Primary Activity Day Carnival

This was my first offical primary activity day to plan so I was a little stessed and nervous that it would all go well, but it was a big hit! We had hot dogs, all sorts of booths, a magician, a bounce house and a cake walk at the end. It was so rewarding seeing all of the kids have so much fun!


Life's good!

We taught Ethan how to clap this week! He's so proud of himself when he claps, he looks around to make sure everyone saw him. I love this new 'monkey see, monkey do' stage!Okay so I love giving Ethan foods that he can hold himself and snack on, but heaven sakes, these cookies are so messy! I have to hold him over the sink to wash him off I loved this picture of him with the smash of cookie in his hand!

I know, I know, kind of a slinky picture. Okay, so I like to watch Tyra on her talkshow and I always pause it if I have to get up and do something so I can come back where I left off, well I just happened to pause it while she was doing her 'so what' speech and she was just trying to emphasize her point. Tyra, love ya, but FYI, #1 your face looks like you're constipated, #2 your busoms don't need anymore emphasis!



It's Soooo Hot Here!
The birds have to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for the dogs.
The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
Hot water now comes out of both taps.
You can make sun tea instantly.
You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
The temperature drops below 95 F (35 C) and you feel a little chilly.
You discover that in July it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
You discover that you can get sunburned through your car window.
You actually burn your hand opening the car door.
You break into a sweat the instant you step outside at 7:30 a.m.
Your biggest bicycle wreck fear is, "What if I get knocked out and end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
You realize that asphalt has a liquid state.
The potatoes cook underground, so all you have to do is pull one out and add butter, salt and pepper. and of course Sour Cream, diced onions and a few serving spoons of Chile
Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying boiled eggs.
The cows are giving evaporated milk.

I got this as a forward from a friend and it's so true!

If you like watching MWC football, please sign the petition...Heck if you know someone who knows someone who likes to watch MWC football, Please take 2 second and sign the petition and tell everyone you know about it...


8 months already!

Here are some recent pictures of Ethan at 8 months! Time really flies by! He's rolling all around, eating people food, and loving his first hot hot hot summer. I can't wait till fall because it seems like right now, there's nothing you can do outside during the day but swim. And Ethan loves to be outside! Ahhh, any other moms know what I'm saying? Anyway, thanks for looking at all of my scrapblogs, I'm trying to win a contest so I have them all on my blog to get the most 'views' possible. I get to remove them July 17th.


Sack O' Potatoes

Lately Joe loves to throw Ethan over his shoulder and say, "Here's my Sack O' Potatoes!" Ethan loves it. It helps Ethan get rid of unwanted baby gas too! :)


God bless the USA

"Duty. Honor. Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn." General Douglas MacArthur (1880 - 1964) Address to the cadets of the U.S. Military Academy in accepting the Thayer Award, May 12, 1962
Happy 4th everyone!


Wanna see?

Okay so we all got together at Grandma's house for some pictures! Just imagine the chaos!
It was nice to spend time with Joe's friends. I love their wives!
All of the sisters in law!
I thought Ethan would fall off the swing for sure! Nervous wreck!
