To have a green thumb, or not to . . .

That is the question!!!
I have decided once again to try growing a vegetable garden. I think I found an OK spot in our backyard. SO, this week Jacob and I, well, mainly me, got to work. The remnants of the oleander had been dug out by someone else, I was thankful I didn't have to tackle those roots! Anyway, after moving the rock and somewhat prepping the soil, we were ready to plant. Jacob didn't quite grasp this concept. He mostly enjoyed playing in the dirt and was oblivious to the plants - in fact sitting on one at one point. I'm sorry I don't have any photos of him helping (I can hear the groans of disappointment!) After everything was said and done I realized that I needed to keep Jacob and the dog out - the first little fence (not pictured) did not do the trick. So I made one myself and it seems to do just fine. Here are some pictures of the before and after. Hopefully in a few months I will have some vegetable bearing pictures to show you.


My garden!

The Pink Bower vine

Tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, cucumber, cantaloupe and watermelon

Little cantaloupe

First little pepper

The very sad strawberry plant that was stepped on by the dog - I'm hoping it will bounce back!

Aidan's Baptism

"'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.' And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them." Luke 18:16-17

Today we had Aidan baptized! We had an entire section filled with family supporting Aidan on his big day. In reflection on this day, Cody and I ask for your support in prayer ~ please pray that we will have all of the strenght, courage, knowledge, patience, trust, and willingness needed to raise Aidan to be a man of God.

We want to thank all of the friends and family that came to church with us today and had fun with us afterwards. Aidan is very blessed to have so many people who love him!

Easter Fun!!!

We had a very fun and busy Easter this year. The Easter Bunny visited Grammie and Papa's house on Saturday while we were decorating Easter Eggs. Then on Sunday we were up bright and early to see what the Easter bunny brought to our house, to eat breakfast with all the family, hunt eggs and go to church. That afternoon we had more fun with family!

It's only a matter of time . . . .

It's only a matter of time before Aidan is up and moving around - he rolled over for the first time today!! He rolled from front to back and it appears that he is very close to rolling from back to front. Before we know it he will be chasing his Big Brother around!!!

(Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of him rolling over and we don't have the right stuff to put a video on the blog yet, so this cute picture will have to suffice)

we have another very busy boy on our hands. It's only been a matter of time before we found something where it didn't belong. And low and behold, as I lifted the toilet seat to go to the bathroom, I found this:

I'm not sure what statement Jacob was trying to make by placing his shoe in toilet, but it is what it is. What a silly little bugger.
