Crazy Post

This is Brian and this is a crazy post!

Check out this photo of Johnny:




















Isn't he awesome?! He is sporting a Peruvian made hat that says MERRELL, has ear flaps, and thingy on top.

Here is an awesome video of Johnny in one of his new suits: video

Crazy, huh?!

Oh yeah, and the craziest thing of all ... Caroline went to the doctor this afternoon for an ultrasound and he sent her home with a cute little picture of our "baby girl." It is labeled "extremities" and highlights something that is unmistakable and rhymes with ping pong. I am thinking that maybe we should name her Richard.

new camera

I think it's time for a new one of these...

The way my photos are turning out these days, I feel like I'm using this one...

I need some camera intervention, folks! So friends, any suggestions? What should I get?! What camera do you use? I need something nice, that can be used by a complete novice (we're talking fool-proof!) and that's not going to cost me my second-born child. And it would really help if it was indestructible and waterproof and so ugly and unappealing that Johnny doesn't want to rip it out of my hands every time I try to take his picture ;) !

Give me some feedback! I'm tired of being jealous of your gorgeous photos.

And if I have to beg.... I will.

We are missing out on major milestones here in the Merrell household. Like the day that Brian gave Johnny a mullet because I couldn't bear to part with the curls in the back...






See what I mean?

Our Trip to Idaho

Welcome to the farm.

First thing that we did was our chores.


Next we had a triple birthday party for Briggs, Eli, and Johnny.
With Monster Truck Cupcakes (thanks Connie).
That Johnny LOVED!


We also celebrated the Fourth of July with a big fat cake.
And an awesome parade in Melba.
Last of all we played a lot.

Johnny decided that he is a little farmer.

Girls in white dresses

... with blue satin sashes;
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes;
Silver-white winters that melt into springs;
These are a few of my favorite things.


We are having a girl!
