jack says "i eat them" whenever you talk about animals now. if he doesn't answer with the "i eat them" phrase he opts for "they sound yummy". it's hilarious. i'm guessing he isn't going to be a vegan.

jack has an entire pretend world in the woods behind our house. he has a church, a garage, moster trucks and all kinds of "mo-bills". it's become quite elaborate. i hope he doesn't move out there. that might be hard to explain.

An Evening in May ...

How can you beat a beautiful May evening in a backyard with fresh cut grass? Ride the lawnmower with Daddy. Or ...

Play dippy-do. What a pretty smile my little Maddie has. Or ...
Have a little tractor time with Jackson. I think we may need a bigger trailer.


Here she comes ... and there's another just like her!
Take cover!
They are attacking the parking garage!

jack says: "i'm so embarrassed. i'm going to have to drive my tractor to church." we don't know where he picked up the "i'm so embarrassed" and we're not sure where his tractor is either.

father and son photos were a smashing success and morganton too. ever tried raspberry vanilla cream fudge? you should.

tee ball - jack's first try wasn't a complete success but he managed to run the bases and hit the ball. coach daddy did a fantastic job.

success! homemade pinto beans flavored with salt pork cooked in a dutch oven, hot cornbread and chow chow from a great aunt. i'm thinking that's pretty southern and as vegetarian as we are going to get.

so i'm trying dried beans for the first time - let's see what a good soaking gets me.

A photo of Jack ...

Sometime before the girls made their appearance, Jack decided he didn't want his picture taken anymore. I think he changed his mind, at least for one afternoon.

jack was playing with "coach" today. whether or not he's naturally athletic remains to be seen, but he sure loves to play ball. he also says he knows lots about lots of things.

maddie said momma .... what lovely timing.

i realized that i take for granted how nice it is to sit in barnes and noble and read craft books without wondering watch my kids are destroying. i found lots of books that i loved and need to check out a couple of sites. a few bhg decorating magazines along with paper crafts later, and back home to the fam.

kate is talking about bobby a lot. we don't know who bobby is. apparently he must be a chef because while she was "cooking" last night they seemed to be having quite a conversation.

to asheboro we go. it was a perfect day to visit the zoo and now we know that jack has no fear whatsoever of geese.

dailies: 050209

its a beautiful day to stay inside and re-install a server. at least this evening i'll get to enjoy some quality basement time.

i can't believe that it's the first of may. the kids are growing so fast and the girls are starting to have such wonderful little personalities. they are blooming just like all the flowers.

jack can't play in the tall grass. tall grass is bad. tall grass has itchy bugs, biting spiders, mean mosquitos and lots of sunburn. lots of sunburn.

get ready for the shoting - jack was ready for dr. coffee to do the shoting of the sisters. the sisters weren't as excited and didn't care for it at all. 6 shots / 2 babies = 2 x constant screams
