Wow, it really has been a while since I posted,  but I have a valid excuse.   Our computer is dead...lightning got it.   We have had a crazy and fun summer so far.   VBS, County fair, July 4th tractor pull, Church camp and much more.    I am just going to post so pics of all fun...Enjoy!

Summer is here!

Well summer has arrived in Iowa and we are loving it.   I have gotten back on my cleaning schedule,  so mornings are cleaning and laundry...and afternoons are for crafts, naps and playing outside.    We are trying to make this summer very fun.
I found a recipe for Puff paint on Pinterest,   Equal amounts if Elmer's Glue and shaving cream and a few drops of food coloring.   Stir until you get stiff peaks and them paint to your hearts content.   Takes awhile to dry,   but so much fun.
Mr. Blake in need of a haircut.
He is not a baby anymore...he is now his Daddy's mini me.
Summer evenings are great for family walks down the dirt road and taking time to pick the clover.
It is also the time for kite flying.       Hope you all are having a great start to your summer,   Stay safe.

Spring has sprung...

 My nephew came for a visit, so of course we had to take some pictures of these cousins together.
 Two five year old, they are only four months apart.
 Here is Miss Piper on Easter...she is getting too big.

And of course the duo...double trouble, double fun, double the love.

Life is moving on!

Piper had some dental work done at the hospital last week,  she loved being entertained by the clown before had.    Kudos to the hospital for was great.
My three loves are growing so fast.
We are loving that spring is slowly making its way to the Midwest.
These two love laundry baskets.

Life with these two...never dull!

 One of Brenna's favorite "toys" is a pop up laundry hamper from the Dollar Tree...can we say cheap fun.
 And now we find Blake in the "junk bucket" (used to hold items that cannot be burned).
 Somebody was thirsty and Piper's juice just happened to be left on the table.
 Brenna loves her some Veggie Straws...Yummy!
And of course we have bumps and bruises...what, you mean you don't dive out of the chair head first into a basket of toys?

Be a doll Birthday...Piper turns 5

 Can you believe it Miss Piper turns 5 on Monday.   Today we had a little party with her two friends.   When she got up she got to open a birthday outfit from NeeNee and Grumpy.
 Time for presents!
 Can you tell she loved her gift...she received an Molly ~ An American Doll. 
 The theme of the party was "Dolls",  her invitation said "Be a doll and bring one too."
 Yes, they are fenced in.  :)   Piper wanted to have a tea party and sit at her little table...tea party, within reach, one year old not mix.
 Sweet Birthday Girl.
 And of course not party is complete without cake.
 1-2-3 make a wish!

More doll decorations,  it was a very easy party do decorate for,  all I had to do was "shop" the house.
