Isabelle and Lucy are really good pals as you can see. They are often sitting together on the couch or laying down near a register (cool air!) together. This dog has really been a good puppy for our family. She is getting more rambunctious though on a daily basis. Sometimes I wish puppies skipped the puppy stage and went straight to ten years old.

A couple hours a week I scan hundreds of resumes online and contact people to see if they might be interested in becoming an insurance agent. Sometimes I just have to shake my head at the things people put on their resumes. It's pretty common to see people list Facebook and Twitter as their top skills. This resume however (see last point) really takes the cake.

Bob sent me this picture Wednesday night. If you look closely, you'll see deer in our field. We are loving the wildlife we see on a daily basis.

One way we see our son growing is that he's getting better at defending himself against food stealers. Shortly after I took this picture, Bobby hauled off and smacked her in the face. After I stopped laughing, I got after him. He then started laughing.

Bellie was resourceful and used a placemat as a blanket for her doll.

Working from home can be messy. The kids weren't ready for naptime yet I guess, so while they played with their toys I got an hour of work done. Then I realized the toys were really the bagels I had on the kitchen counter.

Sometimes I have three kids.

A couple times this week the babies have climbed into my lap and fallen asleep on their own. They're so sweet.

Sometimes they're troublemakers, too. Bellie has done pretty well with sharing though lately. If only she didn't share the dog food with her brother.

I love having my chalkboard. It's helps in reminding me to memorize God's Word.

Sink bath for little buddy!

Look who can get into the refrigerator herself and choose salami to eat and then eat it on the couch while sitting on the curtain that the dog keeps pulling off the window.

Niagara Falls-Part Two

Monday morning we walked to a nearby restaurant for breakfast.

He may look like he's smiling, but he really was being fussy and loud!

After breakfast we took another walk to see the falls.

Little dude was trying to go to sleep, so we had to do what we could to keep him awake until nap time. I had an appointment to get a manicure during their nap time!

After nap time, we decided to pack a lunch and have a picnic by the falls. I have to say this may have been my favorite part of the trip!

I kept thinking how blessed I am because when I looked to the left there were beautiful waterfalls and when I looked to the right there was my husband playing with my little girl!

We just had to get some ice cream!

......and fudge!!

Niagara Falls-Part One

After church Sunday, Bob and I and the babies headed out on a spontaneous trip to Niagara Falls in Canada! Although it was alot of work, we still managed to enjoy our time together as a family!

Loved seeing these two cool cats on our way to church.

We survived the car ride by pumping them full of cookies food!

We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton (on the left). It was a very nice place to stay and only a block away from the falls.

View from our room..

It seemed like everything was built on a hill. I could barely carry myself up there, let alone push a couple kids, so I was grateful for my strong dude!

Part of our package deal included a delicious dinner at Ruth's Chris steakhouse! It may have been a bit hectic with our extremely tired kids!
