Sass + Merrilee + Casey = Trouble

I'm tempted to not even provide any explanations for these pictures because they're pretty darn funny on their own. But, I'll try with a few.

The youngest punk remembered and loved Sass!

Jack took a bit longer to warm up. Grumpy, lovable Jackie.

Merrilee arrived around lunch time and we took some pretty funny pictures.

I'd like to state for the record that these were all taken before a glass of wine was finished. Promise.

Sass and Merrilee got along just fine.

Can you tell?



We were going for the romantic look under the arch in my garden. I didn't realize I was quite so into it, though.

Carter arrived home and immediately took over Sass's Ipad. He is sussesed.

Wait. Let me note that I received a call from the nurse after Carter's second visit. Poor child "hit his head on the desk". He had a headache and was wondering if he was better off at home resting?

I advised the nurse to kindly send him back to his class, refuse any more visits and remind him that Sass will be here when he returns from school.

That kid has no shame.

Sass twisted Carter's arm and took some pics with him.

And, Jack.

Sass tried to be funny and challenged Dane to a little race.

It ended badly. She had her boot stuck and was screaming for help. My immediate reaction was, "Document!"

Merrilee was standing right next to her and calmly said, "I will help you, Sass, but after Casey grabs her camera." I love Merrilee.

Awesome day, awesome lunch, fun for everyone.

Sass is leaving sunny San Diego soon and returning to the Kansas City Blizzard. Slight change. Wonder if she'll notice?

I often wonder if I would be better off resting at home....gotta love Carter!!!! Be careful, Sass might get stuck at your house another day or two....hope you have lots to drink

Great pics!! Looks like you girls had a good time.

Carter, Carter, Carter - the crush on Sass has obviously not faded. Love it.

I am jealous of your fabulous time outside!! Ahh.. it looks so nice to have lunch on the patio! Looks like you ladies had a fab time!! Love that you documented it all right down to the stuck boot. I can almost hear the laughter through the pictures.

Carter ... sweet boy!

Coco said...

You were dry humping Sass.

Looks like lots of fun! And I love Carter's crush on Sass! Too cute!

Dee Stephens said...

I was thinking about Sass and the transition. KS City is getting hit hard!
Cute pictures.. love the view in your back yard :)

Carter's visits to the nurse's office at school made me laugh. I have a child that would pull the same thing. Sass is not going to love the weather in the Midwest. You better keep her in sunny California for another day or two.

Fun times! Maybe Sass will want to stay a while longer.

Thanks for hosting such a lovely afternoon. Your backyard is blissful and serene--loved it. Note to self--do not allow yourself to be photographed from behind......especially when standing next to a SUPERMODEL!!!

Looks like a fun afternoon!

Your backyard is amazing.

Love how Carter tried to come home twice that day!

SASS said...

Love the detailed documentation of our afternoon! Casey's backyard=heaven. And her food, drinks, kids, Mer....did she mention I stayed over for 6 hours?? I couldn't leave.
Everyone needs to know Mer! I love her and bubba Dane. Except she ruins people's screen doors. Rude.
Great day, ladies! I'm currently next to the water in Coronado watching Tony change our flight ad extend our stay a bit....maybe forever?
Love ya Case & Mer!

Shannon said...

Looks fun!

Carter is a clever one. I can imagine my Blake doing the same thing...especially with the iPad!

Yes, Sass, stay out there for a while. Weather is not good. The whole eastern part of Kansas has been declared an emergency and I-70 through all of Missouri is closed.

Dawn said...

Seriously, can you and your family be any more beautiful?!?

I loved your post and pictures. Glad you all are having fun.

Jodee said...

It looks like you gals had loads of fun! Coco is such a hoot!

Merry Mack said...

Oh, Carter! Good try.

I agree I can hear the laughter in the pictures. Looks like fun.

Poor Sass. That's like torture to have to go from sunny San Diego to KC. I'm in OK and let me tell you, it's freakin' cold and we have snow up to our butts. I'm sure conditions are worse in KC.

CUTE CUTE CUTE pics! I love the way you document...a girl after my own heart.

Kelly Beatty said...

Yum! That food looks DELISH!

Kami said...

Fun pics. I love your backyard. Looks like you guys had a fun visit. I also spied Sass's Micheal Kors iPad case. That's on my wishlist!
