When it’s been pouring rain for four days…

You take the first opportunity for pizza on the porch when the sun wakes up! Sure it may be a little chilly, but that is why we have more blankets than we really need!

A few weeks ago I made homemade pizza on what happened to be a beautiful evening so we ate on the porch. Now it is a thing. I kind of like it! Plus it breaks the tedium of pb&j!

So excited to see sun! The flooding has been worse but water levels are high and with more forecasted we’re going to take advantage of this break while we can!

Love, Malea Lyn and KM

Everyone tells me I should be thrilled…

She started crawling Monday. The world as we know it is over. It is hard to be upset though, look at how happy she is!

image

They are both very happy girls! (But that is because the eldest has NO idea what she is in for!)

Love, Malea Lyn and the girls!

Oh Help.

I am not ready for this. We just got her in the crib!I don’t want to lower it already! And she is so close to figuring out crawling. I am NOT ready!

Happy Easter!

The weather held and we had a beautiful Easter Sunday! Mom of the year here, I failed to get a picture of the girls together in their Easter dresses.

image

Or for that matter, together! These were their backup outfits and after the main event festivities.

She didn’t miss an opportunity to let her great uncle know he needed to catch one more fish!

image

Even though she wouldn’t touch it!

Good day!

Love, Malea Lyn and the girls!

Happy Birthday to Dear Little Miss Crabby Pants!

March 30, 2017

Please imagine that this was posted last Wednesday. I had it all set to go and it vanished. I assumed that WordPress ate it. Then I opened the app tonight to make a new post and here it is. Go figure.

Even though she was not feeling it this morning, my baby girl, as of 8:42 this morning, is 3 years old!

This photo was actually taken about a month ago now, since Katie was born we have taken pictures of her with the daffodils in Mineral (her great grandmother planted these). Three years ago they first bloomed in April. This year in February!

(The mom-fail story of this photograph is me taking a step back and looking where I was going only to have Katie say, “look mom! Liz Beth is falling!” Down into the muddy ditch, smiling most of the way! Not surprisingly that ended the photo shoot!)

Have a beautiful day!

Love, Malea Lyn and the girls

Big Girl Bed!

March 19, 2017

image

We have officially transitioned to the new twin bed we got from Katie’s great aunt and uncle! We’ll see how tonight goes- but at the time of this picture she was excited about it!

image

This past week has been pretty rough emotionally with the loss of a dear friend and the wife of one of our best volunteers, so here is a gratuitous shot of the baby!

Update: when I took the above picture she didn’t want any of her stuffed animals. Evidently she changed her mind as they are all lined up around her!

Love, Malea Lyn and the girls

Getting SO Big!

Who can believe she’s 6 months old? I will say that she is pleased as punch that she can sit up and blow raspberries!

image

Possibly even nuttier is we’ll be celebrating Katie’s 3rd birthday in under 2 weeks! We ventured out to the trestle last week and had to explore the little free library offerings!

Love, Malea Lyn and the girls
