Hodge Podge

Here's just a little of this, that and the other from the last couple weeks...don't know where all our time is going, but I just can't seem to keep up! Brandon's Grandparents were here to visit two weeks ago and it feels like just yesterday! Now we're headed to California in two days, we're gonna be gone for like THREE WEEKS and I haven't even started thinking about what we might need to pack...
Anyway, Carter is keeping us busy...mostly because...


he's into a lot of mischief these days...

A LOT of mischief...



...the book and the swimsuite just happen to be the only two items I thought to take pics of...my hair brush also got the toilet treatment a long with a handful of Jemma's hairclips...gross!!!!



Jemma, thankfully, hasn't been quite as troublesome. In fact, she helped me pick 7 POUNDS of strawberries on monday!

She ate her fair share of them too.


Messy business, eh!?!
She has also been taking her first set of swimmin' lessons and LOVES them!
I've been a little crafty...my mom sent me some leftover fabric from my sister's prom dress because Jemma had been asking for a Cinderella dress-up...Jemma sat next to me at the kitchen table almost half the time I was sewing on it because she was SOOO excited! Thanks again Mom! It would have just been blue cotton, no sparkles, without this AwEsOmE fabric!

We also had this huge slab of wood leftover from our old crib...it was the base that held the mattress up...and I decided it would make a cute picture board...(it could be a headboard too...we'll see). I just need to get some of the kids' pictures/cards on it.


We also have a little garden...the community has these fields where you can pay $30 for 240 sq. ft. and plant whatever you want...we're yet to reap anything we've sown, but at least things are still alive...(zuchini, yellow squash, pumkins, decorative gourds, carrotts, tomatoes, red bell peppers, green beans, and sunflowers...we planted corn, but all of the seeds rotted...lame!)


Brandon's been workin' on the golf game here and there and hangin' out with the family...what am I going to do when school starts back up in the fall? We just won't think about that right now. Happy Summerin' to the rest of you!

Love the new background! And I can't believe that gorgeous princess dress. I had no idea what an amazing seamstress you are! That is awesome. And as for the picture board, also super cute. Love your blog!

I think it's funny that you are just upstairs here at Mom and Dad's house, and yet I am here in the living room commenting on your blog. That little Carter is TROUBLE! Don't worry--I'm sure it's just a phase. Hayden's given some of our toothbrushes the toilet treatment. YUCK!!! Your garden looks great. See you in the morning! (Actually, I'm talking to you right now. Haha!)

Ha...the toilet items. That made me laugh. Thanks again for your wonderfulness my last few moments before leaving forever. Hope you have many fabulous times on your trips.
