Mother's Day Tea

I know this is about a month old now but i'm catching up. Meg's MDO has a Mother's Day Tea every year for the 3's Department. I was so excited to get to go and see Meg sing to me, see the video they make and get our annual ME Book. Well I get in there and she is all happy to see me and they start to sing, then all of a sudden she just got unhappy. Stood there looking all sad and mad and then crossed her arms and totally would not sing. I was sitting right in front of her and she still wouldn't cooperate. And her buddy Mr L standing next to her did the exact same thing, they are two peas in a pod. Oh well, when I think about it, Lauren didn't sing either. Well they say third times a charm so maybe Ella Bella will sing to me! Here is a pic of us afterwards about to enjoy our cupcake and "tea".

It's Been Too Long

I can't believe how fast this month has gone by. I finished up my teaching, Meg is officially a Pre-K kid, Lauren is going into second grade (yikes) and Ella is almost one year old. This has been an incredibly fast year. Although I will say it seems like Meg has been 3 for forever and yet Ella is already a year older. I went on a long scrapbooking reatreat this weekend. Thursday through Sunday, it was so nice to get away. I very much needed vacation. We went to a friends lake house since our old scrap house closed its doors. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We had so much fun too! Good times! I didn't get as much done as I normally do, but I got a start on Ella's stuff so that's progress. So daddy was in charge all weekend. He did a great job, we didn't have too much extra activities this weekend so he got off easy. Let's just say though he really appreciates me more now! The girls always miss me so much when i'm gone, E really did, she didn't sleep too well but she crashed last night. Slept til 9:30 this morning, AHHH, that was nice! So off we go to our Summer of VBS, Camps, Beach trip, hanging out by the pool, water park and play dates. This summer will fly by for sure!

I'll post some pics later but just wanted to stop in.

How Does a Garden Grow?

This Spring we decided to plant a garden. I had wanted to do it last year but we never got around to it, so this year My wonderful husband got it started. He built the garden and went and got great soil then we went and bought some plants and seeds. The girls and I had a great time planing the Tomato plants, broccoli and various other plants, then Nate and I did the seeds. Everything looks like it is going well. The tomato plants and getting taller and have blooms and we even saw some broccoli, I just wasn't sure exactly when to harvest the broccoli. I really didn't expect to see "results" so soon. Sure enough by the time I got on the internet to check it out the broccoli then was turning into yellow flowers. That is way too long. So we missed our first bunch. Oh well, that's ok, they say the first of the season isn't very good anyway. We'll have to see how long it takes to produce more. This gardening thing is good in theory but if you don't have a lot of patience like I don't, it gets "boring". Here are a few pics of my lovely garden. We did plant i think too many tomato plants so once it starts producing I might be handing out tomatos every time I see you.
