Little Wife On the Prairie

When you are everything to everyone, well, you had better act like you have it all together.

What could be more American than a little, messy-headed country girl running down a dirt road?

I guess you could add a bus.

And a big brother.


And the rest of the crew.

An old cow dog,

and few goofballs. 

A sweet, "Mama I'm home" smile,

and a "brother I love you" belly-laugh.

God Bless this home, these children and this great nation!  Feeling very thankful tonight.

A smaller than small house renovation update!

We painted!  Ta-da!

Not impressed?  Well let me just tell you that my husband did such a fantastic job.  He took his time repairing and filling cracks and holes, taping off all of the edges and getting the lines perfectly straight.  It was worth the wait!  It is beautiful and light.  We do like to take our time around here.  :)  Next update will be...a longtime from now.

In other news, the kids started riding the bus home from school in the afternoons.  They love it, I love it, we all love it! 
Hi kids!
 If you are sick of Micah pics you are in the wrong place.  I have more.  Here is my girl of many faces.
When we say I love you

When she says I'm sad

When I say smile!

When she wants her way.

This is just her everyday look.  Love my girl!

This is a Micah-heavy post...

and I'll tell you why.  She is the only child who is by my side all day, every day.  The others have grown and found better things to do.  But this baby girl still thinks her mama is pretty cool.  It won't be long before she dumps me for daddy though.  It always happens.
See, it has already started.  Making breakfast with Daddy is the first step.

What in the world happened to your hair?!?

She is such a stinker but so smart!  She is talking so much and learning to everything the big kids do.

Her big sister loves to dress her up, paint her toes and spray her with smelly-good stuff.

Micah is still trying to figure it all out.  Since I am not a girlie-girl, it is kind of nice for Jolie to give Micah that experience.

And she does look pretty darn cute.
Plus, this is the other side of her sibling training program.

They really have trained her to laugh at things little girls shouldn't.  Like certain body sounds. :(

They really don't smell very good either and are usually dirty.

 But oh my how they love her!  It's pretty sweet.  And I think any future guy friends
will have to tread very carefully!
