Too Hot, but loving it.

This is what a week of 98 degree weather looks like.

Reece has such fair skin that I have to put sunscreen through his hair and he ends up with a fro. Avery is just like Shane and is tan after 5 minutes in the sun no matter how much sunscreen I use.

1154 Lill Studio

Here's the bag I designed! My sisters have been picking their bags out. Now our husbands need to order them! The interior liner is ADORABLE too.

The old shall be made new again...

This is furniture that my mom and Judy gave us when we were in the rental house. With a coat of paint and some new fabric, they now are looking quite awesome. I still have the finishing to do on the rocking chair. But I am very thankful to have been able to breathe new life into this stuff. Shane's new motto at work is ZERO TO LANDFILL so I am trying to do that too.

Me want yogurt!!

Oh that smile, that little button nose, and those eyes! How could I punish that? No, I just sat on the floor next to him and watched him finished.

This is what I found when I turned around after loading the dishwasher. That boy is quiet and sneaky!

Memorial Day Weekend

Avery Loves Wearing Sunglasses, Reece always has a smile
Daddy fixed the hole in "tuggy" and the water was really "big".

Church on Sunday, all cleaned up with matching outfits.

Is it possible to get them both smiling at the camera at the same time?

They were so glad that they got their Daddy for three whole days. It was a great weekend.

I'm feeling pretty blah today. Shane left for a business trip and that means I'm automatically a little more stressed. I hate that his leaving makes me feel a little insecure. I'm a little off balance, a little less confident, and a little bit crazy about having all the doors locked.
Do you ever get an opportunity and you get so psyched and maybe it's not quite what you thought? Or maybe the anticipation is greater than the actual "thing". I thought that I had a chance to be really creative and to share that with others and really it hasn't quite turned out to be what I thought. And the way it is going to be- isn't necessarily a bad thing, just a little bit of a let down to me only. I'm purposefully being cryptic by the way. I'm not sure who reads this and I don't want anyone to wonder about me. I guess I just feel a little bit useless as to what I am going to be doing.
I'm also in a foul mood because Reece came home today with a bite mark on his arm (no one in nursery said thing about it to me) and in three hours, no one changed his diaper. Normally I don't get ticked, but he's got his first nasty diaper rash and it makes me mad now that it is a little bit worse from no one changing him. Avery had two accidents in two hours and I am wondering if there was anyone paying attention to my children today.
Okay, I'm done whining. I'll go clean something and feel better.

Wordless Wednesday

Avery found Nini's shirt in our laundry! We were there a month ago. Not sure how the mysterious shirt evaded the washing machine for so long, it will be here for you when you come in two weeks Mom!
