My Beauties!

McKaylee Ann
Daphnee and McKaylee

Daphnee Reese

Miss Austen Jade



When Steph was here helping me after I had Austen, she was packing up her stuff and told me that she couldn't find a bottle with giraffes on it. She told me that if I found it to just throw it away because her youngest son Tyson was going to be weaned off of bottles.

Fast forward 3 months.....

Russ and I were setting up the easter egg hunt. I kneeled down to put an egg by the sub woofer I noticed that there was something inside. When the hunt was over I had Daphnee put her hand in there and pull out whatever was inside. ( My hand was too big to fit in there) This is what she pulled out... The lost moldy missing bottle! Now here is the kicker!!!!!! There was a smell in my house that I couldn't figure out what it was and where it was coming from. I had cleaned every room in the house, and for those who know me I got down and my hands and knees and sanitized this house. Nothing helped. My house down right REAKED!!!! When I smelled the bottle I knew where the nasty smell had come from. I gladly threw the bottle away! Thanks Tyson for being a curious boy and putting your bottle in the speaker!


This picture isn't the greatest but a momma bird built her nest in our light. I noticed that a bird was in our landing a lot but I had no idea that we was building a nest until one day we turned on our light and it was kind of dim. When we looked closer we noticed that there was a nest up there.

One day we heard the cute tweets coming from the nest. The eggs had hatched! I don't know how many birds there were. I know there were at least 2. We were watching the light and 2 birdies just flew out it was so cool to see.

A week went by and we noticed that we didn't hear the cute tweets and we hadn't seen the birds in a little bit. When we checked the light the birds were gone. This is what a nest looked like.

The momma bird used our mulch in the nest and somewhere she was able to find carpet fibers and yarn to line the nest to make it comfortable for her babies. You notice that there are no egg shells. They didn't drop in the entry way and they weren't under the nest so I don't know where they went. Do birds eat their shells? Any how... we got to witness a spring babies come and go!
