5-1-2013 I can't believe it's been over a year since my last post. What a slacker - yeesh!! Ü All I can say is...get ready for Update-A-Palooza!!! I'm going to get caught up by posting all the photos from the last year or so first and will then go back and journal each entry later. Ü

Sometimes you feel like a nut...

ACORNS! No, not the corrupt, election-stealing, aiding and abetting, supposed non-profit group all over the news as of late. (I'll save that rant for another day) I'm talkin' about the actual nut (fruit or seed if you prefer) that comes from the AWESOME oak tree.  They've been dropping like crazy the past couple weeks.  And if the wind is blowing, you gotta watch out because they become little missiles - HA!  I collected a few from each of the different Oaks we have around our neighborhood the other day...

















The ones on the far right are from my favorite oak tree - the Live Oak.























But you know what is the greatest thing about acorns??  The crunch and pop you hear & feel as you smash them with your shoe.  LOVE IT!

I love that sound also. We were out riding bikes and Ellee told me that it was winter because she could hear the sound of "crunching leaves and nuts". What a warped sense of winter my little texican kids have.

You are a bit crazy Trish!! I think my Ele takes after you because she LOVES To smash snails. Yes, SNAILS!! I wish it was acorns because then there wouldn't be such an disgusting slimy mess on the sidewalk that I have to clean up. DRIVE HEAVING as I do it too:D I will admit that I LOVE the sound eggs smashing on the sidewalk or cars or A-holes houses that hurt my sisters. HEEEEHEEEEE!
