Ever since the "puppy" horror (click on puppy to see photographic evidence) of 2008, we hadn't felt brave enough to go see the poppies. See, Nolan was convinced that we were going to see actual puppies. Much to his surprise there were just a bunch of orange flowers and weeds that got stuck in his flip flops (because I wanted to see how hard I could make it on myself). He did not hide his disappointment/bitterness well and you can see it on his face. This year was our year though, and they did not disappoint (although my pictures kind of did). All three boys were very happy with the puppies this year and we didn't see any snakes. So that's a praise!!

Yenner and his dentist for the day. Jaydie....the tooth yanker.

Yenner has lost his first tooth, thanks mostly to being hit in the mouth with a hard baseball a couple times. Rob and I actually had nothing to do with the whole process. I hear Jayden and Yenner in the bathroom saying things like, "wait, I almost got it. Open your mouth bigger. Just one more time." And at last I hear shouts of joy. Jaydie managed to yank that bad boy out like it was nothing. So if you ever need a toof pulled just call our Jaydie. There may be a small fee involved. A service like this doesn't come cheap.

Baby Chase made his first appearance at the game. He's getting huge!!
Nolie is going for MVP in t-ball this year. I think he's gonna get it.
Baseball = chewing gum and blowing bubbles.
I LOVE the way their ears stick out of the hat. Can we permanently attach that to his head?

I watch the Duggers. There, I said it and I think admitting it is key. Confession number two...I'm also reading their book. I think I might be a Dugger stalker. Anyhow, I got this idea from their book. Because honestly, I need all the practical parenting advice I can get. All they have to do is say "okay Momma" when I tell them to do something and they get a sticker. At the end of the month they will get a penny for every sticker earned. The "okay Mommas" are suddenly coming out of the woodwork; they're even saying it when they don't really need to. Who knew pennies could be such a motivator.

P.S. I think Jaydie may have passed on his finger issue to Nolie. We're gonna need a whole other chart for that.

Ever since Grammie read an airplane book (that I think Nana got for Jaydie years ago) to Yenner he has been OB-SESSED with different kinds of planes. He informed me today that he's going to fly the space shuttle when he grows up. Way to shoot for the stars little buddy!!
Rob, being the photog that he is, was trying to have the boys point for this photo opportunity. And Jaydie, being the pointing police officer that he is, is trying to "help" his brother do that.
Here they are sitting on a bomb, I think. That's just plain good sense boys. Don't let anyone tell you different.
Do the smiles get any cheesier than this?
Rob took the boys on a little field trip to that airplane place in Palmdale the other day. I don't remember why I couldn't go or what I was doing, but I'm sure it was something fun.Thanks Sweetie for the little break and for taking such fantastic pictures!! You're the bomb and you let your boys sit on one!!
