Little Working Birds

My mom and dad came for a quick visit. They were here just about long enough to plant a couple of garden boxes for my brother and I. It was great to have their help because I don't know the first thing about gardening.

We planted onions, carrots, cilantro, broccoli, beans, and the peppers will have to go in later. We also designated a whole box to strawberries.

We just bought tomato plants and left them in their pots and disguised them into the landscape.

So our working birds flew through here and left, but now we just have to figure out how to keep the real birds away. They are building nests EVERYWHERE! I am so afraid that they are going to eat my strawberries if, I mean when they grow.

Everytime I curse the birds my kids remind me that it is illegal to harm them so does anyone know how to keep the birds away?

Apparently my little moose had good reason for his grouchy mood on Sunday. He has come down with a virus that has caused his whole body to break out into a rash. These pictures don't do any justice to how awful it looks. It looks like hives in some areas, but in others it is just swollen puffy red. He is still very lively and he doesn't have a fever or anything. Poor guy just has a case of the spots.

It's Mother's Day But...

The mothers in my life

My Mother-in-Law is a constant example to me and my kids of service and selflessness. She is full of unconditional love for all of her kids and grand kids. Sheila it is your turn to kick your feet up today and just know that we are thinking of you. We love you and appreciate you for all of your thoughtful, selfless, love that you share with us.

My mother is the hardest working woman I know. She is constantly accomplishing amazing goals in academics and career. She is a wonderful example to me of hard work and endurance. She also has a huge heart! I have learned so much from her in the way of charity and giving. Mom thank you for all that you continually do for me and my family. Relax. Don't work for 1 day. And have "just a spoon full of sugar." :)

Where a Kid Can Be a Kid!

We celebrated our big 6 year old's birthday this weekend by taking his best friends to the one and only Chuck E Cheese's.
