Reminiscing the ole iPhone Photos

I finally got my iPhone last June and absolutely LOVE it!! Today I was looking through some of the early photos on it and here's what I came up with:

These were my bottle triplets. Their mommy died less than a week after they were born so I became mommy.

Last summer I got into painting my toenails. This was for the 4th of July. I thought it was cool at least. I also did beach toes, stripes, polka dots, zebra stripes, bees, John Deere and whatever else tickled my fancy.

I was just playing with my phone and walking around getting Prince Charming (my now fiance, my then friend) photos of our animals. This is Squirty girl.

This was in August when my parents went to Hawaii and left me here to take care of animals. Squirty & Mini Me were sick with colds. Kalem & Josh came over to help me take care of animals.

This is Morelli and Millie. Millie is the one who looks like a mop. She's a Cocker Spaniel but you sure can't tell it by her mane.

Ma & Pa Kettle as my mom calls them or else Cricket & Munchkin.

This is Joey or Joe, whichever. I so swear it looks like he's talking in this photo.

Muddy Mudflap (aka Mudflap) when he was a puppy. He came to join us in May (he was my dad's Father's Day present a month early) and this was probably early July.

This was the first photo taken on my iPhone courtesy of Kalem.

This is Buff. Yes he is a Buffalo. He unfortunately died this winter. We aren't sure what killed off all our Male buffalo... it was weird. They ran with the cows and they we're calm as long as you didn't crowd them. The original Buffalo Trio were named Moe, Larry & Curley but when the other 2 died this one got named Buff.

This is Blondie. She's my mare. I just need to break her to ride... any takers?

Ok I'll quit uploading photos off my phone. I think truthfully there are 344 now... I need to get some of them off there!

Project - Jam Session

So Sunday nights we have dinner with friends (or at least every time we can make it, it's a weekly thing at their house for a bunch of friends). Tonight we made it! Noah when he's in town brings his guitar and tonight he and Prince Charming picked and sang. It was a lot of fun and trust me the food was fabulous! So without further adu I present Project Jam Session (or maybe I should have called it picking... hmmmm I'll ponder that for a while).


I liked that my baby was playing and Noah was singing. I loved this photo though b/c it so looks like Noah is singing into his water bottle (aka spit bottle)

Prince Charming:

Prince Charming liked this one because of the serious look on Noah's face.

Ok I'll try to announce one for next week... let's hope we get it done :). Next weeks word: Kentucky...

Project - Pond

Ok so we are getting caught up on our weekly posts. This is for last week :). This one is project pond, if you couldn't guess from the title :) I'll make it short, sweet and to the point, so that means get prepared for the photos :)


She's not much to look at right now, however in the summer time she'll be beautiful again. This is the pond we built my mom 2 years ago.

Prince Charming:

So technically this isn't a pond, it's a big puddle in our driveway but Prince Charming likes to pick on Tbug and call it a pond. He liked this photo because of the reflection of the trees.

Go Cards!!!!

Ok sorry for the confusion, this is not a baseball post. This is a Red Bird story post that is near and dear to my heart.

So the year was about 2005, I was home one weekend from college and we were all sleeping peacefully one Sunday morning when all the sudden we hear, Peck, Peck, Peck, Peck, Peck.... etc. You get the point. Anyway there was this pesky red bird that was flying in to the big circle top window in the front of my mom & dad's house. It was annoying, especially at 6am when we were all snug as a bug in a rug in our beds. The funny part, this continued every morning for the next 2 weeks at the exact same time of day. We'd go, shew him away but that wouldn't detour him, he'd wait until we we're gone and he'd be right back at it.

So I was at my grandma's house one day and told her about this pesky red bird and she told me a story. It ended with Red birds mate for life. I thought, ok that's interesting... is he mating with himself (reflection...)? Anyway I went on about my business. The company that my mom works for, she travels a lot and when she goes she's gone for usually anywhere from 1 week to 3 weeks at a time. So as she'd travel I'd notice the bird would go away and when she'd come home, the bird was back. Well me being the jokester that I am had to tell my dad so he and I got a good laugh about it on a pretty consistent basis. So one day we let my mom in on the joke and said that the red bird mated with her. If you can imagine, that just thrilled her.

So here we are, 5 years later and the dumb red bird is still coming around. I'm beggining to think my grandma might have been on to something. This bird annoys my mother and the rest of us because, well... he constantly pecks into the windows. We can't explain it.

So back up to Christmas 2005, I thought it would be funny to give her a red bird Christmas tree ornament that I found. Well of course the red bird made the Christmas tree that year (and every year after, that's what she gets for making me put up and decorate her tree. If she wants him to go away she should quit asking me to put up her Christmas tree... LOL).

So it has become a tradition to see how to get a red bird in on one of my mom's Christmas presents ever year. And they have to be different. It is quite challenging but fun. This year she looked at me and said, Don't get me a redbird this year. Well I halfway listened... I'll explain in a minute.

Christmas 2005 (no picture b/c it's put up) was the Red Bird Christmas Tree Ornament

Christmas 2006 I was at Hobby Lobby and saw this cute cowboy hat ornamental bird house. Well I thought it would go great in my mom's cowboy bathroom and ornery me decided to wire a red bird on the perch. I wrapped it so when she opened the box, that was the first thing she saw. Funniest part, after 4 years the birdhouse is up and the bird is still on it.

Christmas 2007 I was on a mission. This time I found a circle of friends candle holder with a red bird in the group of birds. Yeah it still sits on the counter......

Christmas 2008: My mom collects these things called Painted Ponies. They are very cool but that's besides the point. This year Painted Ponies came out with a 4 seasons special edition, one for Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter. Well when I saw the winter one I started giggling and my mom glared at me. I told her I was buying this one for her for Christmas. So technically she knew about this one, but hey she liked it b/c it was part of the special edition...

Christmas 2009: This year I was told not to get her a red bird. Well I somewhat listened..... The picture up at the top (the first one) yeah well... for Christmas I thought my mom would like a digital photo frame, I hope you went there b/c yup you guessed it... the picture wound up on the picture frame. So she thought she got away with no red bird until we set up the digital photo frame and Prince Charming made it a point that that was the first picture to show up. We got yelled at... LOL

So this post isn't finished yet... jump forward (or backward however you want to look at it) to 2 weeks ago. While we were at Horsefest we were walking through looking at all the displays and ran across the wind catchers and I spotted a St. Louis Cardinals one and got my dad & Prince Charming's attention. Long story short it isn't Christmas but we bought it. This week my dad got a hanger and this morning Prince Charming hung it up on the Porch (actually where the bird always hangs out. I don't think my mom has seen it yet because she hasn't yelled at us, however I'll tell you one thing... the bird was mad. I went outside to get this photo and the bird was chirping and flying around like crazy.

(and yes, we still have some Christmas lights up... if Mudflap had his way, they'd be down)

So if you look in the tree, there's the redbird. He was flying around like crazy and chirping. He's mad but I don't think he has pecked at the windows today, just keeps flying past this red bird wind catcher and chirping... tree to tree to tree. It's hilarious.

I hope you get as good of a laugh about this as we all do, although I'm sure being a part of it like we are helps but I had to share none the less. Especially because we hung up the catcher and my mom hasn't seen it and the bird is ticked off. I'll try to keep you updated as to what happens with all of this :) but I bet the catcher will stay up if it keeps the bird from pecking at the window.


Who doesn't love Maxine? I think some of the things she says are hilarious, and yet others, are flat out right on the money... which is sad sometimes! Anyway I got this email at work and thought it was too cute not to share so here you go :) Have a good Saturday morning laugh on me... or well Maxine :)
