Just some pictures

We have had a few posts pretty recently but no new pictures so I thought we better put some up. Hope everyone enjoys them!

Just laying around with Mom.

This was Abby's idea, everyone thought is was funny but Duke.

Abby was helping me fix something on our porch when she tripped and hit her nose on one of our patio chairs. Well it resulted in a bloody nose, but she handled like a champ.
Most likely watching "Elmo Opposites" for millionth time.

Best Mother's day present EVER!

I haven't posted anything recently because I haven't taken any pictures recently but Mother's day and my birthday have come and gone and I figured I should write something so I hope you all enjoy this Mother's Day TRUE story that happened with our little family.

Before I continue, I must apologize to my husband because this might embarrass him but this is the funniest thing that has happened to me in a long while. SORRY JAY!

Mother's day was a somewhat brisk day but clear enough and warm enough for the Peterson family to grill steaks outside so, while waiting for the coals to warm up, we decided to play outside with Abby. Since we don't have our own backyard, we like to get Abby outside as much as possible when she goes to grandma's and grandpa's. I was sitting sipping my wine on the porch and Jason and Abby had been exploring down under the pine tree's at the edge of the yard. While I was sipping my wine I thought to myself, "Maybe I should go monitor what she's doing under that tree ... NAH, it's mother's day, I should just sit down and relax, Jason's got it." I continued to sip my wine and chat with my brother and 5 minutes later I hear Jason say, "I don't know what that is, go show it to Mommy."

Interesting, what could this be that she's bringing me? Pine Cones, Pine needles, Sticks ... all things she's fascinated with. Abby trots up to me with her hand closed. I held out my hand for her to drop what was enclosed in her little fist into mine. Out drops 4 little balls of brown into my hand. I honestly had to think twice about it. Did she just put rabbit poop into my hands? Did Jason just let her pick up rabbit poop? Did Jason really not know what rabbit poop looks like? Too many questions and to much time holding the poo I whisked Abby into the bathroom to wash our hands. EEEEWWwwwwwww. Good steaks though. Happy Mother's Day.

PS, Jason says it's still up for debate on if those little brown balls were really rabbit poo or not.
