My Alex. He calls me his Trish. I belong to him now.  I hope the husband doesn't mind. Love love love Alex!




Welcome Fall. Winter? Take your time sweetie. Spring, you're alright by me. Summer? We had a great love affair and I can't wait to do it again!!!


She's having a stellar hair day I think!

I don't think she liked riding the pony one. little. bit. Nope, not at all.
I thought for sure this one would be a screamer and the little stinkpot jones surprises me and laughs.  Also? She loves touching the hairs. She did this with the goats last weekend too. Textures people. Textures.


Our friend Alex spent the afternoon with us recently. His mama is going to have a sister or brother for him in April. He would like a sister, thank you very much. My girls were loving on him so much. 

Something went wrong in the communication process. Me thinks the 17mo old doesn't understand the 3yr old 



My niece, Bananas. Enjoy the nom nom factor. She'll giggle for you.....

I tell them that life is too short to be fighting this way. Especially over who sits in the end seat on the couch. There are two ends people. 
Getting them to understand that someday all they'll have is each other is so hard. They get that we're all going to die someday but they don't get that when Mama and Daddy are gone? They have each other. I mean yes, they have cousins and aunts and uncles and all that good stuff but still. Life is too short.
When September 11 happened, the husband and I had just moved in together. We'd been dating for 7 months and were planning our wedding for the following summer. He snores so I was sleeping in the recliner in the living room. He went to work. I slept in. Ahh, I miss those days. Darn kids.
