Missourah-Style Hydraulics

See kids, even way out here in the boondocks we can still hop!


Katie had me braid her hair after her shower last night. This morning we took the braids out and her head exploded! (She informed me she isn't used to having fluffy hair.)


For many years I have wished for a gnome for my garden but I just couldn't seem to get one of the little buggers to move in. For years Jason has had to listen to me lament my un-gnome-iness. I was finally beginning to accept the idea I may never have a garden gnome in my life.
Then one day last week, in the late afternoon, my doorbell rang. I opened the door and glanced out, but nobody was there. I looked down and standing on the doorstep was the coolest gnome ever! I caught a glimpse of movement and noticed Jason hiding around the corner, laughing.

The cool gnome has moved onto our porch and I have named him Gee. He's my Gee gnome!
Yep, you got it, pronounced jee-nome. :)
I was laughing with the kids about my Gee gnome as I took them to school the next morning. That afternoon Katie returned home all excited to tell me that very day in science they had discussed DNA and genomes! Can you imagine the look on her teacher's face when Katie told her that her mama keeps her Gee gnome on the front porch?
These poor kids don't stand a chance, do they!

Goin' Super Sonic

We're such a tight-knit family that one kid can't do anything without all the other kids getting involved. Do you suppose this could be why each kid wishes they were an only child?
Nothing like family love...
and support...

...and competition!


I found these really cool petunias at the greenhouse this weekend. I've never seen this color combination before.


My new mailbox Jason painted for me! It matches my cows! :)
