Guess what I got in the mail?!

I ordered my blog from Blog2Print in book format. ~WOW~
I love it.
I ordered the hardcover and because I did two whole years in one book it is super long.

The kids love reading it and I love having a scrapbook/journal for us to share our memories.  

It is also good motivation to start blogging more consistently.  Reading it with the kids has helped us remember so much of God's abundant blessings.

Thank you God for sunshine

We are loving our warm weather!
We took these over a week ago but it was too fun a day to forget :)

Our Garden

It is modest, I know, but to us it is just heavenly :)  We have not been able to have a garden in a few years due to moving in the middle of the summer - every year.
We repurposed an old coffee table after some brainstorming.

We took off the top, poked holes in the bottom and then put screen in to keep the dirt from leaking out.

I have some pretty ecstatic kiddos.  Caleb planted corn, Kadin planted sweet peas, and Bailey planted watermelon.

My tomato, yellow peppers and lemon cucumbers.

The girls decided they really just wanted pretty flowers - pink of course :)

Our Skandian Ship

We love reading books aloud.  One of the most dangerous stores for my husband and I are book stores.  Right now we are reading The Brotherband Chronicles by  John Flanagan.

We love all of his youth books.
When I saw this wooden model at the store I couldn't help getting it for the boys because it made me think of the books.

The boys had a blast putting it together.
