Totally Random Post

I've got some odds and ends for you today.

I've got to explain this picture to you a bit.
On Sunday mornings, because Mark really wants to go to the early (8:15) service, he is in charge of getting the girls up and getting them breakfast. It never goes well, because when we have to wake them up it's not pleasant.
This past Sunday, Halle absolutely did not wake up well and didn't want anything to do with getting breakfast. I was in the bathroom, taking my shower and so forth and when I came into the kitchen, this was what I saw:

I couldn't help but laugh. Halle is the blob under the blanket in the middle chair. She did come around after awhile. I can't blame her too much- I don't like being woken up either!

I had to show you our first pick of the garden. Arianna's cucumber was ready. She was very excited. The Tomatoes, beans, onions, green peppers, jalapenos, zucchini's are not far behind!

Nick takes after Mark in almost everything. His love of photography comes from him too. He was messing around setting up pictures he thought would be cool and took this one. I thought it turned out great!

That is a great picture that Nick took! Nice job!

How cool that your garden is doing well! Caleb's bean plant is not doing too bad. I hope he gets at least one bean off of it for his sake!!

I do not blame Halle one bit. I hate getting up for the early service too.

I love Nick's pictures! They're so unique - it makes you stop and think about it for a while.

Sounds like you have a lot in your garden this year - the cucumber is almost as big as Arianna's smile!

I was in YC&W with Halle on Sunday morning and she didn't seem tired at all in there - she must have woken up! :)

Diane beat me but I was going to add that Halle wasn't showing any signs of a rough morning by the time YC&W rolled around. She was a blast!

That Halle is a scream! I Love Arianna's smile. . ahum. . cucumber!
Nick is catching on quickly how to crop those photos! I just called our son who is in Atlanta this morning to ask him how to turn off the flash on my new camera. The directions are in too small a print for me to see. Now he knows we are over the hill.

Poor Halle - I'm right there with her.

That's one big cucumber - mine are not nearly that big yet!

I totally feel for Halle - I am SO NOT a morning person!!

I think Nick should enlarge that pic. and have in framed.It's perfect for a game room wall.I really like it! Tell Arianna she better stand guard in that garden of her's I'm pretty hungry. My kids don't want to get up for first service either.And that's my quiet time,so I don't push it.Take care,Patty

I love that first picture! I'm glad you make Mark get them up and breakfast! That's a good job for the male half of the marriage on Sunday mornings!

You have such a precious family! I love reading about them and their personalities.
Much love,

Love all the pics. Nick is really good at photography! Halle made me laugh b/c I would be the same way!

I am going to sum up all my comments into this post-

I am thrilled they had such a good time in Guatemala. Our church just came back from a mission trip in Honduras.

And love the comment on the 4th.

I feel the same way as Halle if I have to get up early. Even though I wish my husband didn't have to work every Sunday and could go to church with me, I know he would wake me up for early service too. Instead, I sleep in and go to the 11:15 service. Love it!!

I like the blob under the blanket. 8:15 is a little early for us.

I loved looking at your pics from Guatemala! Such sweet faces on those children.
