Planting seeds

The other day I spent a small fortune on fresh herbs. When I came home I told DH, that's it let's get a garden started.

Well today was that day. Everyone helped out, in some way or another (despite that fact that there is no proof ie. pictures that I worked, I promise I really did). Lil Sis decided to help and when she got bored she would prune the bush in the backyard. Everytime her shoes would get dirty she'd run and get another pair. I think she went through something like 5 pairs of shoes this afternoon. Big Sis was a big help and lasted the longest. She was way more interested in the process and even stabbed her dad by accident with her tool in her exuberance. We only finished one section. Tomorrow the work continues.

It felt good to get dirty and plant something. I can't remember ever planting a garden as a kid. I remember eating from the garden though! One summer visiting my Oma in Austria, I remember sneaking out of Sunday School at church and hiding in the garden out back with my friend eating raspberries. They were heavenly.

Lucky for me DH is quite adept at gardening. Thanks to his mom and dad's tutelage. Let's hope it all turns out well. I'm excited for "my" herbs and veggies.

What Big Sis picked to plant.
Disclaimer: I did not dress this child, she came up with this ensemble all on her own! She really needs helps. I mean three different patterns, stars, hearts, and flowers, yuk!

Just found ...

I was looking through some photos that my brother-in-law and sister-in-law had and found these gems. They are growing up so fast. Big Sis will be starting school this fall. Lil Sis believes that she will be attending with her sister. I better get geared up for her heart break.

Sad day

I love this Eames rocking chair, but the original is just way to much right now. I missed an awesome sale on the knock off at Overstock.
