YARD SALE

To all you Yard Sale freaks out there...... I am having, probably, the biggest Yard Sale I have ever had, this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. There is going to be around 12 or more families participating. There will be lots and lots of baby clothes, boys and girls. There will we tons of women's and men's clothes all sizes and name brands. I have a infant car seat with matching stroller. Mom has a white baby bed,baby swing and stroller. There will be lots of toys. We will have new hairbows and new purses, also.

You name it and I might just have it sittin' in my front yard this weekend for sale.

All I can say is pray that it don't rain because we will have too much stuff to be able to cover it up.

Busy Beautiful Day

Oh, what a beautiful Thursday!!! I hope you all are able to be outside some today and enjoy the nice warm sun.

I have enjoyed it...... woke up, planted flowers, Aubree mooned a car going by as she decided to pee in the front yard by the main highway while I was planting flowers, went and got more flowers and planted them, Aubree and Carter rode in Big Truck with Dad, Aubree and Carter played while I washed my car, Carter had a wreck on the bicycle and hit his head in between his eyes, Aubree walked in front of Carter swinging (bout got knocked out), I ate a bowl of cereal for lunch ( I know, real nutritious) I do good just to eat something,we rode the 4-wheeler and checked on the cows-4 times (they are all OK) by now Aubree is ready for a nap, she is down and now I have time to clean,wash clothes, get a shower and get ready for Alayna to get home and off to her T-ball game. WHEW!!! I love days like this, I feel like I have accomplished something today.

I love warm weather! It means we can stay outside all day! Wear 'em out and they will sleep so I can have some me time and my house is not a disaster.

TAKE TIME TODAY AND LOOK AROUND AND SEE HOW BLESSED WE ALL ARE!
GOD IS GOOD!! ALL THE TIME!!

Beach







Oh, how I miss the beach already!!

We just got back from Panama City Beach this evening and we had soo much fun. I must say we were in desperate need of a family vacation. (well, I know I was)

The weather was just perfect! About 80 degrees, not too hot, not too cold. But hot enough to get sunburned!! We all were pink the first day on the beach except me...... I was red ripe tomato red and still am. Ouch, talk about hurting. I was even stupid enough to want to get in the scalding hot hot tub with the fam with a sunburn. STUPID!

We skipped the beach the next day and went to Gulf World! It was so much fun. I am not sure who enjoyed it more, me or the kids.

Check out this video of Duke the Sea Lion. He got some moves!

And the dolphins were awesome!

Wouldn't it be great to have a job where you got to swim with dolphins all day!

We hung out at Pier Park one day and rode the carousel at least fifteen times. ( all day pass was a bad idea. lol) About round six I was about to fall off my horse! It just took one round for Dwayne to be drunk! LOL Ain't he such a manly man!

Other than the normal sisterly fussing and fighting the whole way there and the whole way back and mostly in between we had one of the best vacations we have had.

Next time I will take the advice of sister S and make everyone, including hubby, wear pull ups there and back in the car. I am telling you what, we stopped 6 or 7 times on the way home for somebody to pee or poop. That would be stopping once every hour!!!


Cool breeze, white sands, waves crashing on shore, kids laughing, husband quiet (well for a few seconds at a time), the hour on the beach by myself, spending time with my little family. PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!
THE LORD BLESSED US WITH A SAFE AND WONDERFUL VACATION AND I AM THANKFUL FOR THAT!

IT IS GOOD TO BE HOME BUT IT SURE WAS GOOD TO BE AT THE BEACH!

Rabbit HATER!



IT'S OFFICIAL...... AUBREE WILL BE A RABBIT HATER THE REST OF HER LIFE!!!
I STARTED IT, SO I GUESS I AM TO BLAME!!
LAST SUMMER BEFORE SHE TURNED TWO I KNEW I HAD TO TAKE THE PASSY OR PAPPY AWAY! SHE REALLY LOVED HER PAPPY AND I WAS REALLY GETTING TIRED OF THEM SO I KNEW MY DAY WOULD COME WHEN SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN AND I COULD BLAME IT ON SOMETHING BESIDES ME. HA HA.
WE WERE RIDING THE 4-WHEELER THROUGH SOME WEEDS AND SHE DROPPED IT AND THE LIGHT BULB WENT OFF......

I TOLD HER THAT IT WAS GONE, SHE DROPPED IN THE WEEDS AND I BET A BABY RABBIT GOT BECAUSE IT WAS A BABY AND IT NEEDED IT.
THAT NIGHT SHE GOT SO MAD BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T HAVE A PASSY AND AFTER CRYING AND BEGGING FOR IT FOR A VERY LONG TIME ( I STUCK TO MY STORY) I TOLD HER ONCE AGAIN, THAT BABY RABBIT GOT IT, IT'S GONE AND...... SHE JUMPED UP OUT OF BED AND SAID NO, NO BABY WABBIT MY PAPPY!!!!!!!
STILL TO THIS DAY SHE DESPISES RABBITS....... SEE PICTURE BELOW.






POOR THING, I THOUGHT SHE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN OVER HATING RABBITS BY NOW.


GUESS I WAS WRONG!


SHE DIDN'T HEAR BRO. LUKE SAY A WORD WHEN HE WAS SPEAKING BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING OVER HER SHOULDER SAYING...... WHERE'S THAT WABBIT. I HELD HER THE ENTIRE TIME. I WOULD TRY TO PUT HER DOWN AND SHE WOULD SAY NO..... THAT WABBIT GET ME.


ONE TIME SHE DIDN'T SEE THE BUNNY AND SHE ASKED, WHERE THAT RABBIT GO...... CHURCH??????


SHE WAS JUST WISHING IT WOULD LEAVE FOREVER !




ONE OUT OF TWO NOT CRYING IS PRETTY GOOD, I GUESS!
