Hoppy Easter!!










Happy Easter Everyone! Eli, Ethan and I went to church in the morning and ate pot roast for lunch. We spent the afternoon gardening. Here's an update on our flowerbed:



The flowers weren't growing fast enough so we bought some! But there is still hope for the little ones. We don't think any of the bulbs will make flowers this year. Hopefully next year. The big green leafy ones in back are green beans we just tossed in there! We also think there might be some sunflowers growing! Time will tell.



Here are the tomato, peppers and green beans:

We bought cages for the tomatoes because they are getting so big. We can't wait to harvest our "crop" and let Ethan have his first taste of home grown food!

Bird feeder update: We replaced the two bird feeders the squirrels broke. We bought some 100lb wire to hang them up with! Eli said if the squirrels chew through it he would buy them a bag of sunflower seeds and hand feed them!

How did you do that? (Lose all that weight). You all look so wonderful!!

I think he really looks like both of you. I always recognize Eli in the smile, but I think his eyes are...Mommy's.

Weight Watchers! Eli has lost weight too. He's doing low carb. My Mom is a WW leader so I get lots of encouragement from her!
