life of three little ones

We are settling pretty well... some nights I don't get enough sleep but most other things are going pretty well, and lack of sleep is to be expected.

Ali is a pretty good sleeper though, most nights.  Some of my lack of sleep is from everyone else that gets up in the morning.

I didn't realize how funny kids are with babies.  Wendell is a good age to use his imagination but not have limitations.  Such as Ali needing buddies to sleep with or needing to wear shoes, whether they are girl shoes or boy shoes and if they fit. 

For Mother's Day we took some pictures to send to the
grandparents.  Of course, I kept one for myself.

On a side note, last week we FINALLY got our tree cut down in the back yard.  We have been waiting months for this and they finally got it cut down.  We are still waiting for them to finish up the job.. then we can get our garden in.

Watching this tree come down was one of the coolest things I've seen.  Wendell requested pictures so although I felt really goofy, I did take some, and some video too.

Although it cost a lot of $$, we're glad we did it.  It opens up our back yard and will allow us to having a lot more 'playing' room, once the pine needles are picked up and sap is dried out.  Oh, and they finish the job. 

** looking at this last picture makes me kind of wonder if I should have kept the tree as it is in this last picture.  I love rock climbing (even though I am not good at it and rarely do it) - maybe I could have turned the tree into a 'tree' climbing workout.  I could have carved out little dents for my feet and hands to climb up.  Ohh.. my imagination is going wild!  Could this be sleep deprivation?? Anywho.. that sure would be fun, but I don't think the hubby would have approved.  : )

Enough ramblings for today....

my water broke at 5:30pm while out on a walk and contractions

'may the forth be with you' (born May 4th) which is perfect for daddy,
our Star Wars fan


Wendell missed school that day, Grandma Charla told
him and Harlie that mommy and daddy were on a date

after she came out the doc handed her to Phil and said
 'girl or boy?'  dad said, girl! and then cut the cord

I think they're pretty excited..

along with the rest of us!

Praise God for all our  blessings!

what do I love about this picture?

Harlie's face as she runs through the sprinkler.

how creative kids can be.. 'fishing' in the alley way.. then 'grilling' some food

my honey playing basketball after work

her using a bucket as a place to sit

both my kids but especially Harlie's face in the mirror

that my kids like to exercise and be healthy (something they are learning from us).  here they are doing a kids exercise tape they got for Christmas... their idea to do it.. not ours!

one of my favorite all time desserts - ice cream, with homemade caramel, chocolate cake (Heather style)

that my daugther wants to show her glasses to daddy who is at work so we take a picture and email it to him.. how sweet is that? and I love the picture on the magizine in the back ground that just happened to be laying on the floor when we took this picture

LOVE - such a great and wonderful gift from God. 

Thank you God for my family!
