Life is not measured by the number of

breaths we take, but by the number of

moments that take our breath away.

Crew was fascinated by the lighting from a storm we had. He kept wanting to go out side and check it out. He loved listening to the thunder and watching the lighting First thing he said the next morning was "lighting"

Yumm Yumm Krispy Kreme Doughnuts are back

How fast can you eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut?
Jenny and Crew came and stayed with us for a week and one night Jenny brought Krispy Kreme doughnuts, as you can see Crew couldn't get them fast enough or eat them fast enough. As you can see he wanted them two at a time.

Bee or not to Bee

For a couple of months now we thought we had Bees making a hive in an eve near our front west bedroom. Danny swore he saw bees outside the window, we also saw what looked like the makings of a hive or so we thought. It had been a few months and we really had not seen any further bees flying around the window, even though it appeared the hive was still lingering. My thoughts were the hive is being built inside our home and the what ifs kept going through my head. what if it is huge, what if a bee stings one of our grand kids, what if it cost us a small fortune to remove the hive. Well we lined up a bee exterminator to come out to the house. The night prior to all of our questions being answered, we investigated the scene. Danny squirted the mass, nothing happened he discovered it wasn't a hive but a nest. We took a broom and tried to get the nest dislodged. My attempts only confirmed yes it was a nest when with one attempt a birds head and only a head came tumbling out of the nest. The next time I attempted to remove the nest this is what fell out on to our driveway. Bees gone!!! Oh yea no bees I mean Nest gone bird and all!!! I have no idea how long that bird had been up in the eves dead like that.
