Spring has sprung! Some of our random blooming...

Today I planted seeds in our garden! Patrick has been spending the last few weeks putting together this automatic drip system. He has now officially proved his manhood and pride of home ownership! Actually, he has done a really good job, and is always anxious to work on it. Hopefully in a few weeks we'll have sprouts we can post.
I made a leprechaun cake for St. Patrick's day. After eating 3 pieces and realizing that Patrick wouldn't be helping, I sent him to the trash. Better than getting drunk for the holiday I guess. We did go to a neighbor's for some GREAT corned beef and cabbage though. (Sounds gross -tastes good)
Speaking of eating...


Payson is eating "solids" these days. (Well, whenever I need a good chuckle watching his confused and concerned face as he slowly gums whatever I put in his mouth.) He enjoys applesauce, oatmeal, peas, and bread. We got the eddie bauer edition of high chairs for him -only the best for our child... :) Okay, I just think it's really pretty and that it looks good with our dining table!The downside -or- out every side - of feeding Payson solids. Boy is he getting some new "business" "down there" -smelly and messy. This has been the biggest blowout yet. We're so proud.


We spent Easter at Dave & Jenni Johansen's. Jenni's mom Lynn made a clove ham just for Patrick. Desert was decorating cake easter eggs and bunnies. Jenni's were by far the best, so we told her she had to eat them all -she is 7 months pregnant afterall!

We played "the bean game" aka Bonanza, where I for the first time didn't lose by a landslide. It's a really fun game -I recommend it to all!

I don't know if the poop shot was really necessary.

Cool cake! I'm impressed. I like that you had to throw it away . . . so many of our desserts get thrown out b/c I can't just let it rest on the counter. Either its in my mouth or in the garbage! Sounds like you guys are having fun. Tell Payson to take it easy on the sweet potatoes -- whoa!

Hey!! We moved from Utah in June, so we've been out here for almost a year. We probably will only be here for another 8 months. Matt is in a training program until Nov. Then who knows! Looks like you guys are doing great!
It is still cold here....never ending.
