Recent Family Photos

10/11/09–Got Scott’s dad to snap a few quick family pics after church…Hadn’t had a family photo in 3 yrs.! Little Kerry is now 6 and Sarah is 8…and Scott and I, of course, are getting younger and younger every day!! =-)

Ah, there we go…the youngins are smiling a little in this one! 🙂

Daddy thinks he’s SOOOO clever…but you can tell by my face that I’m on to something. I can tell by Sarah’s face that she’s bursting at the seams…trying to hold it in and not tell me! Little Kerry’s like “Hee, Hee, Hee! Mom’s got rabbit ears…I’m not going to tell her…I could keep this to myself ALL day!!” =-)

Hee, Hee, Hee…it’s just the parents in on it this time…See how happy I look!! 🙂 The kids look so innocent and unsuspecting!! Hee, Hee, Hee!! =-)

(Can you tell I’ve been w/ Scott a LONG time?! Yes, I’m certainly learning some of his ways and sense of humor!! =-) )

Scott and I…I just love how serious he looks and how his expression hardly changes at all from 1 pic to the next!! How does he do that?!

My gray shows a little more in this one. It was nice to be closer to hubby though….but he looks even MORE serious in this one!

It’s All About The Princess

“Kid’s Play…It’s all about the Princess!!” =-)

Our neighbor Keon came over to play w/ the kids. They have such a great time playing together, just using their imaginations. (I’m thinking Sarah came up w/ this idea, but the boys played along! 😉 )

These dudes are serious about protecting the princess!! =-)

Keon looks cool in this photo, huh?! Just look at that focus! 🙂

Ooh, Kerry looks kinda mean, huh?! He’s very serious…and tough, of course!

A-h-h…Sarah, the princess. Yep, she’s lovin’ it!! 🙂

Happy Monday!

Ever had this feeling?  I sure have, but it’s never been this funny:

Who Can Relate?

I’m sick again…bronchitis this time.  I’m feeling pretty depleted.  However, it certainly could be worse, and this too shall pass.  I sure can relate to this pic, though, and of course, I think it’s cute:

Preciousness and Puppies

They’re SOOOOO cute!  You think I want another puppy?  Who said I want another puppy? 🙂

Memories…

…for Mother’s Day…

I’ve been reminiscing this morning…looking through some old blog posts from 1-2 yrs. back. I found a few quotes from my kids that I thought I’d share again. I’m glad I posted these, ’cause they sure do bring back memories…

–My son has really been acting out the last couple of days. (I think Kerry assumes he can get away with more, and he’s mad that Daddy is not here.) Anyway, I’ve had to “crack down” on him. Sunday night, the kids and I had the following dialogue :

“You’re S-O-O-O mean!” exclaimed Kerry.

Apparently, I’m not mean enough!” I maturely quipped back. ;-)

Sarah suddenly exclaimed, “No Mommy, please don’t get any meaner!!” -D

**From my Sarah Beth, over a yr. ago:

–Sarah had gotten upset about something and wanted me to hold her. So, I sat down with her in the old recliner. After a few minutes, I told Sarah I had to get up, because I had a lot of things to do.

Just a few more seconds,pleaded Sarah. Oh, Mommy, sometimes I miss the ‘baby days.” -D

**Some of Kerry’s one-liners from about 2 yrs. ago:

–”Don’t give me a bath, Mommy!” protests Kerry. “I don’t need one. I don’t stink bad, I stink good!”

–”Do you want to wear your rain boots today, Kerry?” I ask. “NO!” he says. “I want to wear my sunny boots!”

–At dinner one night, Kerry says, “I love your hamburgers, Mommy…even the black part!”

–”I’m mad at you, Mommy!” Kerry exclaims. “And you’re getting fired!”

–(One) morning, little Kerry says to me, “Good Morning, My Happiness!”

–Last night, when I was putting Kerry to bed, his words brought tears to my eyes. …And no, surprisingly this time, the tears weren’t from hilarious laughter. You see, Kerry has more than one way of “getting to” Mommy…

Kerry looked up at me so sweetly and said, “You’re the mommy I should have.”
