First bonfire at our house!

We had our first bonfire at our house the other night. Addison got to stay up late and enjoy it to. It was a nice way to end a fun day with the kids! Ryan though was in bed by 7 and missed it!

Got a visit from the neighbors dog

Hopefully many more bonfires to come!

Valances in the kitchen

We have owned our home for almost 2 years, and in that time I never got around to getting valances up in the kitchen.  My mom and I bought fabric for it, but only made one and it never went up! So I decided to finally do something about it!!  There are 2 more windows done the same way as well.

This is the before

And the after!

This is the link to the page that I got the idra from Momtastic  No Sew Valances

We're in trouble! Ryan is starting to army crawl every where!

I found him under our kitchen table! But oh he's so cute!

This is better! He's penned up in the pack and play! His grandma is already helping him stand in it!

Prepping our Veggie Garden

So today was a day with no kids here, my wonderful mom took them for day, so Seth and I decided to get lots done around the house, namely our veggie garden!  In just a few weeks we will finally be able to plant.  Last year was our first year doing a garden and it was 8 by 8, in the fall we expanded it to 8 by 24.  Today we had to get soil in the 2 new sections we added.

We started our day by going to Home Depot, and take a look at our very loaded down Envoy.  Not everything was for the garden, but most of it was.

Last fall after growing season was done we pulled out all the plants that were in there, then put in mulched leaves and covered it with black plastic for the winter. So this is what we started with this morning.

uncovered for the first time in almost 7 months

1st of two square yards of top soil that Seth went and got with our truck, it was loaded down!

Spreading all the dirt, humus and peat moss

All done!  We covered it back up with the black plastic till we are ready to plant, to keep weeds and grass from growing in it.  We will have to work it up a bit again when we plant because it will settle a little before we plant.

Plant update

Been a bit busy lately and have been sick so I haven't had a chance to blog in the past week or so.  Here is a picture of how our plants that we started just over 2 weeks ago are doing! They are well on their way!
