Genuine happiness

Of all the luck to have for our 3 days in Florida... It rained for 2 of those! It's a good thing we went to the beach the very first day, because that was the last chance we would have. And even then, we had to leave because the rain started to fall before we were wanting to be done (hence very poor quality of photos because it was so dark outside). Atleast it was warm. Very warm, and windy. Very windy. But even that small amount of time was worth it. Nutmeg would never get near the water. We've been to Florida a couple of times this summer, and she would not get near the waves. Wanted NOTHING to do with them, even if we tried to hold her. Somehow though, through the magic of granparents... Nutmeg was in the water. Her and Pa ran in and out of the waves. Something we've tried many times to do with her, but it took someone else for her to be brave enough.

I loved watching her out there. I loved that it was my dad, the one who taught me these same games, to be the one out there teaching her. It was perfect.

Thank you Pa.

Even if only in a dream

So I'm really tired tonight, but someone (whom I won't mention names, hehem Adrienne...)pointed out it's been a long time since I posted. It hasn't been that long, but it has been a bit. So here are a couple pictures to tide you over until tomorrow. We were able to go to Florida with my parents this last week.. hence the beach. But we'll save all that until I'm not mis-typing every other word.
Good night. And dream of warm, sunny beaches......

She wants to be

a Rock Star!

She dresses in the craziest outfits every day. She has really decided to take this whole thing rather serious. I don't know if she's going to start some pretty rockin trends when she gets older... or if she is going to have to hire a stylist. Either way, she turns heads where ever she goes. The other day we went to pick up Bug from school and man, I wish I would have taken a picture.

Purple tutu dance costume.
Pink terrycloth pants.
Gold silk shirt.
Arm warmers.
Streaked blue hair.
Pink Headband.
Ugg Boots.
A huge yellow purse that looks like a duck (really an easter basket).
And don't forget she carries a microphone with here everywhere she goes!

Yup, it was, um, cute! But I do hope her lack of caring what others think doesn't end. Because, she really doesn't care.... for now.

One of those days I suppose

I feel about like this.

No reason. Plenty have a reason to feel like this (heather *wink*), but I don't.

I think I'm just tired. Maybe a good night's sleep is all I need. I'll work on that. Tonight perhaps.

It's that time of year

When my sister was out we made a point to go to the pumpkin patch here. It was fun, I only wish Bug had been able to go with us. He was in school. Poor thing.
The girls weren't in the best mood, so getting any pictures was rough. Hopefully we'll make one more trip out so Bug can go too (and of course so I can catch some pictures of them). Hopefully whenever we move our new home will have a pumpkin patch close by. Some traditions will be hard to loose.

Caught in the act!

The kids are always in the back yard now. All the kids. The neighbor kids. Friend's kids. Everyone. And I love it! But this time, it was just Ase out there. Can you tell she's pleased?

I know, I know are probably getting sick of me just posting pictures of others... but Autie Jo isn't. I haven't had a chance to send her any of these photos yet, so for now this is how she's getting to see them. Poor girl!

And yes, this may be the last posted group... just maybe! If you honestly knew how many cute shots I got of them then you might understand!
