Here are the pictures you have been waiting for. Mom and I had a conversation some time back about showing the 'real' side of things. I will try to without blushing or hiding my head in shame. Some of you know I just finished a three-week camp-out in our barn while our double wide mobile home was being moved onto our land. We had a camper, but discovered it to be a bit squished for our all-arms-and-legs family. Well, you fit 5 very gangling creatures in a RV for 21 days. So, Shawn and I slept in the loft of the barn and Kyri slept in the hay in a tent while the boys took opposite ends of the camper. Amid hords of flies and horses munching hay mere feet away, and the "honey pot" behind a tree, I survived! Some of my friends here, thought how romantic it was to sleep out under the stars, or almost, let me be quick to put that notion out of you head...Okay, I've stalled long enough, brace yourself.....
The Storage Unit
The Hay Bedroom
The Master Bedroom
P. S. I do miss all the stars at night, and the hoot owls and the coyotes and...Oh, never mind....
Now tell me the truth, we wives and mothers have daily irritations, right?
Here are a few of mine. Can I whine for a minute?
Shallen and his daily cup of coffee. Of course, he leaves his tools behind and usually a little dirty.
And then there is Kelton...his bed is always either full or empty, LOL...
but mostly it is always messy.
Anyone who knows me and my daughter, know we don't see eye to eye on fashion.
Kyri leaves theses everywhere and wears them with anything that remotely matches.
But it's not just the kids, Shawnigans has a bad habit of throwing his towel over the door.
It wouldn't be so bad except he forgets to take it back into the bathroom, so if I don't collect for laundry, we will wind up with a collection in our bedroom.
Then, there's me! I suppose I have my habits as well.
Now for the other side of the coin, if any of the family ceased to exist who would make the coffee every morning, or mess up the beds and leave Hi-Tops around, or even the menagerie of towels in my room. And, would they miss the tea bag every morning?
I guess my musings have brought me to this conclusion, I am blessed to have occupant in my house called...Family!
Do you remember those kids magazines where they showed only a part of something and then made you guess what it was? That is what these pictures remind me of...
So guess away!!!
Actually, I'll give you a hint! We butchered our roosters...
This is my son's reenactment of his father's antics. Yes, it is a rooster foot! When he was a boy, Shawn gave his own mother quite a fright by pulling the tendon and making it open and close. Kelton and Kyri were intrigued by that whole thought. No, I wasn't scared and I didn't scream. I'm no fun. So Kyri grabbed a camera and took these of Kelt hiding behind the table.
Anyway, I now have 3 of the 5 too many roosters, in the freezer. Later...
