You So Ugli
I am all about trying new fruit or vegetables. I was in the produce section this past week and saw this display with these ugly fruits on them. I really didn't know that they were called Ugli fruits. I wasn't going to buy it. It basically looks like a rotted piece of fruit someone left on the ground. But the produce lady was there and she assured me that they were delicious. So I bought one (1.99) and took it home. It has sat on my counter for about a week. I subconsciously just couldn't peel it and eat it. I mean, look at this thing. So finally this morning I got up to make breakfast for Corey and I peeled it. Corey and I were so surprised. This thing is awesome. I think the lady said it was a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. It was so juicy it was flying everywhere. I loved it. The only downfall is the huge seeds like an orange and the sections do have tough skin on the outside. You could sit and chew them I guess, but I opted to take the skin off and just eat the inside. You should really try it....... yummy good.
Logan is my little helper. He is willing to do anything that I ask him. He is so loving and mild mannered. He also can get his feelings hurt easily. And boy does he love his Grandma.
Gabe to put it mildly is WILD. He has always been moving and grooving since he was born. He is our stubborn child and is very aggresive. Always thinks he is the best at everything. He is the only one he even slightly resembles mom.
Lexie is our girly girl. She loves make-up and painting her fingernails. She has a mind of her own and thinks she can do what she wants when she wants. She is always the one who tests our authority as parents. But she loves her Dad and can wiggle out of just about anything.
What a sweetheart. Very quick to smile at anyone willing to make a fool out of themselves. She has become very attached to mom and I think mom really enjoys it. She requires A LOT of attention all the time. Mom really only gets a break while she is sleeping or being entertained by someone else. What a sweet addition to our growing family.
Our 5th and final miracle. Danni has already been such a joy to our family. Even with long nights and busy days she has blessed our lives. We are so excited to see what kind of person she will grow up to be.
