Yard Work

Landscaping in front of the house. Looks soooo much better than nothing. See, the drought the previous 2 years killed our shrubbery. So we had the dead removed and I tried to figure out what to do there. Now, there's Japanese Boxwood, Bleeding Hearts, Nandina, hostas, ferns and coral bell. Also, there's one rhododendron. Still more work to be done in the rest of the front yard and we are getting an estimate for a stone patio in the back. Love to be able to work in the yard!

updated email account for new address. (I didn't change anything...they did...ugh)

I also completed a painting earlier this year. One of the few I've done just because.

Easter pictures

So, it's been a while. I've been busy. With, you know, the normal stuff. Clean the house, do the laundry, and now that it's that season, mowing the lawn. oh, and spring break was last week, not to mention Easter. I did not decorate at all for it. Usually I'll bring out my few things, but they just didn't make it out. We are never home on Easter, so it isn't high on my priority list. Enjoy some pictures from Easter!

Megan's dress and matching dress for Am. Girl doll I started last year, but was too big, so finished it for this year. It had a matching coat, which is always good with our unpredictable spring weather.

Me and kids after the church egg hunt. Craig tied for most eggs found and won a chocolate cross.
