Spokane or BUST!

I realize I am finally sitting down to post this well after Little Miss was born, but such is life. 
In July my lovely little niece was born...Look!  Isn't she just darling!?!  She already loves me best!
Shortly after she was born I managed to jet, and I do mean jet, over the mountains to see her!  I wasn't able to when her brother was born and by golly I was gonna this time.  Killed me I couldn't for my nephew and it's so very hard for me to get over to Spokane to visit as much as I would like.  It's an actual physical pain I don't get to see them as often as I would like.  But that is life and we made do!
So I got to Spokane and spent the night at Grandma Lea and Grandpa Bob's house/farm...where my boys did what boys do.  Caused havoc and at least one is lucky to have an eyeball...*shaking head here*.  I digress...spend the night and then had a lovely breakfast and then off to see the new niece and my nephew and for cousins to play and visit with brother and his wife.  I spent the hours I was there holding Ms. Rebekah and she was warned by her daddy that I would sniff her neck...many, MANY times...and I did. 
Sigh...I miss them a lot and I can't wait until Samuel is ready to come and visit/stay for awhile at my house and of course when Rebekah is old enough too!  I really look forward to that!
So here she is, Little Miss...
Love that she has a head of hair on her...and I'm looking forward to buying cute hair things!
 I hear that will all that great Momma milk she's gone from 8lbs+ to 10lbs +!!
 See what Momma milk does to a child!  Induced coma!
 Tender-hearted Lee...many people hardly get to see this side of him.  When you do, count yourself lucky.  He really does have a heart for children.  He was the only one of my boys who asked to hold her...generally he's the only one that ever asks to hold a baby...generally.  I hold these rare and precious moments close to my heart.  That and one day he'll know I was right when I say girls really dig it when you can hold a kid and not freak out.

I will definitely be getting a print of this!
 An Auntie and niece  selfie, our first!
They are harder to take than you think...and actually I have a whole post idea on this.  Spent some time while waiting to see family trying to get a good one with my camera...I don't think I succeeded.
I, however, think this one is a good one and will get a print of this one also.

I'm so glad I was able to do this but really wish I had, had more time to stay.  Missed a birthday party for my nephew...he's one whole hand now (5) AND starting Kindergarten! He has had a very big year and coming months.  I love them so much!

Ok, off I go.  Have a good rest of the week!  I won't be on for a few days, I hope.  I will be pear and apple picking tomorrow, along with grocer shopping for camping and packing for camping....camping and then back to whatever our summer has been....OR not been.

Happy birthday Sparky!

Goose Egg is what I did for fun on Friday!  Had a blast...however I'm not sure I'll do it again.
That is my goose egg...jealous?  Yeah I knew you would be.  Want to know how to get one?  Well I'll tell you how to get one.  Help your husband load the truck up for a dump run and then get a bungee or two and help strap down said garbage.  While working on strapping things down, hold one end of the bungee while said husband works to get the other side down.  Make sure it is either hooked or it slips out of your hand, that way it can lung back at you.  THAT is how you get a goose egg like mine!  This picture was pretty much right after it happened...Frank took a picture...I thought I was bleeding profusely from my head, however that was just my head swelling.  Gorgeous!!!
Here I am later than night after an hour or so of icing it.  I had a pretty good headache going and way tender!
Now you see by Sunday night the pretty colors of the rainbow are making their appearance.  It&…
