Blueberry Pickin'

On a September Sunday afternoon, sometime between Montana and Sage's birthdays(these are the only dates I remember when sick), Blake wanted to take a trip to pick blueberries! Wonderful idea, Blake!!! It was hot, but we had the blueberry farm to ourselves and were shaded walking between the huge blueberry bushes. We tasted them right off the bush...the owner did too and told us to do so! There were several horses off to the side of the bushes so we petted them before we left(well, Sage asked to pet them but then refused and this is a pattern I'm noticing with many things she wants these days). Blake took a jillion pics so I had a hard time picking...enjoy!
Montana giving them a taste
Sage found them a little sour, looks like.
They started off being good little helpers to fill up our big bucket!

Completely out of order, but this is how Blake found Sage when we pulled up to the farm.

Looks like she just had to get used to the taste:)

The bucket is full!!!


Fun times at the blueberry farm!

THE Birthday Party!!!

I don't think I will ever stop laughing when I think of Blake's outlandish(I think that's a good word for it?) performance as "The Duke of Duke" at Sage and Montana's birthday party! I cannot believe I didn't have the video camera out, but I will completely blame it on the pregnancy. And, I know Blake was fully focused on his surprise role he was going to play to think of it himself. I had NO IDEA that he was plotting this and he came out before Cinderella and Snow White to teach everyone how to greet and treat a princess...HILARIOUS! He talked in an Old English accent if that helps your imagination! I know I'm going on and on about him but he is too much and I love him! What a memorable party!!!

He ran out of the back door, leaped over the chairs, swimming pool, and kids...this was his entrance!
Here he is giving his princess lesson and I seriously could hardly breathe!

The kids are confused about what is going on and the adults cant stop laughing!

He did acquire an injury when leaping over the chairs.
But the princesses(aka my sis-in-laws) were a hit and did a wonderful job!
Blythe(my other sis-in-law) painted Mickey and Minnie ears on their faces:)

Unwrapping lots of gifts...thanks again everyone!!!

The party crew!

Cinderella, Snow White, and Sage

Enjoying stories and still laughing at The Duke
Montana's turn
Avery and Adleigh's turn

And they are off to return to their royal palaces...

but they are missed:(

sorely missed!!
Pin the flower on Minnie...and Micah, the youngest contestant won!

And Graydon won the pull string pinata:)

Happy 4th Birthday Montana and 2nd Birthday Sage! God has been so good to us...we love every ounce of both of you!!!!

The Party Goes On!!!!

On Labor Day weekend we had almost all of our family drive in town for Sage and Montana's birthday party. But, on Friday afternoon, I got a call from Montana's school saying she needed to be picked up because she looked like she had pink eye!! No way, not on this weekend I was hoping. Then she woke up Saturday morning even worse so we had a small party but big fun! My sister and her family stayed with us but thankfully no one caught "the pink eye"(which is still what Montana calls it). Here is the day before the party:

August 25, 2010

Before the mayhem, our big girl turned 4!! No doubt I told her too early that she had a birthday coming because she asked everyday for over a month. Needless to say, she was thrilled to be a 4 year old and still thinks she is officially a big girl...which i guess she kinda is?!? WE LOVE YOU MONTANA MAE WITH ALL OUR HEARTS!!!!!

Breland, Beth, and Barrett joined us for more candles since Uncle Breland and Montana share a birthday!!

Wow, it has been a whirlwind of a month, to say the least! The day Montana started preschool we found out we are expecting baby #3(PRAISE)!!! And it wasn't too long after that I began to feel nauseated. I felt decent the weekend of the girls birthday party(PRAISE), but the day after my world came crashing down!!! It was HORRIBLE! I did keep my breakfast down everyday but that was usually it for about 3 weeks! The only place I felt I could survive is in my bed with the lights out and the fan on high. Blake and I talked last night about how incredibly thankful we are to everyone who helped us, served us, and prayed for us during those weeks(PRAISE)! It is overwhelming to look back and see how God completely provided for us when were in need. I have been reading 1 Peter and have so humbly seen 1 Peter 2:22 lived out through our friends and family!!! It reads, "Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart."
On a side note: I have a blood clot on/near my uterus that is resolving itself...another PRAISE!
I am currently going through tons of pics that were taken: blueberry picking, Montana's bday, Sage's bday, bday party, and maybe more. I need to get busy since fall festivities are right around the corner!!
