A Few of my Favorite Things….

 

For some reason, the song ” A Few of my Favorite things” from The Sound of Music, has been running through my head, non stop, for three days…..

 

Don’t know if it’s the season or hormones, but I decided the only cure was to share some of my favorite things….

 

If the song gets stuck in your head, maybe it will get out of mine…. not that it’s such a bad song, but come on, three days?!?!

My girls, my sisters, my friends…. ladies, what would we do without girlfriends?? 

We’d probably go postal alot sooner!!

 

 

 

 My little punks…. Man, I’m crazy about these kids…..here they are pretending to be city kids in CA….. they only look normal….

The look on my little ones face?

Yeah, that’s normal….for her anyway….she lives in purple fairyland where it’s all rainbows and dewdrops…..Honey, can I come too?

The view from our arena— I would love to take credit for this picture, but I can’t–

My litt100_0221le Kodak camera cannot keep up with my punk little sister’s Nikon d40— hence, my coveting for which I have to repent on a daily basis…

 

But this is part of our crazy herd…they love kicking their heels up after a good rain…I love watching them run…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 And last, budsc_0019t NOT least, my handsome husband…..in chaps……pardon me while I go and take a cold shower…..
