Look who made it back to us this week! It is Aunt Cindy (Marine Mom)!! We missed her!
Ok, if you are ever talking to my Mom in the evening and she blurts out something strange, please do not be alarmed. She is probably watching Wheel of Fortune. That is probably her very favorite game (besides Scrabble with me at the beach ;) and I don't think she misses it much. I was getting a tutorial from her this week about blogging and she, completely out of the blue, said "debit card". Of course, I said "huh?". Then, before she could splain herself, I said "Wheel of Fortune?" and she said "yep". She is so cute.
Moving on... Austin had to do a project at school that involved him (and me) making something useful out of a recyclable object. They called it "Trash to Treasure". We actually had fun doing this project, because to be honest, they are not all fun.Here is the project.
Well, I heard a bird chirp the other morning early, before we let the dogs out, and look what I saw!
How about that?! It was the prettiest Red Bird! I thought of PawPaw Howell. He loved to "Bird Watch". He was moving alot and I did not put my camera on action, so it is a bit blurry (or maybe my windows are dirty..hmmm). Hopefully you can click on it and see it better enlarged. Thanks, Mom, for that tutorial! He is the first bird I have seen on our project, which by the way, WE got a 100! Hooray for US, I mean, Austin. ;)
I let the kids, and Munson the American Bulldog, play in the sprinklers alot. Here are some pics from that.
Avery had a lot of fun this evening! She was drenched!
And above is BB the English Bulldog not getting anywhere near the sprinklers! That would require running around and as you can see, she is not exactly fit. She tends to guard her food when you get anywhere near her. Are you thinking maybe she needs to stop doing that? Hey, I just had an epiphany! If you are struggling a bit with weight, maybe you should start sharing your food more! Think of BB the Bulldog for motivation! Her real name is Big Bertha! We nailed that one, didn't we?!
And here is one of those "View from a child's world" stories. We had a pit bull come into our yard one day and fight with BB (above). Derek not only ran him off, but also went looking for him :0 It really bothered us that a pit bull was running loose around here and our dogs are out all day.
A week or so later, Alex came to me and told me that she was afraid that a pimple was going to come. Of course, I am thinking "Girl, you have a long time before you have to worry about pimples!". Well, I asked her why she was worried about pimples at such and young age and she said "because they come and fight with BB!" ....ohh! Pimple...Pit Bull! Cute, huh?
After Autumn, who slept in our bed with us until she was 4, the other three Parrish children have slept in their cribs until they climbed out. Avery is still in hers at 3 because she likes it, but because of that, she wears a pullup at night. Below is Avery the other night so proud she got herself ready for bed! What's wrong with this picture?
Well, she tried!
Friday is my Wonderful Husband and Father of the four Parrish Children's Birthday! He will be 35! I am 6 months older than he is and he never lets me forget that, so for 6 months of every year, we are actually the same number age! Happy Birthday Honey!
Keep eating healthy foods and walking around with those ankle weights so you will live a long and healthy life.
And get plenty of rest!
By the way, alot of this blog was done on Saturday, the day after my first post! I was afraid I would not have enough to talk about. I do! This is fun! I am actually taking more pictures (not as many of the older two children because they are on the go). Suzanne, BLOG! Even once a week is a great start! You are so witty, just like Kelly. Anna, BLOG! It is a great way to keep us distant relatives up to date on what those sweet little girls are doing! Love you all.
Until Next Time....
