Another funny conversation we had with Caden.

Jason started to sing in the car and if you know Caden he immediately tells whoever starts to sing to stop. He doesn't like people to sing unless it's him.

Caden - Dad you have to stop singing.
Jason - But why?
Kris - Caden you don't get to decide who gets to sing or not.
Caden - No singing.
Jason - Why can't I sing?
Caden - Because there's no sin...See More
Irene Nowyckyj Johnson - Does he understand what a Nazi is?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - No, but one day when he's older he will. It's not a very nice term, but we mean it in a joking way. But he really is like that. Whenever anyone starts singing or humming he says "Stop singing or No singing". He's a funny boy.

We have such weird animals. For the past three days our cat Mr. Fisk has walked with us to take the kids to school. The kids having been riding their bikes and Violet doggy walks with me (Kris). Today we decided to play at the park, Caden had a great time swinging on the swings and playing. While the animals played and wondered around the park. I've never known a cat to actually play with a dog and to walk the kids to school.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - I also added some pic's of those two sleeping in Violets bed, never known a dog to share there bed with a cat.  Nor have I ever seen a dog and cat play the way they do.  It's so funny!

Swinging on the swings at the park by her school.

She made a pouch for her little lammy - just like a kangaroo.  Plus wearing Mom's garden hat, which of course she wanted me to take a pic. of both.

Taking back the Backyard

Taking back the Backyard!

If you look through the different pic's you will see all of the hard work Jason has put into making the backyard look really nice. No more piles of rotting - black widowed infested wood piles everywhere, no more thorn-bushes. We're putting down grass seeds so we will have nice green grass - instead of weed grass and dirt. We've planted flower beds all along the sides / back of the yard. Plus we have put in a fire-pit and a big garden on the other side of the yard. It's still a work in progress, but he has done a great job!!! Hope Jason (my brother) and Mary like what we've done, we got their permission of course.  What do you think???

This was what part of the backyard use to look like.

This is what it looks like now! Jason was able to get rid of most of the thorns-bushes. We haven't put the flower bed along that back fence yet, but we're working on it.

This was what part of the backyard use to look like.

This is what it look like now! There were several rotted wood piles and more thorn-bushes and we were able to get rid of all of that. We've planted flower beds along the side fence.

This was what part of the front of the shed looked like.

This was what another part of the front of the shed looked like.

This is what it looks like now. Jason hauled away alot of the junk (with help - thanks everyone)!

This is what the side of the shed looked like. There were piles of pipe, metal, rotten - black widowed infested wood, ect., ect. all over the place.

This is what it looks like now. We got rid of most of the crap and what stayed was relocated to the back of the shed. Thanks again everyone for the help. Jason has done a great job. We planted a flower bed along the side. Kris is excited to see the flowers when they bloom.

Plus Jason added a fire-pit, bring on the S'mores.  The kids really like this idea!

And where the coach was, now is a big garden area for our fruits and veggies. Wa-hoo!!! Plus we have a little area on the back of the house for our herbs.

Jason has really done a wonderful job, he has worked really really hard.  Way to go babe!!!

St. Patrick's Day '14

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

We had a great time celebrating one of Kris's favorite holiday's.  

Here's some pic's I (Kris) took.

The kids had alot of fun searching for their chocolate gold, which the Leprechaun left them.  

Yummy four leaf clover cookies!

This was Caden's favorite part - Cookies, our resident cookie monster.

 This was Sydney's favorite part.  I made her one of her favorite sandwiches for lunch - Tuna, but this time I made it green for the special day.  She thought that was great fun!

Jason really likes his new glasses.  He even wore green, half of the time he forgets to wear green.

Me being silly and having fun.

Getting a Kiss from a Irish/Scottish Man!  Wahoo!!!

 I have this hanging in my kitchen all year long.
