LOTS of eyes

Lily has a HUGE collection of sunglasses.... Ty even keeps his in her collection..... but we can never find a pair when they really need them. Go figure.... however they have no trouble finding them for times like this... hee hee

Here is the replay....
I hear the littles giggling like crazy
I walk into the kitchen (location of such giggling)
Me... you guys are so silly and then I started giggling when I saw them loaded up with sunglasses
Lily....aren't we silly goofballs mom?
Me... OH YES you are.... and you are cute little goofballs
Lily...thanks mom and we can see so well with all of these eyes
Ty....LOTTA LOTTA eyes momma want to take our picture don't you?
Ty...take a picture momma of LOTTA LOTTA eyes
Lily...get your camera quick because we are busy, busy

I take several pictures

Littles (in unison).... we want to see our silly pictures.....

Their reaction to the pictures......

Lily... Ty we are so silly
Ty... We are so silly LIL
They run off giggling and jumping around.... glasses flying everywhere....

Twirly Whirly Fliers

I LOVE this picture.....
I took this not long after we moved into our new house. The littles and I were walking in the field behind our house (which lucky for us belongs to Grandma & Grandpa). Ty wasn't feeling so hot and while he wanted to be outside he wanted no part of pictures. So Lily ran around what she called our new backyard and played with these twirly whirly fliers....

Twirly whirlies fliers.... she heard that on the show Ni Hao Kai Lan)

She had so much fun twirling them over and over...

SOOOOOO proud of her new backyard and the twirly whirlies......

As usual I am behind in posting (these pictures above are 2 months old). More posts and pictures are on the way. I have been snapping away as always. BUT..... my computer needed some photo sorting and space needed to be made for the 1000's of pictures that get added each month.

That is how we feel....

We have been in our new home and new community for 2 months now. It is hard to believe that 2 months have passed.

Everyone has been so nice to us and made us feel so welcome. Friends brought us dinner, friends invited us to dinner, neighbors brought us welcome gifts, and family has done so much for us.

We all LOVE our new home!!!

The ? we get the most... Are you adjusting to living in here/in the country?
WE are! It is a big change but we REALLY like it.
Of course we miss family, friends, and the church that we attended.
We miss being close to everything.... like Target... we use to live 15 minutes from Target and now it is almost 40 minutes. We also miss the MANY restaurants that we were close to. It is probably for the best that we aren't as close to so many restaurants.

We are enjoying finding and trying new places.
We found many indoor play places (that are fantastic). We found the many outdoor play parks as well (also fantastic). In fact the play areas around here are better and the littles couldn't be happier about that.
I take the littles to story hour each week... which is held at a local church. Story hour includes a story (of course), snack, and craft. Then the kids all stay to play in the indoor play area. The littles both LOVE this and it has been a great way for me to meet other moms.

We all love that we have LOTS of space in our yard and behind our house. The littles love zipping all over the place in their Gator. They love riding their bikes in the flat driveway (our previous driveway was very steep). Ty is enjoying his new big boy bike (he was riding Lily's) and they both have roller skates now..... LOOK OUT.

We LOVE all of the trees in our yard. I can only imagine all the leaves in the fall..... Ty's eyes lit up when I mentioned that. Hee hee

We are just really happy here and while there are days when we miss the old we are sure enjoying life in the new.

Sunny days are here again

FINALLY.... winter is over and spring might actually be here.

The littles are SOOOO happy to get outside again.....ME TOO!

I don't know what it is about this picture but I LOVE it.... all the pretty colors... the fact that it is warm enough to enjoy sidewalk chalk again.... the littles think it is so much fun..What's not to love?

Lily hauling her pink stroller in the Gator...
If you ask Ty he will tell you it is Ty's Gator...
On this particular day Lily loaded it up with girlie stuff and took off..... She is a much better driver than Ty.... those are her words by the way.
Ty decided this would be a good time to ride all of the bikes..... some of which you can't see....
he placed them in the path of Lily and the Gator...
