My Husband

Reasons why I wouldn't trade my husband for anyone else....ever!!!!!

  • He loves both boys equally

  • He kisses my hand while we are driving or walking

  • He cooks dinner and makes the best fried egg sandwiches for breakfast!

  • He never has a problem with my being squeemish about cleaning ducks/fish/chickens

  • He cares if I am sleeping well or not

  • He gets down on the floor and plays with Cameron

  • He listens

  • He is an awesome kisser!

  • He unloads the dishwasher...and tries to notice if stuff needs done around the house

  • He gives hugs

  • He still makes me melt when he looks at me!

Thursday 13 - 13 things that annoy me

Thanks for the idea Gayle!

  1. That I am the only that can see the clutter/mess...
  2. That I run around with my head cut off cleaning stuff, picking things up and putting them where they really go, wiping counters, doing laundry, washing dishes, feeding dogs/kids/chickens while the rest of the family sits watching TV or doing whatever they are doing on the computer
  3. That baseball/hockey take up so much of our lives
  4. That it wont quit raining enough for my lawn to dry out for me to mow it--and if it does my lawn mower is still in the shop anyway
  5. That no matter how much overtime I work and how much I pay on my credit card we cant seem to get ahead
  6. That it has been so cold at night/mornings we are going to have to turn on the boiler soon and fall further behind
  7. That this years coach hasn't told us where we are going for sure and when for hockey so we can buy tickets before we have to take a second loan on the house in order to pay for them
  8. That the mandatory exercises we have to do for work are so painful for my back and knees...can't we do something else to show we are fit for duty????
  9. It will be winter soon and the dogs will have to come back into the house.
  10. That I am afraid we won't have enough wood cut this year
  11. That I need my haircut and can't seem to get an appointment anywhere
  12. That I am out of chicken food and will need more since we haven't butchered the chickens yet
  13. That the whole house needs to be repainted and we don't have the time or money for it

a hairstylist in the making????

After Camerons bath he decided that he would comb everyones hair for them.....Ty found this extremely funny and quipped "comb Leo's hair???? what hair?!"

Tyler was not a satisfied customer and demanded his money back!

Freaky Friday!

Cam was playing with this GI Joe in his jeep outside. For some reason only known to Cam it was important to completely fill the jeep with Joe in it with dirt! Once this was done he remarked that Joe needed to wash his clothes. They were removed and taken inside...for some unknown reason Joe was carefully placed in the wheel barrow and has been there ever since!

Orion and the ducks!

Orion saw me watching the Mamma ducks and their babies and promptly decide in order to make his Mom truly happy he must get her one! He tried and tried...totally buying into the "broken wing" act that the Mom did while the babies got safely away! It was hilarious to watch!

Sunday at Chena Lakes

We had a picnic lunch at Chena Lakes. It was in the mid to high eighties and everyone enjoyed themselves immensly! There was football throwing, frisbee, sandcastles, slides and swimming! Not to mention a huge amount of food! Here is Cam getting ready for lunch...
Ty throwing the football with D.
Nice catch D!
The beginnings of a castle...
Supposedly going to throw the ball across the lake...real mission....GIRLS!

still building...
needs water....

hmmm....heres a good spot...there are girls nearby to watch!
lots of water!

bringing in the heavy equipment!
Ty and D back....onto some sand tennis!
D uses too many muscles and shatters the racket with his mighty hit...Tyler snickers!
Ty helping Cam enter the water to ask if he can play with the whale...

they said no....oh well, we will have to get some floating toys I guess
What good looking boys!
D. and Ty play frisbee....AKA "make the other guy swim for the Frisbee"!!!

building castles is hard work
"you think castles is hard???? Try scouting girls and trying to look good all day! Thats hard!!!" D. still trying to impress the girls by looking intelligent! This is his representation of "The Thinker"....the chip in hand kind of ruins it though!
