Three little buddies...

It is even more wonderful than I imagined. These three little kids are such great buddies and are so cute. I love watching them with each other. The two big brothers are so eager to help and talk to their sis. If I need anything for the baby, they race to help. I feel so blessed!

So Eme "brought" the boys a new bed. They were so excited, "Yes mommy, we want a bunk bed. We are so excited!!"
Um, too. Now remind me...what are you going to do with your new bed???

Love at First Sight

Emersen Marie was born at 2:22 pm on Tuesday, June 9th and it was definitely love at first sight. She is so sweet and a perfect baby so far. The boys love her and always ask where "baby" is. I am feeling well as can be expected for 5 days after a c-section. So, I am just riding the baby euphoria wave and loving it.

One of the Happiest Moments of my Life...and no, I haven't had the Baby

The other day I was walking out in the yard, watering the garden when I looked down and saw the most beautiful sight in the world.  Most anyone who might read this post knows my first love, as far as food goes, is watermelon.  I planted watermelon with a warning from all local gardeners that I wasn't likely to have much luck.  Well, I might not have as much luck in getting babies to come out...but I am extremely proud and excited to announce that I am the proud momma of 4 baby watermelons.  I just can't wait until they are big enough to cut open and eat every delightful bite of goodness within.

It's all fun and games until...

someone knocks over two cups of Easter egg dye. This was possibly one of the funniest "traumatic" events that I have witnessed. We were at my parent's house for Easter along with my older bro and his fam and my younger bro. We were having a great time, dying eggs...a few dye drips here and there...but I had a feeling it was only a matter of time. When the cups went over, all of the adults jumped into action. We quickly ran out of paper towels so I decided to go grab more. When I got back to the scene I decided that 2 seconds to snap a commemorative shot would be well worth it. So, I am happy to have documented the drama...and with the help of comet and bleach products, all of the dye came out of my mom's grout (thank goodness!!).
We had such a great time and were relieved that the Easter bunny found us out in the sticks. Thanks for the good times Dad and Mom!!
