Granite here we come!!!

Our granite comes Tuesday at 7am!!! So that means tonight, we completely took apart our kitchen ourselves to get ready. We thought we'd save some money and get the kitchen ready ourselves. Hopefully we are able to put it back together too
( biggest challenge is the sink). I am so excited about the granite, new sink, and faucet!! I am so excited to see how everything turns out. I cant wait to post bedore and after kitchen remodel pictures!

Good signs from the Garden!!!!

Lets rewind a year ago today.
May 16, 2011. I was very pregnant and it was very hot. As the summer went by, i got even more pregnant, and yes, it got even hotter. So needless to say our garden last year was far from award winning. This year, we are so excited about our garden. I even got our soil tested to make sure everything checked out good. We have tilled it, picked weeds, watered it, and checked up on it. Yesterday I saw our first tomato starting to grow AND a pretty good looking zuchini. I was a little excited. I think this i a good sign of a fruitful harvest to come!!

A sleeping miracle!

A sleeping miracle occured last night at our house. Alex slept in his crib from 9:10 to 7:45am. I couldn't believe it. I only checked on him 4 times, thats a good number right? Haha each time he was snoring so loudly, I knew he was ok. Icing on tge cake was that Max didnt wake up til 8! Alex has been an excellent sleeper the past month normally waiting til 4,5, or 6am before he wants to nurse, but he always goes back to sleep after that nurse, so that works good for me, but last night was perfect, knock on wood, let's see if we can do that again tonight!

Grandpa Lamb turn's 94

Grandpa Lamb turned 94 in March, so we headed down to Delight, AR to celebrate with the Lamb family.  It is a tradition that we always plan a weekend in March to travel down for Grandpa Lamb's Birthday. Shannon, Nathan, and the kids came down and stayed at MiMi's house, so it was a full house full of fun.  The kids all had fun driving around their cars, playing baseball, and a favorite - their glow in the dark necklaces. On Saturday we went over to Grandpa's house and celebrated his birthday.  It was so fun visiting with everyone, having lunch, eating a delicious cake, watching the kids play outside, and listening to Laura and Dave play some music.  I love the tradition of traveling down every March for Grandpa Lamb's Birthday.

Alex's 6 month pictures

We visited Delight in March, the same week Alex turned 6 month's old so we decided to take some 6 month pictures of our little guy. We took him over to Grandpa Lamb's barn and got some great photos.  Mike is such a talented photographer.

National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week

National Nurses Week 2012
Nurses: Advocating, Leading, Caring
Often described as an art and a science, nursing is a profession that embraces dedicated people with varied interests, strengths and passions because of the many opportunities the profession offers.

National Nurses Week is celebrated annually from May 6, also known as National Nurses Day, through May 12, the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

Max and Alex wanted to wish their MiMi and all of their other nursing friends a very Happy Nurses week!  Thank you for all of your hard work, dedication, and those "after hour nursing advise phone calls from family and friends".
