Some photos, starting with the birdies

I guess they didn't get the memo that they're supposed to be on the shy side. You see that piece of white on the far left? That's my backdoor. No privacy for these birds.

Their beautiful teal colored eggs. Three so far. Mom isn't sitting on them yet so there may be more to come. She does add to the nest here and there so she hasn't abandoned them. I'm glad the photo turned out as well as it did considering I'm a shorty and had to take the photos blind.

Magnolia tree, Magnolia tree... how I love you so. Too bad your flowers last a short time before the petals fall like snow.

I really don't think there are many things prettier than an apple tree in full bloom. When the flowers begin to die, the ground becomes littered with little white and pink petals. I always thought the most gorgeous place to be married would be in an apple orchard right as the petals are beginning to fall from the trees.

Jasmine outdoors with Savannah. She basically dragged the dog in front of me, plopped down and held her while I took their picture. She tried to hold some of the other dogs there as well but she could only control one of them at a time.

My mother's day gift, which got here today. It's plumeria tree I ordered off It won't bloom for a few years and I have no idea what color the flowers will be when it does finally bloom. I think of it as a present that sits in my house till it's ready to be discovered. However, I can't wait to see what color they will be. I could've ordered one that I already knew the color of the blooms but I liked the idea of not knowing more.

Typical day at my house. I lay down to rest for a few minutes and the dog steals my pillow, the kid takes my picture and there are two cats laying behind me.... on top of each other nonetheless. I can't count the number of photos I have with Saffron laying on Isaiah.

I found this outfit last week and just had to get it for him. He actually has quite a few baseball themed shirts. However, this is the only one that still fits him. :)

She kept opening her mouth when I'd take a photo so I thought, what the hell, at least we'll be matching crazies.
Yes, that tie is just a graphic that is on the onesie. Everyone thinks this shirt is hilarious. He thinks so too I guess. It was his big sister making him laugh.

What great pictures! OMG, I love the shirt with the little tie! Wouldn't you love to find him a little tiny briefcase?! LOL! I can't believe Ms. Catbird built her nest so close to your door. Wow! At least it looks like it's under the eaves, so it should be fairly protected from the elements. Love, Beth
