tractor time

we've got great neighbors... really nice, friendly, awesome neighbors...

look how happy my kids are! all from a riding lawn mower!


and the picture is ella's person! i love when kids draw like this... makes me think she is quite the little artist!

where have i been?

i cannot believe that it has been sooo long since i posted! again! sorry to mike and charligne!

okay... so here is what is going on!

i have been helping out our neighbors (jess and jason) by keeping their kids a couple times a week. i've only done it four times now... but they are doing great! ella loves having molly girl here... ALL DAY! it's like a daytime slumber party!

and payton who is 6 has entertained fisher more than i ever thought possible!

i'm not going to lie to ya... it's hard work having 4 kids under my care... but, they are all really doing well! i made a mini water park one of the days that they were here... it was crazy, hot, fun, and a lot of wet kiddie! they all seemed to really enjoy it, pizza was ordered after and i needed a big ol' glass of wine--

the start of something special

cornhole... it is not what exactly what you think of when you hear the name...

it sounds gross and horrible... but, it's not.

it is the obsession sweeping the southeast. and our neighborhood.

chris got cornhole boards for christmas in 2007... he had played with some of his friends before requesting some of his own. in march 2008 he and our neighbors started playing every single weekend. it became an obsession...

now, it's a gang.

our new neighbors next door (just renters until their house is finished being built) are also cornhole players. back in late april they came over for a dark party. we all got along really well and they are great people. and the husband is a sh*t talker just like chris and our neighbor jason. our new neighbor husband (jeff) and his brother in law belong to the Boone Lake Mafia (BLM) it sounds like a fraterity for lake goers... they wear t-shirts and hats, have stickers on their cars supporting the BLM. well, last thursday jason (who works night shift) took the night off to start the weekend cornhole throwing early. the rivalry began. we live in the subdivision Crystal Springs... so, now jason and my husband are the founding members of the Crystal Springs Mafia (CSM)

chris and jason started their sh*t talking with the BLM and the rivalry formed and the obnoxioushness as well. chris and jason needed tshirts made... fast. so, being the handygirlywhirly that i am, i got to it. jason is an overhand thrower, so his shirt reads "death from above" and chris' says " king cornholio"

jeff put a sign in his front yard saturday morning stating "tonight, the professional BLM -vs- the ameature CSM" chris later went and spray painted over it CSM 4 Life-

it's obnoxious, hilarious, and ridiculus.

as for the game... the CSM won... they have not yet released their summer schedule... but for those wanting to attend-- i will post about where to purchase tickets in advance.
