April 25, 2010 More Swings!

Sunday, J&J spent all day outside playing, playing, playing.

April 24, 2010 Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

I ate a lot of dough on this Saturday. I'm not ashamed to admit it.

April 23, 2010 Slick Dos!

April 22, 2010 Swing!

Winding, twining and having fun on the swings. She left her brand new shoes outside that night and Puppy at them. I liked them shoes.

April 21, 2010 Me!

Not a bad self-portrait!

April 20, 2010 Growing!

The beans are winding and twining and we are 2 weeks from being able to put them in the garden. It'll be interesting getting them transferred.

April 19, 2010 Visitor

I thought this cat was big, then he got shaved. My cats are not happy with his new cut.

April 13 thru 18, 2010 Nada

I was in Maysville, Kentucky and actually did not pick up the camera for 6 days. I cannot believe this, but it is true. Guess that 50 hour work week kicked my butt.

Here are a few favorites to make up for my lapse:

My favorite place to get a fountain drink is Steak and Shake. The cup is huge and keeps the drink cold for hours.

James jumping for limbs on the trees. Boy has grown several inches over the winter.

I don't know. I just captures something about Jon and my interactions.

These thorns are vicious!

Jesse and her serious face. She is a happy child, but sometimes like this moment I captured, I see her go inside her head. She seems to think things out and decides on a course of action. Not too much a seat of her pants kinda gal.

April 12, 2010 Traveling

Traveling for the week again in Hicksville, USA.

April 11, 2010 Peaceful

I thought he was pretending, but he really is conked out, sleeping.

April 8th, 9th and 10th, 2010 Recap

Where Thursday, Friday and Saturday pictures went I don't know. What I do know is that we spent lots of time playing outside.

Jesse has the best "stubborn" face.

Let me tell you a story of a swindler. Or rather a smart little boy. On Thursday I pull into the driveway at Meme and Papaw's house and see James riding a brand new bicycle. The story went like this, per Meme:

James threw one of their tricycles/bicycles in a fit and Papaw told him to go in the house. James went in the house crying to Meme. Meme was able to get the story out of James that he was frustrated because his knees kept hitting the handle bars on the bike he was riding. He threw the bike cause he was frustrated. Meme encouraged James to go tell Papaw why he threw the bike. James did and 5 minutes later Papaw was on his way to Walmart to get James a bigger bike.

Smart little boy.

I love that they are army crawling trying to sneak up on Puppy.

April 7, 2010 8:30PM Bedtime

Jon tried to sneak off to bed early at 8:30PM. I got him up. :D

April 6, 2010 We Aren't the Only Losers

While Jesse's face is funny, I was actually trying to sneak a picture of my neighbor taking down his Christmas lights. hahahahah!

SHHH! James has a boy purse.

April 4, 2010 Go Baby, Go!

An Awesome day flying kites!

April 3, 2010 Cricket

J&J plum wore this cricket out playing with him.

April 2, 2010 Turkey Stop

Shared the back story on Handy Hooker but too funny not to share again.

April 1, 2010 Whiz

My blog on Handy Hooker about Whiz, my she-male cat, elicited a few questions on what a she-male cat looks like. Well, I'm not sorry to let my sarcasm show, but a butt is a butt and all that good stuff. ;) He's shy and well, I think he'd be a little offended if I showed his girly parts. ;)

March 31, 2010 Swings!

First day of swinging on the swings in the springtime.

March 30, 2010 Do It Himself Man

James went and got the screwdriver and insisted he was going to fix the train himself.

March 29, 2010 Like Father Like Son

This is a Jon face and I love it!

March 28, 2010 Gorilla Tape

What do you do on a Sunday afternoon when you decide to clean out the lint in the dryer and the hose breaks and you get the kids dressed to go to the store for another one and are out the door when you realize the tags on your vehicle expired two days prior on your birthday so you can't go to the store to get another tube and your husband won't be home for another 5 hours and you got laundry that needs done for work the next week?

You grab the Gorilla Tape out of your work bag and tape that sucker up!

March 27, 2010 Seeds!

That time of the year! Time to get ready for the garden!

March 26, 2010 Mushrooms

For my 32nd birthday, I was in Aberdeen, Ohio working at the DP&L powerplant. I ate ice cream for breakfast, Dairy Queen ice cream and fried mushrooms for lunch and ice cream for dinner. It was awesome. I made it home by 6PM that evening where flowers and a semi-clean house was waiting for me along with Jon and the kids.

March 25, 2010 Bridge

The bridge between Maysville, Kentucky and Aberdeen, Ohio. This is traveling into Kentucky.

March 24, 2010 Tools of the Trade

Coffee, change and a razor knife. What can I say? I need them everyday.

March 23, 2010 Rabbit Ears

How I entertain myself when staying overnight by myself for days on end in a motel.

March 22, 2010 Motel

Day 1 of my overnight stays in Maysville, Kentucky. I got the handicap room, which turned out to be a pretty good room.

March 21, 2010 Four-wheeling

They are playing four-wheeler polo and hitting the ball around the yard.

March 20, 2010 Worms

J&J spent a lazy afternoon digging up worms in the backyard and relocating them to holes they had dug for the worms.

March 19, 2010 Poop?

Jon comes into the kitchen and shakes out the blanket and pillow, leaving a trail of brown droppings. He looks at me in disgust and says, "Your cat shit." No smell was wafting towards me, so I investigated Jon's claims...Apparently, he can't tell the difference between poop and chocolate.

March 18, 2010 Rearview Mirror

It was a long hard day playing at Meme's house for them and they didn't even make it home before crashing in the car.

March 17, 2010 Bikers

Cincinnati near University of Cincinnati, some biker dude on a dud of a bike.

March 16, 2010 Cloud Watching

J&J naming shapes in the clouds. What a peaceful little capture. These two make my heart smile.
