Here is Tucker goofing off!
There was silly string in the goody bags. We were covered with it.
Brianna and Shauna are the birthday girls! And boy did they love Carter!
Tucker and I at the garage sale before T-Man went to school.
Tucker took this picture of Daddy heading off to work.
This is my house. Built in the early 1800s. The original owner of the house was "Old Goat" Charlie. He was a crotchety old goat farmer. His Great Great Grandson came to the garage sale. I learned a lot about the house and I heard some great family stories.
This is Jeff's cousin's little girl Aniya. She is so petite. Just a wisp compared to the tank called Carter.
Yep, a great weekend indeed. And it doesn't end there folks. Jeff is off to a beer tasting tonight. And tomorrow night I am headed to the Melting Pot for some fondue then off to see Sex in The City. A woman's dream night. And even better...I won a 20 minute foot rub from Jeff in a bet. I love being right all of the time!

Tucker stopped chasing Jeff long enough to hop on the lawnmower with Daddy.
Carter Morris aka Blues Brother #3
Jeffs cousin Matt and his daughter Melynda went to the Memorial Day Parade with us. We parked at Uma and Upa's house and walked to the parade.
Mommy is in a picture!!! Yeh, I know it's from the side. The one of me head on, is not very good.
This policeman was nice enough to pose for a picture with T-Man. This better be the only time Tucker has a run-in with the law.
Isn't Melynda precious?
Even when Carter eats his bottle he is adorable.
And last but certianly not least. This is the latest picture of Poppy. Marc and Amanda got another update on her. I hear that she has 2 teeth and is a bit shy. Man is she adorable? I cannot wait to meet her. So, I will continue to work on my photography skills and document our fun little lives. Summer...she is a com'n!

So first we have the Nikon D60 shot.
Now my old camera, which is less than a year old, and will remain nameless. Check out the color difference on the play mat. The old camera looks so muddy.
Tucker and I decided to take a few pictures before school today. And Tucker found "his flower" or "my weed". He was completely in awe and couldn't wait to get blowing.
There he goes!!!
Okay Mom, enough pictures. I am ready for the school bus to come.This is how Tucker fell asleep last night. He just got his new bean bag yesterday. I'd say he loves it!
And I would like to Congratulate Matt, Jen, and Melynda on the newest addition to their family. Brayden Mathew who weighed in a whopping 10lbs 3oz. Way to go Jen!!!!!
And last but not least. Daddy and Carter are such a cute pair. Hey...why are there never any pictures of me and my children. Well, that's going to change. Jeff is going to learn how to use the Nikon.
All is well in the Morris household. Jeff and I have been working and the boys are still the cutest kids I have ever seen. We have been working outside on the yard and finishing up the boy's rooms. The weather here has been obscenely cold. It has been going down into the high 30's and low 40's during the night. It has only reached about 55 during the day. Isn't this supposed to be spring. I look forward to going home to VA in the beginning of June. It will be nice and warm down there and I will be with my whole family. I want to send out a great big Congratulations to my brother Mason who is graduating high school on the 14th of June. CONGRATS BRO!

Carter-Man just loooooves his bath time now. And how blue can blue get? Our old camera wasn't this clear.
Uncle Marc and Aunt Amanda came over last night for a little dinner and fun. That would be Aunt Amanda in the background bowling on our Wii. Great fun had by all. We did Wii fit test and tested our fit age. I was 36 and Jeff was 37. Certain people who shall remain nameless were in their 50's. Tucker is holding a plush picture frame that Amanda and Marc got at Amanda's work baby shower. It is so cute, it has several different pictures of people saying "My Poppy", then a picture of Marc and Amanda and it says "Okay, she's your Poppy". I thought that was such a cute idea.So you will have to keep track of how my photography gets better. I hope!

Another great thing coming up in our lives, is a trip to Virginia in the beginning of June for my brother's high school graduation. Yes, high school. We are going down a week early to spend the week at my grandparents river cottage. I grew up there every weekend since I was born. I cannot wait. We are going to have a great time. Maybe we will even teach Tucker how to ski. Well, why not? I learned when I was four. We'll see!

We also surprised Amanda and Marc with a birthday cake for Poppy's 1st Birthday. Even though she isn't here with us in person, she is in our hearts and we know that we will celebrate many more birthdays with her as the years go by. We will just have to let her make a mess of her 2nd birthday cake, so Marc and Amanda can experience getting icing out of hair, and being up until 2am from the sugar.
Move over Blues Travelers! The Morris' are in the house. Tucker, Henry, and Sidney started jamm'n in the kitchen. Oh the sweet music of children...is sure to give you a migraine.
Cowboy Tucker was tuckered out, and decided to take a little rest. So he tied up his pony, tipped his hat down, and was fast asleep before you could say "Wild Bill Hiccup".
And at last, some brotherly love. But check out Tucker's new haircut. Spiffy I think!
