Sprite's vocabulary has really been exploding lately. Just now as I am sitting here at the computer drinking my coffee, I hear Sprite squeal...
"Whoa- bro, you nakey!"
I refrain from spitting coffee out of my mouth and turn to see Sprout emerge from his bedroom butt naked!
The Hubs and I bust out laughing.
"What, I was feeding the fish," he explains!
I don't know what was more funny, the fact that this might be Sprite's first 4 word sentence or the fact that Sprout is turning out to be an exhibitionist!

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -We are the champions
No time for losers 'Cause we are the champions - of Cornhole.
And for those of you who don't know what cornhole is, get your head out of the sand and smell the corn!

Welcome to our home...
Can I get you something to drink? I make a mean Margarita. Or perhaps you would prefer a cup of cream with a splash of coffee this early in the morning?
Aspen is getting old and doesn't like the hardwood floors so he lays on the area rugs!
Perhaps my favorite room in the house...
It sure beats heading outside to the shed in the back of the carport to do laundry!!!
Come on upstairs, it is unfinished right now but we have grand plans for this space...
You probably don't care to see the garage but if you do, here is the door to the garage...
And this, my friends, is why I love North Carolina.
View from the Rockers...
View from Wrap Around Porch...
and my hammock under the tree...
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed your visit. You are welcome any time. My kids are still loud! Or was it fierce? Oh, who cares- I can't hear them from the hammock under the tree anyway, especially after a good Margarita, but feel free to bring your earplugs just in case. The bugs aren't nearly as bad as they were in Alabama so you can forgo the bug nets on this visit! Hope to see you again soon!

"The origin of North Carolina's nickname is grounded, at least in part, in one of the state's major products during the Colonial Era -- tar. The tar was made by slowly burning the wood of longleaf pine trees. One legend attributes the name to the laborers who walked out of the woods with the sticky black substance on their shoes. Other stories go back to the Revolutionary War, when North Carolina soldiers continued marching after wading through a river coated with the viscous liquid." (Yahoo.com)
Yes, I am alive- but barely! I have just crawled out from under the 14, 620 boxes that needed to be unpacked.
