Giddy Up Little Doggy!!

So, this was the first time Cash ever did this and I'm so glad I got it on camera. I'm also so glad Winnie is a very patient, laid-back dog. Winnie puts up with a lot between Gertie biting her tail all day long and now, Cash trying to ride her like a horse. Apparently the boots just bring out Cash's inner cowboy.

Are you guys about sick of all the videos I've been posting lately?

Safety First!

Spence has been talking for some time about wanting to get some bikes, so I decided to get him(and me, too!) one for his birthday. Here are a couple of pics I took before our evening ride the other night. How adorable is my little man in his helmet? I mean really....does it get any cutier =D


Good Times at the Lake!

My mom and dad came up on Monday and we took their boat out to Arcadia for a few hours. It was Cash's first time to actually swim in a lake and I don't think he liked it as much as swimming in a pool, but I can't say they I don't blame him =D


The wind in their hair!


Time for some tubing action! I was a bit surprised that he actually liked it.

Here's my Baywatch Hunk =D

A Few Fun Videos!!

I've captured a few funny moments on video that I thought I better get posted before I completely forget about them. Hope you enjoy!

This first video I'm naming "Block Party in the Hood." Being that our house is 70 years old, most of our windows do not open. So, on cool nights we will prop open the front door to let the breeze in. Well, a couple weeks ago, Cash decided to meet up with a few of friends and party on the front porch. They had a pretty good time, I think :)

This next video was from this weekend. We went to Woodward to celebrate Riley Ann's 3rd birthday. We stayed at the Holiday Inn and spent most of our time at the pool. My little man is quite fearless when it comes to being in the water. Good thing and a bad thing. Gotta keep an extra close eye on him. He goes under water all by himself, jumps off the edge whether your looking or not but I think his favorite thing to do is walk down the slight slope from the shallow end into the deep end. He just keeps walking until he is completely under water. I think we're gonna have lots of fun this summer at Nana "T" and Pop Pop's pool. I'm calling this video "Sink or Swim."

These next videos are a series of 3. As some of you may have picked up on from my blog or my sisters blogs, Nate is not a big fan of Cash's. Well, they spent the whole weekend together in pretty close quarters and I think it was a good thing. Nater Tater only had a few melt downs and by the end of the weekend he was even letting Cash touch him!!! I'm not sure what happened between these two to make Nate this way towards Cash but I think he might be out growing it......maybe :) I hope so.

This first video is titled "I Love You, I Hate You.....wait, I Love You......nope, Still Hate You!"

video

This video is called "Hold Me Back, Nana.....You Better Hold Me Back!!!"

And lastly I leave you with "Listen Buddy, I'm Still Bigger Than You!!"

Wordless Wednesday - With A Few Words :)

So, I know it's "Wordless Wednesday" but I wanted to post the progress on the house painting and some of the pics I wanted to explain. I'll keep the words to a minimum though :)

Here's the before.

Here I am slaving away.

Sorry ladies...he's taken :)

My favorite part of the fix-up might be the new jewelry that we got to put on the house. I love these lights!!

Drum Roll, please........................
















Here's the semi-finished project!!! We still need to do the guttering at the top, the other peak and the decorative air vent thingy in that peak. We need a higher ladder before we can go any further. I'm not sure the picture does it much justice :( I looks so good in person!! We've gotten lots of compliments from passer-bys so I'm very pleased!! It's a whole new house!! I might just be able to tolerate living it a little bit longer :) I use to not be too big of a fan of the brick color but now that we've changed the paint color around it, I like it. Funny how that happens. Well, what do you guys think so far?

I Say Cute, You Say Creepy.

This clown doll was mine when I was little and now Cash has grown a fondness for him. He looks a little scary but he was one of my favs growing up =D He's been tucked away in Cash's toy box with some other dolls that I didn't think Cash would have much of a liking for but he was drawn to "BoBo." Probably because he called out Cashion's name in the middle of the night =D I apologize if any of you have problems sleeping at night after seeing the picture of BoBo. But, Cash and I love him!! Cash can even say his name! One of like 5 words he says now. His getting better at picking up on words so I think he'll have a lot to say before long. And maybe the next time you see BoBo, he'll be clothed. I'm not sure what happened to his clothes but I've got my eye on an outfit on ebay.

Boys Will Be Boys!

Three guesses as to what happens next.....

Well.....were you right :)

So, Cash got into that muddy mess while I was outside painting today. We are slowly making progress on the painting. This rainy weather hasn't helped much. But Cash is going to stay the weekend with his grandparents so we're hoping to get it all done. Until I can show you pics of the finished project, I'll leave you with just a taste.

Well, what do you think?

Wordless Wednesday - Somebody Got a Haircut!

A fellow blogger that I follow does this so I thought I would join in the fun and do the same. Basically, Wednesdays will just be a picture post =D So, with the exception of the explaination, I now leave you with "Wordless Wednesday."

Progress, Folks!!

Well, Mandy G., the work on our house painting got started this weekend and you said to let you know who we found to paint for us. Well, his name is Cashion Laird. He's pretty good at what he does if you don't mind the occassional paint splatter in your flower beds or sidewalks. He has a tendency to forget that he is suppose to paint only the house and might turn to repainting your deck or window screens =O But never fear, he does eventually get back on track! He takes a lot of breaks that range from some time on his Big Wheel to perfecting his golf swing =) And his choice of wardrobe is a little questionable, too. Guess his company couldn't afford the standard white overalls. All-in-all he turned in a pretty productive day on the job site, but I'm not sure I'm ready to refer him to friends just yet. Let's see how he finishes the job =)
