Enough is enough...




As you may know...we have a garden...it's producing more than we can possibly eat...we've resorted to having a "roadside" stand out in front of our house and just leaving a jar and leaving it up to the customer to pay what they want or can...one week down...nobody has taken anything...
After picking our bounty from the garden tonight, it was evident that we needed to take the next step... (see below)...

Hot...rod...Huffy...



Hello...we spent Sunday evening riding circles on our bikes, tractors, etc...
We took the one training wheel off Hayden's bike...he really did a good job about learning to ride without it... the only problem is that he thinks he needs to ride really fast and furious...enjoy the last two videos...

Monkey see,monkey do,monkeys eat popsicles too.


Once again we spent the day outside yesterday...the weather here this week is not hot at all...the boys played in "the tree's", ate Popsicles, hurt their toes, got dirty, posed in the cornstalks behind our house, and as grandma would say..."tee total loafed" around!!!






Thankfully Case can now walk again...one of his metal toys fell off his shelf on to his big toe...it's really purple today...ouch!!!

so very busy...





WOW...that's all I have to say about the past week...we were so very busy, but had so much fun...

Vacation Bible School at our church was this whole week...I was in charge of crafts for the 6th,7th and 8th grade boys and girls...challenging, but fun...the boys had a blast and were very busy in their classes and doing their own crafts and recreation...

Granny Pam and Berba came over Tuesday afternoon and stayed until Sunday afternoon...they were gracious enough to help at VBS all week...thanks guys!!
Mom and I were very busy with GG's wedding stuff...we spent the day in Joplin on Wednesday...3 hours in Hobby Lobby alone...we were very successful and glad GG liked everything!!

Tuesday before Granny and Berba came over, we had lunch and played on the Slip-n-Slide over at Riley and Kinsey's house...it was fun!!!!


Carrying the flag in for VBS...
Would you like a cookie with your icing...some of the cookies the kids decorated at VBS...


On our way to see the new Harry Potter movie one afternoon...is it bad luck to have the umbrella open in the back seat???

Ride 'em cowdog...

On Sunday after church...Jim and I got baptized!!!!!!!!!!! We are so thrilled and happy!!!! Mom, grandma, Jim's mom Carol, sister Jamie, uncle Bob, aunt Sharon, cousin Misti and the boys were witness to our wondrous event...

There were 7 of us at the church to get baptized that day...members of our church were there to celebrate with us and cooked us a wonderful lunch....
