Stink Ball & Truck

A couple weeks ago we went to a community event at our local park for the ribbon cutting of the new amphitheater. They had a kids craft and Peyton made this 'thing' and called it Stink Ball. Yep, he came up with that name all himself! Such a proud moment for Papa and Mommy. Haha! Its so ugly its cute! This is a great activity to do with kids! It is pretty much nylons with dirt and grass seed in it. Leave a comment if you want more info and I'll post the instructions to it. Here is a picture of Stink Ball:
For those of you that know Chris, it would not be a surprise at all to find out that we once again have sold a vehicle and bought another one. I think buying and selling used vehicles is a hobby to him. He had an older Ford, but thought it would be nice to have an extended cab since we now have 2 kids. So he sold his standard cab Ford for an extended cab one (well, sort of, in a round about way). Well, he then decided he'd like an older crew cab Chevy instead of the Ford. So he posted his extended cab Ford on Craigslist. If you can believe it, a guy from Pennsylvania called him on it and bought it! Yep, hired a company to come and haul it across the US. Crazy, huh? So this big old car hauling semi pulls up in front of our house this evening! I can just imagine what our neighbors were thinking! Bye bye ford....

Hello Chevy...or as Peyton would say, hello Papas Monster Truck! lol...

Its pretty sad when I found myself content for a half hour or more sitting in the front bay window watching them load maneuver the cars around so that the truck would fit on the back!

Completely changing gears once again, I have been asked quite a bit lately how Peyton likes Maddy. Well, here is a picture that explains it well. He just LOVES to give her hugs and kisses and quite often I find him curled up next to her or giving her loving like this.

LOL! I think your husband and my dad would get along well!! My dad was always buying and selling used vehicles. He doesn't do it as much now but he still does! He recently drove 5 hours to pick up a car he bought over the internet.

That last photo of your kiddies is adorable!! Too sweet!!
