yesterday we went to see our property, then we went shooting, with a little rock climbing tossed in for fun…
i just love my boys.
even when they act like punks…
and in order to get a “nice” picture i have to have him be serious and look away…
lucky for me i have Big B. who is all sweetness…
they climb chicken coops…
sometimes they are super duper athletic…
and sometimes they are very scary…
but i always love them.
you know you’re a redneck when you and your kids
know all the words to “devil went down to georgia” by the charlie daniels mathews band….
and sing them loudly while driving in the car.
so. it’s october. which means it’s time to think about christmas. and christmas presents.
which leads me to portrait time! i drug the boys out and we had ourselves a time
i also talked my little brother and his girlfriend into doing a little shoot too. so. much. fun.
my little bro and his girlfriend:
this next one is my favorite!
and onto the boys!
they weren’t exactly thrilled to be doing this…
the next one is so fun!
now to figure out what to do with these…..
we had a great father’s day. i had to work from 8am to 1pm… while i worked the boys took handsome hubby down to the park so they could participate in the father’s day fishing derby. they stock the pond with fish just for this derby! there are some big fish in that pond.
my boys didn’t catch any fish. not one.
but they had fun anyway! big B decided he wants to be a fisherman.
when i got off work we went up into the mountains to go shooting. it’s a beautiful day. not much wind, a little rain, but not cold. while the boys were shooting i took angus for a hike. and found these….
and i found this little guy in the sagebrush
and here’s my boys!
big B was a shootin’ fool! he was shooting the rifle and the semi automatic rifle. he didn’t want to stop even after the rain started coming down. he was out there with water dripping off his hood…
and has now decided he wants to be a gun man.
not a hunter because i told him if he kills it, he has to eat it.
he said, “what if i kill a tree?”
i said, “you’ll have to eat it.”
and here comes the rain!
worms! i saw worms!!
it’s official. it’s spring.
i wanted to share the cards my boys made me for mother’s day.
they are beautiful.
and heartfelt. little L’s made me cry and big B’s made me laugh!
first… big B’s.
i love the colors!
and a close up of the poem.
and a close up of little L’s…
Dear mom, I hope you have a great
Mothers Day, I will Love you for ever and ever. I Love you
with all my sole and heart. I will never not love you mom
because you my one and oliy mom.
yep. my mother’s day was awesome.
and there are worms.
we had a wonderful day filled with family and good food.
can’t forget the candy.
lots of it.
and easter egg hunting…
use your eyes and look for the egg little D. which hand is your right hand?
well at least she was listening to us!
she needed a little more help to find it. but we got a great laugh!
(she wasn’t crying… just being dramatic.)
but really when you are so hopped up on candy, who can stay sad!?
i took lots of pictures.
these were some of my favorite.
i’ll share some great ones of little D and big K later this week!
happy happy easter to you
the countdown is on! just 5 days left until we leave to get billy!
(my new horse!!)
i’m very excited and spend a lot of time doing this…
watching training videos. i love doing this. i’m driving my family crazy because i’ve figured out how to watch them on our tv…
i talked about our spring. in montana.
last night handsome hubby and both boys got “snowed in” in bozeman and ended up spending the night at my dad’s.
thanks dad and joni!!
the roads were terrible. slushy, icy, snowy. there were people in the ditch left and right… there were highway patrolmen in the ditch. more than one.
so they made the call to turn around and head back to dad’s.
good call! they made it home safe and sound this morning.
just in time to help me paint pots at the flower shed!
so. much. fun! it was a great day today.
my boys are crazy. so is handsome hubby.
but both are really really smart. the other day in the car big B told me that the mom is always the boss. little L agreed wholeheartedly.
i asked if their wives would also be the bosses. they both said “yes!”
they are so smart.
and crazy… handsome hubby took these today.
this is where things get really crazy… i guess little L set up these photos himself!
and i guess i’m a little crazy too.
