Love from Texas!

You know how I sign all of my posts and comments "Love from Texas!"

Well this photo of Nora shows exactly how we feel when we say "Love from Texas!" :) Here she is showing off her new necklace that one of my swappers included in their swap package especially for her! Thanks so much for making her feel so special!!!

Playing in the dirt seemed like sucha fun idea until...

This flower bed is over on the other side of the driveway and we have never bothered planting anything in there. Why bother b/c the cattle come up and eat the shrubs and make them look terrible!

So today David gave them permission to use their sand pails and shovels and have at it. I don't know why we didn't think of this months ago - it would have kept them out of the flowerbed along the house and then they wouldn't have messed up the mulch so bad.

They were having a ball! UNTIL.....

see that little frog statue beside Paul Thomas.... see that sand pile by the frog....?


Oh NO! Everyone outta the dirt!!! Stop playing! No more fun for you :( Daddy has to treat the fire ants and we have to stay outta this new fun area for the next day or two :(

But little sister didn't listen.... she SNEAKED back over to the dirt when we weren't lookin and stepped right into them :(

OUCHIE! :( She screamed and screamed, there were 5 or 6 bites at the most... where as earlier this summer PT had over 100 over his two feet and legs. Can we say,

"Does NOT handle pain well at all" You would have thought she was dying!

I had this and used it but could not tell that it gave her any pain relief at all. Although she did like holding the bottle.

Hopefully now that Olivia has had her first taste of FIRE ANTS she'll listen and obey us next time.
