self portrait

Claire drew this and taped it to the wall (using like my whole roll of tape:) all by herself. She said it's her standing in the sunset. How cute is that? I was quite impressed!

my performer

Claire randomly belts this out all day.

Thanks to the fact that she has two older sisters that love

Taylor Swift...

daddy's helper

The plan is to put a little garden here. We'll see if it happens.

just ask duane

Kate was crying and Duane says to Diana "If you just rub her tummy and say goochi- goochi- goo she'll be happy." :-)

Me, Duane, Claire, Ella, and Annaka went to story time & the mall.

A blurry picture of me and my awesomest find today. The blue scarf. That does not match my shirt. It's even awesomer in real life!

I'm sure you are all thrilled to be keeping up on my extremely exciting life.

Our Memorial Day

At the lake. Ella checking the place out...

Cambree tubing.

Claire was so excited to go boating . I took her on the tube with me. She jabbered the whole time. She says "This is the bomb mom! The water smells disgusting, but it's cute." Ha Ha..she's quite the kid..there's a reason we call her 'Goof ' !

Wade & Susie boating.....

Poor Ella couldn't even move in her life jacket!

The boys did some fishing.....

guess what i just posted

Amazing, huh? Because I never post pics. of Ella. Toys!
She can now sit up. No pillows!

Sorry. She sat there with her big blue eyes looking up at me while I was on the computer, and I just couldn't help but share her cuteness with you.

There you go, Amanda. Now you can see the outfit.

Ella 6 months

I made this blanket today. Diana helped me. I didn't even know how to thread my sewing machine.(yea, sad:) Nothing fancy, just flannel & cotton. I loved the print though. You can't see it the greatest in here, but the outfit you sent looks adorable on Ella, Amanda. Thanks again!
