July so far

The reality of me having a baby in 2 weeks has finally hit.  I think it should've hit sooner, but it didn't, so now I'm scrambling.  My list of things to do before it gets here is getting LONGER instead of shorter, and for some reason I'm blogging when both of my kids are asleep. But, I'd sure hate to get behind on the blog, so here are mostly phone pics of our July days.  

Daddy gave the brothers mohawks. They're feeling brotherly and cool with the hair-do. 

What handsome boys I have.  :)

qsp asks, "Mom, can you put my J's on me".  He wasn't really interested in clothes, just his basketball shoes.  

He never acknowledged that his pants were half way down.  klp on the other hand was trying to pull them up for him, but he finally gave up.  

Drying off after a dip in the kiddie pool.

Face timing with our Montana family.  

See the lower jaw sticking out?? Thats the face he makes when he feels cool.  I see it anytime he puts on new shoes, sunglasses, a shirt he likes, or anything that makes him feel big.  He's got swagger.  

He's not the only one rockin' the sunglasses. klp-always upside down.  qsp-always over the outside of his ears. What ev. 

Check this out, will ya??  Go Paris, Texas.  As if the red cowboy hat wasn't fancy enough, my home is hittin' the big time with colored lights.  

Mixing lemonade with Auntie Nancye.  They love each other. 

Enjoying our snack outside.  Peaches and grapes-our summer staples.

Lovely juice running down his arm. 

I can almost not handle the cuteness of this picture.  Its just too much for this mama.  

Q requested an individual shot. 

I think this was from a while ago, but I just found it on my computer.  Playing Dr. in the hamper.  

Q and his friend Grant had Superman night at church! 

These are my Garage Sale BFF's.  We just had our 3rd or 4th garage sale together and the fun never stops.  We set up the night before, have a slumber party, then SELL THE JUNK the next day. Its so much fun!  We had a late night Blizzard run to help us finish out the last of our pricing and setting up.  We are getting old and the late night/early morning isn't as easy on us as it used to be.  

Here we are holding/wearing treasures we couldn't believe weren't selling.  We had a successful day of making what I call "free money" and laughed and laughed the whole time. I really love these girls (and not just because we have fun having garage sales).

My boys discovering all sorts of things they loved that Amy and Mindi brought to sell.  

We had a busy week last week with Dr. appointments.  This boy is a stud.  

At the eye Dr.  He brought his own flashlights. For so long I had to hold him in my lap, but now the big boy does everything himself.  

Getting fitted for new leg braces...He was a little nervous about this, but he did great.  

One day, klp asked if he could lay on my baby while he read his book.  Hope he doesn't try to lay on it when its out of my belly, but for now, it makes a pretty good pillow.  

Lookin' pretty rough, but we're out at Camp for church.  The next 2 cousins on the way!  Maurine and Clay's is due in October :)

We were in NEED of some yummy Pittsburg peaches, so we asked my aunt Mary Lynn to come with us and we had a fun little day.  Of course, Q took advantage of the free peach, but when offered, klp said the usual, "I can't like that."

We've eaten TONS (especially me and Q), given a few away and I've made 3 pies.  (I only kept one for us)


So one night I was rolling out the dough for one of my pies and it started making my stomach muscles/baby belly HURT SO BAD.  Like I could barely walk and had to go sit down. It was the strangest thing and very painful.  Since I try NOT to have contractions, KLP offered to finish rolling out the dough and he even finished the topping and some of the filling.  He wasn't as angry as he looks in the picture :)  

Not sure how much blogging I'll do in the next 2 weeks.  Hopefully I'll be all caught up when Baby arrives.....in 2 weeks!!  YAY!
