Country Living

Living in the country has its advantages, especially if you are a little boy. Today while we were burning limbs Cole asked if he could....hmm what word should I use......we'll just say "tinkle"....I know that's a girl word. Anyway before relieving himself he decided it was a good idea to dig a hole first.......let's just say he is a good shot and no I did not let him cover the hole back up!

Boys will be Boys no matter where you's just better that the neighbors don't see!!

Sorry no photo available ;)

Who Needs Diamonds

Mother's Day has come and gone and I am left with more beautiful gifts to treasure. No I didn't get a diamond ring or new car, I got the best gifts a girl could want. I got Homemade from the heart gifts and with lunch to boot it was a great Mother's Day!

This is a card that my sweet family made me and Kylie even signed the card. See the picture of her in her highchair signing it. Rob took a picture of Cole doing the same thing on my very first Mother's Day!

This is a clay heart that Cole made me in Art at school. It came home on Friday in a package and Cole wanted me to open it then soooo bad. I had to hide it so he wouldn't open it for me. I wanted to be surprised on Mother's Day. I love it!!

This is a Periwinkle that his teacher helped him plant in a beautifully painted pot!!

Batter Up

Cole had his first T-ball game of the season last Saturday and he was in "Full Swing". He missed a whole season of sports due to my pregnancy so he was ready.

I call this the "Tushie Swing"
This is Cole and a Kindergarten classmate, Issac on opposing teams.

Cole throwing one into home. Notice the grass hanging out of his mouth. He spent the whole game with that grass in his mouth. Sunflower seeds, grass....I guess it's all the same!!

8 Months Old

Our little girl turned 8 months old yesterday....where has the time gone?
Here are a few things about our sweet Kylie:
1. She has mastered Mama, Dada and now is saying
"Ba" when we go outside, which we think is Bye-Bye. When I leave to pick-up Cole from school I always say "lets go Bye-Bye and when we walk Daddy and Cole out to leave in the morning we say "Bye-Bye".
2. She is holding her own bottle...she needs a little help putting her hands on it to start. It is a very heavy bottle with all the components inside!!
3. She loves all the baby food we have given her. Although she has made a few faces at some things (like Meat, I would too cause it STINKS) she has not turned anything down. It is finally starting to show-have you checked out those thighs!!!
4. Although she is not crawling yet she is doing much better about being on her tummy. When she is on her tummy she turns all around instead of going forward.
5. Since being off of the Reflux pillow she has started turning over in her bed. And around and upside down!! She finally has freedom to move around and does not stay in one spot for too long.
6. She is officially off of her medication and so far so good. We will keep praying that all goes well.
7. She likes to wave at other people except her Mommy and Daddy. Other people will tell her Hi and have been saying she is waving and we finally got to see her do it. It is really cute cause she will do it even when people aren't looking at her.
8. She likes attention and will GROWL until you give her some!! It is kinda hard to have a conversation with someone with all that growling but once you acknowledge her she will stop.
9. Kylie is the happiest most content baby I have ever seen. Once she got over her rough couple of weeks after birth she has been the easiest baby and likes everyone and we LOVE her!!

7 Random Things

Wow I got tagged......Not that anyone is going to care about this but here goes...except Jessica since she is the one that tagged me!!

1. I grew up in the country with and around cows, chickens, horses, rabbits, a hog, etc. and been able to witness lots of births of many animals. I was in 4-H, FFA, judged hay once, helped grow our own veggies and use to love to drive my 3-wheeler all over the country side…I know I’m a Nerd!! Who woulda thunk it!!

2. My middle name is Ann and had always been the plan, but my mother had trouble deciding between Betty and Leslie as my first name. I glad she went with Leslie.

3. I am addicted to movies and T.V. in general but my guilty pleasure is reality T.V. such as Big Brother, Survivor, Hells Kitchen, American Idol, and Biggest Loser.

4. I use to play the piano and clarinet but now I don’t have a musical bone in my body. I do still have the same piano that my Mom, Sister and I played on.

5. Speaking of bones, I have never officially broken a bone. I think I broke a toe once but never went to the Dr. I have gone to the ER for a sprained ankle though.

6. I had always wanted to do something in Criminal Justice and ended up working for a Police Department totally by accident. I worked there for 8 loooong years. It was the most interesting job ever since I had to do crazy things like learn the Penal Code and remember it, dispatch, do research for news stations, deal with sex offenders info, and get cursed out daily by parents and oh my boss!! (AND I met my sweet husband there!!)

7. I am a very sentimental person and love heirlooms. Although my home is not decorated with new and matching furniture, most of it is furnished with antiques from both sides of my family which I love!! Some of the things I have are rocking chairs, an iron bed, glass door knob, my great-grandmothers painted wooden bowl, paper that my grandmother wrote Silent Night on in German and something very special my grandmother’s wedding book from 1918 complete with a baptism picture of her.

So not very interesting but there you have it!
