Haven Monday

I have decided to try Crystal's Making You Home a Haven Monday Go on over to her Blog to see more!

1) Refresh Your Spirit (5 minutes)

Three things I am thankful for:
1. Our home, although we don't own it and it is small, I love that we have a big garden and it is still cheeper than most housing around here!
2. My family. My parents and in-laws for helping us through our hard times! My silly kids and working husband.
3. My true friends who are there when I need them.

2) Take Time to Plan (5 minutes)

My to do list:
1. Laundry room. I need to make room for the dog crates. The 4th is coming and and our dog need a safe place to be quiet.
2. Livingroom clean and vacuumed
3. All dishes done and put away

Dinner tonight: Spaghetti, garlic bread, and salad
(the meat is thawing right now)

Before and after pics of the laundry room to come later!

Oh me, oh my.....we have a crawler!

Look what Lillie did today! Please excuse my gross carpet, yes I know it needs a good cleaning!

I can't believe my baby is growing up! ;(

And the funny thing is ... it isn't even her bottle. It's her cousins, but she wanted it so bad!

More on Gardening (Part 2)

Joseph and I planting the front yard. We also added steps because the kids all think it is okay to walk through the flowers. Hopefully now they will walk on the stepping stones.
Say cheese! I got so sunburned that day!
Here are the boys filling up there wheel barrows.
Lillie enjoying the beautiful day.
Andrew learned how to drive the tractor. The boys had a great time and daddy slept well that night! Our garden kept growing and growing. Now it's about 1/2 of our back yard and I love it. Next we plant and make a fence to keep the dogs out!

Our garden this year (Part 1)

What do you do when you get dirt? Ofcource, you build a graden.

First you till the ground...

And then you build the beds. Thanks to Casey and Casey's dad they got them done quickly!

When the beds are done, hire the boys to fill them. We paid them with pats on the back and lots of kisses!

What a happy helper!
