Oh yeah...bare chest works just fine.

Yannie and her little polka dot swim suit, four pairs of undies, and round baby tummy is just too cute, even if she's a frog killer!
Love the redneck swimming pool.


Please alert the scientists at OSU as to the real reason Oregon Spotted Frogs are close to extinction!

I thought all Red Necks lived in Texas! ha.

Y'all just have way too much fun no matter what you do....beatin' up frogs....igloo watering hole....secret handshakes.....swimming in your Lucky jeans!

You know how to capture the very essence of every event, Karen Russell. Love that!!!


I thought you were using the cooler for a bathtub!! And that panty stealing, frog murderer, polka dot bikini wearer, WHAT are you going to do with her?! She is just too dang cute! And that Courtney, she's a cutie too. Love the face on that last one...I have a similar shot of my daughter soaking her daddy with that same squirt toy!


Frog killer, with her murder weapon!! HAHAHA, I just love the way you put things!!
Once again, you have the most adorable family, and I just love reading about all your adventures!

I love your pics. You have the cutest kids ever. Seriously. :)


I have to laugh at the bare chest thing. The other day I didn't post a pic on my blog because dh had a bare chest. I didn't want to offened anyone, but I totally didn't think anything of it when I saw your picture of your dh with a bare chest, until I read the sentence under the picture.

I work at Sonic Drive-In in good ole Tennessee & tonight my manager had the oregon state/usc game on espn on the internet. As soon as I realized it was, in fact, the Beavers that you talk so dearly about, I knew your family had to be having an incredible night. Glad to see them beat the number 1 team!


always love your great!
and PS...from one Coley to another..GO BEAVERS!
(what a game last night huh? My Cole was freaking out..and of course wore his Orange to school AGAIN today(which is kind of a cardinal sin here on Fridays in Nebraska when everything is SUPPOSE to be RED. lol)
