Hey, you uber stylish boys, whatcha lookin' at? Is the redneck circus in town? Logan James, where are your pants? What a hot mess....
Bert, what are you looking at?
OH! Well, looky looky. A cat in a tree. That's ironic....being as two firefighters live in the house in the yard where this tree lives. Why are we not laughing at the irony? Because that is OUR cat. Yeah, we got an indoor cat. We cat-sat these 2 cats for a buddy of Andy's and they decided to give us one....as a thank-you. (Next time I'll take the fruit basket.) No, one ran away and they didn't want just one so they asked if we wanted to have the other one. Sure.....sure.
Thanks, Captain Obvious, we had no idea where it was. It was named Thunder (Lightning ran away...insert dumb, overused joke here.) and now it's named Tucker.
Here, kitty, kitty. My brave firefighter husband decided to throw up a ladder and see if Tucker would like an escort down. Nope, higher and higher he went. *sigh*....
I decided to give it a whirl....
Welcome back, Tucker....
We are super thrilled you are here. Next time, there will be no ladder.
Don't try to be all cute and cuddle up to my sleeping, pantless children. (that sounds weird....)
Here's an update on the new baby chicks. They survived! They are growing and chirping and eating their own 50lb bag of special chick food. Super happy about that.
We are gonna put it on the lot at General RV, they have a used section. We loved it but just don't have the time to invest in it right now.
The boys love to use their tools to make random things. Andy and I are talking about redoing the deck and making it a wrap around and expanding it. Logan went and got his saw and started getting to work. Thanks, little monkey.
He's even got the saggy shorts thing going. At least he's wearing shorts!
Here's a quick pictoral update of the tummy tuck....I am in horizontal stripes! I went from a size 16 to a 10. Couldn't be happier with the results.
Reese is obsessed with her jumperoo. She jumps and laughs for 30-45 minutes at a time.
As some of you know, I am starting a new business. The CarSeat Cozee. I am in 3 stores here in town and so very excited about that. A very creative guy from church named Craig is making my website. He is doing a fabulous job. I can't wait to launch it in the next couple weeks. Here are a sampling of the Cozees that are in the stores. If you know someone who is pregnant keep this in mind! "It's not on any registry but it will be their favorite gift!" Sorry, couldn't help myself!
The boys love to help with chores around the house, that's no secret. They love doing laundry. Here is Cole climbing up to pull the clothes out, wondering what Logan is doing.
Yeah.....Logan is "talking" on the phone. That's Reese's baby monitor. He's "talking" to Miss Hope- our wonderful friend who is a very successful realtor. If you are looking to sell or buy Hope Kolker is the realtor you want! (Facebook her!)
Notice they are back in their favorite outfits...just undies. We are potty training them and I have to say, I was so not looking forward to it but they really have far exceeded my expectations. I can count on one hand between the two of them how many accidents we have had. I am so proud of you boys!
Things are good here and nice and busy. I am hoping to start work this coming week doing what I have been doing for the past 11 years-Paramedic/911 dispatcher. I am so blessed to love going to work everyday. I know Andy is super looking forward to being home with the kids more as I get back into the workforce. Maybe this will be the pet form of birth control......it's either that or get used to climbing up ladders to get cats out of trees, Mr Fireman.
