Bubba turns 3

turning three is tough...

really, really, tough.

the toughest part is trying to keep your cool, while dad takes pictures...

and your cousins on the other side of the table (and cake)

taunt you..

you know this is going to be a battle...

the battle of who blows out YOUR candles..

its you or them...

you've got to keep your eyes on them...

cause they are quick to the draw...

really quick

and hey, its only your first day of being three...

this stuff takes practice!!

so, when you lose the battle, you strike back with all you've got...

yes, this is WAR!

you may have lost that battle....

but not the war!

blow them out kid...
as fast and as furious as you can!!!

and enjoy the rest of YOUR day!

Happy Birthday Bubba!

its fall

and im in denial,
which means that i forget to have my kids grab sweatshirts when we go places...
but the warm, summer weather quickly turns chilly  as the sun goes down.
so to solve my problem, i like to keep a bag full of sweaters in the car for those "emergency" moments
 this means i need a bag that hold NINE sweaters...
yes, i said NINE!!

where does one find a bag that holds NINE sweaters with room to spare?

my friend Jane,
 from Maiden Jane has the solution!!!
check this out!

all NINE sweaters not only FITS in this bag, but there is plenty of room to spare...

i even have room to add a little extra cargo

the big flood of 2011

the sun sets over the flooded waters.

(which is also mostly under water)
the bank
a car

down the street...
a few more cars
the fire station
the city buildings
road dept
