My 30 some birthday.

My mom and husband both got me flowers. I woke up to a special McDonalds pancake breakfast this morning.

Since our 8th anniversary is Thursday, we went out to eat tonight to one of our favorite restaurants (we've been going there for 13 years).

Gotta love the Amish communities.

home on the range..

I love my little Brenden, never a straight smile! Always pulling a fast one!

Loving my kids.

My traditional American Papist family...self identifying as two boys and two girls.

We are forecasted (actually for the last few days and tomorrow) for severe weather...always tornadoes around my birthday.  This is our last week of school! Genna has already started 2nd grade curriculum in all subjects (been 4 weeks) Knox is finishing up on time and starting 3rd grade in July. Can't wait to be free from books! Bring on the beautiful spring weather!

Finally getting somewhere...only to find out the just as of this week changed a bunch of insect orders..iyiyi. Relearning what I knew growing up now.

We are prettying up our ugly yard right now. I have flowers in, and some beautiful lilies and peonies coming up in my Mary garden and around my other religious statues. I can't wait for them to bloom. Photos to come hopefully if the severe weather predicted doesn't kill everything this week! (it's happened before)
