Fancy Nancy…not so much

When I take Viv to the gym, or Costco, people comment on how fancy she is because she LOVES to have headbands and necklaces, sometimes bracelets and shoes when we head out the door….but here's a little known Vivica fact…..90% of the time…this is what she looks like….

….hardly dressed, hair amuck, food on face, and not a jewel to bestow your eyes on!  Yup, plain jane adorableness is all we behold here.   Doing what she does best….coloring!


I'm so sad it's starting to get hot again.  These two LIVE out back.  Vivian has been on a bubbles kick for about a month now, and Pearce is either in the sandbox, or playing cars on the side by the garden, or playing bubbles with Viv. We're going to have to whip out the ole sprinklers here soon.  I told Pearce to give Viv a kiss, and he strangled her neck and laid one on her.  I just love these guys!!!!

Easter 2014

This year, the Easter Bunny hid the kids Easter baskets all over the backyard.  Vivian's was in the first spot and she just parked it there for a while.  She got a princess bubble set, a bubble gun, 2 super big bottles of bubbles, candy, and her dress….(these pics are SOOC because I don't feel like photoshopping all of em)

 Then Pearcey looked around and spotted his and went a runnin!  His had a handsome suit, a monster truck, bubbles and candy.

 Boston ran to his right away with a little scream.  He had a big rocket with some engines, bubbles, a suit and some candy.
 Kam kinda knew where hers was while we were checking out Vivan's stuff, so she didn't' have to search.  She got a beautiful pink dress, a gift card to build a bear, some killer red floral boots and candy.

 (she's SO excited about the build a bear card…she's wanted to make one for years!)
 This year when I asked Jaden if he believed in the Easter Bunny, he said, "no, not really"…and I said, "oh sad, then he doesn't believe in you!".  haha.  And he quickly replied, "wait, wait, I thought you said Measter Smunny!  of course I believe in the Easter Bunny!".   I love him!  He got an awesome new suit, The Blind Side, a seat for his bike, and cadbury eggs…his and his mom's fav!

 The Easter Egg hunt begins!

and you KNOW I made them get in front of our gate for some pics before church. I love this group.  I hope they can all grow up to be amazing, happy, loving, compassionate, understanding people!  I really really am so glad i get to be with them forever!!!!

 Dorky Deacon!
 Stinkin Handsom Deacon!

 I seriously just CANNOT resist this face AT ALL!!!!!

The oldest to the youngest…

Last night I slept on the trampoline with my oldest.  It was the NICEST nice.  The temps were perfect, the sky was clear and full of stars and we both slept through the night.   At 5:30 this morning (when it started to sprinkle on us) Jase brought out my youngest…who came galloping over to me and snuggled into my sleeping back for about 30 minutes while we watched the clouds pass by and the birds "chirp" in the trees.  She helped me make the plans today, which are "toys", "color" "dora dora" and "eat".  I really like my bookends.   They're perfectly placed in their spot in our little family.

Nothing too exciting….thank goodness

Lately I've been noticing colors and textures in things and wanting to take pictures.  It's weird, I hope it passes.
 But fun family stuff…our garden is growing!  This picture was taken over a week ago….it's completey covered in green right now.  I think some watermelon and cantaloupe seeds got spread throughout the whole thing, but the corn, tomatoes and squash are doing well through it all.   We all love watering it!

 And this guy.  How have I not written about him and his love of wheels.  It can be ANYTHING with wheels…tractors, trains, cars, trucks, motosacycle as he calls them.  I thought it was a phase like it was with my older boys, but it's been over 2 years and it's STILL his thing, so he's got quite the collection….
