Dairy is the culprit.

After about a week of strictly dairy free I cheated. My sister’s birthday cake on Sunday night had icing made with milk. I also ate a few cookies made with milk that Tyler brought home, and some artificially flavored popcorn that had whey at the bottom of the ingredient list. Yeah, fail. Shush. I felt fine on Monday morning. Then Monday night I had cramps all night long and a horrible back ache. My nose wouldn’t stop running, which could be...

Santa came! 0

Christmas Day Photos!

Walking in the living room to see that Santa had arrived… It may look like he didn’t bring much, but Rosie and Ada got iPad minis from us. Small in size, big in dollars. Dimple! Rosie specifically requested a black newborn doll from Santa Claus. I took everything out of the packages and put it into storage tubs before wrapping it so that I wouldn’t have to fool with ripping stuff out of packages on Christmas morning. The clean up was...

Gingerbread House Decorating!

I never got a chance to post pictures of the kids decorating their gingerbread house a week or so ago. That’s Ada’s special stuffed animal, Birdy. Henry’s hair constantly looks like this in the back. When you get it wet it curls, but it never stays even with gel. I took three pictures in a row, and I realized later in one picture Ada is licking the gingerbread house! This was before he learned to break out of baby jail. It...

Fun Times.

Saturday was family day for Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky. They buy out King’s Island, an amusement park in Ohio, for the entire day. Everything is free–tickets for everyone on your health insurance plan or an equivalent number of guests, parking, and unlimited drinks. Tyler and Rosie go every year, but this was the first year Ada has been. It was Henry’s first year too, of course. Tyler’s parents also came along and brought my BIL’s daughter Lauren. Rosie and Ada adore...

Beach, Part Two.

Check this out! This is a fossilized sea urchin. It’s so old that it lived at the same time as the dinosaurs! I know this because I posted it on a fossil hunter forum. They told me its scientific name and that it lived in the late mesozoic era. (I think that’s what they said, too lazy to look back at the moment.) Rosie found it in the ocean because she tripped and fell in a wave, then it hit her...

Beach!

Last week was spent at the beach. It was good. We went to Holden Beach, NC. It’s about an hour from the popular and commercial Myrtle Beach area. Holden Beach is actually an island. It’s quiet and sleepy. When we arrived on Labor Day weekend there were a few small crowds, but as the week started everyone left and there was hardly another person around. Rosie and Ada met several friends on the beach. One little girl Rebecca, really hit it...

Whirlwind.

My baby! Oh how I do love him so! Cannot get enough. Oh yeah, these other kids of mine are pretty fun too… “Why are you hanging upside down off the earth like a bat?” Rosie took this one of the Easter Bunny, and the ones with me in them too. Go home Easter Bunny, you’re drunk! The edge of my front porch. The girls like to do school work out there. I’m so busy I just don’t know how to...

Somethings Happy.

Here are some happy pictures from yesterday and today. These were from a walk around the block yesterday afternoon. These are from the cemetery today. It’s beautiful this time of year, despite being a cemetery. My mom took the pictures with me in them. I laughed so hard when I saw Henry’s face here. “Dada! That’s my Mama. What are you doing to her!” These are just funny. This is what my family looks like at any given moment, basically. There are quite...

Goat Milking & Pictures from the beginning of December. 1

Goat Milking & Pictures from the beginning of December.

I’m goat sitting for my friend while her family is on vacation. She lives about 20 minutes away from me, which means out here she’s sort of my neighbor. It takes 15 minutes just to get up out of the area where I live to go anywhere. She has 16 goats. I’m milking one goat twice daily, and another goat is due to give birth any second! Her udder filled with milk a few days ago, which is a sign labor...

Ada’s First Hair Cut, The End of October, & Other Pictures.

Here are some pictures from recently. I can’t remember which ones I’ve posted before. I think this was the week before Halloween: Kitten is obsessed with the faucet in the bathroom. Henry dressed in cute clothes. I feel like he’s so much bigger than this now, even though it was just a few weeks ago! And you can see his torticollis here. His head was stuck in that position. Thank goodness that’s fixed mostly. This was the Saturday morning before Halloween....
