"Knee Deep" - Phil's Birthday

"Gonna put the world away for a minute
Pretend I don't live in it
Sunshine gonna wash my blues away..."

Today is Phil's birthday!

I got up early and made breakfast; one of Phil's most favorite things! Every time I do it he says: "We should do this every day!"

I don't know who was happier about the bacon and eggs this morning? Him or pregnant mama?

Phil said it was most definitely pregnant mama.

Or maybe Baby Micah? Not so baby anymore...

"Wishing I was knee deep in the water somewhere
Got the blue sky breeze and it don't seem fair
Only worry in the world is the tide gonna reach my chair..."

Luke and I went to Best Buy at 8:00 PM last night to get daddy the Zac Brown Band cd with the song "Knee Deep". It was an adventure for him and he got to stay up and wrap it!

I have been trying to get Phil to relax ever since we first met. He doesn't even like to take naps...until now! It never dawned on me that "relaxing" means so much more when you actually have something you want to take a break from.

Phil didn't get home from work until 7:30 last night.

I'm not complaining. I'm just saying he treasures every minute of the weekend!

I hope that someday this will will be us:

"Wrote a note said be back in a minute
Bought a boat and I sailed off in it
Don't think anybody gonna miss me anyway..."

Cheers to you Phil and your special day!

25 Weeks and still pregnant!
Happy to be here growing "a nice sized baby" as my midwife said at my last appointment.
Measuring a week ahead of schedule.
Trying to resist the temptation to overdo it...

...and accumulating "girly" things!

No need to worry about hair when you have the perfect hat!

A boy closet going pink.




Pants with a pink heart on the bottom? Why YES!!!!!!

Resisting the urge to feed my family beans and rice every night so that I can shop endlessly at Yea. Their family holiday coordinating outfits are out and on SALE!

Phil has been warned.

And this coordinating outfit WILL be happening:

A Splashy Day

What good is an umbrella if you can't use it?

Lately, we have had much rain.

Things have "greened" up quite nicely. We were starting to wonder if our yard would make it through?

We feel bad for our Texas friends and the drought that makes shower water smell like earth.

Luke and I sent a package to Texas last week for our friends who had a new baby. Luke said "I want to send them a hose to put out the fire" He has been very concerned about the wild fires in Texas.

A splashy puddle was located

And fallen into.

Watch out!

Getting splashed by brother.

Spider moves.

Ditching the umbrella!

Praying today for some sweet rain to cover Texas!

Quick and Easy Pizza Recipe


2 Flour Tortilla Shells
leftover spaghetti sauce
shredded cheese
various pizza toppings

Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lay tortillas on baking sheet. Spread spaghetti sauce over flour tortillas. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. If your kids or you like toppings get creative and cover with toppings. Self explanatory right? Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese bubbles along the edge.

This is my go to recipe when Luke requests pizza for lunch. I like it because I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. When I use a jar of spaghetti sauce I usually do not use the whole thing and there is a little left in the jar in the fridge. Also, I just use whatever cheese I have on hand. Sometimes it is shredded and sometimes not. Sometimes I only have mozzarella string cheese so I just string that up and lay the strings over the sauce. My kids like it because the little pizzas look like the real thing! They love them!
