Flashback Friday :)

YAY!!!!! I found a happy picture to share.

So on June 17th, my Wyatt boy is going to be turning 6. I can't believe that!!! I am so proud of him, his a worker like no other (except maybe his dad). He loves horses and has been wearing his spurs for almost 2 years straight :) He loves helping with his brothers and ADORES new babies! He is funny and wants thinks to be perfect all the time (kinda hard with 2 little brothers around, but he tries). He's an athlete and loves to run and play. Can't wait to watch him play t-ball again this year. This picture is from his 4th birthday party, we went camping in Kilgore and he was so happy!!! What a sweet boy!! Now if I could figure out what to get him for his birthday in a few weeks!

I'm tired of blogging without new pictures.
I'm tired of coughing all night instead of sleeping.
I'm tired of semi-nice weather, it's just teasing me.
I'm tired of crazy people that were never taught how to be nice.
I'm tired of laundry.
I'm tired of dirty little boys.
I'm tired of being tired.

How depressing am I???
Funny story now. The other day Cooper had on one of his John Deere Shirt on, the one that says "I make dirt look good". Anyway, I can't get him to take it off. I had it on for honestly 2 days straight ... I was pretty sick and didn't fight him to much. Finally I had to get it off of him, I can only stand so much neglect. Here's how the conversation went down.
Me: "Cooper, we have to take that shirt off"
Coop: "Why?"
Me: "It's dirty."
Coop: "I like it dirty."
Me: "Well it's getting pretty stinky."
Coop: "I REALLY like it stinky"
How can you fight that kind of logic? I let him keep it on and went and took 3 more tylenol.

FYI-I got it off him that night when I lured him into the bathtub, I can be pretty sneaky when I want to. :)

We branded calves yesterday, good times, good times. I'm nice and sunburnt now. My flowers are looking dandy, and my grass is getting greener by the day.
Ok, now I'm tired of blogging. Better head!!

I would die for that.

This is the most touching thing I've seen in a LONG time!! It hit a cord for so many reasons, that are close to my heart. I have family and friends that have struggled with infertility and I know how special it is to be a mom. I would give anything for my kids ... my body with atest to that. There were so many times with my last pregnancy that I was in the hospital with them shoving needles in me that I would've loved to hear this song. Enjoy!!!

Just click on the link and it should come up.

Let me know what you think about it.

Can anyone hear me??????????????????

No, because I don't have a voice right now. Ask me how fun that is for me. The boys love it, they laugh whenever I start squeaking at them...they think it's rather amusing. However, I'm not quite as amused. How's a momma supposed to find a babysitter in Mud Lake without being able to talk? It's high school graduation tonight, I have a sister-in-law and a cousin graduating...will I be there? Who knows at this point. I've had a sinus infection/cold/strep/crap for a while now. Wyatt had strep last week, Hyrum had a double ear infection and sinus infection, and Coop had an attitude (is there a prescription for that?). It's been a not fun week. Also for those of you who don't have the privilege of living in Terreton or having family that lives or works in Terreton... I am expecting. I'm about 3 months along and doing AMAZINGLY well (no IV's yet, no hospital yet) other than this gunk I can't shake. I cough all night and then am exhausted all day. Could I whine anymore? Really, it's not all that bad. I have green grass, my boys are still playing like wild indians outside and Paisley is adorable, and Sam & Autumn will have a baby any day now. I do have it good, I have soft kleenex's :).

Branding & Cutting @ the Hoggan's

Jay throwing a big loop off of Slim
Baby's after the branding

Last Monday had more entertainment than most people can handle. The day started out when I was out mowing my lawn and Jay Hoggan stopped by to see if Wyatt wanted to go help him. Of course Wyatt went and grabbed his hat and rope and jumped in the pick-up. I went down a couple hours later with the other 2 and ended up at Grandma Hoggan's. They were cutting horses and then branding the baby calves. Wyatt was so stoked to see the roping!! He asked J-2 why they were cutting the horses stomachs. J-2 was very helpful and told him that they were just cutting their nuts off. Out of the mouths of babes :) So a little later when a bucking horse ran and broke through the fence Wyatt said "J-2, it's a rodeo!" J-2 said "It's not a rodeo", so Wyatt said "Well it's a nut rodeo". Pretty entertaining. Here are a few cool pics courtesy of my best bud Mindy Marie Hoggan. Isn't Wyatt a little ham!!

Another installment of flashback friday ...

My flashbacks are pretty boring lately --- I have plenty of rad pictures, my scanner just isn't hooked up yet. Sorry all! This week has been awful (as many of you & most of Mud Lake knows). I'm not up to writing about it yet, maybe next week. I'm alive, Hyrum's alive and all is well. There you go.

This last week has made me very grateful that I live in such a stellar community. Don't get me wrong, Terreton is not quite perfection :) but there are so many wonderful and good people here, that it almost outweighs the bad. I love this picture of my grandpa Phillip, Uncle Edgar, and Rex Furness --- they were in the bishopric in Terreton and were great friends, people still talk about them highly and with love. I love that Rex's & Grandpa's posterity live in the area still, I hope that I always live up to the legacy that they started!

Problems ...

I can't find my dang thingee that transfers my pictures from my camera to my computer. What a drag. I don't have the heart to post without the happy pictures I've taken lately. So here is a rundown of some of the excitement at our house the last few weeks.

1. Done planting grain.
2. Moved the cows behind the lake (rather entertaining...I think the Mexicans thought they were bull-fighters, more on that later)
3. A new addition at the Tuckett household (named Shorty Tuckett)
4. Started planting potatoes.
5. Paisley's baby blessing.
6. Grass is greening up and my lilac is getting buds on it!!! YAY!!! Spring may be here FINALLY!
7. That's all for now I think :)

Hope you and yours are enjoying the sunshine --- I'm off to till the gardenspot up -- wish I knew how big to make it :)
