Great vacation

Home from Wallawa lake and what a great vacation it was. Even if it did rain one day. The kids cried when we took the tents down and packed up for home. Little mister cried saying he wanted to stay forever. Here are a few pics from the trip I will post more later as I need to edit some. After all we took over 400 pictures not including the 500+ Grandma and Grandpa took.

Brother at the rodeo where he fell in love with the rodeo princess and dreams of being a mutton buster( riding the sheep)

At the lake where Little Miss loved the water and splashing with mom and dad

Little Mister at the lake where he loved to play with dad and Grandpa. But not to much splashing and just the toes got wet :)

Around camp even after a bath Little mister couldn't stay clean for long, not with holes to dig, sticks to find, and star wars to be played

Little miss even brought her princess attitude with her on vacation :)

sew much fun

Over spring break Karen taught me how to sew. We mad a really cute dress for Little Miss together. This week I attempted to do it on my own. I made Little mister a pair of pj pants. He picked out the fabric and has been waiting for almost a month for me to start on them. Thanks to Allie for loaning me her machine, both mom's for your help answering questions. Miss Melney for your advice, and Mom's co worker for letting me purchase her old machine for such a great bargain. They are not the best and if you look really close you can see some mistakes, but like I tell little Mister you will make mistakes as you learn something new. Here is a picture of my hard work :)

Now I am off to make a pair for little miss with no pattern not those may not turn out but we will try.

We have had yet another busy weekend but lots of fun. little mister played t ball this week and seemed to enjoy it. Aunt M and Aunt B even came to watch. I got to spends some wonderful time with the wallowa ladies getting pedicures and lunch. Thanks Ladies it was so much fun and we missed those of you who couldn't make it. Don't worry I think we are going again next year.

Today we played outside for just a little bit after naps as it was so very hot out. We were able to get a few cute pics. Sorry some are a little blurry, We are borrowing a lens from a friend and still getting used to it. (side note any advice on where to get a good deal on Nikon lens?) Here are our two favirotes of each kido from today.

sorry mom

Last night around 9:30pm Little Mister got up to go to the bathroom. He asked dad to go with him, well what he says is "I don't want any privacy". So I was working on stuff for our upcoming g-sale so when Brian came and talked to me I assumed Coin was back in bed off to sleep. You know what they say about assuming...
About 10:00 I was ready to go to sleep so I got a drink of water from the sink. As I was finishing the last of my water. I hear a little voice behind me. Scaring me out of my mind is little mister looking at me with big brown eyes saying sorry mom. "Sorry for what?" I asked. "For eating a little toothpaste and knocking over stuff in the bathroom". So I began to wonder how much toothpaste, what does the bathroom look like and just how long have you been in the bathroom. Turns out he had been in there the whole time Brian didn't tell me he had asked to be alone. The bathroom as it turns out just had one small thing knocked over. The toothpaste however was a brand new tube that is now more then half gone. Lucky for us it is the fluoride free but unlucky that it taste so good. He gave me a big hug said sorry one more time and then said " mommy, I think I need some sleep my tummy doesn't feel good".

it's what time...

yes I really am posting at 1:40am. I am one sleepy momma. Little miss has gone back to her old ways the last few nights of waking up every few hours but usually after a few cries she heads off into sleep. Not tonight! I had just fallen asleep around 11:30 when a loud cry wakes me up. I check on little miss and she has lost her paci and this is the beginning of our long night. She is quiet for about 15min just long enough to fall back asleep and she starts crying again and this time wakes up brother. So now I have little Mister awake and crying too. So at this moment we are going on the last hour and a half or tossing and turning little mister next to me in our bed while little miss is crying very loudly off and on. I am praying however the Tylenol will kick in soon to help with the new tooth coming in and the Lord will hear my prayers for some sleep. The fun thing as sleepy as I am and I must admit annoyed at the lack of sleep, I really do love being their mom. God has blessed me with two amazing kids. This time seems to be going by so fast and I am trying to treasure each moment even the late nights.Well the crying has begun again and my 10min of quiet is over. I hope you had a good night sleep.

summer Layout

So I have been doing some digi scrapbooking and here is the latest attempt. Yesterday we had Cousin A over to play in the pool. Little mister and Little miss wanted very little to do with the cold water. Little mister pretended to be a diver and would look in the pool with his mask. Little miss was content to be anywhere her daddy might be. Cousin A had fun "surfing" in the pool. Hope you and your family are staying nice and cool.

Happy 4th

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th. We did! We spent the morning with Nana, Aunt M, Aunt B and cousin A. They arrived at our house with Coffee and donuts, thanks guys what a treat. I took some pictures of the kids before they got there in hopes of getting one good picture of the day...

We then went to Miss Paula's house for an afternoon of fun. We got to see so many friends and even Grandma and Grandpa, Uncle T and Aunt R. Little Mister had so much fun playing with his friends and digging in the dirt.

he even made a new friend after his other friends left, Pete(the dog). Little Mister loved following him around and trying to get him to eat anything.

Little Miss had lots of fun playing with everyone and walking all around.I think her favorite thing was being with dad.

We had a great time laughing and hearing lots of stories. Little mister was not a fan of the fire works he feel asleep snuggled up next to me covering his ears. To bad I missed that photo moment but it will forever live in my heart.
