Getting Back To Normal...

It only seems like it has been a few days since I last posted I didn't realize how much time had past, OOPS! We have has a lot of fun and exciting things going on the last few weeks. Both of my sisters came to visit, one from Hawaii and one from Minnesota. It was great to have them here and we managed to go a whole week with no arguments, which in our family is a small miracle! Both sisters and both sets of grandparents came to help us celebrate the little one's FIRST BIRTHDAY! It is so hard to believe that she is already one!

The Birthday Girl April 22, 2009

I think she has grown just a little!

For her birthday we had a small brunch for the family, Evelyn really enjoyed her birthday cupcake! It was the first really sweet treat that we have let her have, which we will not be doing again anytime soon because I think she still has not come down from the original sugar high! Yikes!

In other news the garden project is really coming along. All of my plants have doubled in size and my roses are actually starting to make a comeback after last years transplant.

We also got our new camera in the mail yesterday which I am so excited about! It is a Canon Rebel and I could not be happier with it! It is so amazing to me that I can now take photos inside my house at anytime of day without using the flash! It is definitely going to take some practice and I think I might have to read the instruction manual eventually but so far so good! The picture below is a test shot with the new camera!

Happy Thursday! More garden pictures coming soon!

Garden Project Day 1

Evelyn supervising the project from the shade.

We planted green and yellow squash, red and green bell peppers, tomatoes, and jalapenos.

With the help from leftover playground edging we made a nice size raised garden in the only fairly sunny corner of our yard.

We also used some leftover pots we had to plant a few things. Here's hoping that the green thumb kicks in!

Somebody Loves the Easter Bunny

Today we took the little one to visit the Easter Bunny. It went surprisingly well. Here we were, expecting lots of tears and protesting but she really seemed to enjoy it! I'm sure the poor soul in the costume was relieved at least one of the kids who sat on his lap today didn't cry!

Rosalina Sale...

So as usual for the first day of the rosalina sale it is pouring cats and dogs, but I braved the rain and got two really cute outfits for the little one.

I can't wait to see her in them this summer!
