... exciting announcement!

My exciting announcement is that I've been called to be the 1st counselor in my ward Relief Society. We're a brand new presidency. I'm pretty excited about it. However, I haven't been given my list of responsibilities yet either. I feel really blessed to be able to be in this presidency with some really great ladies. I just need to remember that the Lord knows our talents and abilities and I need to rely on him to do his work.

I bet some of you thought I was pregnant huh? ha ha ha ha... I wish.


This is our 2nd summer in our house and I've decided that we're having a garden this year. Now, my mother always had a fairly productive garden when I was growing up but I never helped her or learned anything. So... needless to say I'm doing this blind. I also decided to buy the plants was too expensive for us and to save money I just bought little seed packets. The following is the beginning of my gardening 101. 

I decided to start my seeds inside. So, I used an egg shell carton to plants my seeds in and then I'll transfer whenever we get the garden tilled and the weather decided to start taking it's bi-polar medication again. 


Their all planted and ready for mr. sun to make an appearance. So, we wait...

and we sew a little dress for easter...

...and we learn some new trick to cause trouble!

Everyone in the house get sick.

We celebrate Daddy's birthday!

and wait,

and wait...

and then BAM! we have little sprouts and the keep getting bigger and bigger. We have quite a few green bean plants, some lettuce, one pumpkin plants, zucchini, and some celery just broke through the soil too.
We're on our way to our very first garden!!!
