Garden 2009

Each year Scott tries to grow a garden. (I say Scott, because I do not like to garden) I especially HATE weeding! Scott doesnt particularly like weeding either so most years we loose lots of crops to weeds.

This year we heard about square foot gardening and we thought we would invest a little money to buy the supplies to try it.
Oh my GOSH!!!! It works great! Our plants....from seed....are doing AWESOME. I swear they double in size each day......
.....and guess what..................NO WEEDS!!!! AMAZING.

Thanks Scott for doing this. I cant wait to harvest and eat our veggies!
Oh yeah.... Miss M. loves to help Daddy in the garden too.

Look what I found

I found this great blog/website with awesome handmade jewelry. I like this necklace and pretty much everything she sells. I wouldnt object to receiving something from her as a gift on my birthday. (hint, hint)
I thought it would be cool to learn to make it or something similar, but it would be so far down on my project list that I would never get to it. Maybe someday....
You can see other cool necklaces here.

My new favorite pic...

Today we spent the day working in the yard. Maggie had the time of her life, playing in the dirt and then the sprinklers. I think the look on her face says it all. She absolutely LOVES her big brother and they had so much fun playing in the water today.

Happy Birth Mothers Day

I know this is a late post, this day is almost over, but I cant let the day end without expressing my love and gratitude for Maggie's Birth Mother. I am excited to celebrate my 2nd Mothers day tomorrow and that would not be possible without the strength and courage of another mother who made an incredible sacrifice. She selflessly made a choice to place Maggie with our family. My life changed forever that day 15 months ago when we received the news that Maggie was here and her Birth Mother had chosen me to be her mother. I love Maggies Birth Mother and I graciously welcome her into our family. She is sweet, kind and gentle, but she is also strong and courageous. I can only hope that Maggie will also have such wonderful attributes. Not a day goes by that I dont think of her. So on this very important day I thank her from the bottom of my heart.

Happy Birthday Jaxon!

Last night at around 11:30pm we got the call that Laurie Jo's water had broke and that they were on the way to the hospital. We went to bed fully expecting it to take a while and that we would see baby sometime in the afternoon. Well, we received the phone call at 4:00am annoucing that Jaxon had been born! Wow, that was fast! We all went to the hospital today to meet him. He's pretty darn cute!

Here are the stats --- 6lbs 7oz and 19in long.
Maggie thought he was pretty cool. She gave him loves and it lasted just about a minute until she wanted to take the blanket off and see the rest of him.
Scott is a proud grandpa. Yup, thats right kids, Scott is now a Grandpa!! I however am NOT a grandma :) .
