Trivia Tuesday!!

Trivia Tuesday has returned!!! :)
The trivia for this week is:
Part of our family was spending the day with friends freezing corn. After we finished our work, we loaded up in our bus to come home. While we were saying goodbye, someone noticed that we had a very low, almost flat rear tire. Our friends had a air hose and offered to air up the tire so we could drive to a nearby town to get it fixed. One of our boys got under the bus and to fill up the tire. Now, we have 4 tires on the rear of our bus-- two on each side. He found it difficult to navigate the hose to the right spot between the tires to reach the air valve, but after some fiddling, he was able to get a good connection and began airing up the tire. After a few minutes, when the tire was sufficiently filled, he disconnected the hose and proceeded to sit up--but wait. Calmly, he looked up at the crowd of spectators and quietly said "I'm stuck." His left arm had been positioned between the two tires to hold the hose in place. But as the deflated tire had filled up, it had wedged his arm tightly inbetween the tires!! After letting the air back out of the tire, he was able to free his arm (to the great relief of his mother)! :)
The question is, of course; which Ulmer boy was it???

Anson Boys!

When William was born, Mom and I were able to spend a few days with the Ansons. What a treat to have some time with their sweet little boys while Mommy got plenty of rest! The boys were great helpers; making supper, going shopping for groceries, drying dishes and taking out the trash. And of course, there was plenty of time for wrestling, reading books, tickling, laughing and taking trips to the park!!
God has abundantly blessed Scott & Lydia and they have done an excellent job of training their little men!
Those blue eyes!!!! Wow!

Pauly & Marcus!

Happy Philip!!

"Here Philly-Billy, I will peel the grape for you. Ummmm....Aunt Elizabeth, I accidentally 'eated it', can you get me another grape??"

Breakfast time!

Grandma Sue, Will & Nana!

Brand-new nephew!!

Brushing Nana's hair.

Paul, being grown up.

Brotherly Love!

"Look Aunt Elizabeth!!!"

Maybe he was hungry, or maybe he just liked chewing on the scratchy rope!

Paul has mastered the monkey bars!! What muscles!


Paul was my big helper!

Philip finally warmed up to me and started smiling!

Paul is a climber-- he wants to be as HIGH as possible!

Little grins!

Climbing up the slide takes concentration!
There are few things more precious then holding a new baby for the first time!!
Big Brother for the 1st time!!

Marcus & Will!

Big Brother for the 3rd time!
(Be watching for continued updates and new pictures!! I am (very slowly!!!) getting caught up on all my over-due blogging!!!)
