Kate's gone blog-crazy

More pictures of John skinning trees




This is Kate squirrel hunting...the lazy way. No, she's not shooting straight up. It's just a pellet gun to sting a little and hopefully scare the squirrel family into moving to a different tree, away from the dogs. Otherwise, the dogs howl all day long at this one tree.

Squirrel hunting and tree skinning? I think you two have finally lost it...or become totally redneck....

Then

During the last few weeks of pregnancy, Kate listened to Brad Paisley's new song "Then". She didn't just listen to it a few times, she obsessively played the song on repeat, learned every word, and sung it at the top of her lungs while driving. Then one day a few weeks after Kaylee was born, Kate was driving with Kaylee by themselves. Kaylee began to cry...then scream. It didn't matter how much Kate reassured her, pulled over to make sure something wasn't wrong, or attempted to hold the pacifier in place with one arm backwards while driving. It finally occurred to Kate that maybe Kaylee wants mommy to sing to her (although no one else would want this!). So Kate put track #4 on and began to sing. Kaylee immediately calmed down. Low and behold, it's not even mommy's singing that Kaylee likes! It's Brad's!
