They say all babies look the same?

I had to dig through my blog and pics to find all the hospital ones of our kids in the hospital. And wouldn't you know it... we never got one of Parker Monday night in the delivery room. Only in postpartum and even those pics were more of the other kids looking at him, no close ups of Parker. That tells you right there... taking drugs keeps you sane!



And Parker

They all do kinda look the same. Maybe it's just the closed eyes?

This hunting nonsense just went too far... get outta my craft room!

I love my husband, but this is an all time low. I went to my craft/sewing room in the garage today and found this:

What the? Who the? Okay so let's not get carried away, this room is never really in a state of organization, but there was no straw, feathers, cd's, paper and other miscellaneous things on the floor earlier this week! It's like he let all these birds loose to do what they want with my stuff. Oh I was mad. Not to mention 40 weeks + 1 day pregnant!!!

I was fine with the chicken coop of quail... it's in the BACKYARD. But 4 chuckar and 2 pheasants in that kennel in my sewing room?
MY room?! Outside Justin, outside. Why are these guys getting the 5 star treatment they're just gonna get shot.

He got them to go shooting with our brother in-law tomorrow morning, which I am also fine with. We can eat them for lunch. My problem is I hate animals, I'm allergic to feathers, I'm grouchy and after sweeping and vacuuming this up today I'm still not in labor. Dang it!

Doesn't everyone have a chicken coop full of quail?

Because my husband does. He brought home 10 of these little things in a box the other day. While showing MacKenzie "her" new birds Grayson so helpfully opened the box ALL the way and there were quail flying crazy around the house. Nice. Justin should've been a park ranger/zoo keeper/crocodile hunter.

5 days until the due date

At which date I have a midwife appointment scheduled. There is nothing more disappointing than going to the dr. ON your due date, still pregnant. But I'm thinking this will be the 3rd time this has happened to me so what the heck, let's make a mess of the kitchen! The kids helped make beer rocks tonight.

Flour castles and man do I need some solid counter tops.

Even this little guy helped.

Until he got hungry. Then he ate all his dough raw. YUCK!

Well this baby's not comin anytime soon, but I think I've found a new project to occupy my time

First look at this pathetic excuse for a mail box in my front yard!

I've been looking for inspiration for months now and this morning it came. This was on better after! A sign from the heavens to do something (although the heavens are also rainy and wet today, so maybe I'll just be getting some supplies).

And I think I need some color on mine because look at our numbers on the curb. Very underwater themed. Any color suggestions for the mailbox post thing?

I was hoping a fun colorful mailbox would distract from the HORRIBLE sidewalk cement job Victorville prides itself on (and the chairs blown over in our 20mph winds last night that I'm too lazy to pick up).

MacKenzie playin the sax

She found the sax all covered in dust in the garage and asked to play it. What a little musician we've got on our hands and only 4 years old.

Fix it up Friday?

The girls cut a hole in the middle of this new shirt! So I looked up a few sewing blogs and came up with this idea. It's MacKenzie's own hand print, which she thinks is the coolest thing ever, made with fabric scraps I already had! And of course we had to add a little ruffle on the bottom. Looks much cuter than it was to begin with and for free. Love that!

She thinks she's pretty hot stuff, or did until the neighbor stopped and asked where her helmet was;)

Grayson watched. Poor little guy with his purple trike. He does own a big wheel, his feet don't reach the pedals quite yet, so his preference is the purple tricycle. I guess it worked for my little brother to have girl hand me downs. Lucky for Grayson he at least has frog boots and not pink snow boots like his uncle did.
