We live on 6 acres and there is tons to do as long as you don't get to hot. The kids end up in their bathing suits most of the time. Here they are on the trampoline they got from grandma and grandpa for Christmas.

We were given four baby bunnies right after we moved into our new house. They were so cute. Several have passed on and now we only have one left. Her name is dust bunny. I was totally impressed with Elisabeth's choice of names. I mean really impressed until I realized that my eight year old knows what a dust bunny is. That means this momma is not a house keeper! I know I admit it. Cleaning is for the birds (or the bunnies)!
I'm on a roll. ok I wrote all these posts at the same time and now I'm just posting them one a day. What can I say...... It's the best I can do. :)This is a terrible picture but the only one I have of our family on Easter. But here you go, the most current picture of what our little family looks like.
Here's a quick pet update. This is Jett. Look how big he is. He is an awesome dog. Very calm and sweet. He is very obedient and always willing to please.
The puppies are now a year old.stubborn but not bad. She is also a fabulous hunter. She has brought us several animals, including a couple of bunnies and birds. Very proud of herself. Me. Not so proud. One of the bunnies was still alive!
I can't believe our cute tiny little puppies from last summer are full grown. Wow! Time has flown. I must say, I highly recommend buying two dogs at once. It has been one of the best dog purchasing experiences we have ever had. They completely keep each other company and so we didn't have the destruction that we had with other lab puppies. Not to mention, my children love them to death and they get tons of attention.
....and Sara, too!!!
David gave the boys camo Aggie hats for being in the wedding. Here they are putting them on their heads without messing up their hair.
At the wedding, there was a beautiful courtyard. It was where the reception was. In the courtyard was a large bell. They boys thought it was awesome to ring. Our ears did not think it was so awesome.
Can you believe it?!?!?! I'm blogging! Well, this spring has been a doozie. We moved. I don't move well. My parents still live in the house they bought just before I was born. So all the times I have moved have been with Josh. This lack of experience does not make for easy moving. However, we are settling in and the house is becoming a home. We bought an old 1934 farm house. That was added onto in the 50's. It has such character. The previous owner had made done the major updates but we still had lots of panting and decorating to do. The house is on six acres and we have been having loads of fun on the land. The land has come with lots of work, though.
But enough about that, this post is about this.
The kids and Josh were asked to be in a friend of ours wedding this past weekend. The were so precious! I can't believe how extremely blessed I am. It was so fun to them all dressed up. I still can't believe just how big they have become.
This is Elisabeth Anne. She is 8. Really 8?!?! Wow, where has the time gone?
