby bucket"

She got ONE sucker in her bucket. This is her first one ever!! She did pretty good with it.

Easter Morning

You will have to forgive me. There are just more pictures of Abby right now. I'm not saying I'm right by taking more of her, but I do. She is just new to me still, a novelty, if you will. She is doing so many cute and new things. And the boys, well, are boys. They don't do that much cute stuff anymore. If they do, I usually miss it with the camera because it's a one time deal with those two. I love my boys, and if I can catch a snapshot of them I do, but for now you are just gonna see more of the Abster.

Getting ready for church. [AKA. Abby in her slip]

Now we are all dressed [except for the hairbow]

Closeup of the Abster

Wait! What's this?? LOGAN!! He wasn't too excited about letting me take his pic, but he let me anyway [he is good like that]

I know what you are wondering...[**Doesn't she have THREE kids??**] Oh, yes! I certainly do. Let me let you in on a little secret with Braden though. You have to get Braden dressed RIGHT before you leave the house. He doesn't stand for all the hubbledy bubbledy that comes with articles of clothes. Oh no!! This boy likes it down to the skivvies, and he will not have it any other way!! And let me tell you, he can rip some clothes off in a hurry. I don't know how many times I have gotten him dressed and came back 10 seconds later, just to have him sitting in front of the tv with nothing but the bare necessities on!! I have gotten wise to him though. [finally] That's why he gets dressed the very last.

Easter Egg Hunt

Here are some pictures of the egg hunt we had on Good Friday. The weather was really nice and the kiddies seemed to have a great time!!
I Found one!!!

Shawn checkin out his eggs.

Kaylee figuring out what to do.

Logan isn't really all that into it.

Braden had a "helper" [LOL]

Even little Abby is in on the action!

Too many eggs...can't take it!!

Now, there's a story here...

Braden decided that he was going to carefully place his bucket on the trampoline. He left it there and went to hunt eggs. Each time he found an egg he would run all the way back to his bucket, placed on the trampoline, and place it there. Then he would go hunt for another one. We tried to get him to do it differently, but in Braden's world, that just made more sense!!

Friday night, March 7th it snowed. It actually snowed enough that we were able to take the boys outside. I laid Abby down for a nap and me and the 3 boys went out to play!! Daddy pulling Braden on my old sled. :)

Logan got on board too.

Logan looking awful excited!!

They are getting the hang of the sled!!

Braden running down the hill.

This was the first time that either of the boys have been outside to play in the snow. It hasn't snowed enough to bother before, except when Braden was too little to enjoy it. They didn't actually play with the snow, they just kinda played like they normally would have, except for the sled. The sled was mine and my brother's when we were little. I have been waiting a long time for my kids to use it!! We all four had a good time!!

It's the strangest thing. You see these pictures here??
Well they mysteriously appeared on my camera.

I don't remember taking them.

Yet here they are.

They weren't there the last time I looked at my camera.

I just can't imagine how they got on here.

I guess it's just one of those unsolved mysteries!!

And the award goes to....

Tonight I drew the name for my big giveaway!! Instead of writing out everyones name, I used corresponding numbers which was much easier to do. [And I figured it out all by myself!!!]

The number that was drawn, by my fabulous husband, was number seven. If you count it out, you will see the winner is....

Alice Wills Gold!!!!

I want to thank everyone who came over and left me comments!! This has been fun and I will be doing another in the future!!

My first GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is a sticky post. Arrow down for more posts.

I had a great idea tonight when I was in the shower. Now, I don't do my best thinking in there, but I am kinda proud of this one!!

I got my hair cut today. Not just trimmed, chopped off!! I was growing it for locks of love, but I found out since I had highlights in my hair they couldn't use it. Oh well, I tried!!

Well, I started thinking about how I feel when I get my hair done. It makes me feel beautiful. The biggest thing that makes me feel beautiful is actually a little thing. I love to get my eyebrows waxed. It just makes my day. The other thing that makes me feel beautiful, is getting a pedicure. Not just any pedicure, but a spa pedicure!! There is a difference, trust me. If you ever try one, you won't go back. Anyways, back to the farm...

I am going to give away a nice little goodie basket full of Mary Kay products. I haven't decided exactly what I am going to put in it, but it will be nothing to scoff at!!

Now for the fun part!! Here is what I want you to do...

  1. Leave me a comment and tell me what makes you feel beautiful.

  2. Post a link on your blog about my giveaway.

That's it!!!

You have until next Friday, March 7th!!
