Hey all! Happy Easter? How did you spend your easter? After the morning service at church, came home ate some pancakes, and after glancing out the kitchen window saw that the Easter bunny had paid a visit outside. Kids all grabbed their baskets and the hunt ensued.
Played on the swings for a while until Austin decided he needed to break his nose once more – another holiday another fracture 🙂
Happy Easter!
Grandad came over for a visit and we all took off to Oak Hollow lake for a lakeside barbeque and to do some fishing.
Happy Easter!
Didn’t really catch anything, except for a little sunfish that somehow managed to get snagged on a hook. Was fun though!
No traditional Ham and scalloped potatoes here – hot dogs over charcoal for us!!
Hope everyone had a good easter.

Until next time…..

To the rock garden silly!! Been a busy weekend so far. Went to Lowe’s yesterday to pick up some more flowers and plants for the rock garden on the back hill, came home with a pond & waterfall instead. Thank you Aunt Gail & Uncle Tom for the inspiration!

Spent Thursday night and Friday puting in raised beds and planting 75 strawberries; friday project used the rest of the truckload of dirt to map out where the vegetable garden is going.
Today’s our “day off” from working so hard, we’re all too sore to dig any more; gonna go fishing.
Happy Easter everyone!

Until next time…..

Look Ma – No Tooth!!

Look Ma – No Tooth!!

Another milestone – sorta…
Taya and the kids were outside enjoying the beautiful weather today. Ever helpful Austin attempted to open a play-doh container for his brother…with his teeth. After spitting out what he thought was a lump of play-doh into the driveway, he went to lick his lips, and stuck his tongue in the hole where his lower front tooth used to be!
Panic ensued, and after a quick call to the dentist who said “come on in” the whole gang was tossed into the van, and I met them at the dentist’s office. I brought the kids to work with me while Taya took poor panic-stricken Austin in to see the dentist. About half an hour later Taya called to say all was well. Turns out that Austin’s tooth was actually loose, and the play-doh lid gave it a little help in popping out. The dentist said it looked as if the tooth was removed by a surgeon (future career for Austin – YIKES!) and everything was fine. He’s got a couple other loose teeth, and Ian has 1 loose tooth.
The only tragedy is; our kid’s first lost tooth is normally something you kinda keep as a treasure, but we can’t find it! It’s somewhere out in the gravel driveway, or out in the grass or something. Oh well, I guess there’ll be others. And we’ll always have the story to tell 🙂
Austin’s fine now, he’s impressed with the ability to stick a straw in the gap and drink thru it, and I get to show him how to make a water fountain thru the hole tomorrow. Ahh, the joys of being a Dad 🙂

Gappy Smile

Until next time…..
