Ag Days

How hilarious is this?

At the fairgrounds in our area they have something every year called Ag Days. It is a time for us city folk to get out and get the kids introduced to all things farm related. Let me tell you the kids just loved it! It was such a hit we are sure to do it next year. Best of all? It was free! If you think there is nothing to do when you are on a budget, you are wrong! Just keep looking at community calendars and you are sure to find something! In our experience the free events are often the best because the community bans together to make it a success. Here are some of our pics. I hope you enjoy and let me just say that my kids are getting so big and sooo cute! Don't you love their matching overalls?

Girls and Their Shows

I came into the living room the other day to find Emma and Lucy curled up on the sofa watching Olivia. I thought this was the cutest thing I had ever seen...despite the fact that somehow Lucy figured out how to get on the couch. Girls stick together, don't they?

I'm Too Sexy for My Shirt

Look at that milk belly! Isn't he just the cutest little thing? He looks like maybe he partied a little too much at Mardi Gras...just a thought. Maybe a little too much apple juice or something. Ha, I love him.

Dr. Emma

Don't you just love this picture?

This is Emma with her assistant and her crash cart
My Aunt Jan got Emma this adorable medical cart with supplies and a doctors coat that says "Dr Emma". She is adorable going aroung the house fixing things animals with her kit. And in case I haven't said it, THANK YOU AUNT JAN! My aunt always has a knack for finding the neatest gifts for the kids and they love her gifts no matter what she gets, its a hit!

Nice Necklace

Do you like the necklace Emma made for Nick? Isn't it just adorable? While she was making it she was telling me "I bet he'll put it on and say its the most wonderful necklace ever!" Of course I had to let Nick in on that secret so that her little dream could come true. He is such a good daddy. He wore the necklace all night, even washing dishes after Emma was already sound asleep. I love him so much.

Last night I was on my way home from the gym and had a very insightful convo with God. We are all looking for our purpose in life, wondering what else is out there for us. Last night God reaffirmed for me that I am here for my family...to be Nick's help mate and to raise these children for the Lord. I know that is kind of obvious, duh! But I think that my family is here as my purpose in life not just to tag along with me for the ride. For those of us that feel that our families are our purpose in life I think it sometimes becomes very easy to lose sight of that purpose. After all our family is part of our everyday life and sometimes it just begins to seem mundane. We must remember to keep fosuced though and to persevere through. For me, thinking that these three sillys are why I am here helps. And knowing my purpose in life is to make their lives better makes doing the laundry a little easier.

It has begun

Poor Lucy. No one told her when she was taken from the Humane society that she was going to be asked to wear bunny ears. When Nick saw her he said "oh great, its beginning." Emma has big plans of getting her doggy shoes and doggy hats. I want to get her a doggy sweater so between the two of us she will be well outfitted. Poor thing.

Lucy on her new bed

Lucy being tucked in by Emma

This is Lucy the Lab
I would like to introduce the newest member of our family. This is Lucy. She is a three year old Lab we rescued from the humane society. She has been such a joy to us! We picked her up yesterday and she is just perfect. Housebroken, she doesn't bark, loves the kids, stays in the yard, and could care less we have a cat. She is such a blessing. Lucy was very skinny and found in a rural area. I really believe she must have had a family that couldn't afford her anymore...poor thing. I am so happy she is with us and I think she is too! I am sure you will hear more about Lucy in days to come!

The Two Cutest Kids

I just cannot believe how quickly these two are getting! Aren't they just precious? The first picture may be my all time favorite, first of all because Emma is so cute in it and secondly because Calvin can't see what is going on at all and is so oblivious he is getting his picture taken. The second photo captured one of my favorite smiles Calvin does. He just gets so excited and cheesy. It just makes me want to squeeze him.
