MY GREATEST BLESSINGS

Call me GRANDMA!
We enjoyed an evening in a hotel with a swimming pool.

We were there to celebrate our oldest grandsons ordination to the Aaronic Priesthood.
Two adjoining hotel rooms, lots of running, two pizzas and two hours worth of Puss 'n Boots...
and then....
....the sound of SILENCE!

Congratulations Josh!
We are so proud of you!
It was so fun to get together.
Howie with our oldest and youngest son.
We missed the middlest son.

AND a picture of ALL SEVEN GRANDKIDS!
Oh wait....see the bump on the right?
Make that grandbaby #8!
It was a blessed weekend.

She knows I {heart} brown bubbles.

COULD IT REALLY BE SPRING?

Last week:
Today:
I'm not complaining.
It is 64 degrees!
The "girls" aren't complaining either.
"Thanks girls!"
There's an egg in the nesting box!
(Yes, the nesting boxes have carpet)
These are some tomato and cabbage seeds I planted last week.
I'm OK with an early Spring.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESSICA!!!

How is it that you are already 6?
The first girl in a family of three older brothers.
I think you were born with a smile!
Sweet BIG brown eyes!
AND ALWAYS SMILING!!!
Well....almost always.
When you aren't smiling you are a force to be reckoned with!
Happy Birthday little Lass!
Grandchildren are such a blessing.

As a sidenote, if you feel so inclined, please go to Connie's blog and Camille's blog. They could use your prayers and love right now.

I DID WHAT?????

Today I played in the dirt.
I love dirt.
I love earth.
It was 54 degrees!
Unheard of in this frozen wasteland part of the planet.
Winter usually drags on
and on
and on.
But just for today...
I pretended that Spring is tomorrow.
I planted peas, radishes and lettuce.
It is supposed snow tomorrow
and will probably last for months...

But just for today

my hands are dirty.

And I needed that.

Define "too many".
