Catching up some more...

Alright, so since I feel behind during the whole Jamaica "I lost my memory card" saga, I'm going to catch up now. We had a day to unpack and clean a little after Jamaica before we headed up to Greer to camp with the Bloomfrields and Thurstons. It was A LOT of fun, like it always is with their family. They are a family of 6, and they all get a long, and do lots of family things together, and luckily they let us come. On our way we stopped to pick up some snacks....B wanted some right away..... Then of coarse right when we got there K and J wanted to load on the 4-wheelers with the rest of the kids. B contemplated for a day or so before he got on one.
He was seriously just content walking around and playing with whatever. He loved it.
And what camping trip would be complete without one of the Mulder's vehicles breaking down. Yup, Jase spent a whole day towing the jeep back to pick up the durango (which just had another power window go out...2 down, 2 to go)
I just like him, even when he's whining.
This was just a cool old stump that the kids were playing on right by our camp.
Jana (11 weeks pregnant) chopping wood! Notice the sweet face from my neice Bethany in the background.
Ahhh, then to K's first day of her second year of preschool. And NO she didn't fail, we held her back! She's the smartest kid in her class, um, and by far the oldest.
We took a couple inside, and she wanted to do more (she never does) so we went out in the front yard and she broke out the poses.....
B in the background, not realizing his sister had such moves.


Ah, and then last week I decided to take the plunge...bag my own groceries. I bought a bunch of these bags at walmart. So far so good. We just go through SO many plastic sacks, and we do use them when we make the kids pick weeks (yes that's how we punish them for being mean to each other...they have to pick weeds together and fill a safeway bag), and we also use them to wrap up b's stinky diapers, but we have SO many that we just trash, and I know, you can recycle them, but how cute are these bags?....
And on Sunday, K and I decided to finally make her apron. She's watched me make all of these other aprons, and we've had the cute fabric for hers forever, so we're making one for her and one for her best friend (our neighbor) Oh, and yea, I wouldn't look up while Jase took the picture...gross!
These last two pictures were just soo funny to watch on the camera LCD screen, we went back and forth for a good minute or so.
Sweet....
Chop you up!

You are seriously my idol, I want to be skinny and crafty and live in the country. You are awsome! Kam is a doll baby, I want to just squeeze her. Holy cow I didn't know Janan was preg again, that is so exciting! I want to be preg again, I keep telling myself wait till the end of the comp., but it is so hard. Goodluck this week!
