Does it ever stop?

We have discovered that we can climb on tables.... oh what fun! (Definitely trying to break him of that!)

Now that he climbs up on the table... he can see what mommy hides on the dining room table. Obviously he spotted something he likes!

A man on a mission!

See the stairs... conquer the stairs...

What's this? A rock? I will throw it!

We are constantly throwing these stones throughout the yard. I was ok when we weren't mowing the grass... but now that we are, we have to comb thru the grass before we mow! (Don't need a broken window)

He got really quiet the other day... I searched for him and found him at the top of the landing with a book and Sis (Kenzie). He carried the book up the stairs with him... too cute!

WARNING: What you are about to see, was done without a womans supervision!!!!!!

It all started when Jason got his bulldozer running...

Welcome to Testosterone Fest 2009

A few weeks ago, Jason and Bill mentioned about taking out a few of the unnecessary trees from behind my house. I was ok with that... didn't sound too harmful... right? WRONG!

Tuesday I was sitting inside doing some computer work when I heard the rumble of a tractor and bulldozer... That always worries me!

I looked out the back window of my house... and there it was....

A FEW TREES?!? More like all the trees!

It makes me wonder if these guys are even safe...

They definitely tag-teamed those poor trees... they didn't even see it coming. (Oh yeah.. did I mention that the little sheds are gone too?????)

I now sit in my house and look at the pile of trees that were ripped down and the huge hole in my backyard. I'll be sure to put a picture up of the finished product... when it happens. As of now.. 3/4 of the trees are still sitting out back waiting to be burned.

Think Spring!

Happy Easter to everyone! We are beginning to see signs of spring! Some flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and Bill has begun the planting process... Finally!
One of the few pretty flowers in my weed garden.... I really need to work on that this year!

We celebrated Easter at Bill and Teresa's house. Lots of delicious food and tons of laughs! Jason and Matthew hid the easter eggs for the hunt (boy... did they do a good job!). Carter really didn't get the whole idea of the egg hunt... but had a blast watching everyone running around.
He found a few eggs with the help of Nana and Pappy... but didn't get to keep the candy... BOOOO!

I was hoping that the weather would cooperate for us... The sun was shining but it was chilly. It really was a bummer that we had to wear a coat and hat...

We also spent some time at KC's house (Jason's dad).
Uncle Kenny was 'zooming' him all over! Obviously he was loving it!

All suited up to do another egg hunt!

More interested in the ground than finding the eggs.... luckily they made it easy for him.

JACKPOT!!!! Goldfish for Carter... and chocolate for Mommy!

Mr. Cool. He has an obsession with sunglasses... I guess I should buy him a pair that fit him a little better...

This is a picture of a double rainbow from the other morning. We typically see rainbows in the east...but I was able to see a rainbow in the west that morning. I just went out to get a picture of the sky... but when I got out there I realized that there was a double rainbow goin on!
I thought the contrast of the clouds and the sky were really neat...
I love this kind of stuff... Maybe I should be a storm chaser!

Doin some yardwork.

We went out to Blue Spruce Park on Jason's day off. Carter was really into the bridge and the water running under it. The boys just sat there for a while watching the water...

This would be my son trying to get down off the bridge to play in the water...

Lovin the swing!

I absolutely love this picture. Jason and Carter were playing in one of the tunnels. He was having so much fun! We'll definitely have to go back!
