Day 103 Turtles & Trundles

It was a sad day.  We took Hannalee's baby bed/toddler bed completely out of her room.  I cried when I went into the garage and saw it.  :(    We've had a daybed with a trundle under it in the guest room/office.  I'm trying to claim it as more of an office/scrapbook room....therefore, Hannalee gets a big girl trundle bed now in her room.  Pics of that later!

And Tim the turtle....  you know from the song...
"I had a tiny turtle, his name was Tiny Tim.
I put him in the bathtub, to see if he could swim.
He drank up all the water. Gulp, Gulp, Gulp.
He ate up all the soap. Yum, Yum, Yum.
And now he's in my bed with bubbles in his throat. POP! POP!  POP!"

He played in our yard for only a bit.  He was gone when we got home from church.

Genesis 1:28 NIV

God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground."

Day 102 Ridin' the Waves

Exodus 23:25 NIV

Worship the LORD your God, and his blessing will be on your food and water
I will take away sickness from among you...

The boys have had so much fun being together at VBS this week!!  
Carson got to come home one day after VBS And they all three played in the water
for three hours straight!!!!! They were worn out!!!

Thanks for coming over Carson!! 

JJ "riding a bull!"  :)  

 Giddy up!!  

Hannalee held them at bay with the water hose!

Day 101 Mary, Mary Quite Contrary!!

We hit the sale and the mother load today!! One of the garden centers was closing for the season today.  EVERYTHING was 75% off!!!  We bought.  Then bought some more.  Then even one more thing, or two, we dind't think we needed or wanted. But $7 for a huge potted shrub and the same for a HUGE potted fern.....and I never knew I would be so excited about a pink geranium.  The kids picked out "the mosquito" plants....cintronella geraniums!!! They loved them.  Sure!! I put them on the table in the backyard.  Along with my new fern!! Who knew??! :)  And finally got flowers put in the HUGE pot I got for Mother's Day!! WOOT!!  It was a beautiful day to be outside...the kids were filthy and we turned on the sprinklers...we had a great time!!

Day 100 Found in the DRYER!!

Sooooo....I was doing laundry one morning....only had the washer going...not the dryer.  Yet.  Had folded clothes.  Put clothes on to wash.  Hung clothes up.  Took clothes out of the room.  Had been in and out for a couple of hours.  THEN!!!!  I pulled the vent get the fuzzies out....peeled it all off and  threw it away and the put it back in.  Then it happened...I heard....well.... I didn't know what in the world I heard.  I yelled for Dusty to COME HERE!!! COME HERE!!!!  What in the world is that??  I thought something was going to JUMP OUT AT ME from inside the dryer.  But we could hear wasn't in the was the vent hose...inside our house!! Dusty ran outside, pulled the vent cover off and out popped the and white, fuzzy and scared kitty!!!  He was sooo cute.

We have noooo clue how he got in there....other than literally just crawled up it!!  I'm sooo glad I hadn't started the dryer yet.  He might have gotten out...and maybe not...and oh stars!! Can't even begin to imagine!!!!!!

We named him BOUNCE.  Get it...dryer...Bounce!!:)  Bounce ate a hotdog and drank (mostly played in) a little water.  We took him to visit his nana and papa.  Got him a little pet taxi to stay while we were gone later that day.  And now...the best part of the story.....He lives in Jerry Joe's barn!!!!!  With 4 pigs!! That kitten has it made.  Clean barn.  Company to play with and a water cooler to be cool by!!  Can't beat that.

Of course JJ and Hannalee thought it was the best thing we found since Choco the dog!! Hannalee carried that kitty around all day like a rag doll.  My mom calls her "Miss Vet!"  She loves any animal.  She's a little rough with them, but she LOVES them!!!!  We are all happy that  Bounce was rescued from our dryer vent hose and has a new home. :)

2 Samuel 22:20 NIV

He brought me out into a spacious place; 
he rescued me because he delighted in me.

Day 99 Water Park!!

As we waited a day on wheat harvest we got to go to the new water park/splash pad in Weatherford!  It was so much fun!!! No pool.  No slides.  Just fountains and buckets that splash and dump on surprise!! And even's FREE!!  We loved it!!!

Genesis 26:32 NIV

That day Isaac's servants came and told him about the well they had dug. They said, "We've found water!"


JJ has waited ALL WINTER.  ALL SPRING.  And finally...the worst wheat harvest in history is here!  Shew!!  Glad its here and my sweet daddy is glad its over and hopes its never that bad again!!

JJ had big plans for this year....he wanted to get up early and go with him.  But really....his BIG idea was that he wanted to work ALL NIGHT.  In the dark.  He even said he wanted to sleep on the combine and then eat breakfast there.  Out in the field!! He had such big ideas and big plans!! I love him!! If he's not a farmer when we grows up we'll ALL be verysurprised!!  

JJ and Hannalee got to ride in the big wheat truck and go into town to dump at the Co-op!!!  No seat belts. No carseats.  Just plumb dumb hanging on like we did as kids!! :)

Getting to ride like "a big girl" in Papa John's farm truck!

Wheat truck!! What hired hands you have papa!! :) 

Exodus 29:2 NIV

And from fine wheat flour, without yeast, make bread, and cakes mixed with oil, and wafers spread with oil.

I don't know how skillfully anyone was, but the 
parents did a great job shouting for joy! ;)  
Good Job, JJ Reed!!! 

Day 95 Hannalee's First Day of Gymnastics

2 Samuel 22:30 NCV

With your help I can attack an army. 
With God's help I can jump over a wall.

She loved it!! She was strong and did a very good job!!!! 

Day 94 Rolly Pollies

Genesis 1:24 NIV

And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock,creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so.

We LOVE rolly pollies!! 

Day 93 Farmin' with Papa Jerry

JJ AND Hannlee both got to go to the Leedey farm with Papa Jerry.  They love it.  JJ really loves that they stop at the truck stop and buy candy! That's the highlight for him.  Hannalee loves the cows!!

After that they got to play in the water and MUD next door with Kristi and Aiden.  This is the clean picture....before the mud.  I don't have a mud picture...but both kids would look like they have brown freckles and brownie mix on them.
